  1. Revell announced a new VW T2 bay window bus a while back, and I just saw this link on another forum which gives pretty much full details of what to expect. It is marketed as an easy click kit, but based on what I can see in the link, it appears to be a step up compared to most of that range, and much closer to a full detail kit. Yes, the engine is abit basic, but so is the one on their split window bus regular kit! https://www.die-leitplanke.de/herzlich-willkommen/bausatz-neuheiten/revell-vw-t-bus-m-1-24/ I wasn't expecting to like it, but am now very tempted to get
  2. QuickBuild Coca Cola Beetle (J6048) QuickBuild Coca Cola Volkswagen Camper Van (J6047) Airfix Quickbuild Range Airfix released a new range of easy-build kits some years ago that combine the looks of a model kit with the ease of assembly of a Lego block construction toy, with large self-coloured parts and stickers that add quite a bit of realism to the finished model/toy. As well as aircraft the range includes tanks and vehicles, with re-releases in different schemes and with new stickers opening up new markets. Each kit arrives in a bright orange box with C
  3. This model ticked off a number of firsts for me in model building....first 'civilian' vehicle, first 1/24 scale, first salt and hairspray weathering, so was really an ongoing experiment all the way through. The bus is the excellent Revell 1/24 Samba bus. The side doors, load bay and engine cover all open but the front door hinges were so fragile that I glued them shut. The figures are Masterbox and the wall is made from an old piece of laminate flooring painted to look like a concrete wall, with AK graffiti transfers. Paint was Vallejo, Tamiya and some oils for weathering. All co
  4. This is my recently completed 1:24 scale panel van (the one with the jägermeister box art). This kit has a number of firsts for me- -The first non-aeroplane kit I've ever built -The first non military kit I've ever built -And the first kit I've ever uploaded on Britmodeller All in all it I think it went rather well, with the exception of the doors that didn't seem to fit (the drivers door was too tight and the passenger door left a huge gap along the back of the door). However as I am the owner of a old beetle I can confirm that the doors never close qui
  5. Here for your enjoyment is another van that's going under the knife. I've applied some 10mm Tamiya tape to use a a cutting guide on the easy parts which equates to near enough a 9.5" chop The fun will be working out the screen and door cuts, although I may do without the quarter lights in the doors. Handles will disappear along with hinges etc for a clean look. I'm thinking of another Guinness scheme but using metallics for the black and cream. It will be lowered too with a suitable set of alloys added. What could possibly go wrong...?
  6. I was excited to build a brand new 1/8 scale kit from a new company after building so many Pocher kits over the years. Here are my quick building impressions of the new LeGrand 1/8 Collection VW Beetle kit (a complete kit version of the DeAgostini/ModelSpace partworks kit) a decorative metal sign is included body parts are prepainted with all necessary scripts and trim, wheels are metal, tires are softer than Pocher plastic parts are prepainted, bagged and boxed in groups (no sprues to cut!) the screws are nicely prepackaged in three compartmentalized boxes (you will have
  7. And I'm calling this one done. I'm off work poorly sick so managed to get this over the line at last. I hope you like it, I had fun. But before the pictures, I give huge thanks to @Marco F. over in Germany for his donation of the bodyshell. It saved so much time! As is often the way with these builds, the steering wheel touches the drivers seat. Ahem. So I'll call your attention to the door mirror instead. That front end again. Note the delete wipers option was ticked. SoCal Baby! The windows could do with a clean though. Yes, there is a small glue blemish on th
  8. Hi all, Today I actually managed to start my first model... the Tamiya 1966 VW Beetle. I was originally going to build this to be the same as the beetle I used to own however I believe it would be too difficult for a first model, I would have to change too much on it as mine was a ‘74 and therefore had different lights, bumpers etc. So I’ve decided to do it from the box (I may fit the opening rear windows I’ve seen on HighlightModelstudio.com). I’ve spent ages searching through the Hycote colours online to find one I like, I originally was looking at VW col
