What do I think? AMAZING
You and Beano Paul are the champions of scratch building and therefore my heroes. I like scatch building myself, but only achieve a very primitive quality - I would need time, time, time, ...
As a source you can use a Barbie action pack :mrgreen:

I fully share Michael's view. ;-)

Your new project is very interesting, Challenger77, and the proof is the amazing work you are doing on the VW Samba Minivan. :drool: :drool: :drool:

I will follow it with great interest to see the final result, which I have no doubt will be fantastic. :thumbup:

I am going to follow this thread quite closely as my the bulk of teenage years were spent in the back of a later model of one these travelling the UK with my father and mother. Incidentally, my father had converted the interior so that it worked better for our family and he used scrap wood to do it.

I have the T1 Westphalia Camper, only for the Windows , the Interior is worthless. Rude and no good details. As example the Sink is very shallow, so Iam waiting for a real Metalsink from Etsy. This will be a bit to big, hope i can modifiy it for my needs.

Made a little Progress, a small Board to serve the Coffee, and a drawer for Spoons or something.

Now i tried to build a Espresso machine from Scratch. there are several 3D Files, but i havent a Printer and all of them are not what i want. So i will glue some Plasticart togehther, eventually a LED for Lighting. Thats how it looks so far.

Hi Challenger,
good progress. Wonderful figure.
I think I have seen such footrests (not pedals) on old Vespa models.

I love the progress in your project, Harry, especially the two new female additions. :thumbup:

Just one doubt: you'll take the guns away from the "waitress" Lara Croft, won't you, or maybe you'll leave them as a warning for some possible trouble-making customers? :mrgreen:
