Model history[edit | edit source]

The original construction was a metal cab with the rest being plastic. In 2015 it was retooled to become entirely plastic.

This model appears to be based off the Micro Bird by Blue Bird. Although the headlights and warning lights are not painted, the side marker lights are. The door is not part of the body, but part of the clear window glass. Unusually, there is an emergency exit door on the right hand side.

Card descriptions[edit | edit source]
