Revell 1:35 - German Staff Car Type 82E - Plastic Model Kit #03247

The German Staff Car Type 82, also known as Volkswagen Kübelwagen, was a light combat vehicle developed by Ferdinand Porsche and produced by Volkswagen during World War II for the needs of the German armed forces.

The first prototype designed in 1938 was designated Type 62. Due to its light weight and strong off-road characteristics, the vehicle was approved for further development. In 1939 first pre-production models were put to the test during the invasion of Poland. In general, the vehicle performed well on the battlefield, however some changes were required. The improvements concerned the lowest speed - it was reduced from 8 km/h to 4 km/h. The new version was named Type 82. 

The Type 82 extensive production started in 1940 and lasted till the end of the war. A few modified models appeared during that period including Type 82E. It had the traditional Volkswagen Beetle body instead of the box-shaped standard one. Also, the Type 82E was powered with the air-cooled flat 4-cylinder engine. 

By the end of the production in 1945, over 50 thousand Kübelwagen vehicles were built. Type 82 is considered one of the most useful and dependable vehicles of WWII.
