HO New Look Bus



Doc Shron, Dan and Dan go back to the future in this ridiculous and cheap Rapido product launch video.

Will the bus model be painted in my town or city’s paint scheme?

We are finalizing the paint schemes for the first run of New Look buses. We can only do a small number of liveries at a time, and we plan to do several more production runs in the future.

Please keep in mind that our minimum production run is 300 buses. We’ve had a lot of requests for buses painted in the transit agency liveries of smaller cities and towns. Some have been quite obscure. If your town only has seven model railroaders and three model vehicle collectors and they all live on your street, we most likely will not be able to paint our bus model in your town’s transit agency colours.

We do plan to produce several common colour combinations without any lettering as well as an undecorated (aluminum) model. If you want to model a smaller transit agency, you will be able to purchase an unlettered or undecorated bus and add your own lettering.

Transit agency special runs

We are always open to doing custom runs for transit agencies for gift shop sales, retirement gifts, etc. If you represent a transit agency and you would like an exclusive run of New Look bus models please do not hesitate to get in touch.
