Lego VW Bus – An Update

1 03 2012

Last November I blogged about the Lego model of a VW split-window campervan which had then probably just been released. According to the Lego web page it is a 1962 campervan, including pop-up roof and safari front windows.

Now a friend just sent me this photo of the completed Lego model, taken at the Lego Store in Frankfurt (thanks, Anke!). Reminded me of a wonderful series of blog entries I’d like to share with you: Zero-to-sixty-eventually (great kombi blog!) updates regularly on his daughter’s progress in building this model, with great shots along the way. Turns out Lego has put quite some effort in getting the details right. Have a look at the completed flat four cylinder boxer engine, and the lower section slowly taking shape. Including checkered floor and storage shelfs in the back doors. Amazing!

Love this – as campervan obsessive I see myself playing with it for many happy hours!

So this is what mine will look like when finished……years from now. 6 yr olds are slow! Thanks for the blog refs. Your travel posts were awesome and make me want to tour NZ now!
