VW Buss

Another old build I did many years back. A 1/24 scale VW buss.I just getting the hand of weathering rust and aging effects on my models. I still had a long way to go but it is nice to see how far one has gotten over the many years of modeling.

  1. Another “Oldi-but-not-moldie” vehicle that is awesome, Paul. Well done! Superb weathering, rust, and realism!

    • I almost forgot to mention, but I traveled around Germany, France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Austria in a passenger version of a 1967 VW Bus during the summer of 1967. It was my first trip to Europe. (We also visited England, but not in the VW Bus.) I remember this vehicle as very dependable and considering the fact that there were 9 of us, not TOO uncomfortable!

  2. You’ve certainly achieved a well worn look that was so typical of these vehicles, but, somehow, they still kept going.

  3. “….and the hits just keep on comin’….” – you have a talent, sir.

  4. Another nice one.

  5. Looks great !! My uncle had several VWs, starting with a ’55 I still remember that blue paint that seemed to a different shade every
    12 months.
