HI.

This is my latest version of 1967 VW Kastenwagen ( = Van ).

Built as a sixties- style gasser it has a modified Corvair engine from AMT parts pak.

Paint is from Tamiya, decals are from various Revell kits.

I modified interior with revell seats and console.

Axles are VW original but raised with schratchbuilt and revell parts.

Comments are always welcomed!

Oh, and of course it has local ( Finnish ) licence plates and 80- sticker which means it only is allowed to drive 80 km /h on street ( this one really is NOT street legal here in finland. )

To keep it more on a suicide- style I also removed front brakes.

Tyres are from modelhaus with chrome wheels from Revell 60 Chevy Street Fighter 2.

Different and therefore interesting! 

I especially like the colors. Been planning to use that exact color combo on something for a while now--nice to see it looks so good! 

Well done and model on! B)

Definitely one  different build.  Looks a bit scary to drive, that is a whole lot of weight on some mighty small wheels and tires.  Still one mighty fine looking Gasser and I really like that fuelie Corvair.

Actually those wheels and tires in front are about the same size than original ones that came with the kit. At rear those wheels and tyres are bigger than original in widht and height.

I also think that this gasser is built as light as possible.

Thank you all of your nice comments.

This model was really fun to plan and build.

One does not always have to make the most obvious choices for starting point for a gasser.

Thinking a bit out of the box keeps things more interesting.

That is one great thing about the Gasser and Altereds classes; as far as body style, anything could be used.
