At last, VW owners, automobile fanatics, scale model builders and collectors around the world are excited at the opportunity to acquire this piece of motoring history.

The Weedub 1600 kits are magnificent 1/4 scale models based on the famous flat-4 engine that has powered millions of VW Beetle's and Kombi'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.

Choose from two versions. The Classic kit for the VW traditionalist and The Custom kit for those who like things spiced up.

The Weedub 1600 Classic and Custom kits are now a reality. VW enthusiasts everywhere are now enjoying assembling and admiring these sensational models. As realistic as they look, these engines are non-working!

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 can not imagine the amount of work it took to make this kit.
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 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.

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 for your incredible creation! I will keep you posted on my construction progress.

Thank You,
Jerry M., Loxley, Alabama, USA

I can only imagine how much TLC you have put into the project! Congratulations on a beautiful piece of art!
Thank you again, Jerry

Phil, I've owned 1600 based VW's off and on since I was 16 and have built more than I've owned. I know this is something you've heard about (before), but I'm sure you never tire of hearing...."This is the most accurate depiction of this engine anywhere. Terrific job mate".
