VW Beetle Flat-Four Engine 1/4 Scale Model Kit

Main photo   

VW Beetle owners, automobile fanatics, scale model builders and collectors around the world are excited to finally have the opportunity to own a true replica of the most iconic car engine in motoring history. The VW Beetle 1600 boxer engine that has powered millions of VW Beetle's and Camper's 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.

Our Weedub 1600 kits are magnificent 1/4 scale models based on the famous flat-4 engine. Available in two versions, the Classic kit for the VW traditionalist and the Custom kit for those who like things spiced up.

With an ongoing process of enhancement to our kits, customers are guaranteed the very best quality, parts detail and ease of assembly at all times.

Phil, let me say right up front that while we build replica automobiles (*refer below) I have no experience working with the very tight tolerances of a model. I cannot imagine the amount of work it took you to make this kit. A little extra time is spent adjusting a few items to fit better, but overall I am impressed with the finished product.

As for the instructions. They are clear and the photos helpful indeed. I loved the experience and now have an appreciation for just how difficult a challenge making, packaging, documenting, and marketing a product, any product, can be.

Your customer service is beyond excellent. 

Thank you.

Model of the Month

Rob S. from Waterloo Corner in South Australia sent us some pics of his freshly completed Weedub Custom kit and now joins the vast number of customers pleased with the assembly experience and finished model.
He recently attended his local VW Club and proudly displayed his 'pride and joy' much to the delight of other members who were amazed at the fine detail and accuracy of The Weedub Custom 1/4 scale model kit.

Well done Rob. Great looking model and worthy of the title of
'Model of the Month'.

Many customers have seized the opportunity to use a Weedub kit as a training aid.
Before attempting a rebuild of their full size motor, they have familiarized themselves with a VW 1600cc engine using our Weedub Classic model.

Not only do these customers get a basic idea of the mechanical function unique to VW motors whilst gaining an insight into dismantling and assembling a full size engine. In the end, they have a wonderful 1/4 scale VW 1600 engine for display.
Greetings Phil!
Wow, these VW engines are really cool! Thanks for all your kind words and keep it up. Best wishes to you and Stay Bitchin' Mate!!

Phil in Oz....Bingo!
Received the engine kit in good condition this AM. Been awhile since I re-built my (full-size) VW engine. Haven’t opened the instructions yet. The model looks super high quality. So fascinating to this old balsa modeler! And..."Hats Off" to you sir for your incredible creation! I will keep you posted on my construction progress.

Thank You,
Jerry M. ( Loxley, Alabama, USA)
Phil, I can only imagine how much TLC you have put into the project! Congratulations on a beautiful piece of art! Thank you again, Jerry
