Micro Models various variations of the VW Kombi.  Some of these photos appear elsewhere but shown together allows a good comparison of the different models.  They all started life as a VW Van like the one in the "Things go better with Coke" Coca Cola photo.

Another VW Kombi with the roof and window removed behind the driver door. A Micro Models drinks tray has been united with the cab to make a very believable drinks truck. I guess having done one similar in Carlsberg livery I wondered why it was not a german beer company so Lowenbrau seemed appropriate

This model is a creation based on a vehicle that ran around in the Shitbox rally in Australia. The real version or versions were not exactly the same but the owner described what he wanted the model to look like. The bulbar and spare on the front was a first for me. Built to order.
