MODEL REVIEW

By Terry Stapley:

East Yorkshire Motor Services Limited Dennis Trident Alexander ALX400 Registration Number 46 EYB Fleet Number 661 on route 47 to Willerby.

This is another superb model from Creative Master Northcord Limited, and the second single door version. Comparing the model with a photograph of the prototype, the livery and graphics are excellent right down to the logos (wheelchair, mother & child, buggy etc) in the windscreen. One comment I have regarding the tampo printing is that K.W. has been printed instead of U.W. for the unladen weight, but this is small enough not to be noticeable. The front destination screen is behind glass, whereas the side destination number is tampo printed and the rear one is painted over. As is usual for CMNL castings the engine cover opens to reveal a very detailed engine and on the inside there are no hideous poles. Also on the inside, the ceilings have the interior strip lights picked out and the front grab rail in the upper deck in the correct orange colour. All in all, an excellent model that will grace the shelves of any display cabinet.
