AK Interactive - Wet Palette Container to extend use of Acrylic Paint w/wipe, papers, foams

The Wet Palette is a tool mainly used by figure painters, but more and more it is being used by people that paint with acrylics. It will extend the useful life of any acrylic so that it can be used for hours and once shut it will preserve the colors and color mixtures. It can be kept in the fridge.
It has three components:
1.Sponge, to hold large quantities of water, since it is quite thick.
2.Cloth made of fiber, placed on top of the sponge as a leveler, humidity filter, and as an interchangeable element in case of stains or if not used for a long time.
3.High quality special Paper, made of a fine silicone film, allows the transfer of humidity but prevents water forming and paints from dissolving, and does not give off any fibers not hairs when worked with the brushes.

The Wet Palette is watertight and airtight, made of the same material of marine containers for flares, charts, and medicines. Its locks guarantee the seal. This extends the life of paints, especially in Summer, hot climates, and under extreme conditions.
It contains:

AK Interactive - Wipe Refill for Wet Palette Container

AK Interactive - Paper Refill (40) for Wet Palette Container

AK Interactive - Foam Refill for Wet Palette Container

AK Interactive - Reusable Elastic Putty for Camouflage Masking 80gr

The best quality with the best price in a perfect product for modelers that can be adapted to any surface and allows both to make camouflages and to mask areas (such as wheels or or clear parts) that don’t want to be painted

AK Interactive - Greenpower 2-Components Modeling Putty Epoxy (2 10cm strips)

GREENPOWER is an epoxy putty that when mixed both components at room temperature allows to recreate any model’s piece. Once mixed both components the result becomes a sticky green putty. Then you have about 90 minutes to mold and detail, reaching maximum hardness after 24 hours. To obtain smoother surfaces it is recommended to use a lubricant such as water, oil, or vaseline, in order to prevent unwanted settling of the putty. The tools must be always lubricated or moistened, and talcum powder can be used to avoid fingerprints, or to add texture. Altering the proportions of both components produces a greater or lesser hardness and hardening faster or slower. Storing the putty in a cool area or even in the refrigerator will keep it in better condition and will last longer.

Trumpeter 1/350 RN Littorio Italian Navy Battleship 1941

The largest and most powerful warships ever built in Italy, the battleships of the Littorio class, were the first “35,000 tonners” to come under the provisions of the Washington Treaty.  Although the Washington Navel Conference of 1922 gave Italy the authority to build up to 182,800 tons of new capital ships (including 70,000 tons prior to 1932), the Italians waited more than a decade before beginning construction. Commissioned on 24 June 1940, she joined the 1st Navel Squadron at Taranto under Admiral Bergamini’s flag.  She was severely damaged 10-11 November 1940 while anchored at Taranto by British Aircraft launched from the carrier Illustrious.  In March of 1941 she  was back in service.  17 December 1941 the RN Littorio participated in the First battle of Sirte Gulf.  21 March 1942 during the Second battle of Sirte, a muzzle blast from the aft 381-mm turret set fire to a Ro.43 floatplane on the fantail which led the British to believe they had scored a torpedo hit on the battleship. Battle of mid-June 12-16 June 1942 the RN Littorio was damaged 15 June 1942 by American B-24 bombers on the return to her base she was hit by a torpedo launched by the Wellington.  Repairs were completed by 27 August 1942 but the ship was to carry out no more combat missions.  From December 1942 to June 1943 the RN Littorio was used to defend the cities of Taranto, La Spezia and Genoa from Allied air attacks. 25 July 1943 the RN Littorio was renamed the Italia.  She was decommissioned 1 June 1948 after a total of 46 missions during her wartime career of which nine were combat missions.

