Volkswagen Type 82E Staff Car

  1. Description

    One of the many vehicles employed by the German army in WWII was the Volkswagen Type
    82E. This automobile combined a sedan body with a Kubelwagen chassis for excellent running
    performance on rough terrain. Model can be combined with other MM series vehicles or 1/48
    scale aircraft, such as one of Tamiya"s Focke-Wulf, Messerschmitt or Dornier type planes, for
    impressive military dioramas.
    Entering production just prior to the start of WWII in 1938, more than 20 million models of the
    Volkswagen "Beetle" had been built by 2003. Known during the war as the Kdf wagen, the VW
    came in 3 types: Type 60 civilian sedan, military Type 82E, which featured the Kubelwagen
    chassis and a sedan body, and military 4WD vehicle Type 87. As many as 546 models of the
    Type 82E were built between 1941 and 1946. Featuring road clearance 75mm higher than the
    civilian model, the Type 82E offered improved driving performance. The Volkswagen Type 82E
    was used as a staff car by many German military and government officials.
