I'm still working on these but I just wanted to show some
pics of Grunts VW KDF Conversion Kit for 1:18 Maisto 1951 Beetle.

First a DAK / Tropical version

Grunt these are great Kits! The entire process is easy and quick, paint and weathering a little longer.

That's a nice 1952 sedan.

Fill in that 5-sided flap in front of the doors and you'll time travel back to the 1940's.
