Tamiya 1/48 German Schwimmwagen Type 166 - my 3rd AFV

For my third build I decide to try this one, I found it at yet another Model Shop in Birmingham while Mr S was Tank shopping... Such a fantastic idea and seemingly successful, working in many different areas, over 1400 being built and used:

 

Now for the obligatory starter photos: 

 

Firstly the box - great box art:

Have decided to paint it grey - having watched Stix painting his last Panzer...

The grossdeutschland scheme isn't that scary, honest.

I would be more afraid of doing a convincing all-grey scheme than the camo actually Mrs. Stix, nice subject :thumbsup:
