    [MOC] VW Repair Shop

    A new home for my VW Collection, be it old or new or rodded, enjoy
  3. New LEGO/ Lego MOC, VW T1 BUS (VW Camper Van) Is still 10 grain width, the new version is not based on the past version of the upgrade, I refer to a large number of original drawings and objects, re design details, body length, internal structure, and customized manual spraying (silver effect) parts. The new version of the T1 will be a series of my design, I will be based on this chassis for a variety of T1 modified car design (such as: pickups, SUVs, racing cars, trailers and so on, of course, will also consider the static model). T1 is a classic, multi-purpose models, it is worth pondering, I hope there will be more based on the design of the personal style of the modified car appears, I will always maintain this series of drawings sharing. The current version is 1.1, the design will be updated at any time, with the design of the trailer will be released, welcome to communicate with me through MocPages, Sina (Weibo) and other social platforms. http://weibo.com/moonein http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/438905 https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-8059/moonein/rcpf-vw-t1-camper-vanvw-t1-bus-10-wide/

    Review Review: 60057 Camper Van

    My life seems to have been nothing but Campers recently. Still, when I saw a few of the new 2014 CITY sets available already at a certain toy store, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to produce an early review, given my love of CITY civilian vehicles. Having reviewed 2012's 4435 Car and Caravan, I'm interested to see how this latest addition to the outdoor recreation collection compares. Review: 60057 Camper Van Set Information Name: Camper Van Number: 60057 Theme: CITY Release: 2014 Parts: 195 Figures: 2 Price: GB £17.99 | US $19.99 | EUR xx.xx | AU $xx.xx | CA $xx.xx | DKK xxxxxx.xx Links ... Shop@Home ... Brickset ... Bricklink ... Peeron The Box Click for a larger full frontal image No matter how far our intrepid campers stray from the concrete jungle, it seems they cannot escape the City's looming tower, still visible over the trees in the background. The nine-year-old blue box surround suits this set; the lady protagonist paddles happily in the blue while her chappie puts his oar in from the artistically-rendered shore. As usual, this European version of the box features no part count, suggested age range or Choking Hazard warning. Several nicely-tesselated insets demonstrate the set's features on the rear. Modularity is assured, in the recent subdued format of bags alone rather than the individual modules' builds. Click for a larger image The highlight for me here is the fantastic spread of the new 2014 vehicles. I can live without the fire truck, but just about every vehicle here is right up my street. Gotta get that car transporter! Click here for a close-up. Note that the subversive Pokemon-esque 'Collect them all!' mantra (Pokemantra?) has gone; collecting all of these would be a daunting task for your average nine-year-old, and expensive for his or her parents. Our life-jacketed heroes parade with oars aloft on the box top: Ginger dude shows off his orange top in the scale inset. I really like that treescape in the background. Measuring 260 x 190 x 58 mm, the box is the standard size for this price point, demonstrated here in comparison to 2013's 60018 Cement Mixer: I've yet to even open the cement mixer box. Box Contents The usual thumb-tabs open the box, and out fall two polybags, each containing a smaller bag for fiddly bits; two instruction manuals; and the Dreaded Sticker Sheet: I dread stickers far less these days, particularly since the days of STickers Across Multiple Pieces seem to be over, and I even put these on this time. They are printed on a glossy white background, which isn't quite the same shade as the white of the bricks, but this isn't too noticeable. The Instructions Two similarly-sized manuals are provided, identical on the front save for the module number; both have covers made from thinner paper similar to the inside pages, rather than the glossier covers found on many instruction booklets. On the inside front cover, the newish cartoon demonstrates how you should sort your pieces before building; opposite this, acres of blue space surround diminutive depictions of the modular build: I don't know if it is deliberate, but the blus background has a vague watery pattern ... ... which continues throughout: The build is simple and rather pedestrian; the only SNOT-work is seen here on the front bumper. Piece call-outs are a little reduntant in a set of this size, but I'm not complaining. At the rear are found an advertisement for one of the new CREATOR sets, a CITY diorama, and the two pages of inventory. Page one is here; page two is on the inside rear cover ... ... and demonstrates the thinness of the cover paper and the presence of the evil WGW kid on the rear. The Parts The red canoe is the highlight of the parts from Module 1: it appeared in a few Pirates sets in the mid-1990s, and the mold hadn't been seen since 2001 until 2013's 79107 Comanche Camp brought it back to us in Reddish Brown. Otherwise, the selection is unremarkable except for the 1x3 tiles, which come for the first time in Green. Module 2's contents are a little more interesting, with some useful tiles, and I'm delighted to see smaller Dark Tan plates