Spotlight Review

"Tamiya 1/24 scale Volkswagen Beetle."
CaptainA (Indiana)
Do you remember the punch buggy game? If somebody saw a VW beetle, they would call Punch Buggy and hit the person next to them. I was not old enough to see out the car window, and my sisters loved to torture me. So I always lost. I told my wife this and we modified the game to Pee Wee Pucker. Whoever calls the Pee Wee Pucker gets kisses instead of punched. This version is considerably more enjoyable. So I bought this kit to build for my amazing wife. This is a Tamiya kit, so you can trust in the quality and engineering. It does not have an engine or any extra frills. Plan on a quick easy build. The hardest thing about this kit is choosing a color. So on to the build. The first five steps are building and attaching the suspension to the chassis. In step 6 you attach the rubber tires to the wheels and in the next step the wheels go onto the chassis. At this point you are halfway finished. In steps 8 through 10 you build up the interior. You will paint and attach all the glass in steps 11 and 12. Step 13 brings the interior, chassis, and body together. In the final step you will attach all the exterior pieces together. And you are done. I said this is a simple kit to make. That does not mean this is not a well-engineered kit. Anyone familiar with Tamiya kits will immediately recognize the quality of the moldings. The pieces are accurate and fit where they are supposed to. The panel lines are crisp and are where they need to be. The parts breakdown is engineered to make building easier. The instructions are easy to follow and understand. This is a great kit if you are looking for a quick easy build. This is a great kit if you are teaching a younger person how to build models I also want to emphasize this model catches the essence of the real car and looks great when finished. I had fun building this kit and I think most people will also have fun with this one. This is a great kit if you want to make a “Beetle Presentation.” So the big question is, would I recommend this kit? Yes I would without hesitation.
