Really neat conversion.  Some mighty fine modeling.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

That's a surprise, Patrick, but based on your previous buggy posts I should have expected something like it.  Nice job, she's come up very realistic.  Cheers

Very cool, Patrick. Nice conversion. That's a proper sand machine.

Thanks guys, I still love the aircooled VDub motor. We had five Beetles over the years, three for myself and my wife and our youngest son had a saloon and a '59 Karmann Cabrio.
