Comment on this model.

The Volkswagen Crafter is a larger utility van and this model of it is in the panel variant.  Fully loaded it weighs up to 5 tonnes.

This version of the model is in the colours of Kibag, a Swiss construction company.


The box is in typical WSI-style branding and inside the model is held inside an expanded polystyrene tray with a clear plastic lid. 

There were no missing parts or defects on the review model.

There is no information provided about the real van or model. 


The floor pan is detailed with the exhaust and spare wheel holder highlighted.  Treaded tyres are mounted on small detailed wheels.

At the front the lights have lenses and the VW logo is excellent.  There are no number plates however.  There are wipers and good door mirrors (with indicators) around the cab and the inside detail is very good.

The body is metal with panels and doors detailed within the casting.  The Kibag livery looks good and the graphics are sharp with the careful use of paint highlighting other details.  The rear window panels are painted so a view inside the van is not possible.


The steering is notched with a reasonable range of movement. 

Both the front and rear axles have sprung suspension which works well.


This is a solidly made model with a high metal content.

The paint finish is very good with high quality graphics.


The model is fully priced noting it is a limited edition.


WSI has produced a good quality van model and it is ideal to pose with other models in the same livery.


The model first appeared in September 2013.

Steering angle is reasonable.
Profile view.
Blacked-out rear windows.
Ready for business.
A busy Kibag site with 20ft container.
