Hello!

Here is my Hasegawa Type 2 Volkswagen. This is former service car of airport of Easter Island... Now it's owned by a local surf shop.

I tried to add as much bamboo as I could. I also scratch built some stuff. That gear shift knob is carved from polyurethane. Hula lady is also totally scratchbuilt.

I opened the roof and scratch built that sun roof. Safari frames are photoetched parts, couldn't find any from markets, so I designed my own ones.

This has all the right charm, and great detailing. I love builds where you end up learning a whole bunch of new tips like the wire mesh over that seat. Excellent model and work. Thank you for sharing it with us.

That is just amazing. Tell us how you did the bamboo. I have a surf rod in the planning stages and I've been thinking about that.

Tell us how you did the bamboo.


I glued thin plastic rod around tube. After that I used small amount of putty to smoothen that area. I painted these with light brown. I used darker brown at these "knots". I used different materials with these bamboo sticks. Bumbers are pvc-tube. Antenna and gear shift are metal vire. Rails at back are ps-tube.

Man, this thing is cool. It is truely an island cruiser. I never liked the fold down truck bed on these things. The stake bed sides were a great idea to get rid of that eye sore! Its sweet.
