In celebration of the VW camper van
The classic VW camper van has a cult status among surfers and other fans of the great outdoors the world over, so it came as no surprise when LEGO produced a highly detailed model of a red T1 camper van last year.
Since doing so it's captured the imagination of UK LEGO fans who have been building it in alternative colour schemes. For the first time, at GWLS, they will be displayed together. It's actually quite a challenge doing some of the colours because not all pieces are available in all colours, so piece substitutions need to be made, while ensuring the integrity of the model and design.
Nevetheless, there should be something like twelve vans on display, in blue, dark red, light blue, sand green, white, purple, yellow, black, orange, red, tan, and 'psychedelic' which should make for a impressive display.
