For my next Build I have returned to OcCre as I like their kits.
The London Trolley Bus looks an interesting build, plenty of instructions, lots of bits.

Have started, pictures attached more to follow as I proceed

It looks like a great kit.
I've been tempted by this one myself, to motorize and run on my garden railway.

I'll be watching with interest.BigGrin

Morning Carl

Nice to see you back on the forum after your recent trials and tribulations with the weather.
After the problems I had with the Fokker build I decided to return to a company I have used before. Good quality parts, plenty of pictures and instructions this old gentleman can follow BigGrin BigGrin BigGrin

Will be adding more pictures as the build progresses

Gil, that looks a lovely kit you have there.
Occre do make some very nice stuff and. after building the model race car recently. it has certainly made me start to think about building other things rather than just HMS Victory.
I look forward to following your build diary.

Progress so far, Lower deck benches installed and varnished, flooring laid and painted. When laying the flooring I laid the first strip down the center of the floor. Each additional strip was then added, with a 1mm gap between each strip until the bench was reached. Made a nice neat even look.

I just read your Dr1 build diary.You really made a silk purse out of a sows ear with that one.It was a very challenging build when I did mine.I dont know if I ever told you but mine destroyed itself.I had it on a high shelf and it sat up there for about a year with no problems.One day I was across the room for it and I watched it slowly roll forward and nose dive off the shelf and land in a crumpled mess on the floor before I couldt get to it.

Hope all is good with you.

Could i please ask what sort of markings you have in this kit.

I purchased a number of occre kits a few years ago and at that time the markings were just laser printed onto plain paper. The idea being you cut them out and glue onto the kit.

I did read (i think) recently that the tram kits now come with self adhesive markings?

Thanks

Tony

I have found them very helpful if their are problems/missing/broken parts with their kits.
They replaced a full set of transfers on one of my train kits no problems at all

Had similar issues with missing parts from their kits so fairly sure they will be able to help.

Hope yours carries on well. Looks like a fun project.

Been a bit of slow progress with this build, Grandkids and decorating has got in the way.
Hopefully now back "on track" pun intended

End panels and sides added to the floor, The inside is varnished. I find it easier to paint/varnish some parts before construction contrary to the build instructions. Each to his own.

Next is to add the supports for the cross beams, once again I have painted these prior to gluing in place.
