"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.

 
"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.

 
"Outstanding quality kit."
ryanmacgregor08
What a great kit! My only complaints are that this is not a '68. It appears to be a '67 with bumpers/windshield wipers from a custom or California style beetle repurposed. I wanted to build mine like the mystery Beetle from the movie Bullitt. I was extremely impressed by the engineering of this kit and by the detail of the interior and motor.
