Red sled tins? I wonder why they did that.

Paint them black. Wink


Thanks Everett, I think it would look so much better in black, Ive noticed some issues along the assembly,for example, the spare tire includes a drum, I sent an email to De Agostini regarding that and I havent received feedback from them. That really piss me off since in the brochure the spare tire is showed without drum.

If you are going to paint them, paint the valve covers too.

Or maybe wait until you have the complete engine in case other things are strange colors?

Volkswagen: brand history (2)

Volkswagen started the 1960s beating a production record after another, but at the end of the 60s, it faced its first crisis: it began to be clear that relying on the bug had become a risk for the future of the brand.

Ha. That's funny. Its fair game once it's on the internet it seems. I've had several of mine pop up in ads, peoples pages, mags, and books. Last one I saw was one I did give the nod for in a book and was happily mentioned.

Throughout its long commercial history, the T2 received a great variety of engines. From the traditional air-cooled boxer to the flex-fuel of the last units manufactured in Brazil, the propellers of the Transporter T2 did not stop evolving technically.

Assembly No. 45

Evolution of T1 (1965-1967)

During the last years of the commercial career of the T1, Volkswagen continued making it evolve always with the same initial philosophy. The continuous improvement of technique and mechanics made these last Transporters of the first generation the most advanced.

I like those transmission boots - nice detail.

Both heater tubes go into the center tube to carry heat up front?
Doh! Only Kombis do that, Deluxes have one pipe that goes under the rear seat for rear passenger heat

It looks like it would be very difficult to change that.

Do you know if the top side of the cargo floor has the rear seat heater tube?

This is what a Deluxe looks like, there is a cap on one side and the other side goes right up through the floor to the rear seat heater log:

It looks so much complicated that I thought, despite it has the heater tube under the passenger seat, I think Ill pass on that modification since the bridge and the torsion bar were designed to fit in as is.
Anyway, model will be heavy enough to lift it up Laughing Laughing Laughing

Assembly No. 50

The Transporter with raised roof
The Transporter had versions for almost all tastes and needs. Thus, for customers who required more cargo volume than that provided by standard models, the Wolfsburg brand launched, in the early 1960s, a variant with raised ceiling.

Assembly No. 52

Evolution of T2 (1967-1969)

The new generation of the Transporter, the T2, entered the market with the difficult challenge of replacing the original concept. Volkswagen introduced several technical innovations, although it maintained the same philosophy that had characterized Type 2 since its inception, a formula that proved to be a winner.

The bumper detail looks nice

If you want to, paint the splash pans and maybe even the brackets black.

The splash pans were originally black and the bumper brackets were the same Silver White color as the bumper blade.

Painting the brackets might be a pain though and maybe that is not visible anyway?

My bumper from my old '64 with all the correct colors (USA style with overriders):

I love the details of this scale model, and the suspense of the weekly updates.
