Well I started this a little bit ago but never posted it. This is my first big scale kit ever and so far I'm liking it. I couldn't leave it stock so I found some tires, modified the suspension and this is where it sits now.

The rear wheels I increased the diameter because they were too small for the lips. They need a little more work but they fit alot better.

and what I'm thinking for colors. Off white for the wheels and sides of the car, and rootbeer for the rest of the body.

How well is this kit going together so far? I'm planning to get one to build a replica of my friend's '52 and am hoping that it goes together as well as the Tamiya Beetle.

Thanks guys, it's the revell of Germany kit.

So far it's going together pretty good. The doors take a bit of work to align properly but I think I got them adjusted correctly.

Well, Thought I'd step outside the truck model box, and see what you guys have to offer! BUGS!!!!! I am obsessed with them! I built this one in Germany in 95. It fits together very well!! The drop is awesome looking and those colors will look cool!!! You gonna de chrome it? or keep the chrome trim!?

I am a huge VW fan, so I am looking forward to seeing what you do with this kit. What kit are you sarting with? I have tons of 1/24th an 1/25th scale kits and one 1/20th scale, and also some 1/35th scale, but none this big. And I love that it is a split! Nice panscrapper stance as well.

He's using the Revell of Germany 1/16 VW Beetle, I think they just rereleased it so it's easy to find.
