Beetle Mania! Bugster Pix

I've had a lot of requests for this one.




Interior is flocked in two tone purple.
,
Body is Revell Snap New Beetle with the nose and wheels coming from a Revell Porsche Boxster, also snap. The deck is carved from bass wood. Color is a custom mixed 80's 911 light purple.

Oops! left one out...

Two contests two second places.

Re: Beetle Mania! Bugster Pix

Wow! Neat! That's a very imaginative and unique custom. I doubt anyone else would have thought of that combination, and the execution is top notch. Great work! What a cool model!

Re: Beetle Mania! Bugster Pix

Wonderfull! Seems like we share the same taste: I just planned to paint my "due cavallini speedster" 2CV quite the same purple, and use the same rims... But I'm afraid it won't look as good as this marvellous bugster!
