    VDUB beetle dio

    Post  kpnuts on Tue May 02, 2017 9:37 pm

    HI all here's what I'm building as a competition on another place.


    Can't tell you what's going to happen to the poor fella, think of the warspite dio, there will be at least a couple of explosions, I have a feeling none of you will know where this is going till the last couple of posts.
    There was a little flash on the parts but the worst bit of the kit is the awful mold seams on all the wings.

    Hi all here's the next update (it may not look very pretty I accidentally stood on the engine) I've tried to fix it up a bit (it doesn't really matter as it won't be seen in the dio and anyway no one will be looking at the beetle.







    Couldn't resist trying the body on it.
