MUD BUG!!!

This is the first time I tried Heavy Weathering on a car, it was Great Fun!

Here are some of the photos of the finished MuD BuG!

The MuD BuG started with a Killer Bee, Deals Wheels Tires and Porsche 911 Parts. The Bug body was shortened 1/2 inch at 3 points in the Body for a full 1 1/2 inches in cuts!

You continue pulling these Cool Deals Wheels style builds out, they look excellent! I like the Muddy look, even if I'm not a fan of weathering. Excellent details all over too. These always bring a smile on my face, thank you for sharing these builds. Can't wait to see the Rocket Van finished. ;)
