After building the ADAC bus with Hacksaw BoB, I decided to build one for myself along more Volkswagen lines. (Rear engine, transaxle, etc.) Many parts, including the Corvair "mill," came from the reissue of the AMT Depth Charger. The only original parts from the old AMT bus kit are the body, parts of the chassis and taillights.

Hey Blue Baron, we need to meet! We both live in Tampa, and we both seem to be just as passionate about small VW's (toys, models etc) as we are about the "big ones".

I have a large kit collection (VW and others) but lost my motivation to build when I couldn't show my work off. It's a damned shame there isn't a model car club in this area Crying or Very sad

As I step back and look at it, a few more nautical features would look neat.

Here's a Revell VW Street Machine model I built around 20 years ago, done up in the fashion of that era.

Note modified lowback seats and speaker tray in the back.

Thanks to Hacksaw Bob Gilmore for help with the VW Trends window sticker.

At the time I was trying to do something I hadn't seen on a VW model before.

The BRMs were cast by a jeweler, who posts here as Wagenmaster. They're solid silver, and are worth over $100, sort of the scale model version of real BRMs. (Just they're heavy instead of light.)
