Iconic Repli­cas doesn’t just do vin­tage mo­tor coaches; the com­pany is also the largest man­u­fac­turer of mod­ern diecast buses. Take, for ex­am­ple, this Mo­tor Coach In­dus­tries J4500. It is loaded with mod­ern fea­tures, such as elec­tronic sta­bil­ity, an in­te­grated fire-sup­pres­sion sys­tem, an adap­tive col­li­sion-avoid­ance sys­tem, and a 360-de­gree cam­era sys­tem to elim­i­nate blind spots. All that and the abil­ity to trans­port up to 60 pas­sen­gers—nearly twice as many as the Mack BK—in lev­els of com­fort those 1931 pas­sen­gers couldn’t have dreamt of. Iconic’s replica is ren­dered in 1:87 scale, yet it has ex­ten­sive cast-in de­tail, paint, and logo work down to the most minute graph­ics. It’s one of sev­eral dozen model buses the com­pany pro­duces.
