Thanks guys for your really nice posts.

Sanded and painted the roof, fixed up the signboards, added those awnings ( don't know what
to call them but they look like small white awnings over the windows)
using styrene quarter round stock,, added the license
plates that took so long to find, made door handles (could find no evidence of an outside
door handle on the driver's door), added the cast resin light housings on the roof, and a
windshield wiper with the rubber represented with black styrene and a silver wire arm.






TED, Here's the blond you wanted.

Bob,

A beautiful creation. Great job engineering those curves.

Your bus is pretty nice too.

Bob, your work is always great to watch, and pleasing to look at!
I hope you will photograph this bus next to your previously built station, when it's finally completed.

Mike - Sneaky, very sneaky, but I like it.

Dave - thanks much

Greg - I had the bus terminal in storage and it has sustained some damage. I do intend to fix it
up but not right now. I do however have a plan for some photos when this bus is completed.
More on that later.

Bob

Is that Norma Jeane Mortenson (A.K.A. Norma Jeane Baker) on her way to the Bus Stop?
the bus came out really nicely, Bob.

Did a lot of final "little things" to get this model done. I carved the rear awning from wood
and roughed it up a bit to look like loose material. Added rear view mirrors, horns (made
from two plastic model trumpets) front and rear running lights and applied the main decals and
the destination sign.

I want to take a few more photos to finish things off.

I watched you create this bus and I still look at the final photos and think "HOW DID HE DO THAT?"
GREAT JOB, BOB

Bob, Another winner! Hope the weather is good and you can shoot more shots. Also hope the bus depot itself isn't in too rough shape.
