Default 1/16 Ford GPA

Keep a lookout for this 1/16 RC Ford GPA to arrive soon on the market to follow the Schwimmwagon. Not sure if Torro or another brand will offer outside of China.

And as with their Schwimmwagon, I couldn't think of a more prefect candidate for 1/6.

This is very good news, Does this mean that someone is designing a 1/16 DUKW ? It would certainly open my pocketbook.

Herrmill, is it 1/16 or 1/6, assume 1/16? Either way I like it too.

Looks kinda like 1/6 ROC hobby jeep with amphibious body. That would be a hoot!

A motorized RC DUKW in 1/16 would be fun, as would Schwimmywagon.

TheTaigen 1/16 r/c Schwimmwagen is already available from www.rctank.de for 200 Euros plus postage.

KY shows 1/16. Am hoping somebody followed with same in larger scale. I was told in 2019 that would be the case for the Schwimmwagon but haven't heard anything since.

If this goes the same way as the schwimmwagen you'll have to order it from Europe, and add $75 in shipping.

It's cool looking, but does it actually work and for how long? Already been disappointed by Torro on several occasions so I won't be an early adopter on this one.

I still haven't picked up the schwimmwagen, mainly because so many guys don't seem to like it. It hasn't gotten very good reviews. I'll probably do the same thing with this model, and wait until some of my friends get them and see how they like them before I spend money on it. Torro has a pretty good reputation for tanks, but the rest of their stuff really hasn't been all that great, from what I can see.

Yeah, that's a nice one and a must have. Someone ring the bell when it's ready!

Motion RC will probably offer since they carry Torro's line.

I'll see one up close next weekend when my son's classmate brings his to play with us. I know another who already got one & he's quite satisfied with it.

I think i know a person with a dukw designed ready for printing............................. hahahaha
I have a hull on my shelf aswell ready for me to add bits to it, when i ever get a chance. 1/16 aswell, designed to be amphibious and offroad. Seem to be missing the important thing at moment which is time! doh!

This GPA looks good, i was asked to do that aswell somepoint, but looks like i needn't bother now. Its cool to see these models come to the market
