NEWS: Cursa Models VW Transporter

 Cursa Models VW Transporter
CWM003 and CWM004 - T1 Vasek Polak Team

The recent loss of Revell to our fine hobby makes you appreciate even more the unique slot enterprises that bring depth to our hobby, Cursa Models is such a company.  Cursa Models is a Sabadell (Barcelona) company dedicated to the development and reproduction of cars in slot on 1/32 and 1/24 scales and founded in 2004 by Mr. Juanjo Moya.

Cursa Models have recently released the VW Transporter and trailer, something that would look amazing on any slot car layout.  The new model is available as a fully painted and assembled model or as a white kit.

From Cursa Models: 'We are pleased to introduce our new 1/32 scale slot project, completely made by Cursamodels in a traditional way, as we are doing since more than 20 years ago, working with maximum quality and flexibility polyurethane materials.

It's the VW Transporter T1, which began to take shape in Wolkbourg over 50 years ago and has since been taken popularly various denominations: VW Bully , Samba,.., its also the surfer's van, but maybe the best known is that of the 60's hippies van. It was a very versatile model, which were menufactured basically in 4 types of bodywork: panel, pick-up, double cabin pick-up and finally the kombi, which is the one that we start the series.

We have chosen the Vasek Polak's team van, Porsche importer in the US in 60's, used to assist racing cars as well as used as a tractor trailer, carrying the Spider SRS racing Porsches.

Soon we will have the trailer ready for sale to complete the set, with and easy screw you can join the trailer to the van.

Sure thing, head on over to Cursa Models webpage, (there is a link on my Links page). From the Cursa Models page select 'Dealers' to access their ebay store which makes purchasing Cursa Models items pretty easy (assuming you don't mind dealing on ebay). Enjoy.
