My conversion of the Airfix 1/32 Beach Buggy (A02412V) to a four-seat, six-wheeler.

Neat! 8)

But why do I get this strange "porn" vibe from it? ???

"Porn" vibe I can understand. "Strange "Porn" vibe" is beyond my comprehension!  :-[

Strange, as in odd or unexpected, maybe unusual, but certainly not weird or deviant. ;)

That looks great! Maybe good for running down the beach, but may get caught up on sand dunes. The woman must be a ton of fun on airplanes... sitting in the seat ahead of you. Is her name "Karen"?

I think that a Beach Buggy like this would go as near the sand as the girl's bikini would get near the sea!
