Hi to all the toymakers,

My latest project is a VW Kombie. Attached are some photographs.

I searched for toy plans of the kombie on the internet, but had no success. So I then decided to use plans of the actual vehicle as well as photographs and designed the kombie as I went along. 

The bottom half of the project was made of silky oak which came out beautifully. It is an easy wood to work with and is quite tough. The wheels were made using imbuia and wild olive was used for the hub caps. I have no idea what the roof, window panels and chairs were made off. They were off cuts that I discovered in my workshop.

Regards

Dolf

Very nice work, when I read "Micro Bus" in the heading my thoughts went back to summer of 1977 when my buddy had an old green Micro Bus for us to get around in. Your Bus has a different look Dolf but it's right for what I'd want to see , nicely done.

Wow Dolf, what a great kombie. This exact model was my childhood family car.
What a memory spinner. We went everywhere in it. Mum, dad and 4 kids, loaded with 2 weeks of camping gear. We had a full length roof rack which held a huge old canvas tent and other gear. I don't know how it handled all that weight, but it just kept chugging along.
That silky oak works beautifully.
Some really fine craftmanship.
Thanks for the memories

Cheers
Rod T

Thanks for sharing this. I had and old VW bus several years ago. I can tell you it did not look even remotely as good as this one does.

Thanks for sharing....
