Special Armour have anounced another variation on the early VW theme with a 1:35 styrene/resin kit of of the Typ 825.
Volkswagen Typ 825 Pick Up

Ferdinand Porsche, a German automotive engineer, developed his famous “people’s car”, the VW Beetle on direct Adolf Hitler’s impulse. During the Second World War, the vehicle was produced in large numbers and in various verisons and modifications, for both the military and the civil users. The Beetle had either two (rear) wheel drive or even four wheel drive. Besides the civil users, the Beetle saw military service with the Wehrmach, Afrika-Korps, Waffen-SS, the police and state authorities of the Third Reich. In 1941, a pick up version was also built known as the Typ 825. The body of the original Typ 82 version was modified and mounted on a four wheel drive chassis, giving a vehicle for a crew of two and offering a large load area. Later, also a type with a box-shaped superstructure was manufactured under the designation Typ 83.

The rear load area resin parts, photo-etched parts and decal sheet acompany the kit’s styrene parts. The instruction sheet offers two colour schemes, the first being in sand overall, the other having heavy mottles of green and chockolate brown over the standard sand as the vehicle was operated later in the war.


Item #SA35007 is due for release soon - Price: 21.20 Euros

It did not get the nickname "Beetle" until after the war.Just another very common mistake.
