LEGO Volkswagen Van

This LEGO 1962 T1 Camper model will be available in October.

The characteristic flat-four air-cooled Volkswagen boxer engine is also squeezed in above the rear axle, exactly as in the original. Inside, care has been taken to reproduce an interior that is as close to the original as possible. There’s a sink unit, a bench that folds down into a bed, a folding dinette table and an opening cupboard with a mirror.

The model also embraces the counterculture with a hippie-inspired interior colour scheme, a lava lamp and a T-shirt in the window that says ‘Make LEGO models, not war’.

If I was a dad of a young kid, I’d buy this ostensibly for him or her, but in actuality it would be for me.
