Hasegawa 63 VW Samba Bus

Recommended Posts

I just finished this up after starting it almost 3 years ago😳.Its the Hasegawa VW 23 window Micro Bus kit.The colors are Tamiya Matt Black on top and Tamiya Black on the bottom.The clear is Duplicolor 1K.I lowered it. The bumpers are from the Revell VW Samba bus kit. The wheels/ tires are Empi 3D scale parts items.The roof racks are Mac Modelisme 3D printed items painted with Revell chrome spray and I did the woodgrain stain on them.The cooler is 3D printed by Detail Junkies/Shadowcraft customs.The Surfboards are two short boards from the AMT 65 Chevelle wagon kit.The various decals are from a Detail Junkies vintage VW set and the Decal Lady made the rest including the 1963 South Carolina plate with my wife’s name on it.I used a Detail Junkies VW bus photo etched Empi detail set on it.The 3D printed muffler is from the VW Dub model shop.The flip up front windows are from Highlight Model studio as are the interior panels.The steering wheel is from Revell 29 Ford roadster kit.The resin subwoofers and amplifier are Lex’s scale resin items.(Edit) I just realized the EMPI sticker on the back window is upside down 🤦 I replaced it with another one that is right side up.I built this one for my wife and it’s headed to her desk at work.Thanks for looking.

That's so cool!

Do you have links to the various aftermarket suppliers you used?  I've heard of Detail Junkies, but not the others.

Here’s some links Jonathan for some of the parts I used on my model.The Decal Lady does not have a website that I know of.She is on Instagram.The VDub model shop (Curtis Sanchez)can be found on Facebook.Lex’s scale modeling resin items can be found on that auction site we all love!
