As a lifelong fan of VW Beetles I'm glad I kept spare parts like gearstick, pedals, wheels/tyres, rear and front lights to add to this build. The alloy mesh grilles were made from a 1970's car bodywork patch-up kit.

I couldn't decide whether to go round the panel gaps with a fine graph pen. Since I took the pictures I've gone over the rear rubber bonnet tie downs with a black sharpie.


Fujimi TRD Altezza Super Street SXE10

I bought this curbside kit about 12 months ago, so whilst waiting for paint to cure on another project, I started this on Thursday and finished it today.

The decals are quite thick so getting them to conform to the surface has been difficult..............

Revell Gran Turismo

To continue with my aircooled engined builds, I've just finished this kit. Similar to the Meyers Manx kits I build this has no roof on the beach buggy theme

The kit is moulded in blue (I have rattle can sprayed the shell with Plasti-Kote Metallic Blue) plus a sprue of clear and another of chrome. The kit comes with two engines, the VW 1800cc and the Chevy Corvair, so being a Beetle fan I have built the VW engine although it is not particularly well made and has little detail............

It was easy kit to build although the body comes in six parts and the only slightly difficult area is having the attached the bottom of the door sills when the top half is on the chassis........

I have added my signature tailpipe by using small plastic pipe with a slash cut piece of alloy tube fitted over it see third photo down.
