Der Beetle Bus Issue, Manufacturing Fault?

Recommended Posts

Hi All, I’ve been working on a Beetle Bus and was test fitting the front suspension parts and realized the spindle for one of the wheels isn’t there. It’s been chromed over, so it’s been manufactured this way.

Should I just fix it myself and move on, or is Round 2 worth contacting? I’m in Australia, and I suspect I should just fix it.

Thanks Mr Mopar, I figured I can fix it, it’s just a bit frustrating buying a new kit and having this happen. But I acknowledge it’s a first world problem 😬 you’re right, I’ll just fix it.

Fix it in a few minutes, or wait weeks for a replacement? I think that is an easy decision to make.

 

I have a Red Baron that is a short shot and missing a headlight, it's a good thing I grafted an airplane fuselage onto the front of it.

Your kit part was damaged. Mine had a correct front axle.
I can send you this one, if you like. However, I did strip the plating off of it. Just contact me and I could mail it to you.

That’s very generous of you Jon, but then you won’t have one. I was going to strip mine when I try to fix it.
