Here is my Ryefield Models' 1/35 scale Volkswagen Typ 82E.
This is a really nice kit - well detailed and excellent fit throughout.
Just about the only thing I didn't like was the vinyl tyres, so I bought a set of the brand new MacOne resin wheels to replace them.
I also added a Hauler roof rack enhanced with plastic strio and angle; a speaker and a couple of suitcases from Plus Model for the roof; and replacement resin wheels from MacOne (which are a major improvement).
The vehicle is finished as a Propaganda-Kompanie 691 car attached to Panzergruppe 1 advancing through Ukraine in 1941.
I also added a three-figure PK set from Bravo 6.
Construction and painting will be covered in detail in Issue 166 of Model Military International magazine, and Bruce Culver has written a fascinating accompanying Think Tank reference piece on the VW Beetle development and WWII usage.
Thanks to Ryefield Models for the sample
