Hello Siara!  Glad to see you alive and well!  Remarkable work as usual.  What's not to like about this? :D  Is the "VW" PE after market or did you design and have made up?  Lookinf forward to seeing more! ;D

WOW! I would say your best work yet - totally believable, like a photo. Yes, al your other work is like that too, but this is just toooo real. AMAZING! I've saved the pix to try to learn. I was loving it with the unpainted panel rust eaten through - then as I scrolled down..WOW!

So glad you have been modelling, and that you are back!

Please tell us your reasoning for this choice and how you plan to wow the world!

Thanks for the kind words guys.

I always wanted to build split screen VW van.
Now i know some of the techniques needed to represent worn vehicle i thought it would be good time to build one.
Im glad you like it.
Im not far off from completion- just the inside of the cab to be scratch built, and the details like door handles, mirror, and clamps on the rack to be done.
The finished model will be propbably published in Tamiya Model Magazine.
More pics soon.

Yes, I agree...because the final result is a photo of the real thing..or the real thing shrunk by a shrinking ray
