Hi guys,

Recently I decided to include a new member to my family, so I´m gonna start to build my new 62´Samba Bus scale 1/8, since I saw it for the first time I was impressed by details, I´ll include a few pictures of the first couple of pieces, every single week a new piece is released so it will take a lot of time to complete but I`m sure it worth it!, each part includes a magazine with a brief comment of the history of the bus and the instructions for assembly.

Hope you like!!

Thanks!

There will be 120 magazine issues, each one cost 10 dlls, 1200 dlls.... which for sounds like a lot of money but I think it really worth it!

So this bus is being built part by part on the installment plan? That's neat, but you're in trouble if you miss an installment! Laughing

I´ll need to find a good place at home for it, not quite sure if it will fit in my studio or in my garage! Laughing Most of it is made of metal so its final weight is almost 18 lb. I´ll post new pictures as soon as I have a decent progress on it. Cool

This is the first installment... it includes basically the nose and the emblem....which has an excellent paint, plastic pieces could be better although.

Here´s a brief comment regarding the content in the magazine.

From paper to reality: the birth of the Transporter

«Born» in 1949, the Transporter quickly became a worldwide success, but its gestation process was not easy. With the design and put into production in just one year of that completely new vehicle, Volkswagen - which in practice was a brand newcomer to the market - showed that it could be at the same level as the other veteran manufacturers.

This is the second assembly, one of the front wheels, I´m so impress on details, tire seems almost real it´s made of rubber however I had a hard time while it got installed but nothing that hot water and patience could fix. It even has Continetal inscription and tire size, hub cap its plastic that´s a little bit disappointing.

Samba: luxury on four wheels

Without doubt the most recognizable version of the first generation of Type 2 was the Samba. With its panoramic windows and its sunroof, it was the top of the Transporter range. Far from the Spartan basic models, the Samba was a model of real luxury.

Assembly 3

Engine lid and front bumper....

The lid is great, I wish bumper was metal but it don't....

The VW T1 Westfalia

Camper conversions are one of the most charismatic versions of the Transporter. Those offered by the German company Westfalia adapted so well to Type 2 that they were adopted by Volkswagen as an official product, in a collaboration between both companies that lasted throughout all generations of the Transporter.

The Brazilian Transporters

Volkswagen do Brasil has always been one of the most important subsidiaries of the Wolfsburg brand. The "Bug" was revealed as a very successful car in that country and the Transporter did not lag behind, with its own evolution developed by the American subsidiary.

Passion for Samba

The Samba model is the object of desire of many collectors and amateurs, which has caused a spiral of prices that has made it far from the reach of many pockets. Anyway, there is no doubt that the lucky owners of a Samba enjoy it enormously.

Uses of T1 in its infancy

From the beginning, the Transporter proved to be an enormously versatile vehicle. The different variants launched by Volkswagen allowed him to cover a wide range of uses and services that would not stop growing during the following decades.

The T2 Last Edition

The Transporter is a well-loved vehicle in Brazil thanks to its reliability and versatility, which allowed it to be manufactured there for decades, to the point of being the last country in which the T2 was produced. To say goodbye to the model, the Brazilian factory created in 2013 a limited series, the T2 Last Edition.
