Hello

I'm new in the Forum and this is my first post here. I got the address of the forum through my brother-friend Uelder Valongo who also has some posts here.
I am brazilian but live in Paderborn, Germany.

I'm building this VW Bus as Custom style (Revell kit). There are still some minor details to close it completely.
Uelder started this kit but I brought it to Germany to get it finished.
Colors are automotive Pure White and Palha Beige. The interior has got some wooden finish and the seats fabric cover.

Hope you enjoy. Comments are welcome.

I really like the color scheme and wheel and tire combination, but the quiet details like the windscreen are most impressive.

That's awesome...Very subdued colors are a great choice, they make you really look at it to see all the details...

Hi Guys, thanks for the welcome words! :D :D :D

MrObsessive, the sun roof is a simple piece of black paper, like the ones for printers, cut to size, folded into the position and glued the edges. I also liked the final result

ismaelg, que bom, assim podemos trocar umas palavras em português...

kod38, the wheels are not from a Jada but from AMT Ford 34, painted red with paint for fabric, it is easier to remove.

Jairus, thanks for your words! For us, it's really a pleasure to participate of this Forum and exchange some notes with you and all the nice guys here. Sorry to disappoint you but the bus' got no engine :cry:

Steve H., I agree! :wink:

Hi JAFFA, no pics from interior so far. But I'll get them soon.

Once again, thanks for all comments.

Marcelo
