Out of the box this one -- once again, a delightful kit to build.

Some purist may tell you that the colour is wrong for BRS, they were colour coded by type I believe.

But so what! I think that looks great and having seen the decal sheets for these kits its a shame not to use them cos they are very good.

Oh yeah -- the colors are wrong for BRS ... but it's my build so I get to choose the colors. 'Twas the same for the tipper I built.

Oh I've just realised why it looks familiar.

My mam is from Birmingham, (a big city in the Midlands for our non UK friends) and as a kid I went down there to visit family. Now I was used to buses being light blue (North Yorks) or red (West Yorks) but Birmingham Corporation buses were dark blue and cream, just like your model.

Should read "Our mam is from Brum" lol Whistle Whistle (that'll confuse some!!)

I agree Bren, colours look right, it could be the Brummy branch of BRS Whistle Whistle

Midlands BRS was a mid blue shade, I think Think

Sorry its 'Mutha' up here, as in "Aw, Mutha man stop nagging is" (How can you say Man to a woman). Started something now!

Nice colourful Bedford Brendan, the kit is a delight to build and its hard to just give it a plain livery.

Nos.

Well, my dad's from Liverpool area (Frodsham / Ellesmere Port) -- thankfully I don't have a Liverpool accent otherwise the locals in Taiwan wouldn't understand a word I say!
