« Part 6: Small cabin parts, Chapter 5 Part 7 of VW Bulli camper bus series Part 8: Front part 2, Chapter 3 »

.
This is the blog of the building of the VW bus according my pattern.
.


.
.
This build is from the prototype and after this is done I always do some changes in the drawing where necessary. So the final plan is a little (better) different. I used mostly Chery and Ash for the build.
.
. Comments are much appreciated.

Amazing amount of work goes into these models Jan, but your results are sure worth it.

Sorry Tony I didn’t told you. Working this way is much quicker than measuring all the pieces. And doing it this way it isn’t important what measuring system is used.

The same as you do with a word.
Select the picture subscription after it was downloaded. Than use the link button and enter the URL for this link. That’s all
I think that even in a blockquote this can be done.
