VW Bus

I made the Fuchs wheels and the soft tires.
I mastered the wheels as two piece rims. So now I have a rim blank and two other centers besides these that I can drop into them. Plus, with a slightly larger rim blank, I can use the centers on 1/43 scale cars too. This one is 1/64th scale.

After I polished out the roof, I acid etched the VW emblem into it. It’s about 0.010 deep.

Very cool Dub. Can I ask how you do the etch ? Stencil and just brush on the acid ?