Osprey Publishing - Duel: Spitfire VC vs A6M2 Zero-Sen Darwin 1943

Just weeks after Pearl Harbor, Darwin was mauled by a massive Japanese attack. Without a single fighter to defend Australian soil, the Australian government made a special appeal to Britain for Spitfires. A year later the Spitfire VC-equipped No 1 Fighter Wing, RAAF, faced the battle-hardened 202nd Kokutai of the IJNAF, equipped with A6M2 Zero-sens, over Darwin. This was a gruelling campaign between evenly matched foes, fought in isolation from the main South Pacific battlegrounds. Pilots on either side had significant combat experience, including a number of Battle of Britain veterans. The Spitfire had superior flight characteristics but was hampered by short range and material defects in the tropical conditions, while the Japanese employed better tactics and combat doctrine inflicting serious losses on the over-confident Commonwealth forces. Fully illustrated with detailed full-colour artwork, this is the gripping story of two iconic aircraft facing off against each other above Australia.

Osprey Publishing - Campaign: Mortain 1944 Hitler's Normandy Panzer Offensive

Following the successful landings in Normandy on D-Day and consolidation during Operation Cobra, the Wehrmacht was ordered to begin a counter-offensive named Operation Lüttich. The plan was to send a large Panzer force across the First US Army sector, cutting off its spearheads, and finally reach Avranches on the coast. Had this succeeded, it not only would have cut off the First US Army spearheads, but also Patton's newly deployed Third US Army operating in Brittany. However, thanks to an intercepted radio message, the Allies were well-prepared for the offensive and not only repelled the oncoming panzers, but went on a counter-attack that would lead to a whole German army becoming encircled in the Falaise Pocket. Fully illustrated with stunning full-colour artwork, this book tells the story of Operation Lüttich, the failed offensive which ended any prospect of Germany winning the battle of Normandy.

Osprey Publishing - Campaign: Strasbourg 357AD The Victory that Saved Gaul

Civil war in the Western Roman Empire between AD 350-53 had left the frontiers weakly defended, and the major German confederations along the Rhine - the Franks and Alemanni - took advantage of the situation to cross the river, destroy the Roman fortifications along it and occupy parts of Roman Gaul. In 355, the Emperor Constantius appointed his 23-year-old cousin Julian as his Caesar in the provinces of Gaul with command of all troops in the region. Having recaptured the city of Cologne, Julian planned to trap the Alemanni in a pincer movement, but when the larger half of his army was forced into retreat, he was left facing a much larger German force outside the walls of the city of Strasbourg. This new study relates the events of this epic battle as the experience and training of the Roman forces prevailed in the face of overwhelming German numbers.

Osprey Publishing - Vanguard: Su76 Assault Gun

The SU-76 assault gun was the second most widely manufactured Soviet armoured fighting vehicle of World War II, out-numbered only by the legendary T-34. Inspired in part by the German Marder series of tank destroyers, Soviet designers realized that the chassis of the obsolete T-70 light tank could be adapted to a much more substantial gun if it was placed in a fixed casemate rather than in a turret. This led to the design of the SU-76, which saw its combat debut at Kursk in the summer of 1943. The SU-76 was deployed primarily as an infantry direct support weapon, becoming the infantry tank of the Red Infantry, much as the StuG III became the infantry tank of the German infantry. Featuring full colour artwork and written by an expert on tank warfare during World War II, this fascinating study describes one of the Soviet Union's most important armoured vehicles during its struggle with Nazi Germany.

Osprey Publishing - Weapon: G3 Battle Rifle

During the Cold War, the G3 was one of the world's pre-eminent battle rifles. Developed in France and Spain after 1945, the rifle was produced by the German arms manufacturer Heckler & Koch. Adopted by more than 40 countries and produced on licence by many more, it was widely employed during colonial wars in Africa, insurgencies in Latin America and conflicts in the Middle East, but perhaps its widest use was in the Iran-Iraq War. Variants of the G3 have also seen substantial usage among Special Forces including Britain's Special Boat Service and the US Navy SEALs. Semi-automatic versions, especially the HK91 and HK93, remain popular in the United States, and the G3-derived HK11 and HK21 family of light machine guns have also been widely adopted by military and law-enforcement units across the world. Fully illustrated with specially commissioned artwork, this study examines one of the iconic weapons of the Cold War era.

