The SDRM started off as a series of random designs because I was bored summer 2016. Since then I've been redesigning the bus with various tweaks, and etc. Lets see some pictures then.


Phase 1

As you can see, there are many issues with the bus, of which you can probably work out yourself. It's relatively unorganised, and not that official looking, just a scrap in a note book for now. But after thinking about it for a while, I move on to...


Phase 2

The project really starts to get some headway. As well as a 3D drawing, the design begins to incorporate a more realistic profile, but a very boxy boring look at the same time. It isn't distinctive, has no unique features, nor would it be remembered as a London Icon by tourists and Londoners alike. This was around the end of summer 2016.

Phase 3

Now we start to see a uniqueness in the bus. It loses the boxy profile, and incorporates more features for Londoners to enjoy. Wide windows, unique side skylights, saving money in brighter hours, and a distinctive profile. It also comes with a new drawing, far superior to the previous version seen in Phase 2 in my opinion.

Phase 4?

Well that all depends on the feedback I'll hopefully get here. If you like it, tell me why, hate it, tell me why. I await your comments. :)

I think you should have a go at trying to make it in blender. :)

Maybe if Rhys gets a chance he could lend you some elements of the NRM or SRM

I somehow don't think its reasonable for you to be suggesting Rhys give him parts of his models. That's for Rhys to decide...plus that would get a bit complicated, giving him a payware model to create a freeware variant...

I don't mean it like that but I mean Rhys but he may be able to give some advice but I understand he is busy with the addon atm

I might have a little go and see what I can do with the pictures in blender :tongueout:
Go ahead. Keep in mind however,
  • I'm always changing the designs
  • The 3 door edition would need a custom chassis, while the 2 door can probably just go on a B8RLE
  • The drawings aren't to scale
  • The interior would be quite different
  • I haven't drawn up what the interior would look like

That does look interesting, id be happy to help, what chassis you basing it on, the current one or the SRM chassis?
If you're ace at Blender then great! But i'll help where possible - PM me with any assistance you may need; no credit needed from me at all

The SRM chassis, is the B5LH. The same chassis that the Gemini2 & 3 come upon. I believe this is a two floor bus chassis, and so would not work on a single floor SDRM.

I read somewhere that they adapted or used parts of the SRM or B5LH chassis to create the Wright Streetair.

From seeing the Streetair briefly passing the road next to me :P I can 60% be sure, that I doubt it is directly from the SRM. It is basically a jumped up Eclipse...
