1962 VW Microbus
A 4-wide Volkswagen micro bus. Flower power!
About this creation
I was inspired to build a 4-wide 1962 VW microbus, after seeing pictures of a 6-wide minibus by Sven Moritz Hein. The whole thing took about 3 hours to build, half of which was spent playing with various versions of the front.  Even though it meant I couldn't attach headlights, I finally settled on the design you'll see here.

If you like Volkswagens, also check out my other popular VW models:
- 1:20 scale VW Beetle convertible
-VW Beetles - new and old (Small scale)

   Here is a side view of the Microbus. When I took these photos, I'd forgotten to use a "fender" piece (or wheelwell or mudgard or whatever you want to call it) on the front wheels. The early VW Bus had a round front wheel well, and a square rear wheel well.

   This alternate design was the only way I could get headlights onto the facade. The real VW's headlights were much higher up, but I couldn't swing it, so I later opted to just remove them entirely and leave it up to your imagination.

Wow, that's lovely, a very cool 4-wide T1 Microbus. The front is awesome and I like the little details like the door handles. Well deserved 5 smileys for this one! :-))

Cute!! It's great the level of detail captured here in only a 4-wide space. I used to think it was nigh impossible to reflect a real car in 4-wide, and several models including this one have proven me wrong.
