Default 1:24 - 1958 Routemaster Bus RMC1453

Talking about Sunstar, here's the 1:24 - 1958 Routemaster Bus RMC1453 from Sunstar. The 715 from Greenline served the Hertford Route in 1958. The coach is nicely detailed and a limited edition from Sunstar. At 1:24, its pretty huge and weights heavy. The last pic is along-side the 1:18 - 1960 Chrysler 300F.

Cool Bus... Excellent detailing. Bought this in India or overseas?
I liked the idea about the box to dump used tickets.

Thanks f1fan. I bought it overseas but had it waited out for months until it got picked for hand delivery. Didn't want to risk shipping on this one.

BTW any idea on whether this would be available in Dubai and if YES then which place?
Have a cousin who is coming in Dec. Can ask him to bring it with him.
BTW if you don't mind, what is the cost?

Dude If you have some one in States, ship to his address. It is cheaper in States. Toy wondres is one site having the model for USD 185. It might be chepar also if you search a little more. In UK is a whole lot costlier @ 190 GBP.

Thanks Manish. Your Sunstar Morris is awesome and at 1:12 scale its BIG!. Hope you lay hands on the Sunstar Bus soon.

@f1fan: I bought the bus early this year in the US, cost me ~US$145 at that time. It was available on Amazon back then. Sunstar makes about 4 or 5 different versions of the buses from that era all in 1:24 scale with price range from $130 -$200.

yes its big and with that detailing it is awesome, the courier has already reached to my siters home . The bus I am trying out in China, should be a cheaper alternative.

Well yes some times you really get lucky. I got my 1:18 Merc 300 SLR (the 722 one) for a discount of 60% from landmark Chennai.

Not seen the Routemaster in DXB. I've been looking for one myself.
