I have included several photos of 1 of the demonstrators that lives at Workington, WHH 556S, with the local trust. Hopefully these might help somewhat. She has a DAF engine. Also included some of fellow CHH 210T it lives with. There is many nationals with the trust up here.

Thank you so very much for all of these pictures, they're all beautifully lovely!! That one pic of WHH 556S beside a Stagecoach Gold bus as well! 😍
Sidenote: At first, when I saw the dashboard picture, I thought "that speed dial is unusually modern-looking..." and then I noticed it's a smartphone, hehe 😂
(Is the actual speed dial broken?)

Again, thanks a bunch! I'll be sure to include you in the credits section of the description as well, as well as on a classic-styled credits-livery, like V3D did with the Patreon's Bus livery for his 8.9m Enviro200 MMC! :)

That's right, folks, I'm working on a Leyland National Mk1!
After a long wait, Leyland Development Team (LDT) strikes its magic wand on that beautifully ancient and overgrown-with-moss stone of WIP threads, bringing some fresh new light into the scene!

FAQ:
• Will you do the Mk2 version of the Leyland National as well as Mk1?
Probably yes, but it will take quite a while until I get the Mk1 National finished (absolutely no idea when that'll be), so don't expect anything on that in the near future.
• Do you have a rough estimate on when the release will be?
As I already said above, I have no idea on when the bus will be ready for release.
• Can I be an alpha or beta tester?
I don't know yet. I'm not saying "No" right away, but I'm not saying "Yes" either. Maybe, maybe not.
Alpha and Beta testers will be chosen at a later date, when it's even applicable to talk about it.
• Will there also be variants with the smaller roof-mounted heating pod and also ones without one entirely?
I do plan on doing the different variants of the roof pod as a setvar, so yes.
I'm not entirely sure though, we'll see. Let's just say: If I can figure out how to do it, yes. :)
• Some variants of the National had fog lights... do you plan on doing those as a setvar as well?
Yes, I do! :D
• Will the bus come with a cab and interior?
Well, of course! What did you think?! 😄
• Once the "Streets of LOTUS" module for LOTUS-Simulator releases, will you do a version for that as well?
Okay so I don't have LOTUS-Simulator yet, but once I do, once I have the module, and once I get some scripting and coding experience with that, and I understand it: Yes. :)

In conclusion:
I am extremely eager to share more news with you as I improve the model of this bus more and more, and I will do my best to give you updates as regular as possible, and I hope that you are as excited for this bus as much as I am.

Thanks very much! I have many more pics of many nationals ive took over the years i just didnt want to spam a post with them all haha. Should you need anymore particular reference pics just send me a message as i can probably dig some photos out or even call to the local trust down the road from me. (Am a volunteer member of the trust)

In regards to the smartphone, that was used by the drivers when attending rallies as a satnav by google maps as quite often been situated in West Cumbria a round trip often was a few hundred miles which the nationals travelled with ease & still carry on afterwards!

I have 2 videos, 1 of 556 & 210 which were taken on private runs.
