Review: LEGO 10220 Volkswagen Camper Van (part 2)

Continued from Part 1

My completed right-hand drive camper van! The iconic front is instantly recognizable. I'm not sure if the gas cap and exhaust are mirrored, or on the same side as the left-hand drive versions. Any experts can advise?

Opening doors with handles, safari windows and rising roof with cloth cover. Oh myyyy!!

Rear of the camper van showing the engine bay and interior. The surfing poster can be seen hanging on the interior wall. One minor complaint - the wing mirror could be better. Will definitely mod this soon.

The dashboard includes speedometer, odometer, handle for wiper or turn signal, and... I think that's a radio?

The curtain pieces add a nice touch to the windows.

Roof comes of to reveal the awesomely detailed interior. The wall-mounted lights and curtains lends a cosy feel. Even has a lava lamp!

Scale-wise, this is obviously too big for Lego minifigs. I say it is closest to 3 3/4-inch figures scale. Here my Nendoroid Hatsune Miku poses with it for size comparison.

- Nice display piece! Automobile lovers, especially VW fans, will like this.
- Vehicle details like the engine, driver panel, gearshift and pedals.

- Enjoyable build. Bright colour parts and very little repetition.
- Have I mentioned how awesome the interior is?

- As mentioned,
the wing mirror could have been better.
- Comes with stickers. Although not many, it'd be nice if they were printed on instead.
- Another nice feature to have would be steerable wheels.

This set is a good example of how simple Lego bricks can be used to create a realistic-looking model. Not only is it a nice display piece, the detailed interior also contributes to its play value. Highly recommended!
