SMN report:
We love paper models, so when we chanced on the neat and simple Paper Bus Connection site, we thought you would like a look too.

Paper Bus Connection is an online repository for dozens of beautifully crafted multi-view drawings of buses around the world, complete with bilingual instructions and simple tabs to glue the parts together.

Choose a scale
Scale can be anything you like, depending on the size you choose to print at, but we reckon that PBC’s drawings would best fit 1:87 or 1:76 scale - and would not look out of place next to a collection of diecast buses.

Unusual choices
The variety of subjects is staggering, even extending to a bus for the fashionista set - a special Louis Vuitton colour scheme applied to a Leyland Victory II. It’s not quite our thing perhaps, but it’s certainly different.

World buses
Buses from PBC fall into three main groups: Hong Kong, China, and the US, with a couple each for Canada and the UK. And best of all, all bus plans are yours to download for free - good on you Paper Bus Connection!
