All wheels fitted. These make the chassis even heavier than ever.

Chassis completed for now with drive shafts just temp fitted in place! This is begining to get really heavy and well detailed! As I've said before! Its a shame all this will be hidden. It would be nice if anyone could afford it to build up a separate chassis and engine! It would be great sitting next to the fully built bus!

Just a couple of quick pics of all the bits for the chassis temp put together! Looking massive and incredibly heavy for a 1/12th scale kit!

Chassis with front wing and rear entrance floor plus stairs! This measures 26 inches or 66 cm! Its huge! To be honest I would have loved to build this model but I couldnt afford another part work at the moment! Im building this one for a friend who's disabled so he cant build it! If the rest of the build is as good as the chassis this is going to be a really huge but well detailed kit!

Came across this line drawing of a Routemaster Chassis! Might be of help to anyone building the Hachette model!

Are you a member of the Build The Routemaster page on Facebook? I’m sure they would love to see that.

No I'm not! I don't go on facebook! No disrespect to anyone on there but I find its just full of useless gossip and people having a go at each other! That's only my opinion! I prefer a nice quiet and well behaved forum like this one! However if you want to use any of my thoughts or pics from here and put them on facebook feel free! I've got no objection.

Thanks R2D2. I might just post that one of the chassis, giving you credit for finding it of course. I’m sure many will find it useful.
