Need Help with 1970's VW Beetle Tail Light
Posted by MiG Hunter on Monday, March 05, 2018 8:55 PM

Hello guys,

I am planning to build a 1974 VW Beetle as a gift but I have a hard time figuring out how to do it, as none of the scale models available in the market offer 1974 and/or its big tail lights. Please click below:

What should I do? I would appreciate your input and insight.

Check out the Italeri VW1303S Beetle for the body. It's a Eurospec, so the front bumper is different and it doesn't have the fender top turn signals, but it does have the large taillights. Not much of an interior, though. I think it is currently, at least very recently, in production.

Thank you for your reply.

Italeri is an option but it is very expensive in camparison with similar manufacturers. 

I did a bit more digging and like you mentioned, this one is coming soon, at the end of March 2018 from Japan. I just hope it does have large tail light as this is a must for me.
