Forward Models - from Forward Models


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. 












A Glasgow bus from Forward Models
 
Forward 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 bodies.
    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. 

 







And also Manchester
 
This model depicts one of the late 1954 batch of Daimler CVG6K buses with MCCW bodies. These buses lasted until transfer to SELNEC in 1969.
    Numbered 4474 (NNB 284), the model is on route 95 to East Didsbury. It carries advertisements for Crawford’s Cream Crackers and Heinz Ketchup, printed to Forward Models’ usual high standards. A separate sheet of transfers will provide four other destinations. The red and cream livery is the original colour scheme from the 1950s.
