Schwimm SS Twins
Volkswagen Schwimmwagens Type 166

FIRST IMAGES

Gathering information about Gustav Knittel some months ago, I ran into reference of how much the recon troops liked these amphibian vehicles, so I decided to add a pair for recon troops and for all the other German units that used these vehicles in the last couple of years of the war.

Decided to add a couple of Schwimms to the motorpool with SS plates to be used by the various troops that used this versatile vehicle. These are the built versions from Dragon, repainted and weathered. Also added plenty of equipment inside and topped it off with the AMAZING oars by East Coast Armoury.

Plenty of WIP images of the process in this Picturetrail file:
