Never ever thought I'd get my hands on this model! I never even got to see it in the flesh in the 80s! It was mostly Tamiya around my parts, I only ever saw 1(!) Kyosho Scorpion.
So I was very excited when I saw that 'Integrafan' (Marwan) had made and sold a repro shell & decals! This is just unbelievable! Thank you so much Marwan!!!

Refurbished Cox Scorpion from FleaBay/US with new repro body, roll bar, body clamp & decals from Integrafan (Marwan).

Custom alu wheels and front bumper from Pargu 2000.

Yellow Team CRP wheel wingnuts.

All painting done by myself (also the lines are painted, I'll never ever do that again!).

Very happy with the result! Hope you like it!

That's in fact a great looking beetle mate! Your fourth picture posted here is very good-a special combination of presenting a rc-car I really like that very much!

OOPS, almost used a bad word. You've got an awesome looking beetle! This screams to be taken to the beach! Hope you would be able to and post us the pics.

Very nice one, probably the nicest I've seen. But it would look so much cooler with the bumper in the right place, under the frame rails

Nice. Looks like a drag car, baja car, race car all in one. Neat job

I love this Beetle. I also had a spark in this after purchasing a re-Sand Scorcher. This model has meaner baja bug looks! Love it!

Great Paint Work. I am in the process of a Scorpion/Beetle conversion as well and looking at paint work and yours turned out great./VN
