This is the begining of something I've been planning for a while. The idea is to start with one kit, A rally Beetle, and see how many different cars I can produce from the one chassis. Wheels and tyres can be changed as well as mounting posts but other than that not a lot. OOps forgot yes different body spacers.L/M/S none. I have the beetle along with a WW body set and a Pumpkin set to start with.The beetle is going to use a set of "Herbie" stickers I bought a while ago, so a nice easy white paint job!!! The only problems I have is the wheels and the colour? The kit wheels are not right at all. Herbie had banded standard vw wheels. Sometimes with hub caps sometimes without.The tamiya VW wheels would be good but too narrow., and banding them too much aggro. Any suggestions. The colour is another issue. In some pictures he looks very off white? (Apparently its called VW pearlweiss) He also has a sun roof!!!!!
As I while away the midnight hours due to insomnia I come across the same thread within lots of threads and that is the question will so and so fit on such and such chassis. For instance will a Midnight Pumpkin body fit the Suzuki Jimmny/ rally beetle chassis??? Would it be possible to start a thread where members measure the wheelbases of bodies and post them so others can see if they fit various chassis? Manufacturers seem to list wheelbase sizes but not body shells.?
