i have allways wanted a yellow leyland,so finally im getting round to it,this will not be in 884 johns league,im kopping out by using the uh 1494's chassis,which is inacurate,looks wise and size but i can live with the extra length as its only 3 mm difference,i will be using the cases cab and floorpan,rear wheels are robbed from a uh ford 5000,not sure yet on the ford tyres or the cases tyres for the rear,front tyres look to big,so i will see if there is another alternative,a big thankyou allready to 884john,valley axe man and Sean for info,all i have done so far is loosely offered up the rear wheels to the case 1494,i can source the yellow paint but only in a tin,i would like an aerosol,Sean has helped me out there,and John and Paul have given me loads of info to help me

i looked on konedata the real 1494 and 802 have 10,00-16 front tyres,rears are 16,9-34's on both,so ok for that,the wheelbase is going to be 3mm out,i will have to live with that,the indicators on the 1494 are wrong for the leyland so i will change /alter them,and also will have to remove the case decal in the rear window,i will be painting the interior of the cab,as that is all wrong for the leyland,anyway wont be doing anything to it until the weekend,i have a bonnet,grille and exhaust sourced

Its a pity you werent going for a later Marshall 802 Paul, the XL's with the creeper gears in them were 200mm longer so the bit of a difference in the wheelbase would be less noticable compared to one Johns non-XL chassis models..... but happy to help with the info you asked about :)
