Further Description/Back Story I have been a huge fan of Herbie since I was a kid, and when I saw that FMS/Rochobby was releasing a Beetle, I knew I had to customize it. I saw your recent review of the version done by RC Patina Guy, who did an amazing job on his Kommandeurwagen. Mine is a little cleaner, for now. I customized the bumpers, the paint, and decals, but kept some artifacts from the source material that I appreciated, like the stealth light, split rear window, interior, and roll-top color. The plates are from RC Plate Shop and the emblems are from Giuseppe Musumeci at I hope you like it!
