>I also had an old Beetle kit with the same rims and tyres

 

maybe that was the revell 356 kit then? because I don't think the fujimi wheels, which are minor masterpieces in and of themselves, were ever available anywhere else. I could well be wrong, could you show a pic of the beetle kit with those rims please? would be interested in knowing otherwise.

thing is, like I pointed out, these kits regularly are available in the 100 - 120 dollar range and often cheaper. that's why I wouldn't pay much more than the current bid for them...and they are going to go up before the auction ends, thats my guess.

just went back and reviewed this auction...while the price is still pretty fair, that 50$ shipping charge, even from Switzerland, seems a bit rich. maybe not, but it does raise the price into a sort of not acceptable range in my mind. still, I suppose, considering the current market for those kits, not a terribly bad deal, one could maybe sell off two for the current price and keep one for free...maybe.

 

last one I bought was complete but all bags open and the box torn up, but I only paid about 60 USD for it, that was the mooneyes dragster one, pretty fair price I thought.

always like to see this sort of thing built up, but one question: is it a trick of the photography or is the body really that rough, especially in the back? I have this Flintstone body but don't recall it being like that. but I also haven't painted or primed it or anything and that's typically when those nasty surprises jump out at you.

 

fujimi 356 wheels and tires?
