Well, I finished my NJ Transit Commuter bus (And my homework of course, still actually have to study though).

Its the first one I made without tape on the outside, and uses mainly just the tabs and glue. I must say, it looks a hundred times better without all the tape.







Tape, and no tape.

Collector's Corner : Model Bus, New York City, New York City Model Bus, Corgi Bus, Model bus from Canada

Shows how good of a bus it was for the east bloc! I have made a nice fleet of the 260 (non-bendy) in 1/500ish in paper from a scaled down 1/87th example. I'll try to look around for photos of them on the machine. If not, then I'll try to make a fresh bunch of photos.

Now that is full of win right there. It is an awesome little Gorbi model though. Now all we need is Regan, Thatcher, Wałęsa and Honecker, and a fleet of Chinese tanks we'd have the whole of major world politics of the 1980s done in paper!

Ah Buildings too!
T Gauge: Products
This site has a few paper resources on buildings itself actually. Good thing about T-Gauge is the scale difference is so "meh" right now, it can be used for both 1:400 and 1:500!

Most of these buildings, when printed full-size, will be close to 1:400/500.

OK I have completely revised my paper bus fleet. Switched over to the bigger, more popular scale, more detailed scale. I am really impressed by the way these turned out, just beautiful. Laser printers work wonders!

'07 MCI D4500CT





'08 Alexander-Dennis Enviro 500





Mississauga Transit

Thank you, the billboards are from the Yahoo group. In the TTC section. But they probably only suit the Toronto area buses. I chose not to put them on my Mississauga models since the newer '08 models don't have them, other wise I would have. And GO buses don't have any billboards at all.

Oh, yeah. They're part of the grapejuice TTC section. The ads make them look all the more 'used'. Buses seem too clean without them.

My NJ Transit fleet

These aren't all the same scale, I try to use the 'Risesoon/Skymarks" method of using the maximum size on the paper.

I see used to see these buses everyday. There's a bus stop in front of my town's middle school, and the road would always be full of traffic (people trying to get to work, or parents trying to get their kids to school). Now I get to see mostly school buses.

They look great! Did you purposely add the antennae/hatch on the roofs? I print my buses at 89% of the regular size. Next time I'll also take the pictures on my laptop.

The antennae are part of the sheet, so I add them, yes. It would seem like I didn't actually finish the them if there were still parts left over (excluding bike racks).

I think I'll try printing out the next ones at the same sizes. That way they'll all be uniform.

I don't even know why they put them. It would be hard as heck to get them perfect. Maybe a hobby knife would help, but I still think it would be too complicated.

Wow those look nice...and complicated. The small commercial truck (looks like an Izuzu or Mitsubishi) could be modified into a catering truck I guess.

I won't even try.

Looks nice, a bit shorter than the regular 40 footers I'm guessing? The battery packs/AC unites can be a bit difficult.

Yup, the one depicted is a 35' footer. I think they operate both 35's and 40's though.

My school library just bought a new laser printer! Time to go print some new buses! The difference between a regular household inkjet and a business laser printer is just amazing.

My next projects will be one of these:

TPB Premium - 屬於你的紙巴士網站

Probably a Kowloon double decker (http://hk.geocities.com/tpb_kmb/kmb-avw35.png)

This site has some Hong Kong airport buses (CX etc..) if anyone is interested, could be nice to go along with models.

Try some retro Hong Kong buses too, there are some China Motor Buses.
In the mean time, here's some retro buses from the North and East coasts;

Now all we need is a bunch of paper L trains.....

Latest addition to my fleet of NJ Transit paper buses.

First saw an actual one of these with my own eyes in Jersey City during the summer. The front looks kinda odd, but still neat.

My apologies for the pics being so dark.

The actual thing:

After looking at that I realized I put the battery pack to far back.

Wow that is a nice edition. Your buses are always so neat and tidy . Well I have finally mastered the art of making bellows! I added some to my London artic and some roof A/C units too. Next will be this hybrid bus (notice all the roof units ). Will post pics later today.

Thanks! They probably only look tidy because of the lighting though.

About your next one; New York's MTA also operates buses of those type. I printed the sheet out, but I'm afraid of all the roof equipment so that will probably be saved for last.

