hi, i am wonder if it wud work as a first car i was looking at kubelkar sit and was thinking about making my own to use as fmy firstg car woud it be possible too use a vw thing??? my uncle has a thing and it looks alot lik a kube thanks
there are kits to convert a vintage VW bug into a viable Kublewagon and if well done they look and function well. Brutally unsafe as a street daily driver but very very cool. Buying the kit and doing it yourself is expensive, time consuming and not something you're likely to end up using as a daily driver. Your best bet would be to shop and buy one that someone else can take the hit on with regard to time and expense. Used they don't bring much. insure however that everything works and it was assembled properly. VW things have a following all their own and have actually gone up in value over the past decade which means they are no longer and inepensive car. The demensions and shape are way off from a Kublewagon but close enough that they were used in lots of movies. It would kind of be shame to repint one to replicate a KW and though we would find it cool done up that way, odds are it would substantially devalue it.

There's a guy around here who converted a VW Thing to an ersatz Kubelwagen. Basically he replaced the fenders with rounded ones, replaced the bumpers, replaced the lights, and put a fake fuel tank hump and filler in front of the windshield, and painted the whole thing something approximating field gray. Not accurate enough for a stitch Nazi, but it looks pretty good. It's not his everyday vehicle, obviously.

Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
