3D bus scan party!

Guy Arab being 3D scanned

Bus enthusiasts are weird.

I mean, why would you fly all the way from Canada to scan a Birmingham bus? And then why would you decide it's a sensible commercial decision to produce this in 1:76 scale with breathtaking levels of detail? 

Jason seems very taken by the Guy Arab bus he has decided to produce. No Routemasters for him, it has to be Brum!

Bus nuts are crazy

Maybe they didn't get a proper teddy bear as a child? Imagine what cuddling a WMPTE toy could do to a person?

Cuddly WMPTE

Actually, it was a good fun day. Jason and Gareth from Rapido are excellent entertainment. We got to see a bus lifted up in the air. Wythall Transport museum is full of fascinating stuff if you like old road vehicles. The cake is good too.

I'm sure it is.

However, I don't know if you'd get the same view from people who prefer their old road vehicles to have a blue triangle above the radiator … .

While on the subject of transport museums, I wonder if anyone at the scan party expressed an interest in any of the amazing (and beautifully presented) collection of motorcycLes near Bickenhill. Now that is one museum that could really do with a decent bus service.
