About the model: This is the vintage 1990 Tamiya Quick Drive Monster Beetle given to me by my friend, originally it was in bad condition and broken all over places. So i've decided to give it a new life by rebuilding it, re-fabrication the chassis and give it a new aesthetic appearance to make it looks more awesome than it originally was. Now it looks fabulous!
