1:35 scale plastic model assembly kit of the Schwimmwagen Type 166 German Truck.
The Volkswagen Beetle, which has been called a German national car, was conceived and designed in 1938 by Dr. Ferdinand Porsche, the originator of the famous sports car manufacturer, "Porsche". The Beetle's excellent features were matchless durability and inexpensiveness. Then, the German Army decided to develop a military vehicle based on this small, tough and inexpensive car.
As a result, several kinds of military vehicles were manufactured for trial. The amphibious Schwimmwagen type 128 was one of them. After further refinements, the vehicle was officially designated the "Schwimmwagen type 166" and mass production began in 1942. Its high-set exhaust pipe at the rear looked quite humorous but of course it was so set in anticipation of the vehicle"s use on the water.
