LBRT Model Transfers New Online Store
Nigel Mitchell has contacted with details of a new online store he has just opened to sell his remaining stock of 1/76th scale waterslide model bus transfers. The LBRT range is strongly focused on vehicles & routes operated London Transport,London Country & their successors, but there is also a large selection of bus adverts that would also sort many non London vehicles.

Nigel is also selling a selection of EFE, Britbus & Corgi models which were originally purchased to be used as base items for his former code 3 bespoke models.

The site which has over 2,000 products can be found at and is linked to Paypal for secure online payments.

Nigel has asked me to point out that he has now retired and no longer produces any bus models, once the current limited stock of transfers has sold out, no further batches will be produced.
