Toy Artics in Big W.

These appear to be roughly based on the Mercedes Citaro.
I would have considered buying one if they didn't have the extra axle at the rear.
Note all the doors. This points to it being the expected amount these days.

Look at all the doors!

Would get the Tonyp tick of approval. Was it low floor throughout?

Going by the gap behind the back door (for possible mechanical or cooling components), it should be but it looks like they omitted that feature throughout!
Those black dashes you see above the doors are actually knurled wheels that open and shut the doors. It also has friction drive. I would have loved this as a little kid.

That is based on a real model, the Mercedes-Benz CapaCity, basically a longer Citaro artic with an extra axle and one or two extra doors.
