Does anyone make the half moon hub caps that VW used up to 1965? Tamiya's 1966 Beetle has the '66 and newer hub caps.

I don't know of any resin or aftermarket sources, but the recently-issued Revell Spiderman VW Beetle kit  has a beautifrul set of those caps, along with the proper wheels ~ ~ ~ and a set of smooth baby moon caps ~ ~ ~ plus two sets of mags! 

 

You probably wouldn't pay much less for 4 resin caps than you'll pay for the entire Spiderman kit.

Gunze/Mr Hobby Beetle (1956 oval) has those hub caps. Also Hasegawa Type 2 panel van and pickup kits have similar hub caps.
