So I had a flood in my basement where my hooby roon is and all of my partworks ended up underwater. It has taken me weeks to get everything dried off. There were literally hundreds of little plastic bags floating around the basement.By some miracle I only lost a few parts.So I built the Samba van.I am waiting on a couple of parts, but here is the result. It went together very nicely and is a very impressive model.
