Following the significant success in launching the brand new casting of the Alexander Dennis Enviro400 MMC model in the liveries of National Express West Midlands, Stagecoach in Oxfordshire, Bluestar, Stagecoach West Scotland, Southern Vectis, Stagecoach South, Ensign Bus, Xplore Dundee and Stagecoach North West, Northcord Model Company is now releasing the fourteenth livery on the 10.9 metre long, single-door casting – ukbus 6525 in the livery of First Glasgow.

ukbus 6525 represents fleet number 33393 (SK19 EOD) that was new to First Glasgow in early 2019. 33393 carries a full and colourfully branded livery for route 77, heading to Glasgow Airport. Such unique feature, and the special, comprehensive livery and branding are 100% reproduced onto the ukbus 6525 models.

The stand-out features of the branding are : “from every 10 mins” and “free WiFi” at the front; the big “77” on both sides and rear, along with key locations served “City Centre, Partick, QEU Hospital, Braehead, Renfrew, Glasgow Airport” on the nearside; “Frequent service to / from city centre from every 10 minutes”, “Pay contactless”, “Your best route to ... QEU Hospital – Braehead – Airport” on the rear.

Further additional details carried by the model include the luggage rack in the lower saloon, and the special sunlight protection shads on the top of both windscreens.

The Alexander Dennis Enviro400 MMC ukbus 6525 is a one-piece casting whose clean lines accentuate the square, gasket-mounted windows and the livery application on which all logos and lettering are clearly legible. Another main feature on the ukbus 6525 model is its single tree protector at the front. The front dome on the model is significant, with curved windscreens on both upper deck and lower deck.

Northcord Model Company is also creating new design standards within the interior of both saloons. These features, inside the compartments, will represent the real, outstanding layout of the Enviro400 MMC, such as the extensive portrayal of handrails on upper deck and lower deck, etc.

The brand new Enviro400 MMC bus models will be distributed by John Ayrey Die-Casts Limited (UK), Porte Publishing Company (Japan), 80M Bus Model Shop and Concorde Hobby Shop (HK) respectively. The ukbus 6525 model is limited to 1008 pieces worldwide.

Corgi Online Exclusive OOC Models Not Exclusive!
I reported on Tuesday that Corgi had released the two models below, and that the Corgi website product pages had been amended to state that both models are "Website Exclusives" with a price of £46.99, however these models have also been distributed to model wholesalers and are now making their way to model retailers.

I've checked the Corgi website tonight and both models are still misleadingly marked as Web Exclusives.

The two OOC AEC Routemaster models announced in the previous catalogue, issued in January, are still outstanding.

OM46317 Blackpool Transport (Pontin's Holiday Club Livery / RM848 WLT 848 - Route 40 Pontin's) - AEC Routemaster Bus

Recent Britbus Model Releases Clarification
To clarify the situation with the two Britbus models released to model retailers recently (See May 1 News Report), these are from the original run of models commissioned by Omnidekka Models.

Chris Cotton is supplying the models to wholesaler John Ayrey Diecast, due to tax & VAT changes he has ceased distributing the models directly to model retailers.
Due to the wholesaler costs, the models will be more expensive compared to buying directly from the Omnidekka Models online store.
Note: The Omnidekka Models website address has changed from omnidekkamodels.com to omnidekkamodels.co.uk due to new rules relating to payment sites based in the UK.

Tuesday 17 May

The following models are now available to order direct from the Corgi Online Store, like the two new models announced last week, it turns out these are now listed as "Website Exclusives" on the Corgi Online Store. They are priced £46.99 each plus delivery.

Update 19 May
Despite claims on the Corgi site of these both being Web Exclusives, they are NOT and are being distributed by trade wholesalers to other model retailers.

The two OOC AEC Routemaster models announced in the previous catalogue, issued in January, are still outstanding.

OM46317 Blackpool Transport (Pontin's Holiday Club Livery / RM848 WLT 848 - Route 40 Pontin's) - AEC Routemaster Bus - General Release
