    Excellent product & service

    Brilliant kit, like others I wanted one of these 30 years ago but couldn't afford one. My kids helped with the build and loved it so much they now have a Vanessa's Lunchbox. Very impressed with Wondeland Models; I Ordered this kit along with all the required paints and a staff member called very promptly to say one item was out of stock, would it be ok to substitute for another brand. All arrived shortly afterwards. Thank you :-)

    Always wanted one!

    I was a big fan of Tamiya RC in the 1980's & always wanted the Monster Beetle but couldn't justify the high cost of the kits back then. So, 30 years on...I have finally got my hands on the kit and am part way through the build. Looking forward to the first run out! Wonderland delivered promptly and I upgraded the RC pack for the 'racing' version.
