Big Pink RM

Code 3 Big Pink Routemaster RM583 tour bus

This EFE code 3 model is of Big Pink Sightseeing Routemaster RM583, which runs tours in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

A number of Routemasters are operated with $1 of each fare being donated to the Canadian Breast Cancer charity.

The offside entrance conversions were completed in Britain before the buses were exported.

The most difficult part of creating this model was matching the pink paint used. I eventually found a matchpot of emulsion paint in B&Q that was the perfect colour, although not ideal for working with a scale model.

As always, the decals are homemade, and the model is finished with several coats of Johnsons Klear floor polish.

The real bus in Stanley Park, Vancouver.
