VW Bus T1
!! 20/05/13 Update will come in the next weekS! Here is my last creation: a Volkswagen Type 2 T1 Bulli Samba Hippie Bus ... Van with working engine, steering and homemade gearbox
About this creation
Here is my VW van, also called the Volkswagon VW type 2 T1 Bulli 21 windows 23 windows pick up double cabin panelvan transporter Rugbrød Barndoor microbus splitscreen split-window splitties Junakeula Osztott ablakos Papuga hippie samba bus or for me just "dreamcar".
If you search in my Lego archive, you will find an old (and crap) Volkswagen Van I made 7 years ago (something like that). Because it was so crap and because I LOVE this vehicle I decided to build a new one (and because I am too lazy to buy the one from Lego).
On the technical part:
> working 2 cylinder boxer engine
> connected to a new and improved 4 speed manual gearbox (homemade) which is connected to a rear wheel
> + a working steering

The body:
It is on my point of view not a very difficult car to build. I worked a lot on the front mask and the "V" to find a perfect curve (on my old van the "V" was not perfect).
The back is very simple and so very realistic (in my point of view).
I tried to make the 21 windows of the real one, and if you count the little windows between the doors and the windscreen, we have it.

The interior: it is very simple too, and I tried to make it realistic, but not too much: 2 "large seats" (I don't know how to call it, may be benches), a steering wheel, a gear lever, a dashboard, and it’s in fact all

So thank you for watching and please rate and comment!



Here with doors open














The boxer engine in the back end : a 2 cylinder working one


Like this picture...




Here the interior: I only made 2 benches because I ran out of bricks...






Now comes a big work: the gearbox



You can see here the engine and the 4 speed gearbox, and the connection between them. The two outside axes move to change gears


And here the mechanism to change gear. The structure between the axes is connected to the gear lever


And here with his brother 8-P

Love the traditional colour scheme and interesting shaping gives it a uniques look. Great Work!

That's cool, very well shaped and with some cool Technic stuff inside. The front could need a little rework, but only the corners in front of the wheels and the windscreen which is a little too round (the original had flat glass sheets, there). The rest is awesome. Well done (4/5) :-))

Quoting Joost Cumps I like it very much, although the wheels are not in scale. But the body is really good, and the front is excellent!
I saw this "problem" too; that the wheels goes out of the van, and I will fix it when I will be back at home

This is really quite impressive; especially because it isn't simply a mod of the VW bus set. And the working functions are fantastic!
