    Hi Michi! Wow you brought this thread back from 4 years ago. sadly I have not done much work since other than look at it on my bench and say I need to finish this one. I have decided on different wheels I think look better. This is the most recent picture I have. Perhaps this Fall and Winter I will finish this monster build 





    Hi Jim! Just wanted to apply some gentle pressure on you cause it's definitely time for more mad builds!

    The Revell VW Samba bus lends itself to do many conversion possibilities, as do the Van and Pick Up that originated from Hasegawa. I think Revell re popped their van but not the pick up as far as I am aware.

    Michi's Surf bus conversion shows a lot of both originality and modelling skills.

    Thank you Noel, that's why i decided to make a triple cab. Cause VW never made one, only single cab and double cab.

    Amazing! Very unique indeed.

     I reckon this would be an awesome hill climb car. Pikes Peak sort of thing.

    really well executed. Top work.

    Thank you, Guy. This car would indeed be mad enough for Pikes Peak or maybe Goodwood.

    Very unique looking. I watched most of your build on this. You put a lot of thought and engineering into a very possible 1:1 type build.

    Thanks you very much, guys!

  7. I decided to make a 24th scale helmet to add to the model. The helmet is 3D printed, i have the .stl file from thingiverse. The visor is scratch built from clear plastic, mounted with metal pins. I have to make it a bit smaller cause like this it looks like a 70s helmet. Then paint in blue/silver and the visor in black.

    Excellent Paint Colour for the Body. I especially like the triangular fuel tank! Wheel choice is perfect, but I'd have chosen narrower front tires. And, That Air Scoop is Superb!  Easily one of the most Eye Catching features of the kit. Great Build.

    Thank you Alan!
    The body colour is a mixture from flat anthracite, some silver and gloss clear.
    When you read my WIP,  you learn this is a recycling project. So i had to use what i had left, that applies to the tires as well as to the fuel tank. The soop was fully scratch built, as were the headers, seats, frame and maybe some other smaller parts.

    All your work is cool but that trike is too cool.... that would be a terrifying ride for sure!! Kinda like one of those barstool racers with a GSXR motor on it, NUTS!!

    The T bucket is pretty sweet, but is that a small block Ford with a rear mounted distributor a la Chevrolet? Kinda bizarre... but oh well still a sweet build I'd be proud to drive!

    jap - caught me. had to cheat, cause the distributor was in the way for the scoop.

    Man, that big wheel  is stone cold cool, love it !!! T bucket is great!

    Very creative modeling here. The Big Wheel made me smile. That actually looks very doable in 1:1. Please post pictures when you build it.  

    Thank you very much , Carl & David!
    I always try to make cool stuff seperating me from others.
    If i manage to finish the Formula1 Hot Rod like i have it in my mind, it should turn out super cool.
