First Glasgow Alexander Dennis Enviro400MMC
UKBUS6525 ADL Enviro400MMC Single Door First Glasgow 33393 (SK19EOD) expected June 2022.
This is the fourteenth livery on the 10.9 metre long, single-door casting, 33393 was new to First Glasgow in early 2019 and carries a full and colourfully branded livery for route 77, heading to Glasgow Airport. Such unique feature, and the special, comprehensive livery and branding are 100% reproduced onto the model. The stand-out features of the branding are : “from every 10 mins” and “free WiFi” at the front; the big “77” on both sides and rear, along with key locations served “City Centre, Partick, QEU Hospital, Braehead, Renfrew, Glasgow Airport” on the nearside; “Frequent service to / from city centre from every 10 minutes”, “Pay contactless”, “Your best route to ... QEU Hospital – Braehead – Airport” on the rear. Further additional details carried by the model include the luggage rack in the lower saloon, and the special sunlight protection shade on the top of both windscreens. The Alexander Dennis Enviro400MMC is a one-piece casting whose clean lines accentuate the square, gasket-mounted windows and the livery application on which all logos and lettering are clearly legible. Another main feature on the model is its single tree protector at the front. The front dome on the model is significant, with curved windscreens on both upper deck and lower deck. Northcord Model Company is also creating new design standards within the interior of both saloons. These features, inside the compartments, will represent the real, outstanding layout of the Enviro400MMC, such as the extensive portrayal of handrails on upper deck and lower deck, etc.

The following models relate to the old EFE company
Alexander bodied doubledecker
"Coming soon" was a new casting announced at SHOWBUS 2009 - the Alexander doubledecker. Many casting variations were expected, including dual door but it was a non-starter as EFE concentrated on re-issuing previous models with different destinations and registrations. Illustrated is former Alexander (Midland) MRF120 (SMS120P) a Daimler Fleetline undergoing restoration at the Scottish Vintage Bus Museum in August 2009, photo by Dave Reid.

A 1/24th scale model of the RF was announced at SHOWBUS 2007,
the patterns were shown at SHOWBUS 2008 but the project was also still born.

EFE announced a new modern vehicle casting at SHOWBUS 2006 and gave the details in 2007 of the new East Lancs Olympus double and singledeckers. Uncertainties at East Lancs/Optare delayed commissioning of the model since branded the Optare Olympus and has since emerged as the integral MetroCity. In the meantime TTC announced the model to be introduced into their new range at TTC SHOWBUS 2011 but that too has stalled, with their Spectra and Versa models a long time in gestation and these projects have since passed to Jotus with whom TTC were working.
RML2306 bound for Sinsheim
For Sinsheim a model of London Transport Country area RML2306 (CUV306C) was produced with blinds set for Sinsheim.
