Today i be reviewing the following Beetle Car from XingBao, a subsidy of Lepin, Xingbao is said to concentrate on user MOCs and releasing products based on their designs.
XingBao Dream Car Series The Beetle Car (XB-03015)
RRP: Varies. I got it for USD $35
Contents of the Kit
The beetle car box is rather big and heavy for a kit of this size. The beetle car photo is only seen on the front of the box, the back of the box is just the typical warning and where the kit is made. Opening the kit and you are greeted with the instruction booklet.
The instruction booklet, It is printed on semi glossy paper.
The instruction booklet shares a short description of the designer.
The parts and in numbered packs! This set is broken down into 3 separate modules, so bags are labeled from 1 – 3.
Some special mentions on the bricks.
The finished beetle
Size Comparison with the F40
The set took close to 4 hours to complete. I had no problems with the brick quality and found them to be very easy to fix up. Bricks assembled did not warp or had issues joining up with one another. I did not have any missing parts however had a wrong piece added on to the box, but it is a common piece so no major issues finding a replacement.
Generally this set is not for daily play as the front and back bumper areas are prone to having parts pop out or dropping off even when handling gently. This is expected as some parts are only held on with just a 1×1 stud.
All in all a great experience fixing up this car and a great model to add to another car collection at a decent price.
