Baja Bug anyone?

Posted · Report post

How long overdue is a proper 1/24-1/25 Baja bug model.....only like forever, right? Well, the wait might just be over, thanks to a certain MD-based resin caster. Sometime in September is the proposed release date, and the pricing is still TBD, but the pre-production pieces I have in hand tell me it's gonna be a winner.

I can answer most questions about it, but all inquiries/feedback/pre-order pleas should be sent to normanveber@aol.com

Any chance for a wide-eye version? Not complaining, but I like them better. GREAT, by the way. I WILL be building one (some) of these!

No chance of a wide-eye from RepMinCo, unfortunately. I may, however, have a spare Revell-based resin wide-eye body that I wouldn't miss, Dale.....PM or email me: plasticman1432@gmail.com


If anyone is seriously considering this body kit from Norm, please drop him a line so he knows the demand is there.

I saw Norm Today, as well as the car, and placed my order. It's that good. Now I need to find a set of tires and wheels.

Would people want a set of wheels and tires cast specifically for this? I was using the Jeep wagon wheels and big and little knobbies.

I almost died several times in a `68 swing-axle Baja back in the 80's. I loved that car.

I must build one. B)

Paint it yellow and black and I'll have my old '67 back. I'm for the wide-eye front too but I'd be on board for buying this.

I've visited with Norm via email (great guy, seems like). Does he have a website?

No, he does not have a website. If you've already corresponded via e-mail, send him a note requesting his current catalogue. He is great to deal with and has his hands full trying to fill orders as it is without having a website. There are some fotki sites with pics of some of his parts. You'll have to do a google search to find them or someone might post a link.
