This model of a VW Beetle 1967 is published in cooperation with James Tillson who has designed the MOC and I have created the 3D-model, the step by step instructions and the digital renders.

In the 1930’s the Beetle was commissioned as the "people's car" (Volks Wagen in German) and was originally called VW Type 1. Designed by Ferdinand Porsche, the Beetle was practical, affordable and reliable. The Beetle was produced between 1938 - 2003. With 21,529,464 produced, the Beetle is the longest-running and most-manufactured car of a single platform ever made.
