シュビムワーゲン
 VWキューベルワーゲン82型が生産に入った1940年の夏、ポルシェ設計事務所はドイツ陸軍兵器局と水陸両用小型四輪乗用車の開発契約を結びました。開発当初からキューベルワーゲンの水陸両用車としての潜在能力を認識していたポルシェ教授は、直ちに生産中のキューベルワーゲンと同じホイールベースの2400ミリシャーシを基本とした水陸両用車の設計を開始しました。そして、11月初めには早くも密閉船体形の優れたデザインの試作車.VWシュビムワーゲンA大型(128型)が完成し、すでに生産されていたトリッペル製の水陸両用車などと共にチロル地力やコンスタンス湖地方で走行テストが行われました。テストの結果はオフロードでは少々難点がありましたが、その水陸両用性能は十分に確認されました。主に武装親衛隊や降下猟兵部隊、工兵部隊などにより全戦線で偵察や連絡に使用され、その優れた水陸両用性能、そして四輪駆動による高い悪路走破性から多くの将兵たちの信頼を集めたのです。(タミヤ解説書より)
 The summer in 1940, Porsche design office in it when VWKubelwagen82 forming die was stored in the production made the development contract of the German army arm bureau and the small four wheels motorcar for both the land and water. Porsche professor who recognized the ability to lurk as the amtrack of Kubelwagen from the development first began the design of the amtrack which made a 2400 mm chassis with the wheelbase which is the same as Kubelwagen to be producing basic at once. Then, at the beginning of November, the experimental car.VWSchwimmwagenA large size ( 128 types ) of the design about which the shutting hull form is excellent already was complete and a running test was done in the Tirol real ability and the Constance lake district with the amtrack which is made from already produced Tripper and so on. By the result of the test, the off-road had a few weak points at it but the performance for both the land and water was sufficiently confirmed. Mainly, it was used for the scouting and the contact in all the fronts by the arming groupies and the fall hunt ministry of military affairs corps, the sapper corps and so on and it won public confidence of a lot of officers and men from the performance to run in the performance for both the land and water to be excellent and then the high bad road which depends on the four-wheel drive car.

 しゅびむ3兄弟、完成です。新車ショー仕様にしてみようと思い、プラ板で台を作り、光沢仕上げにしてみました。スーパークリアを初めて使ったんですが、ニスを塗ったみたいにテカテカに・・・・まあキレイ!。いつもババチイ戦車ばっか作ってるんで、たまにはこういうのもエエですね。バックはナウい(死語)デザインで作ってみましたがどでしょ。(2004.6.23完成)
 It is SCHWIMMWAGEN three brothers, a display stand, completion. It thought that it let's attempt to make a new car show specification, it made a stand with plastic board and it attempted to make it glossy finish. It used super clearance for the first time but it is shining in doing the being which was seen which applied varnish. Because it was only a dirty tank, to feel, too, liked it beautifully. The back attempted to be crazy about the design.(2004. 6.23 completion)