in a low-priced set. The newer-style trap door and frame appear for the first time in white; I was excited to see the R5 droid head in plain light bluish grey, but it also appeared in two Star Wars sets last year. The Figs Meet Tom and Barbara. Tom is not called that because he's ginger; he has a lopsided facial expression which could be a smirk, or sceptical, or indicative of some neurological condition. He sports an orange anorak first seen in 2011's CREATOR 5770 Lighthouse Island. Both torsos have back printing. Barbara has evil hair, and a nice blouse ... ... but it's the same as that of Olivia from the Car and Caravan set: Barbara, alone out of the foursome, seems at least to be a Happy Camper. Maybe that's because of all the fun that can be had with paddles. The life-jackets are the newer kind: narrower than their earlier counterparts but leaving a small but unsightly gap in the neck region. Both Tom and Barbara sit comfortably in the canoe, and there's room for more. The set comes with a spare oar, but no extra life-jackets, so if John and Olivia want to join them it'll be at their own risk. It's nice to see the couple rafting together, though I suspect the reality will be more like this. The Camper No build pictures for this simple set; just straight down to business! I was critical of the newish front end piece when it appeared in the 60017 Flatbed Truck; I'm still not 100% sold on it, but here, helped by the 1x2 curved slopes to either side, it does help to define the contours of the van's front end. I like the multiple appearances of ornage indicator lights, and the clicky-hinged wing mirrors look fab. The van's lines are for the most part clean and purposeful, helped by the unbroken stripes in green and dark tan: colours which are replicated on the stickers, so don't apply them if you want to modify the set with different colours. I'm not so keen on the white mudguards - they look a little odd next to the bluish grey of the camper base. You may notice a slight oddity in the construction: the front mudguards are mounted a plate higher than the rear. This isn't too obvious - I failed to notice myself until typing the review - but it does spoil the image a little. The rear mudguards sit lower in order to maintain the green stripe and provide a tile surface for the opening side - there isn't a way to avoid this without making the whole camper a plate taller. It might be possible to lower the front mudguards if this height difference bothers you, but this will result in the front bumper looking incongruously high. There are nice curves to the roof, brought about by the 4x6 car bonnet panel sitting flush with the larger roof piece in front, and the curve slopes to the rear. The back end is a little spartan - it could do with a ladder to the roof, or possibly a rear window. The blocky bley mass at the base here demonstrates the simple construction technique throughout; the cliff face of bley broken only by the sticker and the dark bluish grey plate edge at centre-bottom. This dark bley plate forms part of the chassis: If the dark bley bothers you, you might switch the two 2-wide plates over here; this will fix the dark bley spot at the rear, but might weaken the chassis. Features The cab has opening doors, as do most CITY vehicles these days; I recall a few years ago that AFOLs bemoaned the lack of doors - proof that The LEGO Group does listen to its fanbase. Barbara is driving, today. There is space atop a blue brick next the steering wheel for the obligatory coffee mug; in front of this, two grille tiles neaten the cab nicely, and might represent ventilation or heating. The cab can easily be reconfigured for right hand drive if you prefer. A high arch provides easy access to the rear of the camper ... ... and allows Tom to join Barbara in the cab, albeit sitting sideways. To allow access to the rear, the whole left side of the van opens: You can see here why the rear mudguard is lower - if it were a plate higher, it would prevent the side opening. The roof is also easily removed, allowing adult fingers to manipulate the figures with ease: Tom and Barbara have a decent-sized table, a large double bed, and the grille tile at the bed's foot could I suppose represent a stove - though there's no other cooking equipment. Unlike in the Caravan, this camper's bed sleeps two comfortably - though one of them has to sleep on their side. Note the stickered television screen on the wall - a similar feature to the Caravan, which was showing a scene related to one of its sister sets (the Dirt Bike Transporter). If 60057's television is meant to relate to another set, I can't tell which. The horizontal bars, which I presume are meant to represent static, look a little like scratches. Up on the roof, there's a handy compartment for storing the oars and life-jackets, or whatever camping paraphenalia you fancy. A minor criticism: unless the boat is attached to the roof, there is no way to secure the trap door; this means repeatedly having to pick the oars off the floor when you inevitably forget and turn the van upside down. The front section also has sizeable storage space, and here the lid is more firmly attached: So firmly that it can be tricky to open. There's not much to store in there, but I guess it depends what you want to use your camper for. The 2x2 jumper plate and the R5 head provide a little detail, but they are there to allow attachement of