Really, very please you keep sharing..and wowing! It is such a thrill to all modellers, I think to see a photo miniature of something, with detail and passion. I have never been too much of a fan of VW vans, but again, I think this is your best! (I know you disagree but the impact is tremendous)

You are a master, you are the Pep Guardiola of modelling.  ;D

Inside of the cab straight from the kit is so basic, even the pedals, handbrake, door lining are missing.
I dealt with most of it so far, as you can see from the pictures posted earlier.
Now i made the door lining from scratch.
I used the various Evergreen styrene sheets.
The door handles are made using stretched sprue, and painted Alclad Chrome.

Thanks guys!
Lights, and blinkers are on. I used the clear sprue for the blinkers, and PET bottle for the headlight lenses. Weathered to look old.

Hi Siara,

Your best yet. Even better than the Egg Zeppelin masterpiece!

Love that number plate.

Cheers,

Thanks Dougie!

Rear plate- it was the same shape as the front one, so bit of reshaping was required.


Chassis weathered, and exhaust painted:


One of the front hubcaps painted different color:
