Product Description

This unique amphibious vehicle is loaded with detail, something that this scale allows to an impressive degree. The 1:6 scale model includes an accurately molded rear-mounted propeller, which can be swung from its stowed to its operational position. This means the vehicle can be displayed either traversing land or swimming in water. The steering mechanism is fully workable too. For those connoisseurs of German WWII military vehicles and 1/6 scale models, this Schwimmwagen is set to become an icon itself.

While the American Willys Jeep was one of the most iconic vehicles of WWII, on the German side the Volkswagen Type 166 Schwimmwagen (literally “swimming/floating car”) is also very famous. In fact, it’s the most widely produced amphibious car in history, with upwards of 15,000 produced from 1941-44! The 4x4 Schwimmwagen features a tub-like body that was necessary in order to render it waterproof, while the engine and mechanicals were taken from the VW Type 86 Kübelwagen. The Type 166 was fitted with a screw propeller on a swinging arm at the rear of the body to give it forward propulsion, while steering in water was accomplished via the front wheels. Weighing only 910kg, the Schwimmwagen could achieve amphibious speeds of up to 11km/h.
