1/32 573 Airfix 1914 WWI Old Bill Troop Transport Bus - (1910 Type B Bus)
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good-
Rare 1960s Type Three Logo issue of the Military Version of the Type B Civil bus. During WWI, the British pressed these London buses into military service with modifications, the most obvious being the boarded-up sides. Quite a number were shipped overseas. They were used at Flanders as troop transports and ambulances. Airfix had access to 'Ole Bill,' which still exists and was representative of the buses sent to Flanders. Airfix took the already well detailed Type B Bust kit and added a big sheet of completely colored and decorated 'wood' sides and badges, adding 6 detailed military figures with accessories and molding the kit in Khaki. Includes green side panels, military driver and troops, over 100 parts, complete interior and dashboard, suspension, exhaust and drive line detail and more. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes side panels instructions. Please NOTE: the box top has closed tears which have been taped from behind.
