Discussion in 'Kombi Spotting' started by Alpal, Nov 21, 2007.
Ok so I’ve Been working on it - bought some figures / well actually Star Wars figures from the reject shop. Had to do some minor adjustments (with a hack saw) to get them to fit ( sorry Stars wars fans ) here goes ....
I've bought a set of DeLorean time machines (1 : 24), but not a blue Bay Kombi - where did you get it?
I also managed to get a Back to The Future II DeLorean at 1:18, that may be easier to find a Kombi for.
Ok as for the kombi - it is a 1/18th schuco only available from Germany on e bay - will set you back about $250 au but fullly operational ie all doors open - alternative 1/18 or 1/24 greenlight brand in white over blue $118 or $55 respectively but no doors open - but both are T2a ie lowlights the film version was a T2a highlight .
Ps in the picture I stuck some temporary black paper to give the illusion of a sun roof - the Gunner is cut at the torso
Someone here is to blame for this.
My collection of toy Kombis is growing.
But what to do with them / how to display them?
Don't want to do the leave them in the unmarked original box thing.
Decided I would build display shelves for each scale, with some basic scenery.
Then I discovered you can get scale models of other things.
And 1: 72 is close to OO scale or HO scale railway stuff.
Bought a couple of model trams, plans firming for the first display as a 1970's maybe street / beach scape.
So I would need some tracks for the trams.....
That arrived yesterday.
Just playing around on my bench, made a back drop out of a photo of a bit of sea wall cropped and copied, another photo of water and sky.
Didn't spend a lot of time on it, I can do better with some purpose taken photos I think.
Started to arrange things.
I'm giving myself a "not bad" for a first attempt.
Got a bit more stuff on order, will decide on my shelf size and location, re do my background.
I think I'm hooked.....
Just be sure the model funding, doesn’t interfere with the kombi maintenance / improvement funds.....
Well thought out Nozza
