Revell Germany 1/144 Apollo Saturn V

At 0932hrs on 16th July 1969 the giant Saturn V rocket was launched from the launchpad at Cape Canaveral on the most important journey in the history of mankind. The giant Saturn V consisted of three main stages, was 110 meters (361 ft) high and weighed 3,000 tons. It could carry a payload of 50 tons and reach a speed of 11.2 km/second (25050 mph). The 394,000 km ( 244,800 mile) journey to the moon took 72 hours. After achieving low Earth Orbit, the upper assembly with the Apollo Capsule received a final push from the third stage rocket thrusters to achieve the speed required for its flight to the moon. Later the Apollo module broke away from the rocket, turned and pulled the Lunar Module from its protective covering. Coupled together like this, the combination eventually reached the Moon and entered Lunar orbit. After several Lunar orbits the Lunar Module with the astronauts N. Armstrong and E. Aldrin on board separated from the Command Module in which only the astronaut M. Collins remained. With two firings of the retro rockets the Lunar Module commenced its final approach into the Sea of Tranquillity . This historic event will be remembered for eternity.

Airfix 1/72 Higgins Boat LCVP D-Day

The Landing Craft, Vehicle, Personnel (LCVP) or Higgins Boat was one of the most vital pieces of Allied naval equipment of the Second World War. Used not only during Operation Overlord and the invasion of occupied France, but also throughout American naval operations in the Pacific, proving to be particularly useful during the operations at Okinawa and Iwo Jima. With a shallow draught and full-width bow ramp it was able to offload its cargo and leave the beach in just 3 to 4 minutes.

Airfix 1/144 Apollo Saturn V Rocket

The Saturn V was the largest operational launch vehicle ever produced standing over 363 feet high with its Apollo Spacecraft payload, it produced over 7.5 millionpounds of thrust at lift-off. It enabled the crew of Apollo 11 and subsequent Apollo crews to leave the pull of the Earth's gravity and reach the moon.
Developed at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center under the direction of Wernher von Braun, was the largest in a family of liquid propellant rockets that solved the problem of getting to the moon. The three stage rocket was taller than a 36-story building and was the largest, most powerful rocket ever built. A total of thirty-two Saturns of all types were launched; with not one failing. Thirteen of these were Vs. With a cluster of five powerful engines in each of the first two stages and using high-performance liquid hydrogen fuel for the upper stages, the Saturn V was one of the great feats of the 20th century engineering. 
Inside, the rocket contained three million parts in a labyrinth of fuel lines, pumps, gauges, sensors, curcuits, and switches - each of which had to function reliably. The first manned Saturn V sent the Apollo 8 astronauts into orbit around the moon in December 1968. After two more missions to test the Lunar Module, in July 1969 a Saturn V launched the crew of Apollo 11 to the first manned landing on the moon.

Dragon 1/35 SdKfz 7 8(t) Halftrack & 88mm Flak 36/37 Gun

As its latest Combo Kit featuring convenient and appealing vehicle pairings, Dragon is offering a German Sd.Kfz.7 halftrack towing an 8.8cm FlaK 36/37 gun. The rather iconic Sd.Kfz.7 was originally designed to tow both the 8.8cm FlaK gun and the 15cm sFH.18 howitzer. It could accommodate up to 12 soldiers of a gun crew, as well as a limited amount of ammunition. Turning to the FlaK.37, this famous 8.8cm weapon could be used in both the antiaircraft and antitank roles.
Dragon’s release of an Sd.Kfz.7 halftrack towing an s.FH.18 15cm howitzer (Item No. 6918) was very successful, prompting the offering of this natural companion – the same halftrack but this time towing the 8.8cm FlaK 36/37 gun. Of course, these items are available as separate kits, but this superb combination gives modelers everything they need in a single box and at an even more competitive price than buying them singly. Given that both the German halftrack and the gun were widely used in every theater throughout WWII, there is virtually no limit to what the imaginative modeler can do with this combination.

