Blue Mountain Volvo Olympian

Post by wyth »

After 3 years of no CMNL models and a big wishlist, I decided to send a CMNL Volvo Olympian off to Dream Bus Model to be "converted" to a Blue Mountain city tour bus, I took the pic outdoors and am really happy with the results and hope you's like it, I have an extra special vintage down under near completion and think its gonna get a lot of attention!!!! watch this space....

Awesome. It looks pretty good. I can't get over how realistic it looks though! Great work!

Just clicked on this topic again after a long time and I thought it was a photo of a Blue Mountains ex UK Olympian paying a visit to the Sydney Bus Museum.
I had completely forgotten about this thread.

Only thing is the fuel required may prove problematic, same reason they likely won't receive a Scania L113 CRB, which seem to be getting withdrawn in earnest atm.
