      Rapido Trains Inc

      Table listing releases in model number order

      On Tuesday 25th April 2017, I published a News release from  Canadian model manufacturer Rapido Trains Inc:

      "Rapido Bus 3D Scanning Event: Canadian model bus company to do a 3D scan for its first British bus model, and the public is welcome!

      Markham, Ontario, Canada - Rapido Trains Inc. - Canada's foremost manufacturer of model trains and buses - has recently expanded into the British model market. Its recent offerings in OO and N gauge have each won "Model of the Year" in the British Model Railway Awards. Rapido's recently-announced 1/87 scale "Fishbowl" New Look Bus has turned the North American model bus market on its head, offering a level of detail never before seen in a small-scale bus, including full interior with individual seats, separate grab poles, steerable front wheels and working lighting.

      Now Rapido is turning to the British model bus market with its first 1/76 scale British bus model. The model will be announced at the Rapido Bus 3D Scanning Event on 16 July 2017 at the Transport Museum Wythall.

      Rapido will be doing a 3D scan of a real classic British double-decker bus in order to ensure that the model matches the actual shape precisely. Rapido Managing Director Jason Shron will be on hand to answer questions about the model, the model making process, and the history of the Canadian firm.

      Classic Birmingham City Transport and Midland Red buses will be operating on the day and rides are complimentary to all museum visitors, who will also receive complimentary badges and other Rapido swag. Complimentary tea and coffee will be provided, and light refreshments will be available to purchase.

      Where: The Transport Museum, Wythall. Chapel Lane, Wythall Worcestershire B47 6JX
      When: Sunday 16 July, noon to 3pm
      Cost: Regular admission prices - Adult ? child ? and Family (2+2) ?0 including free bus rides Web link:
      http://www.rapidouk.com/rapido-bus-3d-scanning-event

      Rapido Trains Inc. and the Transport Museum Wythall look forward to seeing you at the Rapido Bus 3D Scanning Event".

      On Sunday 16th July 2017, I published a second News release from Rapido Trains Inc, the day their public scanning took place at the Transport Museum Wythall:

      The most detailed 1:76 British bus model EVER.

      Rapido Trains Inc. announces revolutionary 1:76 scale Birmingham New Look Bus

      Wythall, UK - Award-winning Canadian model train and bus manufacturer Rapido Trains Inc. is delighted to announce its first British bus model, a 1:76 scale representation of the Birmingham City Transport "New Look" Guy Arab IV. The model will include details and features never before seen on a 1:76 model bus. 

      Rapido Trains Inc. has been producing models for the North American market since 2004. Last year, Rapido exploded onto the British model train market and was voted "manufacturer of the year" in both the Model Rail and British Railway Modelling magazine polls, with its first two model releases winning "model of the year" in their respective categories. Rapido is entirely run by train and bus enthusiasts, and has built its reputation by incorporating more detail than it was previously believed possible in small scale models.

      ABOUT THE BIRMINGHAM CITY TRANSPORT "NEW LOOK" BUS

      With the word "FORWARD" emblazoned beneath its coat of arms, the city of Birmingham has been the industrial and technological hub of the United Kingdom. Reflecting its home at the forefront of industrial development, the adoption of concealed radiators by Birmingham City Transport really made the industry sit up and take notice. 

      Under development from 1948 and delivered from 1950, the New Look buses gained their nickname from fashion designer Christian Dior's "New Look" dresses of the late 1940s. The Birmingham City Transport New Look had a radical impact on bus development in the 1950s, with variations of the New Look front appearing all over the country in subsequent years.

      Rapido's Birmingham New Look Bus model is a Guy Arab IV with Metro-Cammell body, one of 200 buses delivered between 1952 and 1954 (JOJ901-999, LOG300 and MOF3-102). These iconic buses featured one-piece body construction, a seating capacity of 55 (30 upper and 25 lower), and a tough Gardner 6LW engine. They were rugged and loud, growling through the streets of Birmingham for an entire generation.

      ABOUT THE MODEL

      Just as the Birmingham New Look revolutionized bus design, Rapido Trains Inc. presents a radically different approach to British bus models. Our model is based on a 3D scan of the real JOJ976 in the collection of the Transport Museum, Wythall. This ensures that all of the proportions match precisely to those of the real thing, especially the complex curves of the front and rear domes and the "New Look" bonnet itself.

      The 1:76 Birmingham New Look Bus will feature:
      - 100% accurate proportions based on a 3D scan of the real thing
      - Injection-moulded plastic and metal construction
      - All body weld lines, extrusions and rivets accurately rendered
      - Full, multi-coloured interior with no large posts blocking the aisles
      - Separate metal wire handrails and rear platform grab pole
      - Separate etched-metal interior grab poles
      - Steerable front wheels with rubber tyres
      - Flush-fitting windows 
      - Accurate, even paint finish that does not obscure the details
      - Several routes/destinations available plus blank destination with transfers included
      - Deluxe versions feature working headlamps and interior lighting
      - Deluxe versions also feature illuminated destination blinds
      - Deluxe versions require a 12V 500 mA DC power supply (not included)

      The RRP is ?9.95 (standard), ?9.95 (deluxe) Reservations may be placed now with your local model bus stockist or directly from www.RapidoUK.com

      Tooling and production progress will be reported regularly on Rapido's web site, Facebook page, YouTube channel and Twitter. Once a final pre-production model has been approved Rapido will announce an order deadline. Reserve by the deadline to guarantee delivery. The models will be delivered to customers in autumn 2018".

      On Sunday 2nd December 2018, Rapido Trains Inc announced a second casting and I published the following report:

      NEW MODEL ANNOUNCED BY RAPIDO TRAINS
      Many thanks to Bob Belcher, David Crozier, Neil Davies and Mike Harvey for advising me that Rapido Trains announced their second UK model in the form of the WMPTE Standard Fleetline at the Warley Model Railway show at the NEC last weekend. Bob Belcher kindly sent me three photographs from the show. Firstly, the Rapido Trains flyer on their stand, secondly a photograph of the real Fleetline that will be represented 6311 (KON311P), next to the Rapido stand and finally a photograph of pre-production samples of their first model the Birmingham Standard.
      Bob talked to the Rapido staff on their stand and it seems that it will still be some months before we see the first UK bus model (the Birmingham Standard), and the Fleetline may be some time away. Nevertheless, the indications are that it won't be their last UK model, with plans for detailed variations on the WMPTE version and also the possibility of other body shells using broadly the same interior, in future.

      The Rapido 1:76 Scale Leyland Fleetline will feature:
      ?100% accurate proportions based on field measurements of the real thing
      ?Injection-moulded plastic and metal construction
      ?All body weld lines, extrusions and rivets accurately rendered
      ?Full, multi-coloured interior with no large posts blocking aisles
      ?Separate etched-metal interior grab poles
      ?Steerable front wheels with rubber tyres
      ?Flush-fitting windows
      ?Accurate, even paint finish that does not obscure the details
      ?Several routes/destinations available
      ?Deluxe versions feature working headlamps & interior lighting
      ?Deluxe versions also feature illuminated destination blinds
      ?Deluxe versions require a 12V 500mA DC power supply (not included)
