Cool. I have that kit and didn't realize it's full detail! I'll have to pull it out and give it a go.
Back when we lived in Germany, my father had a red mid 60s Beetle as our second family car. The funny part was that it was a US spec Beetle, that an American serviceman had bought in the US and shipped back to Germany when he got stationed there. Army officers are allowed to ship a car to Europe and back home again at the end of the tour. So we shipped our trusty '66 Valiant (this was the fall of '69).You had to wait a month or better for the car to arrive, so we grabbed up the Beetle upon our arrival and it was our only car for awhile.
Upon leaving Germany, the Valiant was shipped back home, so the Beetle was once again our only transport for the remainder of our stay. My father wanted to have it until the last day, so as a lot of folks did, he was just going to leave the Beetle at the BOQ with the title and keys to be given to some lucky inbound serviceman. It was expendable. He paid a few hundred for it three years earlier.
The last week we were there a guy approached me and asked directions. I asked him if he was new there, and then asked him if he wanted a car. I sold him the Beetle, to change hands on our last day, for $200. I was 14 at the time. My father was so impressed that he let me keep the money!
My father's office in Pirmasens, Germany. Our Beetle is to the right of the entrance. Dark colored with US spec rear bumper next to the '67 Chevy. The half car all the way to the left was the unit's '70 Ambassador staff car. The unit also had the Econoline van. The rest of the cars were owned by US servicemen. Some got shipped back to the US and others were abandoned there.
