Our bus collectors have already been treated to this model in 1:76 scale and we are pleased to introduce the exact same National Eastern Counties livery on our British N scale (1:148 - 6.3cm) Bristol MW6G too. In the signature white, red and blue National Bus Company livery, our single decker is travelling to Ely as the 499 registered 3804 PW. The interior is finished in beige with red seating and a white steering wheel. Additional detail sees the Bristol name featuring diagonally across the chrome plated radiator and the Eastern Counties Omnibus Company contact details printed in silver behind the nearside front wheel. You will notice the model is based on the coach rather than the bus version of the Bristol MW (Medium Weight) chassis, which featured a different radiator grille, wide two piece windscreen and twin headlight clusters.
The Bristol MW was built by Bristol Commercial Vehicles at their Brislington works between 1956 and 1965 and constructed to the then maximum size limit of 30 ft in length and 8 ft wide. The single passenger door was placed in front of the front axle, which enabled the vehicle’s use as a one-man operation – quite novel in those early days. All the chassis were fitted with either a 5-cylinder or 6-cylinder Gardner engine, this designated MW5G or – in the case of our model – MW6G.
