    Thank you very for kind comments guys. They are all appreciated.




    Thanks Bart. I haven't built Revell's Samba yet so I don't have a chance to compare. It is not hard lower Hasegawa's Buses. Just cut the front beam into three pieces, narrow it down, place it somewhere higher than its original position, use low profile tires, ant it's done



    I took some molds of Fuchs' and BRM's sometime ago and casted some sets.

    Maarten, it is not quite possible to slam an early bug without narrowing its front beam. Have a look this thread.

    VW T1 Panel
    Another old build of mine. I converted YatMing's combi into a panel. YatMing's bus has some poor details. I barely call it a "model". I thought it may look better with some weathering and accessorieses.

    Here how it looked before modification



    Roof rack and stuff on it are scratch build.