the canoe to the roof ... ... like this: There's a little ambiguity as to exactly how the boat should attach; it can sit a stud further back than this, or a half stud to either side, but I think this position looks best. The red of the canoe really sets of the colours of the van - now it looks really smart! Comparison to other camper vehicles Let's now see how this latest camper compares to the most recent CITY camper, 2009's 7639 Camper: The latest version is taller, with a more detailed, textured front end, and wing mirrors, and I prefer the trans-clear headlights; although the newish bonnet (hood) piece adds contour to the front, I do miss the SNOT grille tiles. The rake of the windscreen is shallower in the new set. The disadvantage of the addition of wing mirrors is a two plate-high step at the top of the windscreen, but this is a minor point. 60057 is considerably longer than 7639: a good four studs, bumper to bumper, though 7639 has a stud's overhang at the rear. I'd like to draw your attention here to the subtle but important difference between the two, and to which I alluded in my review of the Car and Caravan set: 60057 has a more sober livery, and a more realistic overall design; however it loses a chunk of the Classic Town cuteness that exudes from its immediate predecessor. Lacking from the rear of the new set is any means for Tom and Barbara to get onto the roof - the set is crying out for a ladder, but even a window would help to break the cliff-face monotony. I do like the round tiled lights. There really needs to be some detail on that bley boxy bottom. The 2009 Camper allowed both walls to open, giving easy access to the cosy interior; 2014's left wall opens completely, and the roof is removable. There's much more space in the new one, partly because the table has been pushed right to the front; if you want Tom and Barbara to share a romantic dinner, then you can reposition the blue driver's seat without tooo much difficulty. 7639's latching mechanism was fiddly - you have to unclip and reclip the rear lamp. 60057 has no latching mechanism at all, but it isn't necessary: the stiffness of the plate hinges means the door stays in position. 60057's living quarters share a lot in common with 2012's 4435 Caravan: the window/wall panel/small window configuration is identical, as is (or should be) the placement of a television on the inside of the white wall panel. The opening mechanism is similar, but simplified in the Camper Van, and the interior has been tidied up somewhat; I'm pleased that the Camper has trans-black windows rather than the Police-ish trans blue of the Caravan. I like to think that TLG listened to me here. Conclusion When I reviewed the 4435 Car & Caravan, I was in retrospect rather unfair to it. I complained about the sobriety of the colour scheme (of the caravan, at least), which, compared to the cute lime green and curvy 7639 camper, seemed rather too masculine. The likely explanation for this is the arrival of the Friends range necessitating a wider dichotomy from the principally boy-oriented CITY range; however, seeing this latest camper, I begin to see to logic. The result makes up for the loss of Classic Town cuteness with a huge dose of realism: 60057 looks like a LEGO version of a real camper. Whether this is the right direction to take is up for debate; however, if this is the designer's intent, I would say it has been a success. Of course there will be niggles: the colors and position of the mudguards are a little fussy; the rear bottom is too simplistic in its boxy bleyness; and there needs to be a ladder or something else at the rear - else how are Tom and Barbara ever going to get that canoe back on the roof? I can live with the mudguards, and if I find I can't live with the rear I will modify it. This is a lovely little set: smart and realistic, but fun for play. The only quandry is whether to choose this over the many other wonderful civilian vehicles now available. Design & Build 8 A realistic design and smart livery is achieved effortlessly despite the simple build. It could just do with a little something more at the rear. Parts 8 It's great to see the return of the kayak-style boat, even if its uses are somewhat limited. There's a number of useful parts in white, and the smaller dark tan plates are most welcome, even if there's only a few of them. Figures 7 Tom and Barbara's torsos are both nice, and though not unique they aren't so common. It's a shame that Barbara wears the same top as Olivia, because if you have the caravan, you're likely to want to show the two sets together. Playability 9 Plenty of storage compartments, and easy accessibility to the interior, give the set an edge over earlier camping-related sets. Other uses for the paddles I will leave to your imagination. Value 9 The expected inflation hike for this price point maintains the 10c per part guideline, though many of these parts are large and specialised. But you wouldn't buy this set for the parts alone: it's a great-looking vehicle, a fun play set, and a super addition to your LEGO town. Overall 82% My Score 9/10 The triumph of this set is the achievement of a very realistic-looking camper and a fun play set for a simple build. And it's just one of many great looking civilian sets new for 2014! Your dilemma should not be which to buy, but which to buy first. Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed the review.

