Jeeps/Kubelwagen/Schwimmwagen in 1/18 scale

Post by pickelhaube » Thu Jan 19, 2012 7:28 am

Hey Guys,

The 21st Cent Jeep is selling for well over $100. I forget the name buy there is another new Jeep out that has a lot more detail that is selling for $100+.

At this price one would have to think twice before they start modifying and expensive model.

So what if you had a resin copy of the 21st ? If you mod that there would be nothing to lose.

So would you guys spend $100+ for a resin copy Jeep with a modification ?

well both Solido and Gates make 1/18 jeeps and they are still fairly easy to find for well under $100.

The Kubel might be a better thing to copy.

Not for a Jeep, but how about the amphibious Seep?

If guys want you to make a Jeep, how about an armored Jeep or a SAS desert Jeep?

My 2 cents.

Any more thoughts on the Kuble ? I am not sure if their were a lot of variants on that,

Does anybody make a Shwimwagon ( spell ? ) in 1 /18 th ?

Any interest in that ?

As far as the Jeep goes I was thinking of the gun shield with the twin bazookas.

And the SAS. Of course you have the fallow me Jeeps as well as the rail road jeep.

Matthew, I have a 1/16 Schwimmwagen kit made by Edward...(looks great with my FOV 1/16 Tigers)...would love to see one in 1/18...I still have the instructions that are quite detailed and can scan/send them if you want.
The sign of a great model is that one’s eye is not drawn to any one feature, yet one can study it for hours and continually find something new.

A Schwimmwagen would be a great choice, of course you have to make sure enough people were on board for it, I'm hoping you can get to the 251 mod first :D, that is one I will have to have 8)

I'd be up for the Kubel or the Jeep, closest I've come to a good jeep is the PTE Mutt.

I'd just want a plain jane one with a .30cal or maybe an SAS one.

Schwimmwagen would be interesting to me... Ihave a jeep and a Kubel, and I know not everyone does, but it's not like they don't exist in one way or another... A Schwimmwagen is only in 1/16 so I'd be much more interested in small stuff if it's new.

I would be totally in for a Schwimmwagen. That is one of those smaller German vehicles I have wished for in 1:18 for a long time.

Matthew, if were you I would take down my email address. The roving bots will grab it and spam the heck out of your account.

I'm interested in the schwimmwagen, but would like to have an idea of the price tag first.
