Thanks lads. I'd actually finished assemblying most of the sub-assemblies about 6 weeks ago just before the move. I really must try to remember to photograph them before I start painting - which will only be in a few weeks time anyway

I'll post them in a blog then.

I've seen that kit...looks nice. I got the revell ragtop version to build someday...flare the fenders, drop her down alittle and some wide wheels and a cool color....

I've also got the Tamiya Karman Ghia kit, which is virtually the same as this kit: the interior, floor pan and engine sprues are all shared; it's only really the body that's different. I started it some time back but never finished it (there's a shocker! ). Eventually I'll strip her down and give her a sweet Cal-look.

A blast from the past. Love it. Seeking one on eBay. I may be able to convert this one to the '61 I had. Gotta love a Beetle.
