Great fleet, I know there's a lot more. What are the years of the buses in these pictures? I would've thought that was a real ariel view of a bus yard, but the tile gave it away. Good job on all of those Ted!!

These photos represent about half of my fleet. The other half is up in Michigan. I moved to Georgia in 1998 and all of the buses in Michigan are pre-1998 with the exception of one. 45 of the buses in the photos were built since late 1999 and therefore were built here in Georgia. The other 20 were brought down here from Michigan and they range in age from 1992-1999. A few of my buses have found homes with family and friends.

Looks like I will have to add one of those to my collection. I like that version much better than the Simpson's one or the Partridge. The first bus I ever rode was a '55 or '56 GMC Superior.
Ted

Jake, how did one of your buses get in a wreck?

Well, see, i somehow dropped it, and its rear axel broke, etc. So its rear wheels want to fall out off the body. (Some piece of plastic broke). So I just say some naughty person ran their car into the side of it.... (It was also a very ugly model of a try at a 1980s IHC Wayne. No detail, or rear lights!! LOL.)

~Jake~
----
Also on those 56 Chevy Superior models - they are REALLY hard to find, to me. I (At a last resort) purchased mine (2) at the annual state flea market for about $2 a bus.
(Someobne was selling theirs for 6!!!) I was also told it was becoming a VERY hot item by the dealer I bought it from..

I ordered one of these buses a few days ago from a dealer on eBay. They're pretty easy to find there but the prices (plus shipping) are a little high. Paying $2 seems to be a very good deal. I have never seen one of these at a local store although I haven't looked that much.

wondering if any of you customize your models in addition to re-lettering. here's a short video of the Sunnyside 9852 with flashing red and amber lights (to Federal flash rate standards of course), headlights, aisle lighting, motorized swinging Stop sign, engine sounds and noisy kids. i also found 1/48 scale seated children used in model railroads fit nicely. (note: video w/sound about 1.3 Mbytes)

http://home.att.net/~stan2004/schoolbus.MPG

i also re-decaled the grammar error on the rear door (of a school bus mind you!). i'm particularly interested if/how anyone has animated the front bumper crossing arm or found a model suitable for doing such.

Wow, wow, and wow again. Bus Modeler you have conquered what most of us has always wanted, or at least what I have! A small model bus with working (realistic) ambers, reds, and stop arm. When does mass production begin!?

Chris, thanks for your kind words. I donít think a manufacturer will mass-produce a model with the features you mention so itís a DIY project. The Sunnyside diecast dis-assembles easily providing access to the 8-way to install lights. The sign is on a pivot which simplifies adding a motor. The basic components (lights, motor, electronic chips) to do an amber/red 8-way flasher and swing the sign are about $20. It runs on 1 AAA battery under the seats. But assembly, wiring, fine soldering, and chassis re-work takes time. One forum poster commented he spends some 30 hours to hand-craft custom physical features of one model. Itís a similar situation but with different materials.

If you want to try, Iíll help. Maybe the 1/54 scale C2 which is similar in size to the Sunnyside? I donít have one but it appears to have a swinging sign. The key is if and how it comes apart to install lights and a mechanism to swing the sign. I donít sell anything so Iím not sure how this would work. If you donít already work with electronic components, getting them in one-sy two-sy quantities is a challenge (parts arenít from Radio Shack). But if youíre interested send an email and we can sort it out offline.

I have been collecting school bus models since 1973. I mostly collect realistic- looking bus models; where you can identify them with a chassis or body company. I would say I have more than 200.

