      Britbus - Scania Omnidekka - Go North East "Toon Link" 6126 (GX03SUY). Omnidekka Models have published an image of the proposed model, although I am unfortunately unable to publish it due to the Bus Company wishing it to be published on their Facebook page first before elsewhere'.

      Due to the results of a recent Corgi Poll on the Omnidekka Models Updates Facebook Page, Mr Chris Cotton announced recently that "I am changing the model I was going to do from the NX Caetano Levante FJ12FXZ to Stagecoach Wright Gemini MK1 FJ04FZB but this bus could change when Corgi get back to me as I have emailed them today. Pease add any pictures of routes you may like to be done?

      NEWS FROM RAPIDO
      Rapido have released their Rapido UK Newsletter No. 9 email earlier today and have advised of an issue with the lighting on their new Fleetline and Guy Arab models.

      "We started getting reports just as this issue closed for press that using a 12V power supply to light up our most recent buses was causing the circuit boards to fail. We've discovered that the factory has installed a voltage regulator with an incorrect setting. They are perfectly safe at 9V but please do not use them with 12V as this will likely blow the circuit. If you have faulty lights, please drop us a line here."

      NORTHCORD MODEL COMPANY - PRESS RELEASE
      The following press release has been received from the Northcord Model Company this morning:

      UKBUS6524 ADL Enviro400 MMC - Stagecoach North West ?The Lakes Connection 555

      Following the significant success in launching the brand new casting of the Alexander Dennis Enviro400 MMC model in the liveries of National Express West Midlands, Stagecoach in Oxfordshire, Bluestar, Stagecoach West Scotland, Southern Vectis, Stagecoach South, Ensign Bus and Xplore Dundee, Northcord Model Company is now releasing the twelfth livery on the 10.9 metre long, single-door casting ?UKBUS6524 in the livery of Stagecoach North West with full branding for route 555 The Lakes Connection.

      10555 (SN16ONX) is one of 12 Alexander Dennis Enviro400 MMCs that were introduced for the Lakes Connection network in 2016 and that are now part of the Stagecoach Cumbria and North Lancashire fleet. Within the batch, 10552 ?10563, the first seven share the same branding as on the model for route 555 and the final five feature a different list of destinations, albeit on the same base livery.

      The bus that was chosen as the subject for UKBUS6524 is particularly auspicious due to the connection between the route number and the final three digits of the fleet number: 555. UKBUS6524 carries a full, branded livery for route 555, showing the destination to Keswick. The special, comprehensive livery and branding are 100% reproduced onto the UKBUS6524 model. The stand-out features of the branding are : 揻ree WiFi, USB charging?on all sides, and the name of every main stop 揔eswick, Grasmere, Windermere, Kendal, Lancaster?on both sides, and 摚11.30 ALL DAY into and around the Lakes?on the rear.

      The bus is fitted with Lazzerini seating, covered in E-Leather, total seating capacity is 74. Designed by Ray Stenning of Best Impression, the livery promotes, both inside and outside the bus, the attractions and landscape of the Lake District.

      The Alexander Dennis Enviro400 MMC UKBUS6524 is a one-piece casting whose clean lines accentuate the square, gasket-mounted windows and the livery application on which all logos and lettering are clearly legible. Another main feature on the UKBUS6524 model is its single tree protector at the front. The front dome on the model is significant, with curved windscreens on both upper deck and lower deck.

      Northcord Model Company is also creating new design standards within the interior of both saloons. These features, inside the compartments, will represent the real, outstanding layout of the Enviro400 MMC, such as the extensive portrayal of handrails on upper deck and lower deck, etc

      The brand new 10.9 metre Enviro400 MMC bus models will be distributed by John Ayrey Die-Casts Limited (UK), Porte Publishing Company (Japan), 80M Bus Model Shop and Concorde Hobby Shop (HK) respectively. The UKBUS6524 model is limited to 888 pieces worldwide.

      PHOTOGRAPHS OF RECENTLY RELEASED CORGI MODELS AND A SERIOUS ERROR
      Please see photographs of the two Corgi OOC 揜elease the Kraken?New Routemaster models (OM46638A&B) released last week. Unfortunately, there is a serious error, in that the models were advertised to represent LT716 (LTZ1716). Unfortunately, whilst the roof markings and fleet number show 716, the registration numbers have not been changed from the two previous Kraken models (OM46624A&B) and still show the registration numbers as LTZ1192. On the plus side, the livery has been very well applied and I do like the packaging!
