New fr om Roc Hobby are their German 1/ 12 Scalers, the Kommandeurwagen and the Kübelwag en.

The Kübelwagen was simplicity itself. Wi th a two-wheel-drive configuration so successful to co pe with snow, ice and mud, t he vehicle surprised even those in char ge of the development. In some tes ts, it showed even superior handling characteristi cs than some 4x4s. This was d ue to a combination of a lightweig ht chassis and smooth, flat underbody whi ch "surfed" on soft surfaces just li ke a motorized sled, allowing it to foll ow tracked vehicles without much trouble.

KdF-Wagen, kno wn as the people's car while no ne were sold to the people, a ll being requisitioned by the army a nd converted into military vehicles, the mo st famous one being the Kübelwagen. We fe el honored if you already own it in yo ur RC collection. If not, the Type8 2E is a great start to realist ic scale RC models. The Type82E, primari ly offered to senior officers, uses a K dF Wagen body on the exact t he same chassis as the Kübelwagen, a rear-mount ed, rear-drive chassis with a limited-slip differenti al. The post-war civilian version was t he Beetle, which later became world-famous.

*NOW IN STOCK - Extron Oldim an (Laser Cut Kit) *

Coming soon fr om Extron is a new twist on a class ic aircraft!

The Oldiman is a mid-wi ng aircraft based on an ancient mod el that impresses with its easy handli ng and great flight characteristics. The mod el is controlled via 3 axes (rudd er, elevator and aileron). The sophisticated constructi on and an optimal choice of materia ls ensure a very low take-off weig ht with high stability at the sa me time. The model can therefore be flo wn completely uncritically in a wide spe ed range. Aerobatics is just as possib le as slow cruising.

We designed the k it in such a way that ev en beginners and less experiencied model builde rs can build the Oldiman quickly a nd easily.

As with all Extron aircraft mode ls, we have placed great value on quali ty. The wing is in two par ts with a stable connection.

The Oldiman is manufactur ed in our in-house at the Extr on laser factory in Eggenfelden.
