Hi LT
the routemasters are double deckers but the bristol LL was a single decker http://www.32g.co.uk.../nnr_09_133.jpg

I know mine is not exact because of the rear curve and the sign being the wrong design but I think it works quite well
Thanks Daniel

Ah, I see....okay now first, use some of these Posted Image for roof ends plus sides of the back using SNOT, plus this on the front Posted Image....then you'll be getting closer to the one in the picture - though still not red ? :laugh: (only joking, damin)

Neat bus 'danim'. I like the new roof redesign much better! It looks much more like L5G. Keep up the good work Posted Image

Thanks  Leg Godt Gud I did not realise that the ll was the export version of the L5G so I suppose mine is a L5G rather than a LL

Thanks Lego Train 12 Volts, the rails are from the bricklingston tramway which is a slightly lenghtened and motorised version of the 8404 tram. more pics can be seen here http://www.eurobrick...pic=35990&st=30 soon to be updated


here is a little preview of my latest moc which is related to the bristol but you will not get a better view of the moc untill I have aquired all the peices
