This is one of the prototypes that was built pre WW2. There were 44 built in 1938 and this particular one was on display in 1938-39 when AH held a speech to the people in Berlin. found a coloured picture on the net showing that scene and decided to build a 1/24 scale replica of that car using a Gunze 1956 VW as basis.
To make this 1956 VW looking as close as possible to a Typ 38 prototyp I had to:
Scratchbuild the split rear window, the taillights, the dashboard, the inner door-panels and parts of the front axle/suspension Find another steeringwheel, wheels and hubcaps Rebuild the muffler and put a mid-mounted single pipe Remove the two small "grille-ovals" and all chromelists Make a special order for the paint (Wehrmacht grau)
And, here's a link to the whole album showing pictures in progress:
