The Wider World:
I know what it says on the masthead but I do feel that there is room for more than just buses in this magazines. Many people in, or on the fringes of, the hobby have interests in other fields, some related, some not. Useful modelling tips and techniques can be picked up in all sorts of unlikely places. And, of course, buses do not exist in isolation they are part of a wider world that contains other road vehicles, roads, buildings, people, trees, weather and many other things - all of which can have an impact on our chosen subject. Placing a model in its context in the wider world enables 4he non-enthusiast to better appreciate what it is that you have modelled. It also adds to the enjoyment that the enthusiast, and indeed yourself, will derive from the model. Look at the 'before' and 'after' photographs in Simple Scenic Bases (page 18) to see what I mean.

The stream of new releases and product announcements continues almost unabated. I suspect that many of us will need to move our collection of 'round tuit' projects to larger premises if this goes on much longer. Speaking to one of the kit manufacturers recently he wondered how many of the kits that he had sold were ever built and how many were gathering dust in cupboards and attics. In the end, it doesn't matter if you never get around to building your latest kit purchase. You can while away many happy hours thinking about doing it! If this is your first issue of Model Buses, welcome aboard. If not, thank
you for your continued support. Enjoy this issue and make more of your hobby with Model Buses.
