The forthcoming release will be the first Norfolk Green bus model on the market and although the last Mercedes minibuses left the Norfolk Green fleet several years ago they were once a common sight forming the backbone of the fleet.

It is great to see a Norfolk Green bus finally reproduced in model form, hopefully it will be the first of many more to come, it would be good to see a more modern vehicle from the current fleet released in the future too!

The model can be pre-ordered from most good model bus stockists now, with the exact release date to be confirmed.
