"68 VW."
Ourgreenacres92
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.

"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.

 
"Outstanding Replication"
Bill Z. (Forsyth, GA)
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!

 
"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.
