I'm new to model railways, and wholly inept with modelling skills. So I need the equivalent of an architect to help me avoid mistakes and to optimise the plan, and I need a builder to help me realise that plan.

Hi Simon and welcome to MRF,

Nice to here that you have an interest in old commercial vehicles, there are several of us here who have a "thing" about buses.

I think the first thing you need to establish is how much room you have and what you want to put in it. You then need to consider scale and period you wish to model.

To be honest basebord construction need not be daunting as long as you have basic woodworking skills and tools.

But any questions fire away, I feel sure that someone will soon be along with the answer.

Enjoy the hobby.
