After building the 1/6 Dragon Kubel, I was pretty excited with the Schwimmwagen, and the quality of the kit and improvements Dragon introduced a couple of years after the Kubel release, really surprised me.
This article aims at offering my view about this kit construction, adding some improvements I considered necessary so as to make a worthy scale model.Even, many are on service today in some third world countries, and until a few years ago, in Europe, they were seeing action in the former Yugoslavia.Among all the versions developed, this accomplished by the Egyptian, is the one that seems more attractive to me.Here you’ll have typical indications for the most experienced modelers but very useful for newcomers or for those about to take their first steps into scale model cars.In spite that this kit is simple, it’s very important to follow the instructions to avoid unexpected surprises.By Mario Covalski Building the M4A1E8 Sherman IDF service RC scale My liking for the Sherman started 25 years ago when I built the first version of the Tamiya M4 RC kit.
