Hello everybody,

Here are the last issues of this wonderful (but expensive) beetle, I say expensive because for the same price you got twice more parts on the DS 21 !!

I must tell you that I had to buy a second front body because I broke a screw from the petrol panel, so take a great care a this time because the srew is too small and easily brake.

The next steps :

This one seems easy but in fact not at all, the two black pieces are hard to find the right place :

Fixing the two doors, the screws are a little bit too small, and it need glue to be well fixed

The dashboard, I had to repeint the opening panel in matt black, because the plastic of the two pieces is very different

One of the hardest step from the start : fixing the front hood, screws doesn't fit well and I had to put some little plastic part between screws and hood :

Hello everybody,

This one is now ended, here are the last steps

Fixing the body to the chassis, the lights are working well but the sound of the engine is awful.

The roof, the metal structure is quite good but the fabric (one inside one outside) is too large. At the end you'll see that it's ok for a closed model but not for an opened one.

And the final, a good model but the open position is not correct. Also quite expensive for the number of pieces.
