The Volkswagen Golf GTi Mk1 first went on sale in Germany in June 1976 and was only available as a 3-door version. Although the Golf was meant to be a small, fuel-efficient car model, a group of VW engineers worked on the sport version in their spare time. To many, the Golf GTi Mk1 is the boy racer’s car of the 1980’s and Joe Perez has captured its distinctive form in LEGO.
The Volkswagen Westfalia camper van is one of the best known of the VW vehicles — especially amongst LEGO fans following the release of 10220 VW T1 Camper Van. The next van was logically named the Type 2, and within the variants was one particular model known as the DOKA or doppel kabine. Jonathan Elliott has built a great looking LEGO version of the DOKA — a flatbed truck with an extended cab and two rows of seats. The use of the 1×1 printed VW tile from 10252 VW Beetle is a nice touch and the minifigure heads as wheel rims really look the part at this scale.
One variant down, several more to go Jonathan… Can we have have a Type 2 Kombi next please?
