This was started last year, but haven't been working on it much. But I'm back on it again.

Maybe if all goes well, I can have it done by the time the Southern NNL comes around in November.

Here are some pics.

New rims and the tires are Pegasus 5.20s flipped...

Thinking I may try a similar paint scheme to this... Not sure on the same colors , but I do like the pink in this....

Thanks guys... I am not thrilled with the fact that these old Revell kits don't come with detailed interiors such as door panels... So, I will be making some panels and a sub enclosure for it...

That's turnin out to be one bad little Beetle there. I like how you put the suicide hinges so close to the door frame and kept everything really tight to the body.

And for that 1:1 bug, I think that's the biggest rims I have ever seen on one....but overall it's pretty sweet.

Thanks Ken... This was the second time I had to hinge it... The first time the hinges were to big, so I had to redo it so I can make some door panels...
