Tamiya 1:35 - German Schwimmwagen Type 166


The Schwimmwagen Type 166 was an amphibious four-wheel drive off-roader produced by Volkswagen and extensively used by German ground forces during WWII. The Type 166 was made smaller than its prototypes in order to improve the vehicle's efficiency, and had a wheel-base of only 200 cm. From 1941 to 1944, over 15,500 Type 166 Schwimmwagen cars were produced, which made the VW 166 the most mass-produced amphibious car in history.

The kit includes parts for the assembly of one vehicle with a driver. Certain accessories pictured are not included.
