Your weathering looks awesome. Like this.
But the interieur looks "new" - to the body, you know what i mean?


I understand what you are saying. I wanted to model the interior as well used, but not exposed to the elements as the full up top was included. Had it not been included, the interior would have definitely been made nearly non existent due to being exposed to the elements.

Looks ugly. Neatly done, but ugly.
 
As an owner of many a beetle, and more than a few BEAT-les, you need to almost completely remove the floor pan underneath the rear passenger seat, where the battery is. Trust me- that's the first place to go.
 
I'll re-iterate. Poor beetle...

You know Dale, I googled for over a week trying to find good photos of exactly where the floor rots the most on these, but all I kept finding were pictures of rot under the seats,or a complete floor replacement in progress. Thank you for telling me about the battery area as I was completely unaware. I did have a friend mention that to me awhile back but did not mention where exactly the battery location was. I am not knowledgeable on VW beetles in the slightest

What Technique did you use for the rust? Looks really to scale.


To replicate the rust I used Sophisticated Finishes instant rust and instant iron solutions.
