This is my first attempt at making a wooden model vehicle, it was going to be a surprise gift fro a friend who had a passion for VW Campervan who’d had a serious illness unfortunately he passed away before he Knew anything about it! It now resides In my man cave as a reminder of what a good lad he was.

I purchased the plans from Dutch Patterns https://dutchypatterns.com/pattern/vw-bulli-t1/ and filmed the making of the vehicle on my YouTube channel. https://youtu.be/-2F1o7QLO4k

Hopefully it’ll be interesting to a few of you and might learn something from my mistakes

Regards
Steve

Nice job. Love the detail work you put into this. Images remind me of the 60’s tooling around in a van. Being sideways was how we were then as well.
