MK18 Beach Buggy Club
Posted by PatrickW on Monday, April 20, 2015 5:55 AM

I've just put this together from my Manx and other Aircooled VW engined buggies.

I did another diorama some time ago so apologies for it's basic appearance.

  My favorite of your buggy builds is the #211

off-road racer. But I have enjoyed seeing all

your buggies that you have built!

  And thanks again for the buggy pilots you

sent me last year, I cherish those little mates

And here it is...............with modded wired engine, chrome sides, two piece alloy spun and photo etch wheels and haberdashery pin heads for the front wheel bolts....................

 

Enjoy. I'm still thinking of stretching one to normal Beetle length and even a six wheeler!

Thanks mike, as I've said here and elsewhere as I could never afford a Manx the least I could do was to make the best job of each one. 'Living the dream through AMT'
