Psychedelic Surf Buggy

This kit I understand is a re-issue by Lindberg in 1/20th scale.

I've changed a few things along the way, mainly removing the wood panels alongside and back of the removable top, and adding windows and travel destination decals.

I've also changed the front wheels as the tyres are a different style to the rears, with a very wide squared off tread, for rear wheels and tyres from the Meyers Manx kit. These wheels/tyres are just a shade smaller in diameter but much narrower. And in my normal way, changed the paint colour to 'Rover Metalic Green' and added a number of home-brewed decals.

The one area of change was having to add strips of plastic to the bottom of the body as when test fitted to the completed chassis, the height of the fan housing and dynamo stopped the body/chassis coming together level.

And wired the engine.

Thanks streetrodnut, I've been printing decals for about three years now.
