Tamiya 1/48 Schwimmwagen Type 166
The Tamiya 1/48 German Schwimmwagen Type 166 is a plastic model kit in the Tamiya 1/48 Military Plastic Model Kits. This plastic kit requires paint and glue to complete.
Designed by Dr Ferdinand Porsche, the amphibious Schwimmwagen was used by the German land forces, paratroopers and engineering corps during WWII, fulfilling both reconnaissance and liaison duties. Capable of both 2 and 4 wheel drive, the Schwimmwagen was widely respected for its ability to manoeuvre on a variety of difficult terrain. Featuring a high-set exhaust pipe and a rear mounted 25hp air-cooled 4-cylinder 1,130cc engine, the Schwimmwagen could reach top speeds of up to 80km/h on land and 10km/h in water. Propelled in the water by a screw propeller, which was easily raised above the rear engine deck when driven on dry land, steering whilst in the water was done just like on land, using the front wheels as rudders. Mass-produced from 1942, 14,276 type 166 Schwimmwagen were produced by the end of 1944.
