Bucket Seat Car

Here are some images of Tamiyas 1/16 scale Volkswagen Kubelsitzwagen (bucket seat car) or Kubelwagen for short. This vehicle was the standard "jeep" for the Germans during World War Two. It was so rugged and reliable in fact that it was was produced well into the late sixties and seventies. The model itself is of typical Tamiya quality. All parts fit well and the instructions supplied good information, no complaints.

I assume this is what the VW "thing" was based on?

Actually it was based on the VW Bug.
