Another fun Tom Daniel model kit. A reasonably easy build. I left the body, other than the seats, unpainted. Painting everything else. The one thing I do not like on this kit are the decals, reading “Li’l Van” for the “C” pillars. So I left those off. All in all, I think it turned out fairly well.

That's a very clean looking build.

Leaving the body in bare plastic is a good idea, A real buggy would have been gell coat fiberglass finished I think, so your method replicates real life practice.

Neat. This kit is a variant of the Monogram Sand Crab buggy. I had both many years ago. The Sand Crab was a Hot Wheel too.

I like the Sand Crab variation better. But it’s a little harder to find.
