The model club I belong has a group building that will end next Sunday a the meeting. The theme is WV... It started last year, I had an idea in my mind, but other project toke over, and probably now I will start the real build... :)

So I was thinking to use this body, left over from another project...

The kit it came was the Revell Convertible bug, I bought it in a lot, and it was already painted. :( I use all the parts for build the Wrought Iron Bug, and now I want build something with the body...

You can do it! Not as bad as the 3 day ones I've seen on here. Also I think I remember a 24 hr. build. Keep us posted in your spare time! :lol:

Depend also what you are building... :) I built one in 3 days, but was pretty much stock.

This week end I had to work on a 1/1 car... But I was able to put the body on a bucket with some cleaning stuff for remove the color. It make harder now to complete it for next Sunday, but will see how it goes... :) If I can finish it good, if not I'm fine too... :)

Here some small progress...

I cut the body... :D I need to use some putty on the front end, the molding is not very good, plus I made some holes in the back of the fenders for reference when I was building the other VW.

I don't have a chassis so I need to build one...

Here the start.

Good luck. Those Revell Beetles have massive cast lines, and lots of flash.

Thanks! Agree, not worth to buy it, you'll spend more time to clean all the the time to build it. :D

looks cool, but I wouldn't want to drive it on a very windy day. Rock and roll.

:D Me either. I had a few experience with bigger RV and on wind, or passing trucks is not too fun... :D

Looks that this one has twin tires, probably for better stability. The one I'm building will have singular tires. :)
