Hi I picked up a load of built car kits but they need a bit of a TLC, some need repair, some total rebuild.

Herbie VW.
Gave it a good clean and changed the colour of the sun roof to black and repaint the running boards.

Hi, I've repainted the interitor and tidied the rest, re-fitted broken parts and made missing top arm.

Had trouble with the front wheel arches, just would not fit so removed the rear ones like the one below.

Wow Pete, you are one busy person with all the work you have on the bench. There are some great memories with these kits. The Bentley is sweet and the Monkee mobile too! what a super find...

Prost
