I always wondered why the German Bundeswehr needed thousands of VW type 181s. Honestly, you don't want to go to war in these cars. They offer no protection, have very limited off-road capabilities, have little space capacity and aren't really fast. So not usefull on the farthest-most forward positions. But at the rear they could be useful, as personnel transporter or courier. Nowadays these type of cars aren't used anymore in the modern armies, but in the sixties and seventies these vehicles were used in many European armies. And Volkswagen was not alone with their type 181!

From straight across the Atlantic: a few plastic Things (Alsi, Impala and Strombecker). Not checked yet but with those bright colors, I bet these must glow in the dark!

Can't tell you much about this Mexican car. It has had a conversion done to look as an old type 166 Schwimmwagen but I don't know if it is capable to take a dive in the water. It looks good, imho.
