Next tasks are to fit out and paint the coach and cab interiors, fit the glazing, add the seating and finally the step lights.

 

And the motor coach exhausts.

I should have said “representations” of the step lights.  I’m not intending to add actual step lights like leds or anything.


Sorry if this is a disappointment.

 

Cheers

The were cut from a strip cut from a larger sheet of black coloured plasticard, gripped in the jaws of some small pliers and given rounded ends with a scrap of sandpaper.

Once glued in place the front face was given a coat of BR light grey.

We moved to Belfast in 1978 so I never got to ride in a MED - just the 70 and 80 Class units.
