Mifi Scale VW Bug
This is my Mifi Scale of the official VW bug. Mifi is my own made up scale between Midi and Mini......unless Mifi is a typo like I suspect Midi is. Either way, keep an eye out for more Mifi scale items in the future!
About this creation




The hardest part of the bug in this scale is trying to get the bubbles just right for the hood, trunk, and roof. The roof is still a tad bit square for what I was after, but after hours of messing with it, I think it's as good as it will get.







One of the features of the original bug I wanted to keep was the detailed engine and opening trunk. I'm most proud of the engine personally.



An engine comparison between the two. The Mifi version isn't done in this pic, just the engine bay. I needed to tear apart the rear of the VW to cop more pieces and complete this build.



Next to Big Brother. You may notice pieces missing off of the larger version....Oops! Actually my goal with these builds is to use pieces I already own (NO Bricklinking!) and free up some of these larger items to bulk up my collection. I still enjoy the sets and that is why I'm making permanent mifi versions.




Well, I hope that you guys like this version. I know it's not quite perfect, but I'm still proud of it nonetheless. Keep an out for the Mifi Millennium Falcon coming really soon!

Your building skills are improving by leaps and bounds young padawan. You have managed to shrink the build down, yet still retain the distinctive shape - very well done. Lee.

Yes! This is very nice. My first car is going to be a VW Bug, and I'm going to put hydraulics in it. &^D

Just a spectacular build Heath! Scale has never been something I've been too worried about. Build what YOU want to build, not what someone tells you is acceptable. I gotta tell ya Heath, you've been here for like 3 weeks and not ONLY can you out build Shaddix, but you don't have those annoying "gotta insult all my friends" or "I'm better than all of you" things going on. Just keep doing what you're doing my friend. You're on the fast track! ~ Chris.

Quoting Luke Chapman Ah, the scale debate... a dance as old as time... An amazing rescaling of a lego product... V. Impredvie

Very cute. Congrats, you perfectly mini- or midimized the original set. To use the same paintscheme - how awesome, as these colors are rare. Maybe build a whole bug-family? ...Oh, the midi-figs - didn't LEGO once had a try?! -> http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?M=js025 Please, never again! Cheers, Jens

Ahhh, one of my loves, VW's. I'm partial to buses myself, but I am loving the 'mifi' engine! You really nailed the look.~H
