This time I bring an old style double decker bus to share with yours. And this Daimler SF Fleetline is my favourite double decker bus style.

A 80s Hong Kong double decker bus of CMB China Motor Bus. CMB.

CMB had ended their business in 1997. So this is our memoris now. Daimler SF Fleetlines, 

This is my first double decker bus creation, try to make it in 8 studs in order to play in LEGO road basepaste and other LEGO vehicles.

Thanks for your watching and comment

Nice one, Andy.

We used to have double deckers in Sydney that were quite similar. It was always great when you could get a seat up the front of the top deck.

:classic: :classic:

I prefer six-wide vehicles myself, but with eight-wide you do get a lot more detail in. After seeing the first pictures, I really liked your double-decker, especially how you made it a modular design. But after having seen the last pictures, of the scale model, I am even more impressed. You've captured the shape exellently. Well done!

I think we see one of these buses in the movie Police Story, with Jackie Chan swinging from the outside by an umbrella.

but now, this type of classic bus is disappear in HK... :(

Sadly the Sydney ones are gone now too.

It is a great background. :)

Very nice and accurate!

I adore the rear of the bus!! :sweet:

Mr RedGiant,

Thanks for your kind comments. :)

Mr L@go, thanks for your kind comments. I love your car too! For my creation, I perfer six width for the vehicles such as van or lorry. Four width for the small car. Eight width only for the train. I had try to build a double decker bus in six width before, but the outlook is do ugly, the bus is too high and look too thin. So I find that it is better to build double decker bus in eight width. :)And this is my first time to build a vehicles (expect the train)in eight width. :)

No double deckers here, EVER. :cry_sad: Anyways, always good to see them in Lego form. :classic:

Great and very detailed creation. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Andy. This is Matt. I met you at Bricks Adventure this year. I wanted to let you know that I really love your bus, and it looks identical to the real thing. Do you plan on making more buses? How about this one? :wink:

I actually want to make a Hong Kong double decker tram (trolley/streetcar), but it is so hard to find the parts I want in dark green. I'm guessing at some point, you will try to make one of those.

Keep on building!

Matt

Hi Matt,

Thanks for your kind comments.

We are planning to have an Old Hong Kong area in Brick Adventure next year.

There are many different type of double decker bus in Hong Kong thirty years ago.

And I love these classic bus very much!

This is the first double decker bus I build. And I will build more later.

Your photo and the bus you had seen in Hong Kong this year is modern style bus.

There is a expert builder call "legokinsfolk" You can search his name in brickshelf and you can see his bus model.

For the double decker tram, William will brick it! Haha.."

Andy :)
