VW Samba bus 'Love At First Sight'

Recommended Posts

This is a series of firsts for me. First post here, first 1/24 scale model, first 'civilian' car and first salt/hairspray weathering attempt.

 

Revell VW Samba bus with Masterbox figure and scratchbuilt diorama background.

Looks great.  Love the dog yellow tagging the tire.  Cool backdrop also.  I still haven't got up the nerve to try rusting up a model.  One of these days.

Welcome aboard, great start!  Very simple yet effective diorama, and success on the weathering.

Very realistic looking weathering. A lot of great little details on the interior. I'm guessing this guy isn't going to buy it based on his dogs disapproval.

I like that! Love the weathering, something I'm keen to try but not confident enough yet.

Fantastic first post. Someday I hope to build a model of the  65 split window sunroof van I owned in the early 1970's which was only in slightly better shape then your model.
