Two type two

Here are my finished Hasegawa type 2´s!
Both are painted with automotive laquer.
The grey one is box stock except for the sparebox tires and Polar Lights Herbie hub caps.
The pick-up has the 23-window bus bumpers, converted Revell Empi rims and also sparebox tires. The roof arch is scratchbuild.

I found a great website, I think it's Samba.org or something that has given me a ton of inspiration for projects like these, and your models look fantastic.

I love them both.
Do they have suspension detail or are they curbside only.
Yes please share your technique for window treatment.

It is very easy to blacken out the doorlines:
I just paint some dark Testors Metalizer colour (Exhaust or dark Iron for example) over the lines, let it dry for a few minutes and then wipe it away with a cloth and modelwax. The colour will stay only in the lines. If some wax remains in the lines I remove it with a hard brush.
That technique works only on Automotive laquer, not on enamels!
Don´t know about Tamiya paints...
Since there is no chassis detail even when you´ll build them box stock (poor kits), I´ve built them curbside... with toothpic axles :wink: .
Btw: What technique for window treatment?

I meant the trim (rubber)Sharpie pen?
I just bought 2 of those combi's that will be lowered just like yours.
I love the look.
