    Applied some waterslides to a New age Bugbite version of Flipper (after sanding off the original tattoo design.)

    I've never worked with waterslides this small, so this took more tries than I'd like to admit, but, if you're interested in having a tiny Herbie, this is a good option, until someone does a better VW beetle in white to work from.

    Amazing! Might be difficult, but blue eyes would be an improvement since red looks kinda

    If I can figure out a good color, I'll do more to have both a kinder look and less "white bumblebee" risk, but so far the head is already specifically non-herbie like that I'm just going with it as bug bite disguised as Herbie.
