Sun Star 1962 Volkswagen Samba “Wedding Version”
1:12 | Price TBD
Here’s an interesting themed model from Sun Star. Collectors of 1:12 models probably know that
Sun Star has done a number of themed vehicles in its VW line—and that includes several versions of the Samba bus. The latest one is the Wedding Bus. It’s a white 1962 model with a matching white roof—a so-called “23-window” because, with the split windscreen and eight roof skylights, it has 23 separate pieces of glass. In addition to the standard details on the model—and there are many thanks to the retracting cloth top, opening front, side and rear doors, and detailed engine and chassis—the exterior and interior of the bus have been dressed up with flowers and streamers at the door handles, nose, rear window, and several other places. There are also an additional garland of roses and a molded scale bouquet as accessories. We’re curious to see how big the market is for a theme vehicle like this, but there’s no doubt that it is a first-class replica in impressively large scale with tons of functional features.
