If you have a Ribeirinho chassis, you can put a Wiking L-Af top on it.

But this is not a real Ribeirinho model!

If you take an L-C top, it doesn't fit properly on the Ribeirinho chassis.
The upper part has to be widened in the area of ​​the bumper webs.

I will not do that with a Wiking model.

If I had a recast, (possibly with air pockets), I could make a transparent oval beetle.
In my opinion, it would not be a real Ribeirinho Beetle.

Great comparison shots. It is clear what the ancestry is for the Ribeirinho models.
