Mentioned after the Kodiak Lumina, that my next car build would definitely not be any sort of race-car, so here's Tamiya's gorgeous little 1966 1300 Beetle wearing Tamiya Mica Red & Light Gunmetal (TS-42). Decals are from the RoG Beetle and are superb.



















As ever please feel free to make any comments, hurl any abuse or ask a question. Next build will be a helicopter (Yikes !!). Until next time...

Ian.

Shame I can't see them at work image sharing sites are blocked here.
Have you thought about using the awesome (and free) KM Photo sharing site (not blocked by government agencies (yet) photos.kiwimodeller.com/ a totally free service for uploading your model photos and sharing to all the different model sites that you traitors belong to :P

Nice model of a crappy car Ian. Being a passenger (quite a few times) in a 1300 beetle put me off the VW brand for life. Back in the late seventies had a friend with a rusty 1300 Beetle, so rusty you could see the road through the holes in the floor, but it wasn't until a night getting a lift home when it started to rain heavily did I truly fear for my life as turning the wipers on killed the headlights and vice versa, not to mention the truly shitty scary handling on wet roads. On more than one occasion that crappy Beetle swapped ends and left the road going backwards. How VW ever sold these things is completely beyond me!
