1966 Karmann Ghia...

Hi everyone,

It's been a long time since I have posted anything or built anything, this model was actually completed towards the end of last year.

Following this build I had an extended break from building, and models in general, but I am back at it again.

This is the Tamiya kit from a few years ago.

Essentially box stock, but with mini tubs and Pegasus wheels, wired engine, solder exhausts and a tail pipe.

The colour is airbrushed Testors Bright Aqua Pearl, with a 2K clear.

It took a lot of polishing to get this paint job right, hence the reason I had a break. I now have a new airbrush which seems to have fixed all my airbrushing problems.

Thanks for looking, any comments are appreciated.

Your extra efforts on paint really paid off, that is a great looking model. The Ghia had a sharp looking body but it's too bad that the drivetrain underneath was pure underpowered Bug.
