  1. Fantastic work there for a first car build! I do approve of the weathering as it give the car depth and brings it alive!! I'll be watching!
  2. Looking good Pete! I like those "nobbly" tires. Almost bought a Mk 1 in my air force days, unfortunately way too much body putty!

  6. Well, I have finally got some paint down and have started weathering the Samba.

  10. Now that is different, cool! Die-cast chassis and bonnet, interesting and you have plenty of rubber to put to the road.

    Excellent work!
  12. Well, work is progressing on my Frankenstein Samba, the engine bay needed to be addressed. I have decided to blend the R8 hatch back layout with the Samba in this area. Started off with card template to make the engine bay. engine bay template by Gavin Snowdon, on Flickr This allowed me to construct the interface and firewall. engine bay trial by Gavin Snowdon, on Flickr trial assembly 2 by Gavin Snowdon, on Flickr trial assembly by Gavin Snowdon, on Flickr That is looking snug, but I need to think of how this beast will breathe? I decided to mimic the R8 and create side intakes. INTAKE 1 by Gavin Snowdon, on Flickr INTAKE 2 by Gavin Snowdon, on Flickr Thanks for looking!
  13. Great imagination there!! That is looking simply awesome!
  14. Thanks for that! The other mods I have seen land up dropping the engine smack bang in the middle. Not ideal in my opinion.
  15. To be honest, this is recent work catching up very quickly to where I am now........very far from completed! I did not want to post anything if it was a total failure!
