  1. Hello Guys! First of all: please excuse for my bad English! Finally can I post a assembly that ran in secret over a few months! So, I stopped with other projects that were in line and only dedicated myself exclusively to this Beetle. Follows a small descriptive of the event so that everyone understands the rules and project development: All modellers will mount the same kit and a single assembly line: of the box (OOB). The kit was the Beetle from Tamiya and small exceptions were released – wheels and suspension could be changed, only wiring the motor and detail the belts inside the car. Nothing else would be allowed. But the most interesting rule was not to be allowed to publish photos during the assembling. So ... Let's go to my project for this Event: 1966 Volkswagen Beetle 1300 Tamiya with Codename: Low 'N' Ru5t Bug! My great desire would be to make a very low car. Here in Brazil calls: "Socadaço"! You should take some very drastic measures in order to stay consistent with the vehicle 1: 1. One is the negative camber on the rear wheels, so I removed material of the rubber tires (which was wide) so akin to what happens in reality, the car adopt a really aggressive look and to sticking to the ground. As if the tire was "deformed" by car's weight. Other changes are required: inverted axle shafts for the curvature was thrown "up", cleaned injection marks and other imperfections in the plastic parts. A few more "views" from the suspension ... And here, a general view... After this work was big and exhausting, I came to something more light ... I tried to leave the front seats with a more accurate face as in real Beetles. I do not like license plates on my car, so I tried to close all the holes... That's all guys... Big hug!
