A modeling question for those across the pond

this looks like a heck of a kit in 1/24. Can you tell what era this
bus is? The older the better, but its probably a more contemporary
version.
looking for specs to figure out how big this kit is gonna be, length,
height...

Looks like the "Routemaster" which was from the late 1960s-early 1980s IIRC.
They're about 30 ft long, 13 ft high and 8 ft wide.

At 1/24, it would be 15" long.

That would make 27' 6' bus in 1/24 scale 11-3/8" long.

This Routemaster is postwar, so not the one. (I am not a genius, but I did pick up a book on London busses last time I hit the Transport Museum in London...!)

methinks you are too modest. besides, i would hate to be a know-it-all or always right. how boring to have nothing to learn and never make mistakes. besides, you're also a raconteur and funny. between you and bill b and the other handfull of others, i get good info and fun. our brit contributors feed my anglophilia and have my gratitude.
