    Hi guys :), i have be interesed and i stated in make a car based on VW Beetle for Beamng.drive,
    and will be called the ETK Mk78-Series!
    Name of the car may be chaged in the future if i make a better name.

    General info of this vehicle (still in wip):
    ETK Mk78-Series is basically a affordable and economy car, not much that i can say because im still working on the lore of it.

    Status of the vehicle's progress:
    Model: still in progress
    Jbeam: not started
    Configs: not started
    Textures: started but only for the headlamps (texture for the headlamps was got from autobello)

    Here some photo of the progress.

    The model (the model was made by me):

    And here the Polwflow Photos (Polwflow may be kinda wrong but is still in wip):

    screenshot4.png

    screenshot1.png
    Here some of technical infos of this vehicle:
    Layout: Rear-engine, rear-wheel-drive.
    Engines: 1000 cc H4, 1100 cc H4, 1200 cc H4 , 1300 cc H4 , 1500 cc H4 and 1600 cc H4.

    Transmissions: 4-speed manual transaxle, 4-speed semi-automatic transaxle, and 3-speed semi- automatic transaxle.
    Price Value: Still in wip.

    What is planned on it (Also some of the planned stuffs is noted in my notepad that i will send when its done):
    -Will be released on repository (so this is why i made a fanmade name using ETK).
    -Will also have prototypes versions (called ETK Prototype Mk78-Series too).
    -Herbie configs planned lol.
    -Some extra accessories and custom cofigs is planned.


    Hope you guys enjoy the progress of my first mod and have a nice day ;).

    nice, i always loved the beetle (espcially because of the number 53(you know who im talking about)), looks coo, tho maybe make it a little less similar to the beetle, or not, its yout choice, but still really cool.

    Finally!! I've been waiting for a high quality not-Beetle ;)

    Can't almost all of the mechanicals of the Autobello be repurposed for this to make things easier? They're pretty close to what a Type 1 had.

    Looks good so far! Just a suggestion, maybe have a few perpendicular edge loops on the door and hood? It would lead to more even polyflow and better deformation.

    I kinda always wanted a Beetle mod that isn't the Herbie mod, with working lights and proper damage and stuff, and more historically accurate with parts from different eras! I agree with some of the others that ETK Type 1 is a better name, maybe even not ETK but some different fictional brand, because ETK is kinda luxurious and doesn't really fit for a brand of cheap cars for people like Autobello or Volkswagen.

    ETK is a luxury brand, but were talking about the 50s, 60s and 70s here, they might of made some cars that have luxury but for a cheaper price, like the A-Series
