Remember the Dinky Action Kit Beetle I found a few weeks ago?

I was going to repaint it in Humbrol just as the original owner did in the 70s, but started tidying up casting lines etc and one thing lead to another...

I'll go over the running boards again later, totally forgot until I'd put it together!

Had kids at seaside today and in your average seaside shop found these along with pullback bugs campers etc. £5.99 each i grabbed 2, they had few more. Bases of cases are perspex not black so am i right that they'd be late 80s? Similar to one i got new in 1989

Yeah vitesse, they'd a matt black 47 saloon, a red one with white wings and another black ragtop like the one I got. Thought the £ was cheap enough on them.

I think they were cheap, well done
If my memory serves me correctly :unsure: the first VW Vitesse releases were in gold card and the dark red ones came out a little later

Cheers, I'd lost the cardboard off the box of the original one I got in 1988 so can't remember, have a few others from the mid 90s (Reichpost Beetle van etc) and from memory the cases have a black base, so they're maybe early 90s then. They're a nice wee model :)
