  1. Thank you all of your comments! For cleaner side profile I decided to make kinda " HT- looking " side glass.
  2. And finally pics with my other pritchen from the same kit:
  3. Hello! So this one is a ´67 VW Pick - Up ( or pritchenwagen in Deutsch ) kit from Hasegawa. I decided to sand away any excess detail from it and to give it a typical 90´s custom show car look; clean appearance with semi gloss pearl white paint and modern wheels.. Those 13" BBS wheels and tyres came from Scaleproduction, paint is from Tamiya and seats are resin Volvo P1800 units from Air - Trax. Finnish custom ordered licence plates. glass is made from Raboesch smoke tinted PVC- sheet. pics:
  4. Hi! I built this Polar Lights - not - so - great - snap kit as a mild California looker. Paint: Tamiya Tyres: AMT Must fix that panel line in front of the windshield someday. Here you go with those pics:
  5. Hi!. This is my version of a well - known Tamiya kit. Local ( Finnish ) plates, pegasus wheels and tyres and some minor modifications. Tamiya spray paint layers in following order: - pink primer - gun metal - clear red - clear - clear green - clear - pearl - clear x 2 As usual, all comment and questions are more than welcomed. Into the pics we go:
  6. Hi! I build this one from an Airfix Quickbuilder snap kit in two days just to get something new to the shelf... Tamiya paints and some scrarchbuild parts and Revell wheels & tyres. I just wanted to see if a kit as simple as this could be converted into a decent looking shelf model..
  7. I don't know what that thing is I just found it from my partsbox.
  8. Sorry I ment MPC not AMT. MPC Pacer has those tyres - but only two tyres / kit ( for the rear axle ). So I went and bought several pacers to get enough tyres.
  9. There isn´t. The is not a single one 4x4 VW Bus kit available unfortunately. In Europe market that Vanagon is T23 and VW:s own name for 4x4 is Synchro.
  10. David.. Both Air - Trax guys, Tapani and Juha are my friends and i have many many examples of their kits on my stash.. The quality is really high so you really will get quality for every €, £ or $ you spend.
  11. Thank you David. I found out that best way to build this kind of kit is simply to put up an assembly line for various sub assemblies like those seats. In many building stages there were need for some series type repeating assembly work. I really am going to built similar bus for myself also in the near future.
  12. This one is an AMT Superbug gasser kit that I detailed a bit. Color is Tamiya pearl light green, wheels are Revell `49 Merc steelies with Polar Lights VW hubcaps and tyres came from modelhaus. Windows are made from acetate and the exhaus system from aluminium as well as hood support. And here are those pics:
  13. This one is a Hasegawa VW pritchenwagen ( pick - up ) from 1967. It was built almost box stock. Wheels are from AMT 51 Chevy with AMT winter tyres. I also lifted suspension a bit. I do not know what that gadget on the bed is, I found it from my parts box and it looks cool. On doors there are local weight numbers that were mandatory ( by law ) on pick ups here in Finland back then. Model has finnish licence plates and on the rear window you can see a 80- sticker that tells you that back then vehicle maximum speed was resticted to 80 km/h on pick ups.
  14. This was very time taking and in some ways a stresfull but also very rewarding build. I must say that although this kit is not for the faint - hearted it stil is fun to build in some twisted way.
