HI all here's what I'm building as a competition on another place.


Can't tell you what's going to happen to the poor fella, think of the warspite dio, there will be at least a couple of explosions, I have a feeling none of you will know where this is going till the last couple of posts.
There was a little flash on the parts but the worst bit of the kit is the awful mold seams on all the wings.

Big seam, but I'd rather that than one that can be missed until the gloss coat !
So what are your evil plans for the VeeDub?

Really like the body paint and flowers - very late 1960's. I'm still mulling over the 'evil plan' but can't nail it down, lol. Looking forward to seeing what you've got planned.

Hi all here's the next update (it may not look very pretty I accidentally stood on the engine) I've tried to fix it up a bit (it doesn't really matter as it won't be seen in the dio and anyway no one will be looking at the beetle.







Couldn't resist trying the body on it.

Very nice work! Still unsure about the thing ... it puts me in mind of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, kind of ... I guess I'll just wait to see what mayhem ensues, lol.

Looks like the "War of the Worlds" bug just zapped your bug.
