LEGRAND 1/8 VW Beetle kit LE100 Build Log
  • Part quality and fit is good, all metal and most plastic parts have a nice pre-painted finish.
  • Steps 1-4: The first assembly steps took longer than expected, as identifying some parts was tricky without numbered sprues. Be sure to examine the master illustration of all parts in a "group" and their numbers at the start of each section, as the diagrams for the chassis and rear suspension assembly steps are a vertical view that makes part identication difficult. Skipping ahead in the assembly manual the illustrations have a 3-D perspective that will make things much easier.
