EFE 1/76 AEC RT - LT
EFE's old faithful RT was its first ever bus. when introduced, it was such a detailed model that it was such a detailed model that it virtually created the hobby of 1/76th scale bus collecting on its own.
But even something that set new standards in 1989 could be seen as tired by 1999, and the model was needing a new lease of life. And it has got one.
It has new under-chassis 'running boards'; side traffic indicators tween decks; a new radiator; tided up casting around the driver's area.
These changes have really bought a new lease of life to the casting. The radiator makes it look most authentic with its masterful grille effect and tiny AEC/LT badge.
This model is of an unusual variant it features an off-side information panel (Routh 29) and roof mounted route code box as well. This combination was short-lived, but it did happen.
