Model Scene 5502 Leyland Olympian Double Decker Bus London Metro 1:76 Scale Kit

The Leyland Olympian entered service with the National Bus Company (N.B.C.) in 1981, as a replacement for the Bristol VRT. Shortly after this, Olympians entered service with many provincial operators. London Transport ordered its' first batch in 1984.

Initial batches of the Olympian featured a Leyland chassis, powered by a Gardner 6 LXB engine with an Eastern Carriage Works (E.C.W.) body. Later batches used a Leyland built body and those produced more recently had an Optare built body. Outwardly these three bodies are basically identical and this kit is based on this type of Olympian.

They were exported to Greece, Hong Kong, the USA, Canada and Singapore. Kit contains pre-coloured parts and transfers; requires glue and detail painting to complete.
