Default First paint job

This is a Proline Baja Bug I painted recently. It didn't turn out quite like I hoped, but I learned from it. It is my regular basher body, so I'm not upset that it isn't perfect.

Next plan is to trim the back to let me put the wing back on.

I've been a fan of VWs since I was a kid.  My first 9 cars have been dubs.  The beetle body makes a great basher, due to the slope of the roof.  Its a nice bonus.

Its pretty scratched up already, though.

Most of if not all of my rc's have had bug bodies... And it is true the bug body does make a great basher body due to the slope of the roof and no corners like other bodies.

Idk... Right now I am stuck on the E-Revo body but because I have a Revo 3.3 I have to go with the closest thing... The Slipstream.
I went all ADD and painted 2 bodies in a week... LOL
