CVA-bus
This model is my latest, of course. I began to do it just when I built half of Citroen Ultra model so you can say I did both of them at the same time. Anyways I finished it this week. It is pretty big, long and heavy but it has all the major features of a bus. CVA-bus stands for custom vintage american bus. So there it is. I did it according to the real bus but with some slight changes and some of my personal touch and there you have it. It's got no fancy mechanisms. The only real mechanism is the steering which again works from the outside as well as from the inside of the bus. Another important feature are the windows. Custom made from a transparent plastic sheet again. Hey, what can I do, I don't own so many Lego windows, so here I am back again. Enjoy it if you can ;))
About this creation

Main view


front and the back


some fancy views.


O.K. the one on the top. A view from the drivers window, below left a bit of a front, next to it a bit of a side with a bus door and below the passenger windows.


everything opened. So there we have the hood with an engine, luggage compartments on both sides, bus doors, back doors and the roof has that little box that is usually used for accessing the roof but here it has another purpose. You open the hatch and slide in the stick with a steering wheel and you can steer the front wheels. Of course the steering wheel in the cockpit turns as well ;)).


Here is the bus from below, but just a part of it. To be precise just the part with the steering mechanism. Below are the pictures of the open hood and the engine.


The view from the back doors. You can see the big steering stick and below pictures show how the main doors open.


Some detailed views of the cockpit with the seats and the dashboard.

I great looking bus, not to many fancy features but you still have a lot of moving parts. I love the look of this, the paint job is nice too. I hope mine will look as good one I get around to building a 10 wide bus, though it will be yellow with school across the side! Great job!

Hey thanx for the comment but when I see it now I think of many things I could've done to improve it. By the way the windows are not LEGO but in LEGO community as far as I know if you make something on your own and design it to fit LEGO -it's O.K. That's what i do with the windshield if I can't find a proper one made by LEGO. These had holes in them so the studs can fit through and hold them. Anyways this bus is nothing because what I am really proud is my other bus - the gray and blue articulated one on my MOC profile. Thanx for the comment :))

Wow, I really like the calssic shape of this bus it's beautiful. I love all the little details you added here. I might be wrong but it looks like you cheated with the window a bit (is it transparent plastic sheeting or are my eyes deceiving me)? That aside a brilliant creation. Thanks for your comment on my transporter. It is as accurate to the real thing as I think it possible. You picked out the one (four) things i'm not happy with. The wheel arches. they need some work, but this will be done before I display them at a show in the summer. Keep up the great work!

This is an excellent bus. Looks the part, fantastic detail, great steering mechanism and simple but clever door design. Looks huge as well! The plastic sheets for windows is a good idea too. You're giving me ideas to make a large bus of my own. I've got a few on here, all 8 stud.

Quoting Henrik Hoexbroe No fancy functions, you say??? -But everything opens, the entrance door folds correctly. The steering is duplicated... And above all; SIZE matters! ;-)
hahahaha yes I guess you are right. As for double steering.. all my big models have it so it's a standard issue with me ;)) Thanx for the comment