Yes, the one I have is in the TTC livery (Toronto Transit Commission). The roof equipment will be a challenge. I am starting it soon! Will post pics after.

Finally finished the TTC bus and some other stuff.

1. TTC Orion VII New Generation with added billboards:

Need to redo the aft AC unit.





2. Finally mastered the art of bellows! They are perfect, so much better than my first one. I will definitely be making more artics in the future.


3. Not a bus but a very large (1:12) scale Canada Post mail box.




4. I have successfully painted my first paperbus. It is a fictional airport bus in the KLM livery:

Nice ones! I tried painting a blank too, but it didn't end out well. There was a design that was way too complicated.

Also, I found this link to some paper A330s. You need to download the files though, so it isn't as simple as the bus links (What's holding me back from getting it). I'll wait for someone else to try it first.

Airbus A330-234 Garuda Indonesia | Airliners

There are many other things on the site as well, like cars, buildings, such and such.

Also, a KMB Cathay Pacific advertisement bus.

Cathay Pacific Paper Bus

Probably one of the cleanest ones I've made.

Nice! That website is awesome! I made a Concorde model back in June but it was just regular paper, not very good. The A330 looks very complicated. They have some very odd things on that site, like the H1N1 container (H1N1 Virus Container | Others). I am still looking for a USPS mail box, but still no luck.

Oh, just checked. Ryan's TTC Photos site is back up. It may not have the best models, but they are simple enough so when you shrink them, you can put them together a bit more easily (I'm going to try to shrink it to approx. 1/200).

I wonder if there will be paper versions of the VIVA bus.

btw...the most common maker of TTC buses has the same name as my first name...see if you can figure it out

Nice job on the Qantas! Pretty odd looking bus though, hehe.

I tried to make my own airport bus livery for 1/200 scale. Its entirely fictional (I think), and I'm not sure if D40LFRs can be used on airports (Can any bus be used on airports, or do they have to be specially made for airport use?).

Sorry for the lighting again. These were all taken at night, so the shadows are really dark.

With a little Herpa person for size comparison. Looks about right, maybe a bit big.

I tried to make my own airport bus livery for 1/200 scale. Its entirely fictional (I think), and I'm not sure if D40LFRs can be used on airports (Can any bus be used on airports, or do they have to be specially made for airport use?)
Any bus can be used for an airport. The D40LFR is used as shuttles at some airports.

Ok, thanks for that. Now I don't have to look for another template.

Just as a note, I used the D40LFR demo model from Ryan's TTC site. It has the simplest livery (all grey), so it's the easiest to repaint in MSpaint.

All credit for the original model and template go to the creator of the Ryan's TTC site.

Hello everyone.

I'm the webmaster of Ryan's TTC Photos: Ryan's TTC Photos / D.Y. Transit Express

I've noticed that many of you have built some of the paperbuses on my site, and they're looking great. I understand that they're a bit difficult to build because they're a smaller scale, and some have many details (i.e. A/C units, articulated joints). I'd like to also mention that we are in the process of adding tabs to each paperbus and to any new paperbuses being made, as they have been lacking them for the longest time. Hopefully, this will aid all you paperbus builders, and myself as well. If any of you have any questions or requests, you can e-mail me. Requests may take a while to be processed as I'm pretty busy nowadays. I have a backlog of new paperbuses to add to my site, so stay tuned.

I myself have a paperbus collection, but all my models are blank because they are "test models". I build them to ensure the folds work before applying liveries to them and posting them online. Photos of my blank fleet can be found here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/r-flore...7614703134271/

Anyway, keep up with the great paperbus building.

-Ryan

Nice job and thank you for making those paper models. When I first read this thread, clicked the link, and made my first bus, I immediately got addicted.

Keep it up.

Thanks for making all the paper buses Ryan! I love them! Even though I have switched to the bigger scale, I started of with your models and immediately got addicted! Your database of Canadian transit bus pics is also very impressive.

BTW what brought you to this site? Just curious

Two more that I made recently. A NYCMTA Orion VII (Hybrid electric version) and a Rutgers NovaBus LFS.

Paper Buses

Lots of roof stuff on this one.












I had to use a little bit of tape for some of the roof units unfortunately.
