Yes, but there is lot of the work to seal the axles in this case. One German modeller made brilliant work with such model - he made it 4x4 and floating, too... 8O 8O 8O

I can imagine....especially with all the RC gear in it....but dang...all Volkswagens should float lol...With that said...I don't think mine will float either ...and I'll be doing a beetle :'(
