Bob, your bus is looking fabulously good. I'll bet the bodies were built by a/several suppliers just as the trucks beds where.

Simply in-creditable Bob', What a builder you are'. Great job on stretching out that frame. That is also a very good foundation for the bus body.
That must be a big six with a lot of torque to pull that baby'..

Wow Bob,
I sure admire your ability to create almost anything from scratch.

Thanks guys.

Here the shape of the hood and cowl are worked in. For the curved tops I used pieces of a resin
product that I had on hand from an old project. I think it was called "RenShape". I see that it
needs more sanding but it does carve and sand quite well.

This looks really good, Bob. I'm fascinated by the process that will get you the "correct" hood and cowl shapes. Always wondered how that was/is done.

Thanks Pete.

Here's some work on the back end, the framing above is for the curved back windows and the area
below will be a compartment for two spare tires.

Bob,
Looks great!
Are the front end hood and cowl several pieces or one carved piece?

Thanks Ted.

Like everything else about these buses, there seems to be some confusion about the seating
arrangements. It looks to me that the seating for the "parlor coach" which I am trying to
build, is arranged like the restored bus and the 1/50 model. No matter which arrangement is
modeled I will need a lot of seats. I do not plan a lot of detail on the interior because you
can see very little but it would look quite empty without seats.

Shown are my masters for the seat pairs, some light housings, and the roof vents. Then the
mold, and then the first castings. I will be resin casting for a while.
