Is this based on a Japanese kit?

Interior side pane. Check out the seat belts. Not hanging from B pillar, but A for effort.

That's for the convertible. That's where they should be.

I have the sedan kit, anyone know what clear parts 144, 152,135,and 129 are? The look like police bubble lights.

Yes, those are lights for the roof, a police version will be on the cards very soon

Lee- not only are there unused dome flasher lenses, but check out the inside of the roof- it's full of flashed-over holes, which are covered by the separate headliner. Expect more from this tooling. (Note that last sentence is little more than an educated guess on my part. :D )

 

I'm finally getting around to working on this kit, and I will say my one big disappointment is the tires. Not just the blank sidewalls, but the ones in my kit are really poorly molded. BUT- I robbed some of the old skinnny, hollow Firestones from AMT (they're in the Bill Jenkins Grumpy Toy '66 Nova and most versions of the '49 Merc among others), and they fit the kit wheels pretty well. If you have a set of these, notice that one bead is a bit thicker than the other- slip the tires over the wheels with the thicker bead facing out, so the outward-facing part of the wheel will fit nice and flush with the bead of the tire. The AMT Firestones are a very nice alternative to the kit tires.

My Dad had a '68 Beetle, so seeing the parts in the sedan is disappointing. To recreate his car, I'd need the sedan, the convertible and maybe Tamiya's '66 sedan. But the bumpers and tail lights in the '70 are a must.

The box art for the cabrio shows a Super Beetle, is that what's really in the box?

 

Has there ever been a Super kitted? The Aoshima 1303s Beetle has a Super on the box as well, but I understand its not a Super either?  :huh:
