I see that VW has joined with Playmobil to make a model of the VW T1 camping bus. About £45; looks nice.

I guess it doesn't qualify as a model, but I saw this online and am trying my hand at making it.

Latest model. The Aviator.

Had something like this back in the early 60’s, but not built out of wood.

I made this one -a subhatch- with blocks that I had lying around from when I was young, based on online photos of the original lego. Later I bought the one from Lego too ... I really could not resist ;)

I think your version, especially as you haven't resorted to making purpose made bricks for the tricky bits is fantastic.

Can you now please do a design & include instructions for a T6.1

Thanks in anticipation.

A few years ago (2013) I was an usher at my friends wedding. His mrs was really into VW campervans so he bought her the lego campervan as one of the wedding gifts but didn’t like the red and white colour scheme.

I helped him to change the colour (using cans of lavender spray dye) of the red blocks to match the purple from the wedding colour scheme.

It took us a few nights to do it, but the finish was incredible. The only visible red left was under the garage door as you can see below.

I’ve just built mine today with my 5 year old.
Lego is fantastic for father/son bonding.
Lovely rainy day project.

The Veeduber in me, now wants to mod it... :)
