Some very nice models there BK, is the Gold coach covered in gold leaf, it certainly looks like it is, and is the RAF truck a Rolls Royce, I know quite q few military vehicles from WW1 were Rolls, I like the display cases too

I'll check out the motor Rog. I made the cabinets from two picture frames I rescued from a school loft. Made the sides to fit the frames then put a back on. This was then attached to the picture frames with a couple of hinges. A ready made door with original glass. One of them I lined with foil, to try and reflect the image.  B.

Dead easy to make Rog., whatever size of picture frame you have to hand, that is the size you make. Obviously if you only have a small picture frame, you're not going to get many exhibits inside.  B.

(The shelves are made just like any cupboard shelf. Made mine with straps of 3 ply.)

Very interesting to hear it is a Crossley they made military vehicles from 1914 to 1945 and  have a comprehensive website well worth visiting, also see they made buses the DD 42 so a bit more investigating to do there

  There is a photograph in existence of Butler Bros KNN 875. However, it has been rebodied, no longer carrying Henry Streets craft work. Interesting if @Oztalgian can remember it. The photograph also shows a OB sticking its nose out from behind it.

 

@Dark Angel has asked me to post this photo of the coach mentioned a few days ago. I'm sure he'll be along soon to explain it all.

  Thanks for posting photograph @Cliff Ton. It’s one @Oztalgianwanted to see. Two buses operated by Butler Bros of Kirkby in Ashfield. The main focus is of the Crossley originally fitted with a Henry Street body, however, that has been replaced. There is a Bedford OB to the rear which is the bus @Oztalgianis interested in.

I can't remember Butler Brothers having buses like KNN 875. Certainly remember travelling on their OB buses. Livery was light and dark blue. Trying to work out where that photo was taken.
