VW Thing Truck

I was asked to make a VW Thing a little while back. During the discussion it was decided a variation with a truck bed would be used as the model. This truck was sold at Barrett Jackson.

here is what I have so far. I’m getting close to the end, but lots more to go.

Excellent Wes!

Always good to see something VW and something a bit different! I like the flower detail.

So crazy. I'm surprised you still went vacuum formed on this one rather than just build straight pieces of styrene!

The panels are much stronger with the vacuum formed ribs. Plus all that sanding around the pieces would take forever.
