I have had this kind of painting theme in my mind for a while. I thought that it would fit quite well to a beetle. Also I'm building VW's quite a lot. I chose Gunze Sangyos oval window beetle, because it's curbside. I didn't want to focus on engine. So I tried to create something quite psychedelic, but still realistic. At interior I had somekind of show car in my mind. Once again, I opened the roof and scratch built the sun roof.

The whole painting is painted freehand with brush. I used 1-Shot enamels and Alan Johnson brush. I also added some details, such as that eye ball to antenna and that mushroom gear shift knob. Please see also those exhaust pipes :)

Wheels are classic BRM. Those are from Japan, and are made out of aluminium.

Welcome to the forum, and thank you for sharing your amazing eye candy with us. Looking forward to more.

Thank you. I have been at this forum for some years, but I'm not posting too much :) I have about 6-7 models at this under glass-section. You can also see all my models from my web site, link below.

Hand painted? Well, that surely sets you out from the crowd. That is fantastic work. Welcome to the forum.

I agree, painting by hand is truly an art and your work is phenomenal. A definite mush-see! :P

In a more serious vein, our new friend Eero also did this one, which I thought was impressive.


(Go to his link to see more pics of this - great work!)

Eero, can you explain the orange at the leading edge of the vent windows?
