Well well, it´s time to reveal pics of this previously highly classified vehiche which is rumoured to have been Red Barons personal transportation  during ww.. vw..

 

OK, let´s cut the bs.

 

Here is my imaginary vision of one srange bug.

Gunze kit with custom paint, lowered stance, modelhaus swamp cooler, aluminium spun hubcaps and some scratchbuild and PE parts.

I like that.  Cool concept and execution.  I like the wheels - the slight set back on the discs really set them off well.  Really cool roof rack, too.  The Baron could slide his surf board up there and head to the, uh, well, drive around with a surf board.

 

Nice work.

Cooler than the other side of the pillow...

 

 

 

The weathered wood on the top rack is a nice touch.