Osprey Publishing - Combat: Macedonian Phalangite vs Persian Warrior Alexander Confronts Achaemenids 334-331BC

In August 334 BC, Alexander the Great invaded the Persian Empire and systematically set about its conquest. At the core of Alexander's army were 10,000 members of the phalanx, the phalangites. Armed with a long pike and fighting in formations up to 16 ranks deep, these grizzled veterans were the mainstay of the Macedonian army. Facing them were the myriad armies of the peoples that made up the Persian Empire. At the centre of these forces was the formation known as the Immortals: 10,000 elite infantry, armed with spears and bows. In this study, a noted authority assesses the origins, combat role and battlefield performance of Alexander's phalangites and their Persian opponents in three key battles of the era - the Granicus River, Issus and Gaugamela - at the dawn of a new way of waging war.

Osprey Publishing - Men at Arms: Australian Bushrangers 1788-1880

The first 'bushrangers' or frontier outlaws were escaped or time-expired convicts, who took to the wilderness - 'the bush' - in New South Wales and on the island of Tasmania. Initially, the only Crown forces available were redcoats from the small, scattered garrisons, but by 1825 the problem of outlawry led to the formation of the first Mounted Police from these soldiers. The gold strikes of the 1860s attracted a new group of men who preferred to get rich by the gun rather than the shovel. The roads, and later railways, that linked the mines with the cities offered many tempting targets and were preyed upon by the bushrangers. This 1860s generation boasted many famous outlaws who passed into legend for their boldness. The last outbreak came in Victoria in 1880, when the notorious Kelly Gang staged several hold-ups and deliberately ambushed the pursuing police. Their last stand at Glenrowan has become a legendary episode in Australian history. Fully illustrated with some rare period photographs, this is the fascinating story of Australia's most infamous outlaws and the men tasked with tracking them down.

Airfix 1/48 Hawker Hunter F6 Fighter

1) XF418 4FTS Brawdy
2) XF509 4FTS
3) Dutch AF

As far as classic British jet aircraft are concerned, few would argue that the beautiful Hawker Hunter should be placed at the head of this group, entering RAF service in 1954 and still providing training support almost 40 years later. The definitive interceptor version of the Hunter was the Mk.6 and by the end of 1958, all of the RAFs day fighter squadrons in Britain and Germany were equipped with these aircraft 

Casemate Books - German & Russian Tanks Models 1939-45 Modeling Techniques Guide (Hardback)

The Second World War is a favorite for modelers, and this comprehensive guide to techniques suitable for 1/72, 1/48 and 1/35 scale tank models will be invaluable to modelers wanting to recreate the iconic tanks of this conflict.

Tamiya 1/35 British M10 IIC Achilles Tank Destroyer

This is a Tamiya model replica of the British Achilles tank destroyer. The Achilles was a modification of the M10s which Britain received from the U.S., with the original 3-inch main gun replaced by the fearsome British 17 pounder. The vast majority of M10s were the M10 IIC variant, which was based upon the late-production M10 with distinctive enlarged turret-rear counterweight. Around 1,000 were produced between Spring 1944 and the end of WWII, the Allied forces making good use of it after the Normandy landings, benefiting from the power of the gun which allowed it to tear through Tiger I front armor.

• 1/35 scale plastic model assembly kit.
• Features newly-molded parts depicting the upper hull with its sloped armor, late production M10 turret counterweight, and long 17pdr gun.
• Interior features depictions of shell racks and multi-part 17pdr gun breech.

Squadron Signal Books - A-20 Havoc In Action (SC)

