How does a 1/16 German car sound... like a Kubelwagen or the Schwimmwagen?

Or, drive to the local Hobby Lobby for that 1/14 JEEP?

I might be in with a Trumpy UAZ 469 or a Revell Mercedes Wolf.

Jeff,

I didn't know there was a 1/16 kit out there. Who makes it and what's it called?

By the way, anyone have any great ideas for a ribbon? I don't want to make it too Jeep specific since I've been encouraging other vehicles as well.

Could be in on this - investigating PPA (Popski's Private Army) jeeps at the moment. I'd like to do Popski's own jeep with the .50s front and rear............

Are you doing a desert jeep or Europe?
I'm thinking basic jeep with extra guns, ammo and personal gear. The European jeeps don't seem to have been loaded so heavily, probably because raids were shorter and resupply easier.

In lieu of any other ideas, how does this look?

I know it's a Jeep, but at this size it's fairly anonymous but still obviously a small vehicle. What do you all think?

Italy 1945. I have gear and extra .50s from LSA, some 3D printed jerry-cans and doing a bit of scratch work for brackets, mounts, etc. Popski didn't mount the second .50 until late in Italy I believe. The second jeep has the more usual .30/.50 combo.

I'll be in but with a Kubelwagen or Schwimmwagen. Depends which one turns up on ebay first as I need a couple of Kubels anyway.
