Yes, it does! Which makes it a much more realistic model than it would have been without them.

Very nicely done. Not just the mirrors, the whole thing! B)

Pretty fancy paint for a VW :lol: ! Very nice clean build. I used to see these everywhere back in the day, now nowhere outside of a car show.

That's really nice, I want to do one of these one day. I always thought the Tamiya kit was curbside though?

Very nice and "KILLER". That color just pops and sure makes it stand out. That super smooth clear doesn't hurt either. Very nicely
done and super clean....I want one.....
