Rapido to reveal its first UK double-decker

Canadian model bus and train manufacturer Rapido will reveal details of its first 1:76-scale British bus model in July.

It is preparing a three-dimensional scan of a preserved classic British double-decker to ensure that the model is is as faithful as is possible to the shape and detail of the original full-size vehicle.

It remains tight-lipped about what the model will be but will reveal its identity — with the 3D scan — at The Transport Museum in Wythall, near Birmingham on Sunday 16 July. Normal museum admission charges will apply.
