The Schwimmwagen is an iconic vehicle of WWII, produced in more than 15000 units,is the most numerous mass-produced amphibious vehicle in history being destined to most of the fronts where the German army fought except for the African’s. It can be seen from the classic Panzer grey and many other camouflages over dark yellow as well as on winter camouflages.


To reproduce this mythic vehicle, I used one of the first kits of this new brand Hero Model kits. It’s a very simple kit easy to build where the rear vent grilles stand out cause are very well machined. No doubt is a nice kit to enjoy with the painting stage which I’ll share with you in this article.


The following images show the assembled model ready for painting, there were no visible fir problems, except for several fragile parts that obliged me to be very careful when handling the model. It was built out of the box.
