Finished and quite pleased with it!!

Thanks to Ron and Pete for the bonnet/boot advice








First attempt at a louvre and dropping a window..........



p.s. it does sit level, the felt on the dog kennel is uneven.

Colin, looks great. Nice job on the details.

A really nice Volkswagen model Colin, - which had me wanting to buy another beetle,
and a good attempt at the rear window louvres
but I personally have never liked them
- even on real Lamborghinis, or Mach 1 Mustangs.
( just my preference, you understand).

Under bonnet ( the front one) & engine detailing rocks. Like the colour too.

I don't think the black & silver wheels suit, but from memory that's how some came from the factory.
And only my crackpot opinion anyway...........
