Lego Airport bus
I created the lego Airport bus using the Lego Digital Designer on my laptop at home. I chose the Airport bus’s old livery from 1980’s Aer Lingus livery.
Wright Eclipse Gemini-3 GS-class amphibious bus
I created the lego Wright Eclipse Gemini-3, known as Wright Streetdeck, amphibious bus on my LDD on my laptop last week ago and I add the water surface to see what the lego amphibious bus floats on the water.
I edited the bodywork from Wright Eclipse Gemini-1 and 2 what I observed them on the photos. I replaced the wheels with sphere-wheels(most sphere-wheeled vehicles found in I-Robot film) and then put the propeller on my lego bus’s bodywork. I put three WIFI disc caps on the roof to speed up the Internet for smartphone and ipad users. The doors are watertight to keep the lego bus afloat. Follow the sink of the DUKW tour bus in Liverpool in 2013, most Lego buses must have strong inflatable buoyancy.
The Brick.ie have lego 6-stud to 8-stud width buses, trains and trams.
I created the 10-stud width buses, trains and trams after I copied Hong Kong’s and USA’s lego models.
The 6-stud to 8-stud width models have no room for lego person to stand between two seated lego people and the 10-stud width models need some room for the lego people to stand or sit.
I keep the studs on the floors for action what the lego people are standing.
Lego Hong Kong buses have floors but some have straight(no standing action) and some have studs(standing action). The doors need straight floors in instead of stud floors because they need for opening and closing.
I put 1×2 tiles with one stud in middle on the seat rows that give the space to the aisle for standing action what the lego people are standing or sit.
DF450 1972 – 2013
I created the lego 1972 Leyland Atlantean PDR1A/1 DF450 ‘7Up’ tour bus on my LDD last months ago. The real DF450 was in normal service in 1972 until 1988. It was deroofed and converted to 7Up tour bus in summer 1988. It was later re-roofed and converted to Ghost Bus tour in autumn 1998. The roof belongs to the DF595 fitted to the DF450.
The DF450 was withdrawn from service last 30th December 2013 after 41 years in service.
When I was a child in 1988 and I asked my mom to take me and my brother to the 7Up tour bus but my mom said that the 7Up tour bus is very expensive for us to board it.
The 7Up bus was gone from O’Connell Street when I and my brother grew up to adults.
I never seen the 7Up tour bus for 16 years, just only 7Up normal buses in Dublin city centre. It was too late to salvage the DF378(glass roof) and DF454(rear roof) for another 7Up tour buses after the DF450 converted from 7Up to Ghost Bus tour bus. The DF360 and DF413 are the same 7Up style tour bus as the DF450 but the DF360’s upper deck side windows and small rear roof still there and DF413’s lower deck windows never panelled.
Due to lack of flat TVs in 1988, I created the lego normal TVs and put them into the 7Up tour bus, they shaped like the boxes.
Due to lack of free Internet in 1988, the real 7Up bus don’t provide the free Internet.
Due to lack of ECO LED lights in 1988, the real 7Up bus had normal lights in both deck.
DF749 with KD window
I created the lego Vanhool Atlantean AN68 bus what I don’t like the bodywork. After I observed small group of DFs with Bombardier KD’s windows on the front of the upper decks park on O’Connell Street in Dublin city centre when I was teenager. They just disappeared when I grew from teenage to adult.
