amazing how the design had so few major changes untill the later models curved windscreen, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

What a great Beatle build. I actually owned a 1968 Bug but traded it in for a MG Midget which I sold privately and bought my beloved 1970 302 Mustang.

CCCCCCCool, I use to own a MUSTANG also … much less sexy , it was an 1981 GHIA hatchback

Lots of detail packed in to this little model :beetle:

YYYYYYYYou got it !

I’m currently re-building a 1972 1200cc, why the 1200, it’s for my son and I don’t want him wrapping himself and the Bug around a tree.

I’m doing very similar for my daughter with a 1973 1200!! We’ve not long since acquired the bug and currently gathering parts.

go on, let’s see where you are with it, I’m sure the op won’t mind. Love to see Beatles half built, you learn so much from them. Good luck with the project.

Great model project jmarc, excellent result.

It’s been stood since 1997 but engine runs good.
