VW Single Cab Pick-Up
Posted by PatW on Tuesday, August 29, 2017 10:57 AM

Having spent a while with my previous resin bodied DoKa, I thought I'd build up the Hasegawa kit that I'd copied so many bits from. Firstly my inspiration was the SantaCruz Cycles Truck.

 

So this is mine with shaved door handles, and a few additions, rusty-ish truck floor, sun visor, scratchbuilt wipers/exhaust pipes,truck style rear view mirrors, and borrowed the bikes from the DoKa. Plus home brewed decals.

You're putting these out faster than VW itself.

Yes roony it seems they are trying to catch me up! I've got one van and two campers to go!

Not yet perhaps, I have a few rally cars to catch up myself!

Hello Pat!

Very interesting, Your "Pritsche" is lookin' good! I have finished my Van some time ago:

I'm curious, how did you do the suspension drop? Where do the wheels come from? My chassis looks like this:

Thanks for sharing and have a nice day

Thanks a lot,  Pat, but would you care to show us a photo of your chassis, how you did the drop? And I would like to know where did you take your wheels from, they look good! Thanks in advance and have a nice day

The Porsche Fuchs rims and tyres came from a failed Revell Porsche 914 (my favourite) build. I've just looked in my picture file for this but I only have a shot of the rear when test fitting the engine, before painting it.
