5635 back from Zerega...newly decaled


Blitz

Recommended Posts

now that i've seen it up close i gotta say...its F***ing ugly. they are really cheaping out on the paint now a days. they didn't even paint the axle hubs. I guess they are not using blue paint on any of the 5600, 5700, or 5800's

I was on the BxM7 Monday and I saw a New Flyer Artic with a whiteface at the 126th St depot but I couldn't make out what number bus it was and now I see this. I'm not feeling this. Why don't they make the buses look like 5693? I don't get the (MTA) at all. Thanks for sharing that and helping me see what bus I saw! lol

I'm actually a fan of 6687's scheme compared to the uniform O7-decal pattern, but it's a pricer version from what I understand.

 

I am also a fan of 6687's look, Kinda sucks that the other depots wont be following suit with that one. 6687 > the rest of the looks.

If you don't mind me answering, this is Trevor (Vintage Soul)'s shot of 6687. Big difference is a stripe on the front and stripes on the doors. Very good looking bus if you ask me, it's basically the late NG scheme on an OG.

They really half-assed the job on 5635

 

very much so. in the shot of 5693 on ttmg, it actually looks descent. but 5635 just make the whole decal scheme look really bad. the stripe is too short and is not wide enough. it looks like they made the black decal stripe wider on 5635 than they did on 5693...terrible

They painted that bus like a low floor.
