Northcord Model Company is pleased to announce the release of UKBUS6509, the third release of the long awaited 10.3 metre 2-door casting of this distinctive, modern, double-decker in the United Kingdom.
The third livery to be carried on the brand-new Alexander Dennis Enviro400H MMC model, is Abellio London with standard London red livery.
UKBUS6509 represents fleet number 2616 (SN18 KLJ) that has 10.3 metre, dual-door bodywork and was new to Abellio London in 2018. 2616 has a Euro6 hybrid driveline and the newly released model demonstrates the special cooling apertures that are appropriate to this hybrid bus. The model carries the roof fleet number ABL2616.
This bus is based at Abellio London’s Walworth Depot where it operates on busy route 196 which runs between Elephant & Castle and Newington Causeway.
The Alexander Dennis Enviro400H MMC UKBUS6509 is a one-piece casting whose clean lines accentuate the square-cornered, patented quick-release windows of the real bus and the livery application on which all logos and lettering are clearly legible. Another main feature on the UKBUS6509 model is its dual individual tree protectors at the front. The front dome on the model is significant, with curved windscreens on both upper deck and lower deck.
Northcord Model Company is also creating new design standards within the interior of both saloons. These features, inside the compartments, will represent the real, outstanding layout of the Enviro400H MMC, such as the additional ventilation equipment on the upper deck ceiling, and the extensive portrayal of handrails on upper deck and lower deck, etc.
The brand new Enviro400H MMC bus models will be distributed by John Ayrey Die-Casts Limited (UK), Porte Publishing Company (Japan), 80M Bus Model Shop and Concorde Hobby Shop (HK) respectively. The UKBUS6509 model is limited to 1200 pieces worldwide.

"Following the significant success in launching the brand new casting of the Alexander Dennis Enviro400 MMC model in the livery of Go-Ahead London, National Express West Midlands, Stagecoach London & Stagecoach in Oxfordshire, First Bristol, Reading Buses and Bluestar, Northcord Model Company is releasing the tenth and eleventh versions - UK6508A and UK6508B - in the livery of Platinum X1 of National Express West Midlands.
UK6508A / 6508B represent fleet number 6843 (SN66 WFM) that has 10.9 metre, single door bodywork and was new to National Express West Midlands in 2017. 6843 carries a full and colourfully branded livery for Platinum X1. The special, comprehensive livery and branding are 100% reproduced onto the UK6508A and 6508B models.
The stand-out features of the branding are : “Birmingham I NEC & Airport I Coventry”, “up to every 20 minutes” frequency, and the prominent route number “X1” along with the key locations served that are repeated on each side (“Fast via Coventry Road) and on the front, upper windscreen and the rear (Fast between Sheldon, Yardley, Birmingham City Centre”). Fares details are carried in the first nearside window. On the nearside panels and engine access door, wording refers to the extra legroom available on board in addition to the “comfier seats” whilst the offside advertises the “greener emissions, free Wi-Fi, and next stop announcements”.
The model also correctly portrays the name “Connie” that is carried on the front, below the windscreen on the nearside, and on the rear, at the top of the engine cover on the offside, of the bus 6843.
Both UK6508A and 6508B operate on route X1. UK6508A is showing the destination Coventry, whilst UK6508B shows Birmingham.
The Alexander Dennis Enviro400 MMC UK6508A / 6508B is a one-piece casting whose clean lines accentuate the square, gasket-mounted windows and the livery application on which all logos and lettering are clearly legible. Another main feature on the UK6508A / 6508B models is the provision of a single tree protector at the front. The front dome on the model is significant, with curved windscreens on both upper deck and lower deck.
Northcord Model Company is also creating new design standards within the interior of both saloons. These features, inside the compartments, will represent the real, outstanding layout of the Enviro400 MMC, such as the extensive portrayal of handrails on upper deck and lower deck, etc.
The UK6508A and 6508B models are each limited to 600 pieces worldwide respectively"
