If you're a serious Volkswagen Beetle, Kombi, Karmann Ghia, or mechanical enthusiast, this one's for you.

For the first time ever, VW owners, automobile fanatics, and collectors around the worldwide, can own a piece of history, albeit scaled down.

The Weedub 1600 is a magnificent 1/4 scale model kit based on the iconic flat-4 engine that has powered millions of Volkswagen Beetles around the world to this day.

Originally designed by Ferdinand Porsche in 1936 as a 985cc engine, it has evolved throughout the years with only minor modifications, thus maintaining the basic design, shape and mechanical function.

Due to the realistic quality of this model, many have asked the question,"does this model actually run like a real motor?" Answer...no. As unbelievable as that may seem, sold in kit form, The Weedub 1600 will give you great satisfaction during assembly. And when placed on display, you will be envied by everyone who sees it for years to come. A real showpiece and collectible to brag about.

The Weedub 1600 is a magnificent 1/4 scale model assembly kit. It is made using polyurethane, not cheap PVC. Polyurethane is expensive. Every part, approximately 70 pieces, are 'hand made'. Commonly referred to as 'garage kits'. Not spat out of a machine one every second. It takes almost a full day to ready a kit for shipping. Each part is made in a mold. These molds last for 30 - 40 pulls before a new mold must be made. Mold making is expensive and takes time, and we need dozens of molds per model.

Why is the model made this way you may ask? Because the complex nature of the model does not allow for plastic injection molding. Many parts would be locked into the mold and would not release. That is why this is the 'first' time ever a model of the VW 1600 motor has been made available on the world market which took 5 years to develop. The completed model of the Weedub is approximately approx. 28 oz (800 grams).

So what you get is a hand made kit of robust construction (many parts are solid) which is truly unique. In other words, a 'collector's' model. So with a limited manufacture run of around 2000 The Weedub 1600 will surely become a true collectible and financial investment.
The result is outstanding.
You will not be disappointed.