Dragon 1/35 M4 Sherman "Composite Hull" ~ Smart Kit

Tanks played a decisive role throughout the bloody battles of the Pacific, and the most important tank for the Allies was the M4 Sherman. One variant of the Sherman commonly found in the Pacific Theater of Operations (PTO) was the so-called “composite hull”. This referred to some M4 Shermans that featured a cast front hull mated to a welded rear hull.
Dragon's 1/35 M4 Sherman “Composite Hull” PTO has now been enhanced and released anew. The key difference is a set of brand new T48 track links produced under the Magic Tracks label. These T48 tracks are accurately engineered and beautifully injection molded. This kit is the culmination of intensive research, allowing modelers to conveniently depict an M4 Sherman tank taking part in the Pacific Theater of Operation.

Canfora Publishing - The Soviet Army on Parade 1946-1991 (Hardback)

A display of Cold War power
Undoubtedly our most ambitious project to date, this second volume in a three volume series describes the tanks, armoured vehicles, artillery and rocket systems paraded by the Soviet Army on Red Square from 1946 until the last Soviet era parade in November 1990. From the massed tank displays of the immediate post-war parades, to the introduction of strategic rocket systems during the “Khrushchev” years, all the weapons displayed on Red Square during the Cold War are described in detail.
The background military history of the Soviet Union during the Cold War years and the philosophy involved in the weapon developments is also related, building the overall picture of Soviet parades as a projection of Soviet military might.
Did you know?
– For 100 years since the Russian Revolution in 1917, the Soviet Union and now the Russian Federation has demonstrated its latest military tanks and military vehicles on Red Square for Russian domestic and foreign consumption.
– The annual May and November military parades were in 1946 joined by a “Tankman’s Day” parade, celebrating the day Red Army forces crossed into Axis territory in 1944.
– Soviet tanks such as the T-54 had their public Red Square debut almost a decade after they entered service, while some rocket systems constantly displayed never entered service.
– One of the best parade watching locations in Moscow was the former US Embassy building, past which the parades moved onto Red Square, while the British Embassy overlooked the return journey from Red Square.
– The start of the 1960 parade was delayed while Khrushchev decided whether or not to order the shooting down of an American U-2A USAF/CIA reconnaissance aircraft flying over Siberia.
336 pages. 500+ photos. Hardback.

Roden 1/48 Arado Ar68E Aircraft

The Arado Ar 68E is a famous Luftwaffe biplane fighter adopted in 1937. The aircraft had a classic mixed biplane design of those times and good performance and in no way inferior to another well-known Heinkel He51B aircraft, which at that time was the main fighter of the German Air Force. Ernst Udet the famous ace of World War I played a significant role in the fate of Ar 68, he headed the Luftwaffe fighter at that time and saw the prospect of a new aircraft. Serial production began in 1936 and continued for the next two years. Several aircraft of this type were deployed as part of the Condor Legion to Spain, where they were successfully used as ground support aircraft. In Luftwaffe, the operation of the Ar 68E was relatively short-lived, as the era of new- generation fighter and monoplanes was approaching. Almost all Ar 68Es in 1939 were transferred to the training units, but some were used as night fighters until the end of 1941.

Roden 1/72 WWI LGOC B Type British Bus

Type B Bus is an omnibus (bus) created in the UK in the early twentieth century to provide passenger transportation. The bus could carry up to 34 passengers exclusively on seating on two levels, since they were not allowed to be transported in a standing position. In total, about 2,500 buses were produced and used on many specially designed inland routes. The advent of omnibuses created significant competition for ancient transport, which consisted of horse drawn carriages (cabs) and soon omnibuses completely pushed them out of the streets of London. Since the outbreak of World War I, a large number of these vehicles have been requisitioned to the army to accelerate the transfer of troops from the rear to the immediate war zones.

