76PAN008 A TIMPSONS & SONS LTD
Based on Plaxton’s international award-winning body style from 1963-64, our model of the Plaxton Panorama continues Oxford’s geographical spread of coach releases to date with a livery from Kent. Alexander Timpson bought his first ‘charabanc’ in 1912 and from his headquarters in Rushey Green, Catford, ran day trips along the south coast for eager trippers. The company favoured AEC vehicles which formed the backbone of their fleet and you can see the AEC badge above the radiator on our 1:76 scale replica.
Our coach is heading for Folkestone and Hythe, registered 552 GXX. Its distinctive maroon and cream colour scheme is complemented by a tan interior, while the panoramic windows are edged with silver masking. The company name is printed in maroon with a silver shadow across the back of the coach and again in maroon out of yellow above the front wheel arches. No doubt the real-life 36 ft long coach was packed with passengers looking forward to a great day out!
