Re: looking for vehicles
Arrowhead Scale Models used to make a bus, but now I don't see it in
his store. It's possible that he might have run out, and may be in
the process of making more. He does have other vehicles for the
40's/50's and 80's that you might like. The only store that I know
for him right off is on the ole auction site.
You might try emailing him to see if he has any that he's working on.

- Do we have any Z Model Detectives here ?? Last year I ran unto a
school bus and a couple of other models that I bought out of a gum-ball
machine. Got the owner to open it and sell me what I wanted. I was
never able to find anything more about the models. The box is written
in a foreign script which I can not read, but it may be distributed out
of the west coast. The only English script is "49" and a photo and an
address [The last time I checked I could learn almost nothing as it also
is written in a foreign script] www.yujin-net.com The Universal
Product Code printed on the box is 4 904790 91968 8 but Google
says this is an improper number. The bus is about 1.5 inches long and
0.5 inches overall wide. It looks very good with many Z-scale models.
If anyone wants a couple of photos of the bus and/or box contact me off
line and I'll take a couple. I'm pretty sure I sent this to Loren last
year who was going to take a stab at contacting the distributor which I
think I traced to San Diego or when he in was in the San Diego are, but
that was the weekend Robert left his module out in the sun ...and we all
learned that was bad news. Anyway, any sleuths out there might be able
to track these down models. We could all benefit as the several models
I got were really pretty nice. ...never did try the gum...

Recently a couple of members were talking about a z scale school bus.
think it was Robert (or was it on BAZ?) I thought that I had book

chasing down a couple of motorcycle gremlins for two different

I just wanted to focus on what I needed to order up for the winter box
layout I'm starting. So the questions are who makes the American
school bus, and also who makes utility vehicles from that period as
thought that I found some the same time that I looked up the bus. Any
will help sooth my frazzled nerves, either that or an adult beverage!

our "VEHICLES" page at www.searails.com. There is also a
special offer for advance reservations for the small school
bus, and an additional offer for specific sideboard decals.
Thanks for supporting Z scale.

It was Arrowhead--I bought a whole fleet from him. I would say they
qualify as 70's buses. They look just what I drove back then--and
better than what I drive now. If I were you I'd contact him direct

- I'd like to thank everyone who responded. Yes it was arrowhead that I was
thinking of, that he's on ebay totally blanked out of my mind. Jim are you
taking advance orders for your new bus?

- Dear Arie:
I got one of those school busses. It has not arrived yet, but I got
one and someone else got one.
The e-bay number was 5943251595, so if you punch that number in you
will see the bus again and who I bought it from.
I think you are right in that he had other vehicles as well.
- Yujin is Japanese company that makes small candy and gashapon (gumball
machine) toys. I don't know where to purchase the type you saw. You might be
able to find them through a hobby or toy site that deals in Japanese
Tomy (another Japanese company) is well know for their N-scale bus models
that came out in Japan. The cost about $2 or $3 dollars are highly detailed.
