With a set with just 200 components, of course, we don’t need any construction phases and can complete the 39 construction steps in one go. Even if the booklet is smaller than usual, it contains a printed tabletop map and the parts list.


The first few construction steps do not differ from the predecessor, but at the latest with the installation of the seats we see a clear difference. They even thought of folding backrests.

As a floating car, of course, you don’t need any doors through which water could penetrate. Instead, there are large handles and printed panels. Then we build the stern with the small, swiveling propeller and attach the 5 wheels. The 5th wheel on the car is of course the spare wheel on the hood.

Finally, we build various details on the model. In contrast to its predecessor, the new version is also armed with a machine gun.


I don’t just like the color better than the old model. The many details also make the successor to the swimming car a small, very chic model.
