1974 VW Beetle Tail Light
Posted by MiG Hunter on Monday, March 05, 2018 2:52 PM

Hello all,

I am an aircraft modeller but I am planning to build a 1974 VW Beetle for a friend but after doing a lot of search there is none available online in any scale. 

I would ppreciate if you have any suggestion. My main issue is the tail light which should look like the one in this photo and not any other shape.

Please help!

The great thing about Beetles is that they changed so little thru the years.  The 1968 Revell Beetle is where I would start; there simply aren't that many differences.  There are lists online of exactly what changed from year to year and most are invisible at 1/24 scale.  Caveat - the Super Beetle does look different from the base model in a few places.  Good luck and let us know what you end up going with!

Thank you for your reply. 

I did more digging and got lucky to find this:

I ordered one already. Hopefully it has good details.

Oh, very nice!  I have a few Fujimi models in my stash; they're not box shakers like Tamiya but they're not overly fiddly like AFV Club either.  Be sure and post pictures when you build it!