    [MOC] camper trailer

    I was inspired by building the excellent Toyota FJ40 model designed by rm8 which can be found elswhere in this forum (at http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=103380). I developed a mod for the FJ40 to place the battery on the roof rack so that the interior is not too packed (and you can see the rear seats). Then I decided to build a camper trailer in the same colour scheme to go with it. This is what the whole thing looks like: The trailer has a parking wheel that is retracted when hitched to the FJ40 and lowered when stand alone. A removable pin structure holds it in either the retracted or lowered position. Picture of trailer standing alone with parking wheel lowered is : http://www.brickshel...y.cgi?i=6287054 The roof of the trailer sits on locating pins and can be removed. This is to allow further development into a working pop-top camper trailer. LDD for trailer is : http://www.brickshel...ailer_whole.lxf
  11. 7-wide Camper I managed to grab a discounted 60057 recently and having checked out Rufus's review http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=89850 I agree with some of the comments that the rear is too plain, and there's something wrong with the wheel arches (they lowered the rear one by one plate to accommodate the opening side. Furthermore as a 6-wide it just looked too narrow so over the last couple of days I started ripping it to pieces and making it a full 7-wide. I began my modding the rear. I added the bumpers, the ladder, the spare tire, the rear window onto the 7-wide frame. Then to the side I fixed the wheel arch problem (by removing them completely from the rear), added an opening door, and a rolled up awning to the roofline. I left the front of the vehicle as the original set and now we're ready for adventure in the great outdoors! Comments, criticism and ridicule most welcome! Edit: Antp asked in one of the comments about changing the windows to 2x2's. Here's that image
  12. Some days ago some pictures was showed in this forum, and now it time to show the complete MOC. This van officially called "Type 2", is one of the most famous van in the world. Very popular in the 60's and known as the "hippies car" There are many versions of the Type 2, this one is of the BUS version, known as "11 windows", it is very easy know why ;) The real one: It is made in scale 1:7.8. The total size is: 66 studs of length, only 27 wide and 30 of high (53x22x25 cm) A complete bodywork with openable front doors, right side double door, and rear trunk and bonnet. Also the doors have lock, you need turn the door handle to open it. Working steering wheel and brake pedal. Like the Beetle both mechanisms auto-connect when you place the bodywork on the chassis. And now the best part: Like the real Type 2, this MOC uses the same Type 1 platform of my previous Beetle (more info here) MANUAL chassis on the left, and RC chassis on the right. The Manual chassis is like you can imagine, 4+R speeds manual gearbox. To use the chassis in the Beetle or in the T1 you only need to change the shift lever Short fotr the Beetle and long for the T1. The RC chassis is the same as my Beetle, 4+N+R sequential gearbox, also has motors for drive, steering and brakes If yoy want to the RC chassis in action the best way is see the complete Beetle video Like the manual chassis you only need to change the speed indicator to use it in the Beetle or in the T1 Some pictures of the platform-brothers Finnaly as always a little video For more info visit my website.

  14. Inspired by droomangroups Unimog http://www.eurobrick...97705&hl=unimog I decided to build one myself, although my version is a bit large, so it's more like inspired by the real Unimogs. Let me present to you: Crazy Gretas "The Badass Explorer". For some reason I couldn't deep link the picture of the other side, so chek out my flickr (url at the bottom). The motorcycle clicks in place real easy and is also easy to pull out. Bed, toilet, kitchen, dining area, storage under the bed etc She's not pretty, she's badass. It took me about 5-6 hours to build. I looked at pictures on google and videos on youtube for reference. And of course droomangroup excellent Unimog camper There are some more pictures on my flickr https://flic.kr/p/oGbTUm

    MOC - Unimog Overland Camper

    This build started out with the little Arctic Ice Crawler (60033), although I think I changed it enough to call it an MOC instead of a MOD. I used the unimog as my inspiration but I wasn't out to make it look 100% like a unimog. Here we've got a sand ladder, a storage bay and a vent for the stove. I didn't go nuts with windows since this type of camper usually has minimal windows. In the back it's all business. two spares, a hi-lift jack, and a jerry can along with a removable step ladder. Here we have a "rolled up" awning and porch light. when it's time to camp the step ladder attaches to the side, and it's time to climb the inside. inside it's posh camper living of course (as long as you don't need a bathroom :) Thanks for checking it out, feel free to give any feedback or suggestions. cheers droo
  16. Hi everyone! I bought a 10220 Volswagen Camper Van some time ago. It's really an iconic car so I decided to try to recreate it in ("approximately") minifig-scale. I had a really hard time to recreate the rounded colour shift in the front. However I'm pretty happy with the result. Everything's attached, no loose pieces! After finishing it I thought - why not try to create it in a mini-scale too? (Thin technic liftarms in the middle of the construction attachs studs on both directions) The complete VW Camper family! (Which one is the cutest? ) And after that... I decided to create a hippie version too! Flower Power! Hope you like it!
