New 1/76 service vehicle kits

Some news provided by Clive Greedus:

.
Thanks to Tony Asquith his Little Bus Company are now taking advance orders for new 1/76 scale service vehicle kits that should be ready 2015/6.(Reserve now, pay later). The models above are scratchbuilt but the kits will be similar. On the left, LT's standard stores and towing lorries from 1939 till the mid sixties on ex AEC Regal (T) and Regent (STL) bus chassis, will be represented by 447W. In the centre is 1018J, the shelter carrier converted from an STL, served 1954-61. On the right, railway breakdown tender 110J is older than the kit model which will be 832J, one of those on ex STL chassis that served buses as well as railways. The van roof will be lower and there'll be no cab top sign. IMHO this is the best LTSV modelling news in years!

Update on Little Bus Company service vehicles

As of 16th March 2015 the patterns for 832J are complete, as are the drawings for the other two. More orders are required for the 447W stores/towing lorry if both the skirted and unskirted versions are to be produced, so contact Tony Asquith via the LBC website with your orders if you dont want to miss out. Unfortunately its not possible to have separate skirts without a hefty increase in moulding costs, but it may be possible to have the skirted version (as in the picture) made so as to allow them to be cut off, though chassis detail might be compromised.
