JeroenS Posted May 2, 2022 Share Posted May 2, 2022 Hi all, just finished this in the first 2022 Blitz Build. My third VW T1 completion in a row actually I like the T1's a lot, needless to say. They make for great modelling subjects, and you can go from shiny (which I did with the Camper) to beat up workhorse (which I did with this build), or worse! The Hasegawa kit is really nice to build, and a huge benefit of the kit over Revell's T1 kits is that this is a one piece (well, two, the cab rear wall is a separate part) body. Other than that, the kit is really basic (no engine, no interior detail to speak of) but what it does splendidly is provide you with a really good looking pick-up version of the T1! Only things I don't like about the kit are the crude wipers and lack of number plate decals. It was a quick build even for a Blitz Build, I spent way less than 24 hours on it. The build log is here: Paint is Mr Surfacer black primer, then undercoat of Tamiya Red Brown, then Tamiya gloss coat on which I sprinkled salt to create rusty spots. Exterior paint is a random mix of Tamiya Medium Grey, Dark Grey and a bit of Black. I think, can't remember exactly Interior is Tamiya Medium Grey. Bumpers and wheels are not quite black, it was another random mix. Lettering was done in German Grey. Cargo from an abandoned 1/35 scale project but since the VW is not very big it works. The ratchet strap is a KFS item, all moving parts, pretty cool. Zero points for safety though Right, let's have some pics. A really fun build and another addition to the Van Dordt fleet I'll be on the lookout for more Hasegawa T1's for sure. Thanks for watching! 27 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
