Revell of Germany's kit. I love oddball cars and aircraft, and this certainly fits the bill! Little 2 cylinder air cooled engine.

That is spectacular! Almost a "Beetle", but with some style.
To make each build less crappy than the last one. Or, put another way, "Better than the last one, not as good as the next one!"..

Looks very nice MP! Like Lyle, I also think that it does have some resemblance to a Bug. But with a touch of M.G. as well :hmm: Only a two cylinder engine?

excellent! Really nicely done. And a subject you rarely see. Cool colors as well. :shoutout:

I've got a Revell Isetta in the stash - maybe we should do a quirky group build :hmm:
Thanks,
John

Any interest in parting with it?

That is a beauty. I love the finishes.

Nice work!
Is this the one that could be completely dissembled with a single spanner and a screw driver? That guy got stuck in the desert with one and turned it into a motorbike.
