Yes, 1/1 scale is also on jacks right now! I'm collecting some hard-to-find parts for the full-size car right now, especially electrical switches that are peculiar to the Standard Beetle. The Standard was never imported officially into the U.S. so I'm sourcing the rarer parts from all over!

I'm quite lazy and should start a different thread for the full-sized car, but here you see I've begun to remove the horrible white respray. Fortunately for me I think the interior can be stripped of the white and the original Jupiter Grey can be polished. The goal is to keep as much original paint on the interior surfaces as I can and repaint the exterior only.

And on the 1/16 version, the first painting has begun. The wheels are essentially complete now and I also sprayed part of the trunk and dashboard so I can start scratchbuilding the speedometer and wiring harness that sits behind the dash.
