Nice work. If you did this in under 6 years Grampapete is gonna be pissed. Lol.
You European guys are craftsmen for sure. Can't wait to see the finished product.
Good Luck.

Grandpa Pete says Nice job !
When DID you start this ??? :D
has my build thread helped you any ?
It looks like you intend to use a type 1 upright motor .
What are you building this for ?
I wanted a camper that I could sleep in ; that's why I went with the type 3 flat engine and interior deck .
How are you going to match the bug gutters to the larger bus gutters ?
How are you matching the stamped lines in the roof ? bug/bus

Looking good! I see that it looks like you are leaving the upright beetle engine. Will you be leaving it exposed or covering like the busses with the inside lid.

Great idea to bring the bus roof design forward . I'll probably end up filling in all the " groves " on the bug and bus top pieces ...

Great progress :)
