Very easy, and all the parts are snap-fit as opposed to glued.

 Most of the CMW bus can be taken apart easy:  Pull the front and rear bumper out (might have to use corner of a single edge razor as a lever to unseat the bumpers.  Then the underbody/seats come out easy, but I could not take the clear window inserts out - they were not glued but really jammed in tight. I ended up breaking pieces of the clear inserts.  THis is in the 1st run of these models - maybe they redesigned the subsequent runs.

Got my power chassis today.  This is really cool.  Hope this is a successful product line for TomyTec.

Thanks!  Since the review is a separate thread which will get lost in the forum, I figured that I might as well point a link to it here.

Has anyone had issues with the new chassis tracking accurately?  I'm having problems on some curves and also on the switchable basic intersection track.  My other  Japanese style bus has no issues and works perfectly.  I love the GMC bus, but wish it would track accurately. Maybe I got a dud?

Thanks,
Ajay
