Ironically my 4th in scal 1/43 of the original beetle variant.


Wanting to collect all the early ones and its difficult to get these for a reasonable price.


Still i like the details applied to this model.

I can see the lens caps but what is the thing on the fender? It doesn't look like a mirror

Here is another one for you to find, Richard. The Greenlights  VW 30 in 1:64 scale. I have had it a few years now. Another model sent to me by friends in the USA.
I think this is a 1936 model of the first VW

Notek Abbreviation for Nova-Technik GmbH, München. Often used to refer to a blackout light, commonly called Notek lights . Used during blackout conditions for convoys in WWII. Most of these lights were mounted on the left/drivers fender. Beginning in 1941 the front black out light was required on all civilian vehicles in Germany as well.
