Put a tiger in your tank!* - Part 1
About this creation


This VW Type 2 T1 “canvas” pick-up is the LEGO replica of a real T1 registered in 1956 in The Netherlands.
It was used by the M.v. Noord, a little company based in Amstelveen (close to Amsterdam) that sold and delivered petroleum for domestic heating.
The great nephew of the first owner, Mr. Pieter Grabijn, found it in a barn few years ago. It was totally rusty. He restored the red pick up entirely and now the machine looks really appealing.



This LEGO T1 is based on my previous Road Service T1 but with a different livery.
Canvas stitching technique is the same I've used before but this T1 has both the right side and the back side of the canvas rolled up.
The tarpaulin is also a little bit lower. Ready to be delivered petroleum jerry cans are located on the load compartment. The license plate is an old Dutch one: PV 88 17.
The writing on the load compartment sides means "Esso petroleum for your domestic heating" (It's written in Dutch).



Below the real T1, pictured at the circuit of Zandvoort (The Netherlands), compared to the LEGO T1.


This MOC is the first part of a bigger one, stay tuned...
Thanks for your attention.
All the best and happy building!

I hadn't realised that this gorgeous vehicle had yet to make an appearance on MOCpages. Great to see it here. I love the way that you've done the lacing on the grey canvas top.

Amazingly accurate. But the cover in the back looks higher than the one in the picture.
