    I haven’t begun assembly yet. I do not see any problems with assembling.

    This is not suitable for beginners!! The pieces all fit, except:
    -Mounting the side mirrors (no post/hole or tabs).
    -Front interior called “package shelf” made no sense in the diagram.
    -Some engine parts simply did not “line up”. Prepare to improvise!

    1. Prepare to use an Exact-o knife to trim parts. Some parts (tail lights, logo, trunk handles, door handles) are very small and tricky to hold. Small needlenose pliers worked for me.
    2. Some thin parts can easily break when you pull them from the “tree”. Be careful–use small snips (sidecutters) to remove them.
    3. Fit the parts together before you glue them. Figure out if they need special support while the glue sets. Model glue dries quickly and makes a mess if you try to adjust fits. Use a toothpick to add small dabs of glue on tiny parts!
    4. If you follow the instructions carefully, the front wheels will turn side-to-side (not connected to steering wheel).
    5. Don’t try to paint all parts at once. Don’t worry about matching all the color charts. It’s just a model! Give the interior a custom look!
    6. Remove paint or chrome where the parts are glued.
    7. Give the body a nice spray paint job of the color of your choice. I didn’t glue the body on, so I can put different “things” inside the car.
    8. Leave the windows out! They make it look toy-like, degrading the overall detailed look.

    Conclusion: I wouldn’t recommend this model for children under 10. It is fairly difficult because of the tiny delicate parts, but worth the effort. It would be a good team project with guidance from someone with some model building experience.

    Perfect. The delivery said 3 weeks and the seller couldn’t guarantee it would make the date I wanted however it did! So happy with it and my partner loves it too!

    Models are a lot smaller and more expensive than when I was young. I owned a 1968 Beatle and that is why I purchased it. It will probably be harder to build now that the parts are smaller and I am older. It will be a fun little project for me and will bring back lots of old memories. Thanks :)))

    Well detailed bug model arrived on time very good thanks.

    If you’re expecting an American 1968 VW kit, this isn’t it. Probably Euro version of the 68. American version had high back seats, larger rear lights and squared off bumpers. Quite a few differences from this model. But, it’s still a very nice kit. The engine detail is very good.

    I like the kit!

    I used this to make a custom body for my rc car and coukdnt be happier. The model was complex but fairly easy to get together. The hardest part was hunting down the right pieces by number

  10. Amazon Customer

    El modelo está muy detallado, el motivo de las 3 estrellas es que viene en color blanco, no en el tono azul que se ve en la ilustración de la caja, necesitas pegamento y si tiene un nivel intermedio para ensamblar, las piezas son todas en blanco, plateado y las llantas son de color negro, contiene hidro-calcomanias las cuales son un poco meticulosas de aplicar.

     Hard to put together. Instructions are to follow

    Perfect Model to use as the TV Show Hurbie the Love Bug