Osprey Publishing - Duel: German Flak Defences vs Allied Heavy Bomber 1942-45

Since the end of World War II, the strategic bombing of Germany has inspired numerous studies, countless books and several documentary films, and it is not surprising. With more than one million tons of bombs dropped, close to 300,000 civilians killed, 700,000 wounded and in excess of 3,500,000 industrial and residential structures destroyed, the Allied bomber offensive was industrial war on a grand scale. The air battle that raged over Germany has often been described as a battle between Allied and German fighters but what has been frequently missed by historians on all sides is the impact of German anti-aircraft defences (flak). Though often dismissed as ineffective and a waste of valuable material and personnel, the German flak arm made a major contribution to the defence of the Third Reich - at least half of the American aircraft shot down over Germany fell to flak, and according to the RAF Official History, it was estimated that flak accounted for 1229 of 3302 aircraft lost by Bomber Command between 1942 and April 1945. Additionally, the strategic role of flak extended beyond simply shooting down aircraft - its other, more important task was to force bombers to drop their ordnance sooner or from a higher altitude, thus reducing bombing accuracy.
Both these roles are explored in depth in this detailed study of the German flak defences and of their adversaries, the Allied heavy bombers. Containing full-colour illustrations including cockpit scenes and armament views, this is the definitive guide to the much-overlooked conflict between Allied planes and German anti-aircraft defences.

Osprey Publishing - Duel: Panzerfaust vs Sherman European Theater 1944-45

In the summer of 1944, across the battlefields of Normandy, US tanks were confronted with a dangerous challenge: the mobile and deadly Panzerfaust and Panzerschreck anti-tank weapons wielded by the German infantry. Having only occasionally encountered such weaponry before, the US tankers were ill-equipped to defend against this kind of attack, and the threat only increased as the summer wore on.
This Duel title follows the technological battle for dominance that ensued, as the US Army devised new ways to defend against the threat posed by the German shaped-charge projectiles. From the addition of sandbags and spare tracks to individual tanks made by anxious crews on the ground to the large-scale programmes put together by the US armies, the book explores the implementation and effectiveness of the various tactics employed by the tank crews, as well as the technology behind the anti-tank weapons wielded by their German adversaries. Drawing on first-hand accounts from the men on the ground, this illustrated title examines the evolving trial of strength between US armour and innovative German anti-tank weaponry in the climactic months of World War II in Europe.

Osprey Publishing - Air Campaign: Ploesti 1943 The Great Raid on Hitler's Romanian Oil Refineries

Operation Tidal Wave was one of the boldest and most controversial air raids by the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF). At the time, the Romanian Ploesti oil fields produced about a third of all Axis oil, and was Germany's single most important fuel source. In the summer of 1943, the USAAF decided to stage a major raid on Ploesti from air bases in Libya. The resulting Operation Tidal Wave raid on 1 August 1943 was one of the costliest to date, losing 53 aircraft, about a third of the starting force. Of the more than 150 bombers that took part in the raid, only 88 B-24s returned to Libya, 55 of which were damaged. On the other hand, of the 17 Medals of Honor awarded to US soldiers and airmen from Pearl Harbor in 1941 to D-Day in 1944, 5 were awarded to pilots of the Tidal Wave mission in recognition of their extraordinary performance. Although undoubtedly bold and heroic, the mission had questionable results. Initial assessments argued that the mission caused 40% of the refinery capacity at Ploesti to be lost but subsequent studies concluded that the damage was quickly repaired and that output had exceeded August levels within a month.
This new study examines the raid in detail, exploring the reasons why its dubious success came at such a high price. Supported by maps, diagrams, and full-colour artwork including battlescenes and bird's-eye views, this is the full story of the audacious Ploesti raid of 1943.

Osprey Publishing - Campaign: The Glorious First of June 1794

As 1794 opened, Revolutionary France stood on a knife's edge of failure. Its army and navy had been shaken by the revolution, with civil war and famine taking its toll on their resources. Seeking to bring a revitalizing supply of food from its Caribbean colonies and the United States, the French government decided to organize a massive convoy to bring the New World's bounty to France. However, in order to succeed in their mission, the French Navy would have to make a deadly crossing over the North Atlantic, an ocean patrolled by the Royal Navy, the most powerful navy force in the world, whose sailors were eager to inflict a damaging defeat on Revolutionary France and win their fortune in prize money.
Illustrated throughout with stunning full-colour artwork, this is the full story of the only fleet action during the Age of Fighting Sail fought in the open ocean, hundreds of miles from shore. Taking place over the course of a month, the inevitable battle was to be a close-run affair, with both sides claiming victory. To the French, it was le Bataille du 13 prairial, a notable day in their new, scientific Revolutionary calendar. For the British, it was the Glorious First of June.

