Don't think back then we would have seen Plymouth using a VW van to deliver parts. :lol:

 

But Nothing much cooler than the old VW Van's!(and Bugs)

Nice job on the build, really looks good!

Of course wrenching on VW's for years kind of makes me a little biased towards them! B)

Yeah, probably not very likely, but it looks cool anyway. :P

 

Nifty T2.

Thanks everyone! :) I just adore Plymouths, and since those decals seemed to be the only white ones I have that would fit, seemed like a perfect choice! Bit of imagination goes a long way B) Cheers!

Been there, done that too! :lol:

In 1968 I entered a local model contest. Built a "gasser" and found some old decals in a friends parts box for a name on the car "Hemi Hunter" seemed appropriate enough.

I took second place with it! The only time I ever won anything at a contest.

Problem was the car was a 68, Charger!!! Guess I got the wrong idea as to the meaning of the name! :P

I love the bus! I remember seeing one of these at our local VW dealer used as a parts vehicle but, it wasn't decked out like yours. Cool!   :)

Are there TWO of them? Or does the pic itself seem to change color? Is it purple, or blue? Either color, it came out great! I LIKE VW busses.

Thanks everyone! There's only one, for some reason outdoors the Tamiya Purple seems to look... Blue? Rather annoying.

Okay, took some more outside photos to hopefully show off the purple better..

And Hemi my cat insisted in being in one.

Nice looking VW model.

Your camera is the reason the paint looks different - it's the white balance, which changes with the source of light.

Sweet build! Always had a soft spot for VWs whether van, bug or Karmann Ghia. Been looking for the Ghia kit, a little hard to find but might see one at model shows. You did a great job on the van