A-20 Havoc In Action. Book by David Doyle. Squadron Signal Books. The Douglas A-20 Havoc was a light bomber, attack, and intruder aircraft of World War II. Used by the American Army Air Forces, nearly one-third of the aircraft served with the Soviet military, while many other A-20s fought with the RAF. Taking its first operational shape on the eve of the outbreak of the war in Europe, the 7B prototype actually crashed with a French observer aboard, kicking off a scandal in still-isolationist America where military aircraft were not to be exported. U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt pressed for a change in that restrictive rule and the French, impressed by the plane's rugged dependability and maneuverability, proceeded to place orders for 100 of the aircraft, albeit with modifications that resulted in the DB-7 version. Even before shipments began in November 1939, Paris had increased its order by another 170 aircraft. Many of those, however, found their way into the British RAF, which flew them under the nickname "Boston" after the fall of France in June 1940. The U.S. Army Air Corps issued its first contracts for the aircraft they called the A-20 and A-20A, in May 1939, these were only delivered during the months from late 1940 through much of 1941. A dozen A-20As had recently arrived in Pearl Harbor when the Japanese surprise attack destroyed two of them on the ground. Modifications of the design continued and it was after the U.S. entry into the war when the A-20C version, produced by Douglas and Boeing, first were accepted. Of the first 515 A-20Cs, 108 were retained by the U.S. Army Air Forces, while 407 were shipped off to the Soviet Union. Numerous versions of the aircraft followed. About half of the A-20G were sent to the Soviet Union, as were many of the A-20H. In fact the Soviet air forces had more A-20s than the USAAF. Illustrated with 192 vintage photographs and detailed line drawings. 80 pages.

Squadron Signal Books - A-26/B-26 Invader In Action (SC)

A-26/B-26 Invader In Action. Book by David Doyle. Squadron Signal Books. The Douglas A-26 Invader served the United States with distinction in various combat roles during World War II, Korea and Vietnam. Originally created as an attack aircraft, with the designation A-26, the Invader was designed to replace the A-20 Havoc, North American B-25 Mitchell and the Martin B-26 Marauder for the U.S. Army Air Forces. However, production delays prevented the aircraft from reaching the field until June 1944. With as many as 14 forward-firing .50 caliber machine guns as well as bombs and rockets, the Invader was well-suited for ground strikes when the Korean War broke out in 1951. The Invader flew into combat and carried the markings of the U.S. Air Force as the redesignated B-26. Later, the French used the Invader during their war in Vietnam. Shortly after the United States entered the conflict, Invaders returned to the sky over Vietnam in the hands of American as well as South Vietnamese crews. In order to base the aircraft type in Thailand, which prohibited the USAF bombers, the Invader was once more classified as an attack aircraft, and the A-26 designation returned. Illustrated with more than 175 photos, 35 of which are in vintage color, as well as two color profile illustrations and 10 line drawings. 80 pages.

Dragon 1/35 IDF M60 Tank with Dozer Blade

Dragon's latest IDF item is a 1/35 scale plastic kit of an M60 tank fitted with an M9 dozer blade. The kit uses the previously released and very popular IDF Magach 6 tank, to which an M9 dozer blade has been installed. This tank also features Blazer add-on explosive reactive armor (ERA). With a dozer blade fitted, such vehicles were very useful whenever obstacles needed to be cleared or where defensive earthworks were required. This 1/35 scale kit has superb features, including the correctly arranged ERA modules. Each module fits onto the turret and hull easily and with precision. Of course, the distinguishing feature of this particular kit is the impressive-looking M9 dozer blade. This element is completely new, and it can be depicted in either raised or lowered position depending on what dioramic scene the modeler is trying to recreate. The blade is cleverly produced from multiple parts in order to accurately render its form. With this kit, no obstacles remain in the way for modelers to produce a stunning Israeli AFV!

Dragon 1/35 Panzerkampfwagen VI(P) / Bergepanzer Tiger(P) (2in1)

Continuing Dragon’s wave of 2-in-1 kits is this convenient 1/35 scale set that allows modelers to build either a Tiger (P) coated or a Bergepanzer Tiger (P). Only five Tiger (P) vehicles were produced in 1942. They were issued for training and testing purposes and only one saw combat as a command tank on the Eastern Front in September 1942. Three hulls were also converted into Bergepanzer recovery vehicles in September 1943. These featured a raised superstructure at the rear and the only recovery equipment installed was a small derrick crane, rams and timber beams. Modelers can decide which version of the Tiger (P) they wish to build – either the Tiger (P) tank with Zimmerit already molded on, or the Bergepanzer Tiger (P) without any Zimmerit on the hull. That means the kit contains two complete hulls and chassis. Different photo-etched parts for each vehicle type are included in the box too. Either vehicle assembles with ease, and the Bergepanzer Tiger (P) in particular has been out of stock for some time, leaving modelers with some hard choices ahead!

