Part 3


The complete bodyshell was resprayed, first in etching primer, and then into the NBC Tyne & Wear yellow livery using coach enamels.  Underframe and wheelarches are sprayed with a gunmetal finish, and the wheels are in NBC light grey.  The original interior was salvaged, given a good clean and resprayed in grey.


Photos here show the body after it had been resprayed, and then a few weeks later once it had been fully fitted out and finished with an Acrylic clear coat applied.  Windscreen frames are also airbrushed in yellow.


A spare set of transfers was used to depict former Gateshead & District Atlantean no.91 (KCN891) working route 28 to Fawdon.


Work on this model was carried out between July - September 2014 and it was subsequently resold on eBay as a one-off.
