New Bus for Birthday!

Today was my 33rd birthday and my sweet charm must be rubbing off on my new bride (we got married last month too). She bought me a bus! It's a little smaller than I wanted but I'm not going to complain. Sorry, I haven't figured out how to do the inside pics yet! Enjoy.



Perhaps, PapaBear, you might break your bus purchase to your wife similarly?

I'm just barely over the suggested age!!!

Ben.

Re: New Bus for Birthday!

Thanks for the birthday wishes...

My roof raise will dwarf Elliot's Millicent roof raise! It'll be a little top heavy, too I'm afraid.

That's too cute!

Just think... you can use it to test out all your paint scheme ideas. Paint 'er up, set 'er on the desk & see if it annoys you on a small scale. If it does, no problem. Just repaint, rinse & repeat!

Re: New Bus for Birthday!

Now that's true love.

My husband did a similar thing with me one year for Christmas. I harassed him all year about wanting a Harley Davidson. So guess what was in my stocking on Christmas morning? A little miniature sized Harley ---- just for me!


I like TygerCub's suggestion of using as a paint model.

Thanks Hauler, I too am the owner of a Bus the scale of yours. It's on the bear dens key ring. I'm going to bite the bullet next week. Congrats on birthday and new marriage.
