Forward Models present their new range of buses
from the ‘GLORY DAYS’ of municipal transport;
the ones we remember with half-cabs and ‘tin fronts’.
The first models are due to arrive in May or June 2018
after being delayed repeatedly. The first will be Daimlers
from Glasgow and Manchester to be launched at
Manchester Museum of Transport on 24 March.
Order yours in advance for £52.50 (SRP £58) from our partner site my-collection.co.uk or shop here.

Models has announced that deliveries of its Glasgow Daimler will begin in May
2018. The new model depicts one of the 1955 batch of Daimler CVG6 buses with Weymann
Numbered D69 (FYS 524), the model is
running on route 11 to Yoker. It carries advertisements for OMO soap powder and
Rentaset Televisions, printed to Forward Models’ usual high standards. A
separate sheet of transfers will provide four other destinations. The green and
orange livery is the original colour scheme from the 1950s.
These new models are packaged in Forward
Models’ new ‘see-through’ carton. A stylish acrylic box top allows the model to
be seen when displayed. The new package also carries a new logo, based on the
tin front bonnet badge.
This is the first model of a series to
commemorate the glory days of the British bus and the last of the municipal
half-cabs. Later this year, there will be more models from Manchester,
Rotherham, Belfast, Coventry, Cardiff and West Bromwich.
The suggested retail price is £58.00 but
you can order and pay today for £52.50 each with free delivery.
