Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine VW Beetle 1302S Alpine Rally 1971 Hand built available SCA250MA #12 SCA250MB #15 SCA250MC #37 SCA250MD #40 SCA250ME #43 With the end of the 917 racing project, Gerhard Strasser of Porsche Salzburg turned his experienced race team to rallying using the VW Beetle which they had managed to homologate with a number of new parts including the Porsche 914 engine and 5-speed gearbox! An early outing for these cars was the Austrian Alpine Rally and this kit offers the choice of five versions from this event, the best of which finished third overall! The kit is well cast and the shape of the resin body looks excellent. The luggage and engine covers are cast separately which will simplify painting as a couple of the versions have these panels in satin black against a silver body.
