Revell 1/32 VW Buggy

Recommended Posts

This simple snap-together kit caught my eye in a model shop when I was on holiday in the summer. Built out of the box apart from felt 'carpet'. The paint is Plasti-Kote metalflake, the base is made from a piece of vinyl floor tile covered with builder's sand.

Very very cool! Never seen that Rustoleum metalflake green before, but I have a big can of a Krylon metalflake green that looks very similar and I'm itching to squirt it on some kind of dune buggy. Well done and model on!

Cool little kit. Bears a resemblance to AMT's Meyers Manx. How small is it?

It's about 4 3/4" long overall. According to the decals it's an Empi Imp, but the packaging just calls it a 'VW Buggy'. I'm not sure about the engine... Corvair maybe?
