Interesting VW


Both Schuco and Autocult make a 1/43rd version of the camper.

Very good!. Did you spot any windscreen wipers on the real one?
So only drive when it is dry weather
The models does have windscreen wipers

If you watch the short video again you will see the knobs that stick out of the front of the car, under the wind screen, that the wipers would be attached to so I assume you could put them on. Not sure if they did as it does not show actual wipers in the video. Edmonton does not get that much rain, not like BC does.
