Model Transport

I knew that a lot of hobbyists do model cars, trains and planes. I myself have spent a good many hours ogling at train model stores and flatening my nose on the windows. But recently I came to find out that there is a dedicated population of enthusiasts who even do this Pinoy transport icon. And they even get the details down to the bald tyres next to the driver's door!


For viewers, who have the interest and the time:

It never occured to me that there would be a following for models for the like of this, but there is a battered charm about them

FABULOUS FABULOUS slideshow of the model, Ayush. I assume you made that? I LOVE doing stuff like that but never would have thought of doing a Jeepney bus. Thanks for including the link!

The other bald tire on the Jeepney suggests that the owner should spend more on safety maintenance and less on the other stuff smile They are great picture objects.
Very nice!
Good one!!
Great picture! Ayush. Thanks for the link, and it is something i would love to do! As a kid I use to spend time with my Dad in the garage and sitting on the hood of the car and handling over the tools that my Dad needed.
