Tamiya 1/24 VW Beetle 'Rustbug'

Recommended Posts

Just finished this excellent little kit that was a joy to build (unlike some!). Will be part of a scrapyard diorama eventually so done fully rusted out and abandoned using MIG Ammo rust acrylics set, AK Interactive crusted rust enamels, Pebeo turqoise acrylic artists paint and a little oils to finish.

wow, that looks amazing! I love the moss growing on the window rubbers and down the door gaps, real attention to detail there,?

on a Diorama it will be working fine. well made Matt.

for a next rusted car with holes you can thin out the plastic from the inside to make it a Little bit more realistic. 

if i make such rusty work, i Research the Internet for examples, to have an eye where the typical rust is on the car ?

Hi Dominik,

I did thin the plastic, but it was the first time I had done that with a dremel tool so was probably a bit too careful with it. :)