  9. Further to my Majorette VW camper ambulance project I decided to finally rejuvenate a little 1/68th scale Husky’ VW Beetle of 1969 vintage. The car was bought for 5p at a VW show about 35 years ago and was already in a fairly well battered state and it didn’t have its roof mounted luggage anymore. I decided that it had lain forlorn in the loft long enough and was in need of some TLC. After stripping it down to its component parts I decided to fill the holes in the roof rather than try to source a replacement luggage pack and to do this I simply used ‘Squadron’ Green Putty, which when dry was s
  10. Volkswagen Scirocco 1:25 kit from AMT Some of you may know but I’m a VW fan, having owned many different Vee-Dubs over the years, and still have a Mk1 Golf GTi in the garage for summer fun, and in my time 2 Sciroccos have passed through my hands. The Scirocco was a replacement for the Karmann Ghia coupe and was launched 6 months before the Golf so any teething problems could be sorted before the Golf hit the roads. Although it is biased on the Golfs platform (chassis) it was modified extensively to give a sportier ride, with its front mounted engines, with front wheel drive and
  11. So my wife saw the Airfix Quick Build VW Camper Van and it was acquired..... An hour and a half of building attempts later, and after many colourful metaphors later it just did not fit. The problem seems to be the two black benches are just too wide. Anyone one else tried this? PM
  12. Their QuickBuild VW Bug was really nice so I'm expecting good things from this one: https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/AXJ6017
  13. Hi folk,s I asked for this kit for Christmas and here it is,I 've seen a couple built here and one on the go at the moment will be a good reference for the build,I love the vehicles here on the forum but build mainly aircraft even the Beetle I built last year was an army version so I thought it time to boost number of vehicle builder's here by one.I love the fact that you can paint a subject to your own scheme and no one get's on your your case now decided on a 70's green,Here's the content's.
  14. This may or may not be how the beaches of So Cal could have looked if the combined forces of the U.S and Great Britain had not prevailed in WWII. Nice model to build with the addition of a scratch built roof rack, machine gun barrel exhaust pipes and after market nose art decals (slightly doctored). Finally got hold of some 1/24 scale sun loungers! Thanks for looking, regards Siffo.
  15. Here's my take on the T3 camper. It's what may or may not the campsites of Europe would have looked like in 1979 if GB and its' allies had not prevailed in WWII! Was once a proud owner of a T2 bay window Westfalia that took myself and the missus around Scotland. Anyone know of a T2 kit out there? Thanks to Ronald ''Dillon'' Watkinson my work colleague and also my friend for the sun visor and signage. Thanks for looking, regards Siffo.
  16. Hello again, this is my follow up to the "Jagerbomber" I posted up a few weeks ago. The mask set came with two versions so I decided to use the second on another iconic German vehicle. Great kit to build and no issues with the fit. Thanks for looking, Siffo.
  17. Hi guys, this is my first post. I got the idea from a Montex mask kit I saw on Ebay and utilised the masks and decals on the Revell kit and doctored their own decals for a tongue in cheek look. Great site and some stunning creations. Hope to post more of my collection soon, regards Siffo.
  18. Another kit finished this year... i like the final result..
  19. We've just received our stock of Belkits highly detailed 1/24 Scale VW Polo R WRC Red Bull Plastic Model Kit! This fantastic kit comes with photo-etched and night race parts included! Available while stocks last, so get your order in early! For full details, see our newsletter here.
  20. Hi Everyone, Here is my 2nd completed project of 2015. This is Revell's 1:24 scale Volkswagen Beetle New Style. This is an almost exact replica of my own car. The colour is very similar and as the model was made in Germany, the model is left hand drive rather than the UKs right hand drive. The kit is painted in Tamiya X-4 blue and black paint. Anyway here are the photos. Thanks as always for looking. Cheers, Rick
  21. Here is my VeeDub beach buggy converted from the 1:24 Hasegawa Kubelwagen. It has been shortened as per a 1:1 buggy and has had some custom seats from a Golf added, all pink as my Daughter chose the Tamiya Pink/ Gold for the body and the anodised pink for the chassis. Not sure on the seat colours but, Hey, I'm not the boss! Anyway piccys!
