Steyr 1500A 1/18

Just found this amazing item on AliExpress.

I'm not that well known in German vehicles, but has anyone in here looked at this and possibly tested it??
Have been thinking about the idea of ​​a US taken over Kübelwagen but maybe this could be an option too? Is it even one the Germans used in Frankring/Holland??

Who cares about accuracy or correct time period?! I'm getting one just for the "big torsion treasure chest"!

It's 1/18. And it's real. Some German guy already bought it.

On the box it says 1/16, but I can see it also says 1/18 elsewhere

It looks a bit small and the quality is certainly not super good either. Think I'll keep looking for a Kübelwagen from either Asistam or the old one from Tamiya

I got one, just for schlitz and giggles... if anything the €70 I paid for the upgraded version is not bad, might use it as a donor for another project if I don't like it.

I managed to see one working. It has 4 wheel drive and steering, which is super fun... but the sound is horrible, it plays a super loud blinker sound when turning, and a beep while driving backwards.

Ah, Rad: that is the U.S. required OSHA (Oh-shah: Occupational Safety and Health Administration) backup beeper. Someone may have misunderstood that the regulation applies only to 1:1 vehicles. :haha:
