Posted by gtidude on Wednesday, December 15, 2010 2:39 AM
Hey guys, this is my holiday project. been cleaning up the 2 door conversion lines. debadged the grill. used the original slats, just carefully carved the badge out.....yes i know its easier just to replace them. anyways got some filler work to do still as you can see from the pix. i also started the 337 front spoiler. your thoughts and ideas appreciated.

It looks seamless so far!  I never knew there was a VW modeling community until 3 or 4 months ago, so it's great to see  you guys (and gals perhaps) turning out unique dubs in scale. 

Do you have a body color in mind?

Current project: '67 Plymouth GTX pro- touring, I think.

The blue and pink colour combo really pops. I love how the 1:24 Vdubbers are just as creative the the 1:1 guys!

 

Btw what kind of wheels are in your 2nd post Lambo?

Working on: -Fujimi Toyota Supra 3.0 -Hasegawa 1972 Toyota Celica 1600GT

Nice, looks really good! Did you make the front lip/sides yourself? I have a kouki 180sx model that I would love to make rear valences and a front lip for somehow. Love the wheels!

maybe think about adding some blue (exterior color) to the interior. Cool build however!

Looks nice.  You should have taken a VR6 from an earlier kit and opened the hood and created a shaved engine bay.  I have a 2004.5 Jetta GLI 1.8T.  I wish Fujimi or Tamiya would show some interest in the Jetta.  I'd love to replicate my car.  Converting a Golf into a Jetta is a major task.  Where did you get your wheels and tires?

What did you use to make the lips?

Great to see a VeeDub builder! I have a full scale GTI in the driveway and plan to build a Mark2.
