|These instructions describe the construction of a model of an up-to-date single-deck midibus of unitary construction - no chassis. The engine is below the rear floor but the main floor is flat and low to allow wheelchairs to be carried.
The model can be made from a Meccano 10 set and PDU or Decaperm-sized motor. With two-speed and reverse gearbox, suspension (front half springs and dummy rear air bags) and steering. The full interior contains the correct 21+3 tip-up seats and a complete floor. The flush-fitting twin leaf doors open, close and lock from the driver's position. Varying the strip and plate colours produces a wide range of liveries
This leaflet consist of 20 pages of construction description, colour photographs and parts list, with a separate 12 page leaflet of construction diagrams
Please note these Model Plans are designed by individual Meccano modellers and may use parts not currently available. The level of instruction detail is dependent on the original modeller and varies from plan to plan. These are instructions only.
