Was the Schwimmer made from steel or aluminium?
Want to make sure before I start weathering.
Thanks in advance.

VW166 Schwimmwagen bodies were made from pressed steel by Ambi Budd and they do rust, considerably. But in a wartime context I doubt you would notice much as its would normally get a repaint every year (if it lasted that long). The area most prone to wear is the seam that runs along the top of the driver/passenger area. In places this could be shiny from crew access and exit.