Dragon 1/35 Jagdpanther Ausf.G1 Late/Ausf.G2 (2in1)

Dragon earlier released a 1/35 scale 2-in-1 kit of an early-production Jagdpanther, and it proved very popular amongst the modeling fraternity thanks to its versatility. Now Dragon is releasing a second 2-in-1 incarnation of the Jagdpanther, this time offering a later version of the G1 and a G2. Modelers can of course decide which variant to build, as all necessary parts are included in the box. The kit includes two complete fighting compartments and all sorts of other parts such as different roofs, exhaust mufflers and armored covers. To sustain the highest quality of Dragon’s kits, the kit comes with a range of photo-etched parts such as tool clasps to enhance details. Given the enduring popularity of the Jagdpanther and the flexibility of this 2-in-1 kit, it will certainly and quickly become a favorite too.

Dragon 1/35 Sd.Kfz.165 Hummel (2in1)

Sd.Kz.165 Hummel's combat debut occurred during the titanic Battle of Kursk. Operated by a crew of six, the SPH carried 18 rounds for the main armament and more than 700 were built by the end of WWII. An easy identifying feature between Early- and Late-Production variants of the Hummel is the driver's/radio operator's compartment. On early vehicles, the driver received a small compartment that jutted out of the glacis plate. On later vehicles, this crew compartment was extended the full width of the hull to also enclose the radio operator. This 2-in-1 kit, built precisely to 1/35 scale, allows modelers to create either an Early-Production or Late-Production Hummel. To account for the different production runs, there are two complete upper hulls as well as different drive sprockets, for example. Indeed, everything needed to produce an accurate variant is included in the box. The engineering is top notch too, with Razor Edge techniques utilized for the armored superstructure to produce a true-to-scale appearance. This allows interior fittings to be accurately sized and shaped. Furthermore, an aluminum gun barrel is offered for the 15cm gun. To cap it all off and leave modelers buzzing, the Hummel kit box top features one of Ron Volstad’s famous vintage illustrations of this SPH. The flight of the bumble bee has soared to new heights with this 2-in-1 offering!

Dragon 1/35 T1E1 Heavy Tank (3in1)

Heavily armed, the T1E1 featured a 76.2mm main gun and 37mm coaxial gun in a three-man turret. There were also two 0.30-cal machine guns in the bow, another in the commander’s cupola and a 0.50-cal machine gun on a rotor mount at the rear of the turret for antiaircraft use. It required a crew of six.
Under its Back Label line of plastic kits, Dragon has created a splendid 1/35 scale kit of the Heavy Tank T1E1. Black Label already offers kits of the M6 and M6A1 in the same scale, so this is a useful addition to this interesting family of US tanks.b> The kit features a brand new upper hull with the engine deck details different from the M6 and M6A1, and new lower hull rear plate. Details are carefully rendered and it fits together easily. Moreover, a US tank crew figure set is included as BONUS. This is the perfect chance to scoop up and complete this trio of US heavy metal! Actually this kit is a 3 in 1 version, that consists of parts for building one of T1E1 or a M6 or a M6A1.

Dragon 1/35 Sd.Kfz.10 Ausf.A with 10.5cm leFH18/40

As part of its Combo Kit campaign to offer convenient and appealing vehicle pairings, Dragon is offering two complementary subjects in its latest release: a German Sd.Kfz.10 1t halftrack towing a 10.5cm le.FH.18 howitzer. These two are just made for each other, with the halftrack widely employed to tow the artillery piece. Indeed, the Sd.Kfz.10 was conceived as a prime mover for small, towed antitank or antiaircraft guns. This is yet another stunning combination with instant appeal for modelers. The vehicle and weapon kits themselves are the same as when they were released individually, for their engineering quality and accuracy remain top drawer. The halftrack features a complete interior, as well as internal components like the engine and gearbox. The field gun can be depicted hitched to the back of the halftrack, or it can be presented in firing mode. What’s more, modelers can obtain this Combo Set more cheaply than having to buy them separately. Two complete kits in a single box! It’s definitely a steal at this price!

