    By 1:1 I mean the real thing. Also the museum does have a large collection of aircraft, mostly WWII but the subject this week is vehicles such as the ones I posted last night.
    Starting off is the rather bizarre Kettenkrad. A tracked motorcycle. Worked well in WWII but no one bothered to copy it or use it after WWII.
    Next is a pair of motorcycles with side cars. I am hoping to get the Ultimate Soldier version of this for my 1:6 Germans.
    #3 is the Kubelwagen which was later known as the thing. Put a different body on it and it is a VW bug.
    Last is the aquatic VW Bug the Schiwmnwagen. They should have released this commercially it would have been a lot of fun. It's a VW bug with no doors (thus watertight) and a propeller. Would have sold better than The Thing.

      I like those old side valve BMW engines in the sidecar bikes.
      Apart from their quirkiness I like that these vehicles were all purpose built.
      Their German names are also quite cool.

      bb2 you will be styling on your island.

      Thank you very much racer4four. Yes the Germans have fun names.

      The authorities saw the error of their ways and let pubs open today ! They actually tried prohibition the 1st of lockdown. That lasted less than a week ! LOL ! At least I now know that I'm just a social drinker. Cheers ! I might add, that I'm impressed with how fast they acted here in SXM.

      TI went down the hill got a Bloody Mary then couldn't find a place for dinner because everything shut down in case of riot. Now I am home and have some defense.