Again, hopefully Jeff will see these posts and respond. I've used a couple of different ways to get the lettering I want. One is a bit too complicated to explain. A new way that I've recently tried is to go to the link below. This is the exact Highway Gothic B style font that Blue Bird and IC currently uses. What you can do is type in the 'sample box'the exact wording for the side of your bus. Then print the page with the samples. Then you will need to make a master copy that you can use to photocopy your final lettering onto clear full sheet adhesive backed labels. An even better product that the clear labels (which you can find at Staples or Office Max) is ReproFilm. This is about a $1 a sheet and can be found at architect/drafting supply stores or online (do a search). If you go online you may have to buy a whole box but there should be a store in your town that sells copying supplies to architects and they will sell by the sheet. To make my final photocopies with the ReproFilm I take it to Staples. A home copier will not work with ReproFilm. The ReproFill clear (#420) is pretty much invisible once it's applied to the bus.

Sorry to bring up such an old topic, but I think I may have found something of interest to those that want to add lettering to their model buses. The name of the font currently used on Bluebird and IC buses is called Highway Gothic B, which is expensive to buy and the samples aren't very sharp when you print them off. I've found a site that made a font identical to Highway Gothic called "Roadgeek", and you can download it for free. The fonts come in a package, and the one you should use is called "Roadgeek2005 Type B". Here's the link: http://www.triskele.com/fonts

Hey Jake, thanks for sharing that information! However, when it comes to computers my knowledge is pretty limited. I downloaded the fonts (I think) but how do you open the file to use them? I tried to open the fonts (type B) with my Word Processor but it would not let me. AAAARrrrrgggghhhhhh!!!!! Help! Any advice??

You have to upload them into your computer's font folder.

If thats the case, I'll email u and show u how if u need to be shown.

Not too hard. You first need to unzip the files. You open the file you just downloaded, click on "File", then "Extract All". Click "next" when the window comes up. Now you're at a screen that says "select a destination". Click on "browse". When the window comes up, double click "My Computer", then "C:" (or whatever your hard drive is), then double click "WINDOWS", and click on the "Fonts" folder. Click "OK". Then click next, and you're done!!

Thanks Jake, I make my signs for my buses using one of Fonts in the "C" that looks like a typewriter. My new signs I am applying to the buses say "ALL-STAR/DATTCO TRANSPORTATION - NEW BRITAIN (or SALEM) R10bus#" Got to redo 25 buses w/ these new signs. I have another update coming up on my website soon.

George, yes, series (or type) B. Series C was used on older Blue Birds and also on Superior in the 70's.

I think these are most of Ted's pictures on his MSN group. http://www.msnusers.com/SuperiorGMC1963/_whatsnew.msnw

The oldest I saw were a couple of buses from the late 1980's.

This is one of only two photos I have of ANY of my 70's buses.
http://www.msnusers.com/SuperiorGMC1963/shoebox.msnw?action=ShowPhoto&PhotoID=50 1978 Superior International

Unfortunately, I did not start taking photos of my buses until the mid-80's and by then many of my late 70's buses were....destroyed. Fact is, back then, I only kept buses for a few years. I just didn't have the room and the buses were not as well made as they are today. I also reused the wheels and tires. I made quite a few '77-79 Ford Conventionals and I really wish I had some photos of them. The smartest thing I ever did was start taking a photo of each bus I've made beginning in the mid-80s to present day.
I have a photo of a '79 Superior International but that is the only other 70's bus I have photographed. If anyone is interested I can post it here. It was on my site but I removed it a few months ago.

Jake - I just put ambers (Red LEDs) in one of my buses (IC Bus #1), but the wires and battery can be found in the bus with a switch on the back hatch of the bus.

I'm glad you enjoy the updates. And as far as the older buses being perfect...well, I wish that were the case. I've learned quite a bit over the years and each bus is better than the last.
It's been awhile since I've updated but I am working on some buses, quite a few as a matter of fact. I have a C2 that is about 20% completed, a Vision that is about 60% complete (I'm waiting to put it on the new chassis), and three IC CE's that are each about 40% completed. Here are a couple of pics of the IC's showing the interior and exterior walls. The walls are ready to be attached to the floor...once I get the floors done.

I hope those IC's rust like the real ones do Maybe you should put rust effect on the paintjob, make it look authentic

But now that makes me want to ask a question.. have you ever considered giving a bus an old "run down" look to the paintjob?