Osprey Publishing - Campaign: The Paraguayan War 1864-70 The Triple Alliance at Stake in LaPlata

The Paraguayan War, also known as the War of the Triple Alliance, was the largest and most important military conflict in the history of South America, after the Wars of Independence, and its only true 'continental' war. It involved four countries and lasted for more than five years, during which Paraguay fought alone against a powerful alliance formed by Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay. This conflict was remarkable in its huge scale and its terrible cost in lives, with the catastrophic human price paid by Paraguay amounting to more than 300,000 men, a loss of some 70% of the country's total population.
The war was a real revolution for the armies of South America, and the first truly modern conflict of the continent. When the war began in 1864, the armies were small, poorly trained and badly equipped semi-professional forces. However, by the time the war ended, most of them had adopted percussion rifles employing the Minié system and new weapons like breech-loading rifles and Gatling machine guns were being tested on the continent for the first time.
This title covers the whole span of the war, from the early days when the conflict primarily involved small columns of a few thousand men seeking each other out in rugged and sparsely inhabited territory, through to the later Napoleonic-style positional battles fought at points of strategic importance. It also explores the unique challenges presented by the humid, subtropical climate, including the devastating impact of disease on the troops.

Osprey Publishing - Campaign: Petsamo & Kirkenes 1944 The Soviet Offensive in the Northern Arctic

This title examines the bitter conflict between two highly tactical armies as they battled across challenging terrain to gain control of strategically significant Northern Finland. On the one side were the invading Soviet troops, hoping to liberate an area full of rich resources and littered with bases that that would enable the arrival of Arctic convoys from Britain. They employed naval infantry in abundance, not only to make amphibious landings to capture strategically significant port facilities, but also on deep outflanking manoeuvres inland. Their opponents were the elite Gebirgsjäger from XIX Gebirgskorps; trained to be self-sufficient and resourceful and equipped with a range of bespoke weaponry, this mountain division was ideally suited to operate in the harsh climate. Combat conditions were unique: the extremely rough terrain, laced with bogs, streams, boulder fields, and large rivers, presented a significant challenge in its own right, even without the added threat of attacks by highly trained soldiers.
This illustrated title tells the story of this unique and bitter struggle in the far North, an epic battle between two elite forces fighting in a demanding environment. With bird's-eye views and maps of key battlefields, this is a comprehensive guide to one of the most challenging campaigns of the Eastern Front.

Osprey Publishing - Vanguard: Russian Battleships & Cruisers of the Russo-Japanese War

This book examines the major warships of the Imperial Russian Navy which participated in the Russo-Japanese War. The focus is on the battleships, coastal defence warships, and cruisers of the Pacific Squadron and Baltic Squadron that fought during the war.
It discusses in detail their design and development between the years of 1885 and 1905, concentrating particularly on battleships and cruisers. The book explores, in depth, the mutually influential relationship between Russian and foreign warship design, as Russia progressed from a reliance on foreign designs and shipyards towards an ability to produce its own influential ships, such as the Novik. The title also outlines the gripping operational history of the Russian warships which participated in the Russo-Japanese war, tracing their activity before and during the combat, as well as the post-war fate of those ships which were bombarded, scuttled, captured, or salvaged.
Packed with contemporary photography and full-colour illustrations, this title offers a detailed and definitive guide to the design, development, and destiny of the Russian warships which battled the Japanese in the Eastern seas.

