"Great detail, fun kit, disappointing decals"
Smckinley94 (Arizona)
Have had a lot of fun building this kit, fit is great detail is awesome - particularly the engine and interior. There is also some great opportunity to modify. My complaint is with the decals set, the kit is designed to have the white walls applied by decal and they simply never adhered to the rubber tires, when I tried to apply a thin layer of acrylic matte over the top the decal disintegrated. I thought this was just because of the tires but none of the decals ever set. Clearly the decals don't make or break the finished product, but would have been nice to actually have the white wall option.

"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.

"Outstanding Replication"
Bill Z. (Hermitage, PA)
This Revell model is designed and molded in the Country of Poland. I have just under 100 completed models in my hobby collection, and this is absolutely the best designed and molded model I have ever assembled. Each and every part fit without even the slightest pressure or modification. The detail is quite astounding. 47 years ago, I purchased a new 1969 VW Beetle the same color as the model I just completed. The details of this model are so close to the actual automobile, it makes you think you are looking at a real miniature version done by some weird act of Science. This is the only model I have constructed that has an actual headliner that is installed, and grab straps that hang over the door entries. If you decide to purchase this kit from Hobbylinc, and take your time, you will be totally pleased with what you have accomplished!

"68 VW."
I like to build 68 year kits. My wife was born in 68. Easier to get the money and not another model passed her. This is a kit with many parts. Some flash and sink marks on the body. Mainly the front fenders. But the kit looks awesome. I bought 2 different kits on sale at hobbling and even with shipping it was cheaper than my local hobby store. Plus I did not have to drive 40 miles one way. Great deal, from a great supplier. Please keep up the good work. Now to find the time to start building. Think I will take the rear tires from the tee vee kit, lower this one, paint it 2 tone yellow and white. The wife was wearing yellow shorts the day we met way back in 86. I can see it now. Gonna be awesome. Great deal. Keep it up.


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