Busch 45802

Type

Volkswagen Karmann-Ghia 1600 L 1966.

Comments

Unpainted model. Headlights, indicators and rear lights painted. The mould seems tired: a lot of burrs (windows surrounding, rocker panels, wheel arches), and a big moulding join in the middle of the front face.

The interior seems pretty well done, but the deforming windows don’t allow to see it clearly.

This is not the best Busch!
