Ausgezeichnet!  Fun concept.  It needs a Spandau machine gun on the drivers side to balance the swamp cooler though.

Another great build Jarkko. I'm always impressed with your work. And your concepts.

Erik Smith brought up the idea of the Baron cruising around with a surf board on the rack. But, wasn't sure were the Baron could surf? Wasn't he born and raised not far from the Batic Sea? I've never been there. Being that Finland is close by, I'm guessing you may have Jarkko. How are the waves on the Baltic? I think the Baron needs a surf board to go with his Beetle.

By the way, I love swamp cooler in the passenger's window with the Germany sticker on the rear. A perfect 1950's accessory. Does anybody make these for model cars? Or does one have to scratch build one?

I dig it all especially the sunvisor looks like it was made from the rear vents of a vdub

Thanks guys. Swamp cooler is casted in resin by Modelhaus. Sun visor is real thin aluminium sheet that I did dig from a pile of junk electronic devices many years ago. It already had those open louvers on it.
Maybe it has made for a cooling unit of somekind.
And yes, you can surf in the vawes of Baltic sea....
