I LOVE these Hasegawa Type II's. Such great kits. I built my single cab straight out of the box with no paint, and thought it was great. But this? Sheesh! :D

Wow! This just moved onto my all time favorite models. I'm a sucker for the little details everywhere and knowing you scratch built it all is nothing short of amazing. I'm sure I'm not the only one who appreciates you giving up your secrets and letting us know how you make all those beautiful details. I bookmarked this page and hopefully I'll be able to put your methods to use. I was hoping you could reveal how you did that great looking sliding ragtop? Again, excellent craftsmanship, I would love to see a buildup page.

Well, there's actually nothing special. First I opened the hood and used polystyrene to fix the hole. The ragtop itself is a piece of fabric. I just cutted piece of it, then I folded sides. I used iron to get those sharp edges. After that I folded it to "open". I used again iron to press it flat. I also added some glue to it so it stays in that form.

Unfortunately there is no actual build up topic.

Wow, that does sound pretty easy. A lot easier then I would of thought. I wanted to do it to my 32 but wasn't sure exactly how I was going to go about it. Thanks for all the information, I can't wait to try it out. I was thinking of making mine open and close, did you glue it or is it working?

Surf boards aren't scratched but I don't know which kit includes these. Still I did design the graphics to boards by myself. I printed those graphics to decal film.

Outstanding VW! All these details rocks.

With... bare metal foil! After I laid down the foil, I sanded it with fine paper. After that I washed it with very very very thin black. It "turns the shine off nicely. I think it's more realistic that way.

<- that was my question, how you did it. P-e-r-f-e-c-t!
