The Volkswagen Transporter is a forward control panel van introduced in 1950 initially deriving from the Type 1 (Beetle). It paved the way for modern cargo and passenger vans with its generous space and seating. Most commonly known as the “Hippie Van”, it was commonly modified and used for long ventures with multiple people, an ambulance model was even created in 1951. The Transporter evolved over time but the first model remains a classic and a cornerstone in cargo and passenger vans.
Being a 1:8 scale replica, the VW Camper Van model kit is a highly detailed representation of the luxury deemed model of the Volkswagen Transporter. The model is true to the original samba, featuring a fabric sunroof, two pivot doors which were iconic to the Samba, and eight panoramic windows in the roof.