Osprey Publishing - X-Planes: Douglas D558-1 Skystreak & D558-2 Skyrocket

The six Douglas D-558 research aircraft, built as two variants, were produced for a US Navy and NACA collaborative project to investigate flight in the high subsonic and supersonic regimes and to develop means of coping with the dangerous phenomena of compressibility and pitch-up which had caused many accidents to early jets. Wind tunnels could not provide the necessary data so pilots had to risk their safety in experimental aircraft which, for their time, achieved phenomenal performance.
Both series of D-558 were well-designed, strong and efficient aircraft which enabled test pilots to tackle the unknown in comparative safety. Though delayed by their innovative but troublesome power-plants, and limited by the cost of their air-launched sorties, they went well beyond their original Mach 1 speed objective and continued to generate information that provided design solutions for a whole generation of supersonic combat aircraft. Although the final stage of the D-55 programme, the USN's ‘militarized' D-558-3, never happened, the Navy was able to apply the lessons of the programme to its much more practical combat types such as the F8U Crusader and F3H Demon.
Supported by full-colour artwork including three-view plates of the two D-558 models and a technical view of the D-2 cockpit, this authoritative text offers a comprehensive guide to the record-breaking Navy research craft.

Osprey Publishing - Combat Aircraft: B58 Hustler Units

One of the most dramatic bombers of its day, the Convair B-58 came to epitomise the Cold War power of Strategic Air Command. Introduced only 12 years after the sound barrier was first broken, this iconic plane became the first large long-range supersonic bomber to take to the skies, a feat which had seemed far-fetched only a few years previously. Outstripping its contemporaries in terms of speed, and agile enough to escape most interceptors, the B-58 was a remarkable feat of engineering, setting 19 world speed records and collecting a host of trophies. The first operational bomber capable of Mach 2 at 63,000 feet, it was able to evade hostile fighters and represented a serious threat to targets across the Soviet Bloc.
Supported by contemporary first-hand accounts, photography, and full-colour illustrations, this study explores the history of this ground-breaking aircraft from its conception to its little-known testing for use in the Vietnam War.

Osprey Publishing - Combat: Soviet Partisan vs German Security Soldier Eastern Front 1941-44

The savage partisan war on the Eastern Front during World War II saw a wide variety of forces deployed by both sides. On the Soviet side, civilian partisans fought alongside and in co-operation with Red Army troops and Red Army and NKVD ‘special forces'. On the German side, German Army security divisions, with indigenous components including cavalry, fought alongside SS police and Waffen-SS units and other front-line troops employed for short periods in the anti-partisan role.
In addition to providing the background history of the forces of both sides, this study focuses upon three examples of German anti-partisan operations that show varied success in dealing with the Soviet partisan threat. Notably, it covers a major operation in north-west Russia during the spring of 1943 - Operation Spring Clean - that saw Wehrmacht security forces including local components fighting alongside troops under the SS umbrella against a number of Soviet partisan brigades. During the fighting, German forces even employed captured French tanks from earlier in the war against the partisans.
Featuring specially commissioned artwork and drawing upon an array of sources, this is an absorbing account of the brutal fighting between German security forces and their Soviet partisan opponents during the long struggle for victory on World War II's Eastern Front.

Osprey Publishing - Men at Arms: Armies of the Great Northern War 1700-1720

The Great Northern War was a long series of campaigns in which Russia, linked with several other countries in temporary alliances, confronted and eventually replaced Sweden as the predominant power in Northern Europe. While contemporary with the Duke of Marlborough's pivotal campaigns against France, the Great Northern War was in fact more decisive, since it reshaped the Northern European power balance up to the eve of the Napoleonic Wars.
It began with a series of astonishing Swedish victories lead by King Charles XII, from Denmark to Poland and deep into Germany. But Peter the Great of Russia showed steadfast determination, and Charles overreached himself when he invaded Russia in 1708; the Russians adopted classic 'scorched earth' tactics until they could destroy the Swedish army at Poltava in 1709, one of the most overwhelming victories in history. Nevertheless, Sweden continued to fight, and frequently win, in Germany, Denmark and Norway, until Charles's death in battle in 1718, though the war itself did not conclude until 1721.
This study explores, in detail, the numerous armies and complex alliances engaged in the war for Northern European dominance. Containing accurate full-colour artwork and unrivalled detail, Armies of the Great Northern War offers a vivid insight into the troops which battled for control of the North.

