Look, a car!
As a kid I built nothing but cars with Lego. Well, except when I played space. Or castle. Or pirates... Anyway, I built a lot of cars, trucks and the like. I was a boy after all. And although I fancy more imaginative creations today I still take pleasure in building something that goes wrooom! once in a while.
In his comment to the first post of this blog my dad said something about a T3 Bulli. A Bulli is what the Volkswagen Van is called by it's german fans, T3 referring to the third model from 1979-1992 – the car my dad happens to own. To be precise, he owns one of the 2500 "Limited Last Edition" Multivan models from 1992. It's red and it's blocky – I knew what to do. So here is the result.
Last Volkswagen to be rear-engined by the way. The round thing up front covers the spare wheel.
It was quite a fun build. The detachable upper part wasn't intended at first, but with all the SNOTing (?) going on it sort of happened by accident.
Lots of pics on Brickshelf.
