Default 1/400 BA bus

Hello everyone, we are the new manufacturer for 1/400 and 1/200 airport accessories and GSE. We are now planning for the 1/400 airport bus.

One of the design will be BA livery. We are hoping to receive your comment of the livery that we are going to release in the future.

Well if you did the modern bus, you could cover Gatwick too, can't find a good picture, but here's a recent news item with one in view....

The landor and BOAC buses would be great, but not on a modern bus

I'd take a modern bus and anything with 1970's Negus detail. Some similarly themed GSE and airstairs too...

I would love to see the Optare Delta even in 1/76 if not 1/200/400

Used at Heathrow as inter-terminal transport and in British Airways Utopia (World Tails) scheme so plenty of variations to do.

Nooo! You cannot produce fantasy models - modern buses with retro liveries!! Please do this properly and make authentic models - either make new moulds of the types of buses you have posted to stick to modern liveries on your modern bus.

+2!! Authentic models please! If genuine older vehicles are not possible (i.e BEA/BA RMA, BOAC/BA Leyland Atlantean/British Airways Leyland National etc., then just stick with modern. Better it's done right - or not at all








An MCW Metrobus AIRBUS would be cool as well:





BA Leyland Nationals & Bedford Vans:

Thanks! Sold out long ago, I see. Nothing on evilBay, either.

Welcome. Keep looking occasionally - one is sure to turn up sometime. I've seen them now and again at various model shows in the past (in the UK). Next time I'm at a Bus Rally/Fair, I'll keep an eye out. Actually one might show up at the Gatwick Fair in April, too.

Have a look at www.ttcdiecast.com Search British Airways. They have one for sale at £21.25. They're based in Derby.

Thanks for providing this link - not heard of them before, they've got some brilliant prices there!
