The Volkswagen T1 flatbed "Renntransporter" with longer wheelbase as used by the "Rennstall Bunker" in the late 1950s
About this creation
I already built the 550 spyder with the T1 Renntransporter in mind. I wanted to build this team in 4-wide scale since I first saw Senator Chinchillas fantastic big version in the Classic Race Teams group.

So this is basically a 4-wide version of his model.

I already had made some 4-wide T1, especially my small version of the 10220 Camper. So the basic design of the T1 was already there.

I wanted to have the Porsche and the T1 as 4-wide models, so I had to leave the idea of hinges for the side panels. Instead of hinges and tiles like on my earlier double cab flatbed Transporter I used three 2x4 tiles on each side. To imitate the opening of the side panels the tiles can be positioned 1 stud lower.









Ah, the cargo has arrived ;-))
Art Bunker (USA) / Charles Wallace (USA) finished the Sebring 12 Hours 1957 (the 2nd race of the 1957 FIA World Sportscar Championship) 8th overall and 1st in the Sport 1500 "Class F", driving Bunker's Porsche 550 spyder.

On the flatbed between the wheels of the loaded car there is room for two 1x8 tiles.

The tiles can be used as rails for a ramp to load and unload the Transporter.

There is goes...









And there it is, ready to go...

Credits: Please take a look at the 4-wide T1 models built by Isaac, Hot Rod, Dylan, Klingus and Ben and you'll find one or another detail I used on this model.

So this is my VW T1 Renntransporter as used by the Rennstall Bunker. I hope you like it :-))

And last, but not least an idea Marcus Paul had, the...

Quoting Klingus 123 Fantastic! I really like it.Nice design and great shaping for a 4 wide
The split window is still the same I saw on your one first. I have used it on all my T1s since then :-)) P.S.: I've already made so many T1s that I forgot to add the credits for this one. Sorry for that. The credits are there, now.

Quoting Hot Rod ... This Flatbed is excellent, one thing could make it more challanging: to make the sides of the bed tumble! ...
I've thought about that a lot, but the hinges need at least a plate and a tile in thickness on each side. That wouldn't look right as a 4-wide and I wanted to stay 4-wide with the Transporter, too. I had also thought about a 5-wide Transporter but decided against it. So the 2x4 "displacable" tiles were the best compromise. P.S.: You can see the tilting side panels on my blue T1 flatbed Transporter, the remaining space between them is less than 3-wide: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/297119

Excellent Rennstall Nils! :D I knew one was missing in my collection! lol This Flatbed is excellent, one thing could make it more challanging: to make the sides of the bed tumble! (using kind of hinges) than, the already cool, way it slide up and down! ; ) 5/5

Great work with both vehicles! I like how you made the windows for the transporter's cab, and the curves and smoothness of the 550 are also very impressive.

Quoting Loek Marcus ...You stay the best 4-wide builder for me, lovely builds everywhere!...
Thanks a lot, I apreciate that! Oh no, I'm almost flushing... ;-))
Quoting Loek Marcus BTW, could I get your opinion on my next car to build? Can't decide :)
Sorry, Loek, if you don't know that, I don't think I can help you. It has to come from your heart... And then there is that sentence with the patience again: Sometimes you just have to wait for the ideas to come...

Quoting Todd Wilder Great little builds! Love the chrome wheels. You should get a Flickr account and post some of your stuff there too, that would be cool. -I.W.
Ahem, Isaac, I think you should take a look at your list of contacts on Flickr and you'll find a surprise ;-)) By the way, as MOCpages' image server was down, you can click on one of these images here and you'll find another surprise ;-))
