VW Cabriolet

Recommended Posts

Just finished this up. This is the Skip's Fiesta kit. Not the greatest, but doesn't turn out bad. I used resin wheels from Fink's Garage and scratchbuilt the mirrors and bumpers. Comments and criticisms welcomed.

Awesome colour scheme! I did a Porsche 993 in the same colours a few years ago.

 

Yours is much better than the box art!

Looks great Tom! 

Can you flock the floorboards to match the seats?

Thanks guys! I appreciate it! It was a fun build. The kit wasn't difficult, just not a great kit.

I could have flocked them but I didn't want the interior to be too red.

Very nice build, not overdone, but something you'd possibly see at a VW bug meet....

I like the strong looking paint color and the finish. The interior looks very rich with the exterior color.

Thanks guys. I forgot that I have one more thing to do. I need to install some straight pin heads for the wheel lugs. I'll try to get that done this weekend.

I’d leave well enough alone! Wheels look great, adding pins may clutter them up

Thanks, but I need something to fill the holes. If it looks too busy I'll just paint the pinheads black.

That's a cool little V-Dub Tom! Colors are spot on! Wheels really sets it off! Makes me want to build one.

Thanks Fellas! I didn't think there would be this many who would like this build due to the quality of the kit I started with. Glad you guys like it.

I dig everything about it! Fantastic color combo. The wheels were certainly worth it. They cement the entire look.

Yes. I really liked the wheels. Got a few different sets from Fink's Garage. Nice stuff.
