Notes from our tech department:
This is a 1/35 Plastic Military Miniature German Pkw.K1 Kubelwagen Type 82
Afrika-Corps by Tamiya. For ages 10 and up.

Fathered from the designs of Dr. Ferdinand Porsche, the Kubelwagen Type 82
served the German military extensively during WWII. The Kubelwagen was
chosen as the perfect vehicle for service in North Africa as it required no
onboard cooling system, was easy to operate, and could be quickly modified to
operate in the desert environment. Before the epic struggle of WWII came to a
close, 51,000 Kubelwagen vehicles had been produced for military use.


Plastic pieces attached to sprues and molded in tan.
Ready to assemble precision model kit.
Unassembled, highly detailed German soldier included.
Features realistically reproduced hooks, front hood, and rear panel.
Comes with wide-tread ballon tires that were specially installed to
make the vehicle more capable in a desert environment.
Desert survival accessories include a spare tire, a shovel, a folding
windshield, and a canopy.
Waterslide decals.
