  1. EDITED: 16SEP2016 ALL NEW PHOTOS. I think I finally have the final MODs, MODs * Front end lowered 2 plates using Averagejoey's mod. * White-Out (replace all "Chrome" (read light blueish gray) with white * Removed the VW logos on bonnet. * Dark Brown dash, steering wheel * The "Chrome" housing for tail lights color matched body to Dark Azure * Close up the hole in front of gas tank * Tried to clean up colors inside front bonnet. * "Shaved" front turn signals (a real life mod would install turn signals inside headlight assembly) * Removed the jumper on the engine cover for the extra licence plate. * Dropped the Dark Azure one plate lower on doors, and under rear windows. The "factory" light blueish gray stripe wasn't even across the side of the car. Now that line is. * Thinned up the front bumper one plate * Changed out the 1X2 plates for 1X2 wedges under front of the bonnet. I think I got everything...

    If that were the case, you think there would have been a picture of that on the box... The F-40 has a photo on the box of the engine removed and on "display".

    I'm sure this has been covered, but couldn't find anything in a search.... When a new model comes out. Say 10252 Creater Volkswagen Beetle. There as you know a crap load of new Dark Azure pieces. What is the guestimate on when they will show up on Bricks & Pieces for purchase? They are all there now, just show out of stock. Thanks

    Doubt they can just "cut ties" Probably on a long term exclusive contract. Just read an article that they are "blazing trails" for player specific products (and that was from key league licensing people(NFL/NCAA)), not the writer or OyO with the "blazing trails" comment. And those three MLS(Major League Soccer) fans across the US with hopes, can scratch that. MLS is also signed with OyO.

    I think I like the road you went down. Makes very good sense. Let's model a brand new museum. Even the possibility of selling it in the gift shop, along with the Burj Khalifa, as a way to promote LEGO in a new area.

    Let's see. NCAA, NHL, NFL, and MLB are signed with OyO. NBA is with another company, can't think of which one. These guys don't usually sign multiple company deals for same type product. So what's left? Soccer. LOL Guess this won't be a popular line in the US... Unless there are no licenses, and generic teams

    Review Review: 10252 Volkswagen Beetle

    That is something I've thought of. Well and engine swap in any case, not necessarily the Porsche 3.0. But not much of a mod'er or moc'er here, Just getting started. So probably won't happen for me unless someone posts instructions. Though I have learned a few things in changing somethings out on this car. Have also looked into removing the roof rack. Will take a lot of 1x2 tiles since they don't have anything bigger in the Dark Azure. Maybe carry the two-tone theme to the roof in white.

    Review Review: 10252 Volkswagen Beetle

    I ordered 55978 which are 37X22ZR's, so a little more lower profile than yours at 43.2X20ZR's (to note: the "factory" tires are 49.5X20ZR) Thinking about buying another one to build as "factory". I know. i think, I've almost got mine the way I want. still waiting on a few parts. My list of mods: * Two Tone white. * Dropped front end (per your instructions) Will leave this way. Really like the raked look. * Currently have the Metallic 3x3 discs for hub caps. (not sure how this will end up.) * In process of doing a "white-out" for all the "Chrome"(read light bluish gray) pieces * "painted" rear tail light housings body color * "Tinted" rear windows * "Shaved" front turn signals (in the real world, turn signals would be incorporated into the headlight assemblies) * Modified front bumper to be only two plates wide at thickest part instead of three, removed front licence tag(not sure if will stay off yet) * "Shaved" engine deck lid handle. (and replaced 1x2 jumper for extra 1x3 plate for the other license tags for a 1x2 body colored plate.) * Removed the bars (1x2 slopes on front edges of the bumpers), they are just plain straight bumpers now. Think that's all.

    Review Review: 10252 Volkswagen Beetle

    Pretty cool MOD. I've just did it on mine. Thanks. Was actually thinking about a way to do that same mod, last night watching the lastest webisode of Jay Leno's Garage, he had a guy with a custom '66 Bug, and he had the front end dropped. This should go well with other MODs I have planned. Awaiting on the pieces to arrive. Plan on modifying the bumpers, and blacking out the "chrome"(read light blueish gray) Wanted to do a "white-out" with the "chrome" but ran into the problem the Bar Holder, with handle, it only comes in black and light blueish gray. So to complete a "white-out" paint would be involved, and really don't want to do that. I think I've figured a way to do the bonnet bar in all white pieces, but stuck on another way to mount the mirrors. :( Will keep looking though. Though will probably still use the wider wheels/tires when finished. Just a lower profile tire to fit the front end. I also two-toned mine with white when I built the Bug.

    License plates for the 10252 Beetle

    4th generation '65-'67 best I can tell. (this is the first generation that had orange turn signals in the rear, also the last one to not have a gas tank filler on the outside.) So the plates don't match either the California, or UK plates. I understand in California. Once you are issued a set of plates you can keep them forever, and do not have to change to a new style when they are released. But I'd still like the style plate that was being issued for when this car was new. The picture included for this generation even as the roof rack. http://image.mamotorworksmedia.com/production/website/articlefiles/community/HistoryofVWChangespt1.pdf

    License plates for the 10252 Beetle

    I would like to see California plates in the black with yellow lettering, as that was the style plate in the 60's(at least in the mid 60's which this car represents). The yellow with the black lettering is from the 50's.

    Review: 10242 - Mini Cooper Mk VII

    There is. simply drop an email to Lego.com, and they will have the two correct windscreens(front & rear) in the mail within the week. At least mine were. It is the same size/mold windscreen as the Beetle. Though as mentioned. The Beetle is trans-clear, and the Mini is Trans-Black.

    Lego sends out models early to select people/sites(like this one) so they can do reviews.

    Thanks for the info. Interesting how things change from state to state. When I lived in Hawaii, the plates belonged to the car. You went an bought a new car, or any car from a dealership it already had plates on it.(unless you happened to get a new one that arrived at the dealership within the week.) Made for a total pain in the megablocks to transfer personal tages from one car to another. Most didn't even bother. Buddy of my bought a car and it had KADY(Kay-Dee) on the license plates. Everyone always asked him who the hell Kady was. He'd just laugh. Then he and his wife had a daughter. As a joke they named her Kady. LOL...

    Here's a question on the California license plate? Why is it yellow with black lettering when for the era of the Bug should be black with yellow lettering(1963 to 1969) which would be the era of the Bug? Is California one of those states that don't make you change plates when the style changes? Georgia I know is one. There are about 4 different standard Georgia(non specialty plates on the road today)

    That's what I think. I ordered parts to two-tone the car with white. and also picked up the wheels in the Pearl Gold for it.
