412: Optare Solo Classic
Padbus 412 Optare Solo Classic
412 (OF54 MAM) Optare Solo Classic B31F
Padbus likes the practical layout of the Optare Solo but is not quite so sure about the styling. The need for a distinctive bus of old fashioned appearance for a tourist service led to this rebuild. The resultant small, rear engined, half-cab single decker is reminiscent of the pre-war London Transport CR class buses and the bonnet shape reflects this. This 2004 bus was also the prototype for the current metallic green livery.
Modified Corgi OOC diecast.
