Revell VW Samba

A samba of many panels really, I based it on the idea of it being cobbled together from salvaged parts, basically a cherrypicked vehicle.

Comments welcome.

First go at doing a mural type thing

It looks ok in the flesh, the photos make the boundary between the colour and the white so rough, like I said any comments and pointers welcome.

Thanks

Sam

I've been waiting to see this. I was talking to a friend about doing one of these earlier today. Nice job on the lettering. I wouldn't change a thing. :)

I wasn't too impressed with the fit and finish of the kit, i dont know if yo guys are familiar with it, but i feel that the body came in far too many bits, it does lend itself to making a model like the above, but I couldn't get the shell put together accurately enough to make look concours or to a show standard which was the original plan.

Also the wheels supplied (not used) if scaled up to 1:1 they'd come out at nearly 20", not exactly accurate imo. :D
