There is little news to report as things are fairly quiet on the 1/76th scale front. Just three releases (four models) were issued during August. There are currently twenty-five models that have been announced but not yet released, all of these being from Model 1. The oldest of these are the three HZM Bus MAN A95, which were first  announced last September.

 

   
The above news was posted 10 years ago today. Ten years on, Long Win Bus today registered five MCV EvoSeti bodied Volvo B8L which saw the use of the letters 'XN' - does anyone know what will happen once this registration system expires?
