New tooling in the Oxford Commercials series adds a new double decker the 1:76 scale Leyland Titan PD2/12, which we are delighted to launch in the popular Maidstone & District Motor Services Ltd livery. The forward control Leyland Titan PD2 featured a front mounted engine designed to carry double-decker bus bodywork. Their production dated from 1927-1942 and resumed after World War II from 1945-1969. Because of their size, the PD2s were originally classed as the non London 26 footer version, considered unsuitable for use in the capital. However, in 1950 some revisions to the construction and use regulations meant that the 8 foot wide vehicles no longer required special permission to operate in central London and the maximum length for double deckers was increased to 27 feet. As a result, Leyland raised a new set of variant codes for the Titans, namely from PD2/10 to PD2/13, these having a wheelbase of 16' 5. The standard Leyland body was also revised. Within this range of new codes was the PD2/12 which was 8' wide with vacuum brakes. The chassis and bodywork were both by Leyland. Our model, in the Green and Cream colour scheme of Maidstone & District with silver grey masked roof and registered NKT 875, is travelling on route 119 to Tunbridge Wells via Uckfield, Maresfield and Crowborough. The nearside advertising panel is promoting Fremlin's Elephant Beers, while the offside is suggesting you Relax by Bus Car free and Carefree. The eyebrows on either side of the front destination board are advertising Duncans Prams Tunbridge Wells on the offside front and further promoting them as England's Largest Baby Store on the nearside, both slogans printed in yellow lettering out of black. The radiator grille is masked green with the Leyland marque in silver above. The wheel inserts and mudguards are also the same dark green. The bus interior is moulded green with black platform floor. Added detail sees the window openers and the rear bumpers finished in silver finish.
