    The 11 mtr will folow after Telford. Both version will have the option to add the middle set of doors too. It's an easy conversion.

    A long two door long pod mk1 would be good in NCB blue as Midland General.

    I need to stop dreaming.

    Yes you do Mr S... you need to start thinking AEC Reliance or Leyland Tiger Cub 45 seaters with Weyman or Willowbrook bodies instead as per wot used to be at Trent Buxton depot years ago :avatar::avatar::avatar:

    Things starting to come together for Telford now. Today I ordered the silicone and resin for the road vehicles and this week have been printing out the MK2f masters for white metal or resi castings. Bit more design work to do, but have all next week to do it while moulds are curing.

    A nice suprise was the arrival of the lost wax MK2 electric jumper sockets this morning. Note the 5mm spigot addition and where they put the feed...:facepalm:

    Just under two weeks to go until Telford. Silicone supplier short of material but didn't tell me until I rang them yesterday, ok send what you have - fingers crossed for Wednesday. Hoping for etch brass at end of week but they raised an issue there and haven't got back to me. 3d printer playing up and high failure rate on the bin lids. That and time wasted on a trip to the Hygenist and a meeting in Eastleigh. Going to be working through the night again.

    Oh dear Steve what a pickle you seem to be in... I notice you have removed your kitchen units and even taken the sink out as well :avatar::avatar:
