Modern Bus Shelter
Hornby Skaledale Modern Bus Shelter – R8681
Review: The picture of the Skaledale Modern Bus Shelter on the box looked
fabulous, with clear windows, metal frame, back supports whilst standing at the
bus shelter, and a bulletin board. I was looking forward to seeing the actual
getting the bus shelter out of it's box to my disappointment the
picture on the box was far better in quality then the actual bus
shelter I was holding in my hands.
shelter looks extremely plastic, poorly constructed and the
paint work looked poorly completed, to the extent the actual
metal frame that the bus shelter was made out of was showing
through. The gap at the top varied in size at each end, with one
large gap and one small gap. Some of the bus shelter doesn't
look formed correctly, especially as I thought it was made out
of plastic until I saw the metal showing, and with parts of the
shelter having broken pieces. The shelter doesn't look level
when held and didn't stand level when placed on a level surface.
The white paint used to demonstrate where the bus timetable
would be placed was poorly completed and not straight.
a one off badly produced bus shelter? I shall be asking hornby
when it's returned to them.
