    I've done that! I used artificial nails (women-stuff LOL!!!) The smallest ones had the exact shape. I just had to cut them down a litle to achieve the correct look!

    Thanks for all positives! The model has been finished and presented in the "under glass-section".

    About the drums, I hade themn in my parts-box. They could come from the AMT Manx buggy, but I'm not sure???

    The stinger is a bead-cone from Michael's Craft store. I scratchbuilt the exhust and collector from Evergreen rods and connected it to the stinger.

    Patrick, Randy's correct. This is a kitbash using Sangyo-Gunze's oval 1956 VW and the Baja-kit was pirated from a Kyosho Mini-Z RC-body, no longer in production. The Resin-body from Replica Minitures of Maryland is, I Think, a resin-copy of the Kyosho-body. It has the larger rear window of a VW 1958 and later.

    If You take a look in the Workbench-section there's a thread during Construction of my model.

    Thanks for the positives!

    This build is coming along GREAT!!! I really like the fact that You've kept the stock rear fenders to keep the Bug identity. About that chop, it's really well performed, but did You really chop as much as 6 mm? It sure doesn't seem that much by the pictures... Also, 6 mm is about 6 scale inches in 1/25 scale. Every millimeter is equivalent to an inch in full scale as one inch is 25,4 mm , divide that with 25 and You get 1,016 mm. Keep up that good work! I'm a big VW fan and I really like this build!

    OK, so the homemade decals could've been better, but they're good enough for a Little race-car I Think!

    AMC Gremlin 12 H build
    Hi all! I built this one during a 12h build-off on saturday. 16 modelers built one Gremlin each. I was the only one who built a Lowrider.

    Thanks George, I'll keep that in mind!

    That's true...at least by today's standard.... This is meant to be a 60's Baja, and as such I think those brake drums would be periodically correct?
