had an extra kyote dune buggy and had some extra paint so I decided to make a roll around for it to sit in the pick up bed.
thanks for looking.

Very cool roll around! I really like your work, even if bugs aren't my thing.

Beautiful work, Bill. I love the old bugs and buses in any form. I have a 23-window started. Are these the Hasegawa kits, also?

Thanks for the kind words.


Randy--i forget which 23 window kit this came from--hasegawa or revell--but they are pretty much identical. I think the revell came with different mirrors (elephant ears). The revell was also much cheaper, I hope they reissue that run again. How are you building your 23 window?

thanks ratrodder.
it's a MPC Kyote dune buggy, or what's left of one. It was a glue bomb kit that i have decided to just leave as a body at this time because 95% of the parts were missing or unusable.

Here is the box top/write up from Dave's show rod rally website:

Nice work like the ride height and the choice of colors.
