  1. I was excited to build a brand new 1/8 scale kit from a new company after building so many Pocher kits over the years. Here are my quick building impressions of the new LeGrand 1/8 Collection VW Beetle kit (a complete kit version of the DeAgostini/ModelSpace partworks kit) a decorative metal sign is included body parts are prepainted with all necessary scripts and trim, wheels are metal, tires are softer than Pocher plastic parts are prepainted, bagged and boxed in groups (no sprues to cut!) the screws are nicely prepackaged in three compartmentalized boxes (you will have
  2. Hi all, Today I actually managed to start my first model... the Tamiya 1966 VW Beetle. I was originally going to build this to be the same as the beetle I used to own however I believe it would be too difficult for a first model, I would have to change too much on it as mine was a ‘74 and therefore had different lights, bumpers etc. So I’ve decided to do it from the box (I may fit the opening rear windows I’ve seen on HighlightModelstudio.com). I’ve spent ages searching through the Hycote colours online to find one I like, I originally was looking at VW col
  3. This may or may not be how the beaches of So Cal could have looked if the combined forces of the U.S and Great Britain had not prevailed in WWII. Nice model to build with the addition of a scratch built roof rack, machine gun barrel exhaust pipes and after market nose art decals (slightly doctored). Finally got hold of some 1/24 scale sun loungers! Thanks for looking, regards Siffo.
  4. Something a little different from me - I'm doing a pair of Thunderbolt models of the same a/c, one in USAAF colours, the other German, as shown on the sheet below. I've had this particular sheet from Cutting Edge since my UK visit in 2007 (!!), and haven't managed to do anything with it - this GB is a good place to start, I think. To that end, I have 3 Academy P-47D kits, 2 of which will be used for this GB as a joint build - appropriate, seeing as they will be representing the aircraft named 'Beetle', as flown (and lost) by 2nd Lt William Roach, 358th FS, 355th FG, 8th AF both while it was
  5. Type 82E German Staff Car 1:35 Revell The Type 82E is best known as the Volkswagen Beetle, the people's car designed by Ferdinand Porsche for the Nazi ideal of a mobile workforce. It was designed for cheapness of manufacturer, to be robust, and to be easily maintained by users, running an air-cooled engine that gave it a distinctive sound that is still recognisable today. Most people probably don't make the link between the hippy-era Beetle and the German Staff car, but there it is. Millions were made over the years, and after production finished in Europe the equipment and toolings were t
  6. Another kit finished this year... i like the final result..
  7. Hi Everyone, Here is my 2nd completed project of 2015. This is Revell's 1:24 scale Volkswagen Beetle New Style. This is an almost exact replica of my own car. The colour is very similar and as the model was made in Germany, the model is left hand drive rather than the UKs right hand drive. The kit is painted in Tamiya X-4 blue and black paint. Anyway here are the photos. Thanks as always for looking. Cheers, Rick
  8. Hi Everyone, Here is another of my early builds for 2015. A Revell 1:24 scale New Style Volkswagen Beetle, which was another of my purchases from LSA Models. This is something of a personal project for me as this is the first and only car I have owned since passing my driving test, I will therefore be painting it blue as that is the colour of the car I have. I would also like to create a custom number plate decal, but not sure how to do that. Anyway here are the photos of the box and sprues. Update as soon as I get to work on this kit. Rick
