Revell Germany 1/24 scale Volkswagen T1 "Samba Bus"

It might be hard to find a more quintessentially ‘60s vehicle than the VW microbus. Revell Germany’s kit captures it well.

Revisiting a vintage subject with new tooling, Revell Germany presents a Volkswagen T1 23-window “Samba Bus” (the name given to the deluxe-trim 23-window van with the large, folding canvas sunroof). It’s much more comprehensive than either the 1950s vintage Revell 1/25 scale 21-window van or the more recent curbside Hasegawa 23-window van.
