Norton74 posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Model Team and Scale ModelingPut a tiger in your tank!* - Part 1 This VW Type 2 T1 “canvas” pick-up is the LEGO replica of a real T1 registered in 1956 in The Netherlands. It was used by the M.v. Noord, a little company based in Amstelveen (close to Amsterdam) that sold and delivered petroleum for domestic heating. Pieter Grabijn, son in law of the son of the first owner, found it in a barn few years ago. It was totally rusty. Peter restored the red pick entirely and now the machine looks really appealing. Below the T1 pictured at the circuit of Zandvoort (NL). This LEGO T1 is based on my previous Road Service T1 but with a different livery. Canvas stitching technique is the same I've used before but this T1 has both the right side and the back side of the canvas rolled up. The tarpaulin is also a little bit lower. Ready to be delivered petroleum jerry cans are located on the load compartment. The license plate is an old Dutch one: PV 88 17. The writing on the load compartment sides means "Esso petroleum for your domestic heating" (It's written in Dutch). Few days ago I posted the T1 on my Facebook page and when the owner saw the post he couldn't believe, he was incredibly happy for this LEGO replica. He showed the T1 to his father in law (the son of the first owner) who cried for the happiness and for the good old memories the T1 reminded him. He still lives in the same address you can see on the doors and even the phone number is the same...This is really incredible! *If you were born in the seventies, then you remember the famous slogan of the Tiger...
