    One question, old bug or new?

    I actually like the Peugeot 206 design myself, but I would certainly not be against seeing the re-shell done... again.

    Old bug. No question about it. The old bug is an automotive icon, a huge and important step in the automotive industry, not to mention its what the original g1 bb was based off of, not that souless/character-less water-cooled, front-wheel drive shopping cart you see today.

    Do it and I may have to buy it from you. A Model for a 63 will look just like the 62 I am working on and make a killer display at shows.

    I wish you good luck finding a VW in the right scale.
    I have a kit (don't think it's the right scale), and the shell is very thin.

    It's a worthwhile endeavor.

    I don't know, that new new bug is pretty damn cool. I just saw one of them on my way to work. But I agree that the classic bug is the way to go.
    Isn't 1/43 the correct scale, or is that 1/32?

    Randy!
