Hong Kong Bus - Enviro 500 Turbo

Post by AdamYip » Fri Jul 29, 2016 7:03 am

This bus is huge in size and the details were amazing. Hope to see more Hong Kong transportation being made in 1/43.

I wonder if this is the biggest ever 1:43 model produced ? It's strange that no one has ever done (to my knowledge) a highly detailed 1:43 model of a London "double-decker" bus ?

I think Altaya is releasing a series of 1/43 buses from different parts of the world, including an old Hong Kong bus and a GM Greyhound. I'm sure a double decker London bus is on their list.

Nice addition! Maybe your diorama is just too small for this beast :)

Maybe it would be the NEO Neoplan double decker with semi-trailer?

I've never seen that NEO bus before. It must be HUGE (and I guess has a price tag to match !).

Have seen one in person only in the Nuremberg Toy Fair several years ago, but here is a pic of a friend's sample:

Note that the buses on the left are regular city buses..
