The Leyland-MCW B36D was an underfloor-engined single-deck bus manufactured for at least eighteen countries from 1949 to 1971. 3,564 samples were built at four factories (three in the UK, one in South Africa) from 1949 to 1971, with 1,299 Olympics (36%) built as right hand drive and 2,265 (64%) as left hand drive. It was a very durable heavy-duty bus which ran in arduous conditions for longer periods than ever envisaged by its designers.
300 of these B36D vehicles sold to the Istanbul municipal bus fleet in 1968/9 were named Leyland-MCW Levend, a word meaning a crack soldier. They served nearly to the year 2000. None were preserved 🙁
I’ve made a printable 3d model of the legendary bus which I’ve spent most part of my childhood and youth in it, travelling from place to place in Istanbul.

The Messerschmitt KR200, or Kabinenroller (Cabin Scooter), is a three-wheeled bubble car designed by the aircraft engineer Fritz Fend and produced in the factory of the German aircraft manufacturer Messerschmitt from 1955 until 1964.
This is a 3d printable model toy of the vehicle. The canopy opens and closes, wheels turn etc. Nice gift for your child.
The Railton Special: A Thrilling Tale of Tire-Squealing Speed!
Hold onto your hats, ladies and gentlemen, because we’re about to take a wild ride through the exhilarating world of the Railton Special! This ain’t your grandma’s sedan; this is the stuff of automotive legend, where horsepower meets the pursuit of insanity and then goes, “Hold my oil can!”
A Uniquely Insane Beginning
Picture this: the late 1930s, a time when engineers were less concerned with cupholders and more interested in making things go fast. Enter Reid Railton, a mad genius with an itch to build a car that would send other vehicles crying to their garage. His mission? To break land speed records and make every other car feel like it’s stuck in reverse!
The Heart-Pounding Power
Beneath the hood of the Railton Special lay the heart of a beast, a supercharged 27-liter Rolls-Royce V12 aircraft engine that was basically a mechanical dragon on wheels. With a wild 500 horsepower – that’s right, 500 – this engine made other engines whimper and beg for mercy. It’s the kind of power that could make 0 to 60 mph feel like teleportation, and it did it in less time than it takes to order a fast-food burger.

In the early 20th century, the quest for speed and power in the automotive world was reaching new heights. During this era of innovation and competition, the Fiat S76 emerged as a symbol of engineering prowess and a testament to the relentless pursuit of speed. Also known as the “Beast of Turin,” the Fiat S76 stands as a captivating chapter in the history of automobiles.
