Hi Folks,
This one was sitting on my bench for a long time, finally have it finished. The color is Glasurit L456 ruby red ( original vw color ). 2 coats of standox automotive paint was shot, wet sanded and polished. Box stock except for resin fuchs wheels and US bumpers. I hope you like it.

Very nice build. Looks perfect to me. ls this kit similar to Revell's T-1 Samba, & if so, was it hard to lower? Bart.