Ammo By Mig - How to Paint with Oils - AMMO Modeling Guide

Oils are one of the most versatile types of paint, offering a greater variety of painting and weathering effects for scale modelling. However, they remain a mystery to many modellers, who only know of a specific technique or even consider oils to be a product exclusively applicable to Fine Arts.
Oil paints offer many advantages when it comes to recreating a wide variety of effects; their much slower drying time compared to other paint mediums and their finely ground pigment allow for the creation of colour gradations, stains, and all kinds of dirt effects on vehicles and figures. However, regular artist oils also have disadvantages when applied to modelling, they have been designed with Fine Arts in mind and thus to be applied on an absorbent canvas substrate, not on scale models.We at AMMO have developed a special type of oils, the Oilbrushers, improved and adapted to scale modelling, featuring less oil and a faster drying time. The oil colours sold by other modelling brands are just regular artists´ oils in a different container, whereas the Oilbrushers offer you a new formulation specially designed to achieve the best results on your models while saving a considerable amount of time.
In addition, many different painting techniques and effects can be created with oils, some of which cannot be made using other mediums. In this book, we are going to show you the huge variety of effects that you can accurately reproduce, with oils in general and Oilbrushers in particular, on all types of models ranging from tanks and aircraft to figures and dioramas. You will learn how to apply the most common techniques such as blending, highlighting and shading, and you will also discover many others that can be used in combination with the standard enamel and acrylic techniques.Our excellent team of master modellers will show you all the secrets of painting with oils through more than 100 pages in a pleasant and easy to follow style with lots of high-quality photos and step-by-step processes. This guide is undoubtedly the compilation you need to master a product as necessary in today´s modelling scene as oil paints.

Squadron Signal Books - F-111 AARDVARK in Action

The F-111, which ultimately proved to be a very capable fighter-bomber for the US and Australian Air Forces, was born out of the desire of Secretary of Defense Robert Strange McNamara to force the USAF and the Navy to use a single aircraft for all tactical missions strike, close air support, air superiority and fleet air defense. The initial effort, called the Tactical Fighter Experimental, or TFX, was based largely on the Air Forces requirements, with a few adaptations to approximate the Navy's desires. The initial Air Force version of the aircraft would be the F-111A, while the Navy variant was the F-111B. Although General Dynamics was the prime contractor, the company had little recent experience in building carrier-borne aircraft, and turned to Grumman as a subcontractor for the assembly and testing of the Navy planes. The F-111 itself, the first production variable wing geometry aircraft, would have a remarkable 30+ year service history. During that time the aircraft was produced in five models, and modified and rebuilt into three additional models. Illustrated with over 200 color and B/W photos. 80 pages

Squadron Signal Books - F6F Hellcat In Action

Jim Sullivan and Charles Scrivner. Expanded Edition with more photos, updated content and 20 extra pages'. During World War II, the United States Navy needed a powerful fighter to counter the Japanese Zero. After their debut in combat in early 1943, Hellcats scored more than 5,000 confirmed kills with a 19-to-1 kill ratio. The folding-wing aircraft were capable of operating from carriers or land. Some were equipped with radar for night combat. The heavily-armed fighters could pack armament including six wing-mounted .50-caliber machine guns, 20mm cannons, wing-mounted rockets and a bomb rack. Flown by both the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps, the aircraft was also employed by the British Fleet Air Arm during World War II. France also made use of the aircraft after the war, employing it during the Indochina conflict in the early 1950s. In American service after the Second World War, remote-controlled versions of the aircraft were used to test atomic bomb blasts and as flying bombs. Illustrated with more than 200 photographs, color profiles, and detailed line drawings. 80 pages.

