New tooling introduces the well-known and popular Plaxton Panorama 1 into the 1:76 Oxford range in an equally sought after livery, as it was run by Southdown Motor Services. Our model is based on the body style from 1963-64, which in real life was 36 ft long.
Plaxton is an English bus and coach vehicle body builder based in Scarborough, where it was originally founded in 1907 by Frederick William Plaxton. It became a subsidiary of Alexander Dennis, another famous name in the industry, in May 2007.
The Panorama concept was originally launched in 1958 at the Commercial Motor Show. It was also entered into the British and Nice coach rallies the same year, winning top awards at both events. Its modern lines and design cemented its reputation as a trendsetter, becoming a strong influence on the development of British coach styling for years to come.
Our model, registered 176 DCD, is decorated in the familiar two tone green of Southdown with their signature gold and black lettering and silver coachlines. The replica roof lights have a masked black surround while the windows and windscreen are masked in silver. The interior seating is pale green, the dashboard is moulded in tan and the floor is moulded yellow-grey. The destination board above the front radiator grille shows the coach as heading in style for Brighton!
