All I can say is "WOW"! Now that's an Eagle, and a new one at that!

Will be nice to see the completed coach. Wink

I agree it looks nice, but the classic look certainly dates it.  It just doesn't look like a modern coach fresh off the factory floor.

I like the look of the model 25 motorhome model better, but I also agree that it looks less like a bus than a motorhome.

Very traditional Eagle look. At first sight it looks like a dent in the drivers side front or a large crease. I don't think the transition from 102 body to the 96 front end is as smooth as it could be but I like it. Farther back on the passenger side appears to be wavy. Might be shadows. Front cap has some weird lines on outside edges (turns out to be lighting)but I still like it. I also liked the other one other than the squareness. Look at front bumper on drivers side. Dent? I think their worst enemy is their photographer and web guy.

Good to see new production (as opposed to prototype) Eagles being built, and I'm sure there is a market for the 'retro look'. Cannot get my head round anyone would want a new coach with all that corrugated iron on the outside though....

A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.

Now that's more like the Best Looking Coach on the road. Takes ones breath away. I have a hard time liking all the box looking coaches they are now building, they all look alike.
