"Super nice kit!"
kshoopman (Chiefs Kingdom)
I have built the Tamiya Beetle and this Revell kit and in my opinion this is the superior of the two kits. Great detail and this is the only model I've built with a separate headliner and even grab handles and the VW flower vase on the dash. There are 21 pieces alone for the engine. There was zero flash and parts fit was excellent but I did have problems with the decals. My Walthers solvaset melted one of the chrome side molding decals but that would be on me for not testing on a unused decal. However the other five side molding decals simply did not adhere and fell off the body.

"Easy kit to build"
jakeleatherman
What a great easy kit to build. Upon opening the box you are greeted by the iconic VW Beetle body and a load of parts trees with minimal flash, a few beautiful chrome parts trees, and some really nice tires. The instruction manual was typical Revell booklet and easy to follow. The decal sheet was simple but had the chrome trim for the side of the car which I did not use. Reviewing the instructions shows you can build a right hand steering or a left hand steering model. Preparing the body was easy to do with very, very minimal mold lines that sand off easy enough. The motor was a bit daunting for me as I am used to building American muscle V8's or straight 6's, but once it got done it was awesome, almost a model itself. All the other parts came together in sub-assembles and when you got to that point is almost put itself together. The was by far, the easiest kit I have ever put together. There was no fitment issues whatsoever and just when it seemed like you would put together another sub-assembly, you were gluing the chassis to the body and calling it done. I HIGHLY recommend this kit and I HIGHLY recommend Hobbylinc for all you modeling needs. I have never had a problem with anything I ordered and always received prompt service, quick shipping, and excellent packaging. Order at least 2 of these kits for you will have another idea for one when you are building.

 
"Absolute Perfection!!!"
hillboys768 (Pocatello, ID)
I picked this kit up to do a tribute to my dear old dead granny who in her driving years would have nothing other than a bright red Volkswagen Beetle. I was pleasantly surprised to find one of the most perfectly designed kits I've ever experienced. If you're looking for a kit that will give you true modelling entertainment and pleasure this is definitely it. I'd recommend this kit for anyone of any skill level.

Due to small parts that could cause a choking hazard please kee away from children 3 years of age and younger.
