I saw a photo in a book once of the field testing on this particular VW vehicle. The coolest thing I remember about it was the roller that it had in the bumper(kinda like some of the half track fielded). But it was much smaller , really wouldn't even notice it at first glance. It used the roller so that it would roll its front end through the steep parts of a ditch or trench fording. It wasnt connected to the bumper thats shown on the scale model it was like a roller on the chasis without a bumper at all. I will deffinatly try to find that photo.
