Description

The block model of the DUKW amphibious vehicle was developed in a scale of 1:35 as part of the collection published on the occasion of the 80th anniversary of the Allied landings in Normandy and bears the official logo of the organizers of the celebrations to be held in France! Our model consists of 508 high-quality elements and includes prints that do not wear off even during intensive use. The model is equipped with rolling wheels, which significantly increase the attractiveness of the set. A transport vehicle cannot function without a load, and that's why the American soldier driving the amphibious vehicle carries a lot of accessories that every fan of building blocks will be happy to have. A bazooka, Browning, Garand, Thomson and M1 rifles and binoculars are not all. The cargo area also contains crates, barrels, canisters and a spare wheel. The whole set is complemented by two large barbed wires.

The set will certainly delight history and military technology enthusiasts, regardless of their age. Thanks to the intuitive instructions, construction is simple and gives a lot of satisfaction. Build history, piece by piece with COBI, and get ready for the landing! This official set from the D-Day collection is a combination of passion, history and fun!

The DUKW, also known as the "Duck", was an amphibious transport vehicle used primarily by the United States Army during World War II. Its production began in 1942. It was based on the design of a GMC truck, with an additional drive system enabling it to move both on land and in water. It had a characteristic flat bow that made it easier to float. The DUKW was widely used during sea landings, land operations and for transport in flooded areas. Its ability to move on water and land made it a very versatile vehicle in combat conditions. The vehicle was powered by a high-power gasoline engine, which allowed it to reach a maximum speed of approximately 80km/h on land and 10km/h in water. It could accommodate up to 25 people or 2.25 tons of cargo. After the end of World War II, the DUKW continued to be used by American troops in conflicts such as the Korean and Vietnam Wars. It was also exported to other countries and used for civilian purposes such as maritime tourism and rescue. DUKW is regarded as an icon of World War II. Some examples have been preserved as museum exhibits, and the vehicle is still widely used in historical reconstructions and military events.
