Project Herbie

A few pics of my Tamiya Volkswagen Beetle RC Model build.

This was a great kit to build. The instructions were fairly clear to follow and include a lot of detail. The shell is a clear polycarbonate and can be sprayed as you wish. There is a colour code provided but I decided to go for the Herbie style!

Clear instructions


Main chassis

Shock assembly


Front and rear suspension set-up

Chassis fitted with wheels for shell test fit

Shell sprayed in Tamiya white

Starting to fit the Herbie graphics

Most difficult part was fitting the window frames!


The complete model


This kit was great fun to build. I have yet to take it for a run; a bit wary as don't want to damage it!
