Ready for the beach

Beach Buggy

Finishing the buggy was simply a case of sticking on the prodigious number of transfers. I like those for the tail lights, it saves a fiddly painting task.

There are also loads of decorative stickers which bring the model alive.

Finally, the white walls for the tyres are transfers, but ones that don't seem to fit. I had to cut each one to wiggle it into position with the ends overlapping each other. Not difficult, but odd in a clip-together kit.

Anyway, the results are rather nice.11.5cm long over the nerf bars, it's a tiny model and really would have benefitted from some figures to set it off. Having said that, it's a really cheap kit so I can't complain too much. I'm still after a sensibly priced Airfix version though.
