1964 VW T1 Jet Dragster

Post by duffy-duck21 » Tue Jun 28, 2022 2:59 am

After I saw the original car for the first time a few years ago, it was immediately clear to me: I have to build it.
The T1 is simply a cuddly, likeable car with a wonderful feel-good design.
The original car is extremely clean and built with love.
According to the website, the car is registered in England and is, Attention: street legal!!!
Of course, this only applies to driving with the normal engine in the rear.

For my build I used Solido's VW T1 Pickup:

My build should not be a 1 to 1 replica.
Originally I wanted a turquoise instead of the candy red, but ended up with light blue metallic.
The rims and a few attachments also do not correspond to the model.
The biggest challenge was building the turbine.
My turbine could be a bit thicker in diameter, but I had to use what came closest to the original.

The finished model:
