it was on test in Germany last year? It was mentioned on this "page" but it is pretty far back. It was the VW Samba...

I thought I saw it somewhere. I wonder if they will release it at all and if so when? I would love to get one!

Good find!

I guess it will be available on journaux.fr in the next few days for those who want to buy outside of France.

as the parts aren't even available online at altaya at the moment, I guess it'll be within weeks before we see it at journaux...
but as the first issues are fourtnightly releases, it's not really a matter of an urgent start but rather of waiting over 120 weeks before the parts set is complete...

It is the same model and I think that someone's fingers have a mind of their own!

It does look like a very nice kit to build but I just have too much on. Once the Mustang is done I will continue collecting the Mercedes gullwing.

Although these things are expensive I like adding them to my collection as they are something different to the military subjects.

All I need to do is design and build a multi level cabinet that can take the weight!
