    The JG53 bus should be JG54, if going with the Grunherz on the door, which were '54's symbol, JG53 were the Pik As or Ace of Spades. Great buses, love the hippie one! Hope to see one with the windows in the roof....great stuff! :thumbright:

    Thanks! :D

    There will be roof window versions in time, and t-shirts etc... just trying to get the details sorted out, like wheel-arches, gate latches, indicators, air vents etc... and I started off thinking this would be an easy project! :rolleyes:
