Corgi Collectors Club 2013 - New Bus For London 7 years, 7 months ago #1

Got it at last.


This is the third time I've become a member of the Corgi Collectors Club.


I find that collecting these vehicles makes for a very unique collection.


Took a while but received the bus at long last. This be #603 of 750 made worldwide Limited Edition models. To be precise, a scale 1/76 which is the same scale as Corgi Juniors or what ever they call them nowadays 'New Bus For London' #38 Victoria, 'Singin' In The Rain'. Complete with COA and corresponding number OM46603 on the box.

That looks very nice and has some great details too. Love the rear staircase.

Is this the bus that was designed by Aston Martin

Hi Niall, according to the card they've made liveries for eight West End Shows at least in the UK.

Hi Tomte, yes, this is the Aston Martin-Foster designed bus.

Just happy to have the one unique for my CCC collection.

This is supposed to be the new Routemaster, a very attractive model. Nice score.

I think in this case collecting all eight would be more interesting.

Theo, I think you'll the high detail of this bus.

I used the flash so you all can see the internals

I've wanted this particular bus for two years. Well worth the wait (frustrating too)

A very intersting article, thanks for that Jay,


I would really like to come over to London and travel a few miles on one.


The comments given were harsh, sometimes even insulting.


But I don't mind, I am a bus lover and I really love this Routemaster II.
