These two models are part of Lego’s Large Scale Model series, vehicle sub-theme.
Lego Volkswagen Van
I was initially blase about this set, based solely on a couple of images of the outside of the camper van and my impression of the previous set which didn’t inspire me (and I even own a blue VW beetle!).
But when I saw the level of detail inside this latest release, I knew that Lego had taken their Vehicle theme to a new level.
The design of the inside of the van took my breath away- a bed, table, lamp, painting, tiled (vinyl?) floor, curtains, drawers, shelves – It is unbelievable how much detail the designers fit inside while maintaining the integrity of the model and the detail outside!
The Lego Volkswagen Van must be in the running for Lego set of the year!
