Hey my friends, today I present you my first commissioned work. Built a VW T3 Tristar for a friend who wanna give it away as birthday present to his father who is driving the real one ;) It's built in the same scale as my Amarok. My friend got one of my Lego Amaroks because he owns a real one and that's the reason why he asked me to build the T3. Some details like the fog lamps are missing but I tried to get is as close as possible to the real T3. I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by, rating and commenting.
About this creation












After I finsihed the VW my friend asked me if I could add a trailer. That's the result. Designed a new trailer coupling. It's made with a Lego ratchet and some other parts which can be seen on the following pics. I was very surprised because it's working very good :)







Added new stickers. A bit bigger and better ;)

Thank you again very much for your like and your nice comment my friend. Got the numberplate there: http://www.kennzeichengenerator.com/germany.eu.php But it's in German language. You can choose several designs like Switzerland, Austria, Germany new/old + historical numberplates.

Hi Stephan, hab vielen vielen Dank für deinen tollen Kommentar! Freu ich mich riesig drüber! :) Bin mir wegen der Arbeiten in eurem Haus nicht sicher. Bisher hatten wir selber als Maler nix damit zu tun. Ja, wäre schön wenn wir uns dann sehen würden. Aber denke das macht ne Firma. Aber dennoch müssen wir mal nen Tag finden wo wir uns mal treffen können. Ist soooo lang her und absolut überfällig. Kannst mir ja mal ne Mail senden wo du reinschreibst wie du mal Zeit hättest. Möglichst Freitags oder so. Unter der Woche ist eigentlich immer schlecht. Liebe Grüße, Sven

One question my good friend Sven. Where Is the LEGO model in this post? I see pics of real T3's and no LEGO. LOL LOL. My friend you bring realism and accuracy of detail every time you step to the plate and crush one out of the park. BOAJDTAP.

Another like for that beast trailer. I can't even make a system so simple and elegant for a 10-wide creation. Oh, and where did you get that "realistic German numberplate" sticker from?

Nice work Sven. However, that license plate should be changed, otherwise he could get pulled over for an invalid registration. ;-)

Schön gebaut mein Freund, schön gebaut. Die Form ist eindeutig zu erkennen und sehr detalliert ergänzt. Warscheinlich sehen wir uns wenn die Türen in unseren Häusern fertig gestellt werden sollen. Dann soll ein Maler kommen, ich weiß nicht ob das einer der Genossenschaft ist oder nicht . Würde mich aber freuen. A super great job Sven.

Thank you so much for all your kind words my good friend Firas :) I'm really happy about that you like it so much. Btw, did you notice the trailer? Not sure if the pics were up while you wrote your comment. And yes, the flex tubes are really useful :) I learned it from my friend "the master of flex tubes" David Hensley.
  March 5, 2016
Very nice work my good friend! The usage of the flex tubes is very smart. I'm working on a car right now that depends so much on flex tubes, it's really amazing what those Tubes can do. Keep up the great work. A+

Thank you so much for your really kind comment my good friend Gabor :) Yes, I really like using the minifig hands and rigid hoses. They open up so many new possibilities. You can nearly do with them whatever you want ;) That's so cool. I asked my friend if he could take a picture of his dad's smiling when he got the model :D He will do. Many lovely greetings back to you from Julia and I :)

I am so proud to be the first to see this Sven, this is really nice! I am really impressed by all of the stuff that you have built, and this is no exception what so ever. This is a really nice rig from you, and it could even be built into some sort of fire truck if you tried.
