Cool!  It's been since 1963 that I came back from Korea.  Stopped in Japan going both directions, but never saw a school bus.  Didn't know they had some that looked so much like yours.

That is some time ago!
There is also a 1:32 scale kit of that type of a bus (I have the kit).  I imagine that the bus is from the '50s or '60s, and it does look quite similar to American buses.

Photo is correct. The School Bus is a Japanese prototype - they drive on the left side of the road.  Friend of mine also has that bus on his layout.

BTW, Nate's Anime girls are quite realistic (and very nice).  :)

But that school bus is driving on the right, letting kids off on to oncoming traffic.  It should be placed on the left lane.   :trollface:

That would be Burma back then.  :)

Yet 50 years later the busses still let people out into traffic lol

Cute Mike, very cute. Now, the next question is how anatomically-correct the layout girl figure is modeled?  ;)

DKS: don't blame me - Nate was the one who introduced this very cute mannequin into this thread.

Yup...Haru Hitomi IS "very cute" and she doesn't always wear a big sweatshirt...

Photo (1) - Haru Hitomi greets us while in a festive mood holding an HO scale UP F7 while relaxing in her skimpy red mini...



Photo (2) - Some scale curvatures on Haru's "layout"....


Photo (3) - Yup Peter...Haru Hitomi is anatomically correct...here's the only photo I can share.  I'm sure the rivet counters among us will appreciate it! :D


Just to keep this as "photography"...It was longer ago than I thought as the camera I used was my first DSLR...my old Nikon D40, which had great color, but low resolution.

I also used Photoshop's cloning tool to get rid of the seams between body parts...which adds greatly to the prototypical look, don'tcha think??

Cheerio!

Here's a Clerihew about Ed. K.

Ed Kapucinski
Every night, he plants a new tree.
But mention his law
and you've pulled your last straw!

Alternate version:
Ed Kapucinski
Every night, he plants a new tree.
He asks excitedly "Did you say Ménage à Trois?"
No, I said "Ed's Law."

And here I thought that 'Star Blazers' was perhaps some figment of my dreams that nobody else remembered.