Squadron Signal Books - F4U Corsair in Action

Updated and expanded with 53 exciting new photographs in 16 all new, additional pages. Bringing to mind the exploits of 'Pappy' Boyington and his 'Blacksheep Squadron' and Tommy Blackburn with the 'Jolly Rogers,' the Corsair is among the most formidable US fighters of World War II. The F4U maintained a kill ratio of 11:1 according to the United States Navy and went on to serve American forces in Korea, holding its own in the early years of the jet age. The Corsair was first conceived as a high-speed, high-altitude fighter for the Navy in 1938 when Chance Vought's design team drew up plans for a fighter with a 1,800 hp engine and a huge 13-foot propeller. The Corsair's famous inverted gull wing design was introduced to allow prop clearance. Handling problems delayed the aircraft's deployment aboard carriers, but Marine Corps pilots quickly took to the powerful, rugged fighter and VMF-124, the first Marine squadron to fly the Corsair in combat, also produced the first Corsair air ace, Kenneth A. Walsh, by the summer of 1943. A total of 12,571 Corsairs were built between 1940 and 1952, most of them by Vought, but hundreds by Goodyear and Brewster as those companies' assembly lines had to be pressed into service to meet soaring demand for the remarkable aircraft. This exhaustive volume surveys the history of the Corsair from its first prototype to the restored warbirds that have continued to delight air show audiences down to the present day. Illustrated with 229 photographs, plus color profiles and detailed line drawings; 80 pages.

Squadron Signal Books - TBF/TBM Avenger In Action

TBF/TBM Avenger In Action. Book by David Doyle. Squadron Signal Books. The Avenger was the foremost Torpedo Bomber in the US Navy's arsenal during WWII. Designed by Grumman as a replacement for the Douglas TBD Devastator, Avenger production began prior to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and it remained in US Navy service until October 1954. Demand for the large torpedo bomber was so strong that General Motor's newly-formed Eastern Aircraft Division was contracted as a second source for the Avenger, ultimately accounting for more than half of the total production. In addition to its obvious use as a torpedo bomber, the Avenger also served as a horizontal bomber, dropping conventional bombs, as well as mines and notably, depth charges, while operating in an antisubmarine role. This all-new edition is filled with 212 vintage photos, 29 of them in color, these are augmented by five color profiles and a like number of detailed line drawings; 80 pages.

Tamiya 1/48 P38F/G Lightning Fighter

This WWII fighter was a daring design with twin booms and a piston engine in each, plus a central nacelle which housed the cockpit and armament (machine guns and cannon in the nose). Introduced in June 1941, the aircraft went on to be used extensively in the Pacific through WWII. The F variant was manufactured from April 1942 onward, and featured pylons for 150-gallon drop tanks to make it capable of longer bombing missions. Later P-38Gs had more powerful engines and could carry bigger 300-gallon drop tanks. The P-38 was used for interception, dive bombing, level bombing, ground attack, night fighting, photo reconnaissance, radar and visual pathfinding for bombers and evacuation missions, and extensively as a long-range escort fighter when equipped with drop tanks under its wings.

Dragon 1/35 Sd.Kfz.142 StuG.III Ausf.B

Dragon’s popular and new generation StuG.III series already includes 1/35 scale kits of the Ausf.A, C/D, E, F and G. The last one waiting in the wings was the Ausf.B, and now it’s here! Armed with a short-barreled 7.5cm StuK.37 gun of L/24 caliber, the 20.2-ton assault gun was widely used by Sturmartillerie batteries in campaigns such as the Balkans and the invasion of Russia. As to be expected, the new kit is cleverly based on foregoing family members, but it also has a host of new parts specifically created for this early variant of German assault gun. An example is the hatches on top of the fighting compartment superstructure, which are different to those on any other StuG.III variant. Also new for this release are optional spare-track brackets on the front of the right-hand fender, these being made from photo-etched metal parts. Also new are photo-etched clasps for the front fenders. This magnificent Smart Kit contains a full fighting compartment interior. Dragon’s new generation of StuG.IIIs is now fully present and correct!
