Hit the road with the Revell VW T1 Samba Bus Model Kit!
At the end of the 1940s, VW developed several prototypes for a roomy vehicle suitable for transport purposes. Years later, from 8th March 1950, the first generation of the transporter went into production. The truck, with its typical V-shaped front and split windscreen, was available in various versions, including a minibus. The technology was based on the Volkswagen Type 1, so called Beetle so that the T1 had an air-cooled, four-cylinder, horizontally opposed engine. This reliable rear engine had a capacity of 1.2 litres which was increased to 34 hp in 1961.
The deluxe version of the minibus, the special nine-seater model, is still known as the Samba Bus and, with its oval roof windows, very comfortable seats, a folding roof and very many chrome parts, has an unmistakable automobile charm.
This 1:24 scale model contains 173 unpainted pieces that have been crafted to replicate this unique vehicle. This model kit is perfect for experienced model makers. It also includes the Revell Aqua Colour paints, a brush and glue you will need to complete it.
