PostSubject: The love bug (to cheer up my missus   Sun 25 Sep 2016, 3:04 pm

Hi all roymattblack sent this model to cheer my missus up in her recuperation.





First off let me say this may take quite a while as looking after Pam takes a lot of my time, but things should get easier as she recovers.

This model does not have a sun roof as Herbie does so that's the first thing to tackle  (luckily I did the samba bus a while ago with the sun roof open, it was a little too wide and long and a little too flat but nothing that can't be fettled)

Very nice! I'm certain this will help. Your being there in her recovery is the big thing. Loved ones around and knowing people care is vital and always a lift!

The engine rocks. It looks like the Canvas top is to thick. Sticks up to high. Maybe it's just me.

Very nice! The detail work is great and it's nice that the kit moulding on the body is sharp, this is going to be a wonderful Herbie!
