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.
