This wee model bus is destined for the Toyshop display in the Riverside Museum’s re-created street. The model is in good condition with the exception of the varnish which has aged and yellowed. The degraded varnish was carefully removed using solvents to allow the original colours to shine through. The slide show shows the model before treatment, part way through treatment and the model finished and ready for transport to Riverside.
