Lets get lost! Hasegawa Volkswagen T2 Dcab (modification)
Posted by streetrod60 on Monday, July 10, 2017 5:30 AM

this is an old post, some of you may have seen it on instagram. I made the dcab modification from Hasegawa Volkswagen T2 Van, scratch Build the roofrack, and crates. and i made the diorama from various materials, scratch build on : artifical rock, artificial trees and bushes, artificial soil, resin waters. No weathering on the Doca, because i want it to make it like a "lost contest bus" on the wild nature abandon jetty.

Here it goes some pic :

Outstanding work !

-amazing water detail

-right plant types in the right locations        

-cool vw


-dock needs a center wooden post to support vw weight or move vw back a bit (a real vw wood break through a dock like that) 

PS Keep up the great work !

 Now that you've gotten lost , I have a captive audience ! Two questions . Why the severe negative camber on the rear wheels ? and howcome no dust on what is to me a very lost Bus thingy ? Oh ! By the way ! Absolutely , love your ground-work and scenics . Can you swing by the New Braunfels Rail Museum and give our club members a tutorial ?

 I asked the question about " Bus Dust " because you have a kick Butt shiny and reflective  finish . Is that Future Floor Care or Tamiya clear overcoat ? AWESOME ! ! !   T.B.

Ohhhhh, thanks for posting- I hadn't seen this before! 

Great job on the van, don't know how you guys do these beautiful gloss finishes. And the diorama looks awesome too!