Dragon 1/35 2cm Flak 38 mit Sd.Ah.51 & Flak Crew

Germany fielded a number of antiaircraft weapons during WWII, and one of the smallest was the FlaK 30 and its modernized version the FlaK 38. These cannons were of 20mm caliber and were the most widely produced German artillery pieces of the war with thousands manufactured. The FlaK 38 was mounted on a single-axle Sonderanhangar 51 (Sd.Ah.51) towed carriage. As well as targeting low-flying aircraft, the weapon could also be used effectively in the ground role. Dragon is now offering a very useful 2-in-1 kit of the FlaK 38, offering modelers to build either an early-production or late-production version of it. There are slight differences in the two versions, and Dragon supplies all necessary components to build either one. Modelers can pose the gun at various elevations or degrees of traverse, or it can be assembled in transport configuration. Making the FlaK 38 even more desirable is a complete gun crew and its associated Sd.Ah.51 trailer. A dramatic diorama can thus be built straight from the box, and its 2-in-1 characteristics give more versatility. This may be a small kit, but it offers a huge amount of enjoyment!

Dragon 1/35 Panzer Pz.Kpfw.III Ausf.E/F (2in1)

Dragon is releasing another attractive 2-in-1 kit in its 1/35 scale range, this time representing a Pz.Kpfw. III tank, a mainstay of Germany’s panzer force in the early years of WWII. This new kit offering allows modelers to build either a Panzer III Ausf.E or Ausf.F variant of the tank. Particularly in the Blitzkrieg campaigns in Poland, France, the Balkans and Russia, the Panzer III was a vital asset. There weren’t many differences between the Ausf.E and F, but changes did include cast air intakes fitted on the front hull; splash guard on top of upper hull; side plates of upper hull and alternative road wheels for the two variants are all supplied in the kit’s box. Thanks to the widespread application of slide molds, details are beautifully recreated with a minimum number of parts. Photo-etched components ensure absolute realism too. Both two versions now are contained within a single box for maximum modeling appeal. This set is a must-have for modelers seeking to create a diorama or scene from the Blitzkrieg era.

Dragon 1/72 Sd.Kfz.251/2 Ausf.D mit Wurfrahman 40 (2in1)

German's Sd.Kfz.251 halftrack series proved highly versatile throughout WWII, and numerous variants were produced over the course of its life. One version was the Stuka zu Fuss mounting the Wurfrahmen 40 rocket launcher system, ideal for providing a heavy bombardment capability to panzergrenadier units. The new Dragon 1/72 kit features such fighting vehicle, offering two options for modelers to build either a vehicle with 32cm incendiary projectiles/wooden crates or a vehicle with 28cm incendiary projectiles in steel crates.

Dragon 1/72 Sd.Kfz.251/7 Ausf.D Pioneerpanzerwagen (2in1)

German's Sd.Kfz.251 halftrack series proved highly versatile throughout WWII, and numerous variants were produced over the course of its life. One version is Sd.Kfz.251/7 Pionierpanzerwagen, which was issued to combat engineers in Panzerpionier companies. This new Sd.Kfz.271/7 offers two options for modelers to build either a normal 251/7 w/MG or a 251/7 with 2.8cm sPzB 41 AT gun. The kit features the characteristic assault bridges that are accurately reproduced in 1/72 scale.

Italeri 1/72 Kfir C2 Israel Jet Fighter

The Kfir is an all-weather multirole combat aircraft produced by the Israel Aircraft Industries. It was mainly based on the French Dassault Mirage III / 5 airframe, but it adopted several improvements as the Israeli-built version of the powerful and reliable General Electric J79 turbojet engine or a complete new set of avionic equipment. Kfir programme has been originated to develop a more effective version of the IAI Nesher. The Kfir entered in service in 1975 and was assigned to fighter squadrons. During the time, some updated versions came out as the Kfir C7 charcterised by a powerful engine, better avionics and inflight refuelling capability. However, with the introduction of the new F-15, the reliable and robust Kfir changed its main role and it was used to perform strike missions. It is armed with two 30 mm. guns and it can load several types of missiles, bombs and rocket launchers.

