Custom Beetle!

As some of you know I owned a really sweet 69 Bug with lots of pating(cough cough CANCER) and less hope for like a hot minute. I never got to build it like I had dreamed and unfortunately had to sell it before turning a single wrench on it. Well, a diecast build will have be a proper substitute! Note, I think I went too heavy on the patina.

Oval window but not the exact same shape. Just tried something slightly different!

Also note the wheels. I chose these so i could emulate the look of the pre 1967 Wide-5 wheels and I think they look the part. They also look like little star fishes but whatever lol.
