1963 Cal Look VW - from Polar Lights snap kit

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I built this Polar Lights - not - so - great - snap kit as a mild California looker.

Paint: Tamiya

Tyres: AMT

Must fix that panel line in front of the windshield someday.

Here you go with those pics:

I have a feeling you like the VW Beetle!  That a '66 like the Tamiya kit?  The windshield looks smaller like an earlier year, but other windows are larger.  Kit didn't have hood and lid latch handles?  Kit have the engine?  Sorry for all the questions, I'm just in the middle of a Bug project.

Very cool! I remember seeing a lot of these running around back in the day, and you captured the look perfectly. Well done and model on! B)

I have built the Polar Lights Herbie kit. That kit is supposed to represent a 1963 bug. The kit does have hood & deck lid handles. Also has an engine.

Great looking Type 1. I like the style of your build. Having the running boards at the folding top colors match really catches your eye.