Italeri 1/48 Skyraider A1H USN Fighter/Bomber

The Douglas Skyraider was manufactured immediately after War World II. Despite its traditional piston motor, in an age when jets were spreading, the Skyraider had an extraordinary long career. It made its first flight in 1945 and it was retired from service only in 1975. It has participated to several conflicts, demonstrating its value in Korea and in Vietnam. Characterised by low speed manoeuvrability, it was able to transport impressive war cargos of over 3,500Kg. Perfect for ground attack missions, it was provided with robust armour to minimise fire damages from the enemy. The Skyrider A-1H, thanks to its powerful 2,700 HP radial engine, was able to reach the max speed of 322 mph and it was able to load an impressive variety of armaments. Further more it was equipped with four 20 mm. guns

Italeri 1/35 Panzerwerfer 42 w/sWS 15cm Nebelwerfer German Rocket Launcher

The Schwerer Wehrmachtschlepper (sWS) was developed as a medium half-track and used to transport supplies to front-line troops or as a towing vehicle for the light artillery. However, on the large rear flat load compartment some other applications have been developed. One modification was the Panzerwerfer 42 auf sWS, a 10 barreled 15 cm Nebelwerfer 42 rocket launched placed over an armored ammunition storage compartment. The rocket launcher, developed as device to create smoke screens, was soon used as real artillery able to launch high-explosive ammunitions. It could shoot the  rocktes with impressive and deadly effects. The original structure of the transport vehicle was strengthened with additional shields to protect the crew from the enemy fire and from the negative effects of the rocket launcher.

Italeri 1/35 RSO/03 German Tracked Vehicle w/75mm Pak 40 Gun

In order to cope with the poor road conditions on the Eastern front, the Germans built tracked tractors to tow all types of vehicles and also serve to carry various loads from ammunition and food supplies. The official description of this vehicle was “Raupenschlepper-Ost” (tracked tractor-East).The RSO  was built by the Austrian manufacturer Steyr-works. It had a commercial-type pressed steel cab and a wooden cargo body. The next versions, as the RSO/03 built by Klockner-Humbolt-Deutz AG, had a simpler, soft-top, slab-sided metal cab. It proved ideal for the mud and slush conditions of the Russian front. Thanks to its “off road” capabilities it was used as artillery and anti-tank gun as the largely used 75 mm. Pak 40 towing tractor.

Italeri 1/72 M12 GMC US Army Tank Destroyer

The self-propelled gun GMC M12 was used during the Second World War by the U.S. Army. It was developed on the hull of the M3 Lee / Grant tank on which was installed the original French GPF 155 mm gun.  The main armament, the ammunitions and the gun crew were located in an open topped area at the back of the vehicle. Only the driver's and the radio operator’s seats were protected. To absorb the effects of the recoil when using the artillery piece, the M-12 was equipped with a rear blade that was lowered and fixed into the ground.

Ammo by Mig - Solution Book - How To Paint WWII USA ETO Vehicles

US military vehicles are one of the more interesting and attractive WWII subjects for lots of modelers. American armor and soft-skinned vehicles offer almost infinite possibilities with a range of models, versions, and settings from all over the world to be depicted in scale. Europe was arguably the most extensive theater of the war, it was here that a huge range of all types of equipment were put into service including artillery pieces, trucks, halftracks, tanks, and auxiliary vehicles such as bulldozers and cranes. With this guide, you can paint any olive drab-colored vehicle that operated in Europe. Although we have chosen an M4 Sherman tank as an example for this step-by-step guide, the same processes can be applied in exactly the same sequence and methods to any other US vehicle including trucks, jeeps, halftracks, or a tank or self-propelled gun. Now you just have to grab your favorite model and start painting without further delay! Keep in mind that all US vehicles in Europe were exposed to the same weather conditions, although some to a greater extent than others. You simply have to adjust the intensity of the weathering effects (mud, dust, dirt, oil and grease, chipping, etc.) to your subject and setting and then simply follow this easy to use guide. All the products shown are rather basic and the most adequate to recreate the effects shown. If you maintain the order of application and drying times stipulated, you will be rewarded with great results. Now buckle up and enjoy the experience of being guided by the hand of a master modeler!
