This is my Karmann made from the Gunze kit. The roofrack is scratchbuilt:

My wish has been granted! :lol:

Very nice work!

What is the roof rack made of? I need to try that technique on a future wagon buildup.....:twisted:

The roofrack is made of copperwire which I soldered together. I build this one some years ago, I donĀ“t know if I could make it that nice again... :oops:
The wooden parts are just styrene stripes.

Thats pretty cool...the Ghia has just enough paint fade and minor grime to show it sat at the beach and be believable ...nice

The weathering makes this model! Gives it so much character to go along with the modifications and diorama. Nice work 8)

Perfect! You captured the look without going over board (which is so easy to do).
