Apparently Mike Scholer has made himself a good
business out of reproducing German WWII hardware, to
include Armored Cars, a Krupp Protze and according to
his webpage, is working on tanks.

There are several repro 222 armored cars built on a VW
bus chassis, as well as Kubel cars made by a company
in New Mexico. There are some Germans in Kansas who
have built a repro Stoer car as well.

My favorite repro armored vehicle was the cheapest.
Dave Fornell of Chicago blew up on his copy maching
pictures of a Mk II Panzer to life size, printed them
and pasted them on a board so you have a 2D panzer.

I contemplated getting one of these but in the end it
just seems like a bad investment over's only
value is in reenacting and very little in collecting
unless it is very well done.
