So I'll get the ball rolling here's mine.

Here's my daughter's Herbie. We got the "53" stickers with the car, but not sure exactly how to put them on.
More importantly, while I increasingly prefer non-magnet cars, a Herbie should be able to drive on the ceiling so to speak.
We suped this one up with an extra magnet and an NC-5 motor. Still could use another well placed magnet, but it goes pretty well.

Don't know yet if it will be an Herbie, but I have an Airfix VW Beetle 1200 to build :



I plan to use a Ninco 356 chassis. What did you use for yours ?

Mine is the Pink Kar version. Has anyone applied the '53' decals on top of the '58'? does the 8 show through?

I'd like to know this as well. You get the decals with Herbie, but what's the best way to apply them?

iman,
The Kombi is dicast! I thought everyone had one so I had to have one too! This one fitted very well into my Hawaiian themed track, came from e-pay
Though I have seen one with resin body I think Ocar, one day!


I didn't mention my Herbie is a Teamslot model meant to be Marlboro! With a "Jimmy in Greece" Motor, I got the decals from MRE.

Fred it has to be a Herbie! everyone has to have one!!!!

my kombis the same as that i think,
only the top half is die cast, i shrink fitted a new top out of bikkie tray plastic over the kettle, butchered a 10 dollar slot track car for a chassis
and attacked the rest with the dremel, net cost ZERO dollars
almost the most fun you can have with your pants on,
does seem to be a bit top heavy though...

Here's mine. Not Herbies but still Beetles. And like the Beatles, there's just two:





Cheers,
Richard
