G'day guys. Here is my spin on the Tamiya 1966 Beetle. I've built it box stock except for a lowered stance, deletion of the fender mounted turn signals  and custom two tone. I also added ignition wires. I hope you like. All feedback is welcome. 

Cheers, David. 😎👍20221218_134025.thumb.jpg.12754abd2d1e80752f6befaace1759a6.jpg20221218_134047.thumb.jpg.b5bfc4d2095cea143953e1d5eebe5e97.jpg20221218_134114.thumb.jpg.06917d55df8ab7a435c82be91633a348.jpg20221218_134250.thumb.jpg.fe8527b29f244e04ecc4ab8014e16670.jpg20221218_134343.thumb.jpg.83b3a6ee72e658aea8b351d9406881b0.jpg20221218_134452.thumb.jpg.2d6bfd4e0984bfb3e8d55afb1dd96322.jpg20221218_134523.thumb.jpg.3fb324f34d3f76abb83643af65dcaff1.jpg20221218_134531.thumb.jpg.4cb911f66ef3b6912945247db285b64b.jpg20221218_134552.thumb.jpg.8ec06a25dee44055a695415742bf5710.jpg

very cool to see it with the aussie chrome trim, or flash panel as some call it. I'm sure i read somewhere it was one of the parts made in australia to help it qualify for aussie manufactured status. you guys got some really weird vws we didn't get in the rest of the world (eg. country wagon and truck)

Thanks Les, I wasn't sure if the flash panel was Aussie but had my suspicions as I've only ever seen it here in Australia. As for the wagon and truck, I don't recall seeing any on the road growing up in the 60s and 70s. 

Cheers, David. 😎👍

Looks good black and lowered - a mean machine - did you use Fujimi's Porsche 356 wheels?

G'day Helmut, the wheels and tyres are box stock. I chromed them with a Molotow chrome pen and deleted the hub caps.

Cheers, David. 😎👍
