Tamiya 1/24 Volkswagen 1966 Beetle 1300 Plastic Model Kit

Even in this age of sophistication, the Volkswagen Beetle has not diminished. The original design dates back to the 1930s when Dr Ferdinand Porsche provided the design framework for his "people's car". Today, with over 20 million produced, the Beetle has become a symbol of mass-produced motorisation, with no other vehicle exceeding the figure. Built upon a sturdy platform chassis is the amazingly reliable air-cooled four cylinder engine. Suspension is four wheel independent for crisp handling and driving comfort. Throughout its production life of over 80 years, the Volkswagen was continuously upgraded and improved to meet modern automobile standards. Even today in the new century the Beetle can still be seen running the streets of the world. No other car marked a generation like the Volkswagen Beetle.

High quality, precision plastic model kit. Paint and glue not included. Requires assembly and painting. For intermediate to advanced skill modellers.
