I'm sure some of you probably spotted this in the Iggy & Seb update from the end of March, but I thought it was just too freakin' cool and had to pass it along for those who hadn't.

 

I know I've seen the front bumper before...but I can't place it. If you have an info on it or it's builder, please share!

I've seen that one, and I'd love to know who built it as well. One of these days I'm going to blatantly rip off the idea- and power it with a VW Pancake 8. :rolleyes:

That's a very cool idea.

 

Hmmm....flat 8...that must sound fierce when running.

Hi,

 

If I am corect, the builder is a French modeler and his name is Christian.

He had posted in the past on here also. You can find his builds here:

http://plastimodelkits.keuf.net/

Just scroll down to section Mini trucks, Camions, Trucks and choose Camions US. OK it is in French but I use google translator.

Now about the model, I am not sure if the cab of this one is kitbased or totaly build from scrach.

 

Hope this helped,

Kostas.

Perhaps a better translation:

 

Good day sirs, this is my model. I built it with an enlarged VW body and mounted it on a Revell chassis. I've also mastered the VW/Tempo Matador utility truck. Here are some examples.

Why go through all that effort and  not use DP heads?

 

It is cool though.
