Dear friends,

I want to announce that we have reached to a Licensing Agreement with Greyhound Bus Lines.

We will do a new series of metal 1/43 buses from General Motors.

The first model will be the famous GM "Buffalo" body, which was not only used by Greyhound, but also by many bus companies nationwide and worldwide.

We started with the prototypes many months ago, but not that we have the Greyhound Licensing Agreement signed , I think is the right moment to share with you.

Great news!

Scale 1/43 or 1/50 (as written on FB: "We are developing an exciting new Series of Diecast GREYHOUND buses for the discerning collector in 1/50 scale")?

Can you imagine what the white metal price of a 1:43 bus would be?

Wills Finecast (aka Finecast) did, or does, do white metal 24th scale models of MGTDs and others,  so white metal has been used in items bigger than 43rd scale cars.  Usually available in kits.

@michel-lemieux, the bus is Diecast, not white metal. The price is intended to be (not confirmed yet) around $ 100. Best regards.
