If you are seriously into all things aircooled and VW, you may just have seen this...



For those that haven't...



This is a FULL-SIZE Sand Scorcher - meticulously copied by it's owner over 5 years as a true replica of the Sand Scorcher he got when he was little.



Right down to the large bolts that would hold his bodyshell clips - were he ten times bigger ! :D



This man has GOT to be one of the World's most serious Tamiya modellers...?



The text within each page cannot be easily read - please purchase the magazine if your are interested.



Truly - AMAZING - and road legal !



The best bit in MY opinion - is the wire receiver aerial coiled up the mast !



What do YOU all think ? ;)

April issue is out now - with 5 equally interesting Beetles on the cover - though none are Tamiya replicas !


See - [Click here]


It's amazing how many different styles can be achieved with an old Beetle and some imagination...!

...mind you - I expect that if there is much more interest in displaying it around the world - it may not be sold !
