1971 Karmann - Ghia kustom / lowrider

Recommended Posts

Someone on this forum mentioned that he would like to see more of my VW`s so here is one:

I did this a while ago, Mr Model / Gunze Sangyo Karmann - Ghia.

I did it in kinda sixties- custom / lowrider style I quess. Pegasus wheels and stock hubcaps, lowered to the max.

I painted it with Tamiya lime green pearl over silver leaf base. Final layers were made with Tamiya clear.

Rear glass and rear quarter vindows were cast as a same clear part with top. I didn´t want to go with clear top so I sprayed few mist coats of lime green pearl to top.

Top is now supposed to look like tinted plexiglass custom top on a convertible.

Oh, and those nice spun aluminium mirrors are from Mr. Modeller, Brazil.

Thanks for looking these pics, comments are welcomed as always.

I love the Ghias, and youve built a nice one here. Nothing about it really says '60s though.

Awesome looking Ghia, well done! However, to me...with those taillights, it looks more lika a pre 1970 Ghia. I'm really not an expert though.....
