Right then, here we go!!

I picked this little puppy up on Ebay for a good price.

It all started after I bought an airfix kit for Dirty Dave.

Project; Gunges 1.15000 scale airfix beetle... DSC01261
Project; Gunges 1.15000 scale airfix beetle... DSC01260

I took a trip to my local hardware store and bought some extra strong super glue for this huge project. I carefully layed out the parts on the table.

Project; Gunges 1.15000 scale airfix beetle... DSC01263
Project; Gunges 1.15000 scale airfix beetle... DSC01264

So I started by putting on the runners on the seats and locating them in the Chassis with the gear stick and the rear seats, as per instruction 1 (its all in russian by the way!!) luckly I have a russian lady friend (who I visit now and then!! Called Sharron smithski!!) So she is translating them for me!!

Project; Gunges 1.15000 scale airfix beetle... DSC01268
Project; Gunges 1.15000 scale airfix beetle... DSC01269

After this I had to roll over the chassis to install the front beam and rear axle and wheels.

Project; Gunges 1.15000 scale airfix beetle... DSC01266
Project; Gunges 1.15000 scale airfix beetle... DSC01271

I know, Im flying through this and this work so far has left me exhausted, Sharron smith.......ski has very kindly offered to rub my shoulders for me.

More to follow soon........................................................................
