VW Siblings

Recommended Posts

Here are a couple more older builds of mine. First we have Revell's micro-bus. Lower half of Monograms Testarossa molded to vw body. Chassis is the back half of the Testarossa grafted to the front half of the VW. Drive train is from the Tetarossa. It has a custom interior. Paint is Krylon gloss Teal and Ivory white.

Up next is Tamiyas New Beetle mixed with Ferrari Mythos. Chassis is from the Mythos complete with engine. Modified wheel openings to fit frame. Interior is also from the Mythos modified to fit VW. Paint is Krylon Sun Yellow.

A few more. I noticed that tail pipe is missing on this. Hope I can find it.

Wow, couple of really nice, refreshing builds. I especially like the mini bus.

How did you apply the Krylon? I've only seen it in spray cans.

On the beetle, it's cool how the lower windshield line turns into the top of the fender vent. The curve is even natural.

I wish my brain worked like that!!!

Those are both well executed and finely crafted.

Very nice concepts, wonderfully implemented! B)

Those were my thoughts!

These two builds are just awesome, great idea and spot on execution, this is what I call modeling. :)

Painted straight out of the can, then clear coated.
