Sciffer Books - Messerschmitt Bf109 F-K

Willy Radinger, Wolfgang Otto. As the Luftwaffe's standard fighter, beginning in 1937 the Bf 109 was produced in large numbers and after the outbreak of the Second World War saw action over every front. With this light, high-performance aircraft Professor Willy Messerschmitt had created a ground-breaking design. The Bf 109 had to remain in continuous development in order to keep pace with advances in Allied fighter design. 1941 saw the advent of the Bf 109 F, a clearly improved version, which was soon replaced by the more powerful and better armed Bf 109 G. The Bf 109 H high-altitude fighter reached a ceiling of 14,000 meters, and the Bf 109 K, the most potent of all the variants of this fighter aircraft, entered production in the last year of the war. This is a complete summary of all versions from the Bf 109 F to K with many photographs, some never before published, and details. Illustrated with over 150 color and b/w photographs, line drawings; 160 pages.

Osprey Publishing - Air Campaign: Japan 1944-45 LeMay's B29 Strategic Bombing Campaign

The air campaign that incinerated Japan's cities was the first and only time that independent air power has won a war.
As the United States pushed Imperial Japan back towards Tokyo Bay, the US Army Air Force deployed the first of a new bomber to the theater. The B-29 Superfortress was complex, troubled, and hugely advanced. It was the most expensive weapons system of the war, and formidably capable. But at the time, no strategic bombing campaign had ever brought about a nation's surrender. Not only that, but Japan was half a world away, and the US had no airfields even within the extraordinary range of the B-29.
This analysis explains why the B-29s struggled at first, and how General LeMay devised radical and devastating tactics that began to systematically incinerate Japanese cities and industries and eliminate its maritime trade with aerial mining. It explains how and why this campaign was so uniquely successful, and how gaps in Japan's defences contributed to the B-29s' success.

Osprey Publishing - Duel: Chinese Battleship vs Japanese Cruiser Yalu River 1894

The 1894-95 war between China and Japan, known in the West as the First Sino-Japanese War, lasted only nine months, but its impact resonates today.
The Chinese Beiyang (Northern) Fleet was led by her flagship, Dingyuan, and her sister ship, Zhenyuan, which were the biggest in Asia; German-built armoured turret ships, they were armed with four 12in guns and two 6in guns, plus six smaller guns and three torpedo tubes. For their part the Japanese fleet, including the Matsushima and her sister ships Itsukushima and Hashidate, were each armed with a single 12.6in Canet gun and 11 or 12 4.7in guns, plus smaller guns and four torpedo tubes. The scene was set for a bloody confrontation that would stun the world and transform the relationship between China and Japan.
Fully illustrated with stunning artwork, this is the engrossing story of the Yalu River campaign, where Chinese and Japanese ironclads fought for control of Korea.

Osprey Publishing - Campaign: Kulikovo 1380 The Battle that made Russia

The 14th-century Mongol conquest of the Rus' - the principalities of Russia - was devastating and decisive. Cities were lain waste, new dynasties rose and for a hundred years the Russians were under unquestioned foreign rule. However, the Mongols were conquerors rather than administrators and they chose to rule through subject princes. This allowed the Rurikid dynastic princes of Moscow to rise with unprecedented speed.
With the famed ‘Mongol Yoke' loosening, Grand Prince Dmitri of Moscow saw in this an unparalleled opportunity to rebel. On 7 September 1380 his 60,000 troops crossed the Don to take the battle to Mamai's 125,000, which included Armenian and Cherkessk auxiliaries and Genoese mercenaries. Using specially commissioned artwork, this is the engrossing story of the victory that heralded the birth of Russian statehood.

Osprey Publishing - Vanguard: French Armour in Vietnam 1945-54

French experience with armour in Indo-China dated back to 1919, when it sent FT-17s to the colony, followed by a variety of armoured cars. After World War II, French troops were equipped with a motley collection of American and cast-off British equipment until the outbreak of war in Korea saw an increase in military aid. This included large numbers of the M24 Chaffee light tank, along with amphibious vehicles such as the M29C Weasel and LVT4 Buffalo, to conduct operations in coastal and inland areas that the Viet Minh had previously thought immune to attack. France's armour was a key part of the battle against the Viet Minh right up until the last stand at Dien Bien Phu.

Osprey Publishing - X-Planes: Northrop Flying Wings

Half a century before the 'flying wing' B-2 stealth bomber entered service, John K. ‘Jack' Northrop was already developing prototypes of a large 'flying wing' strategic bomber, which would have been the most radical bombers of their age.
World War II brought a need for very long-range bombers and Northrop received a contract for a 172-ft span bomber, the B-35. Several of these were built, gradually evolving into the definitive XB-35 configuration. Testing revealed that the aircraft was invisible to radar, but engineers struggled to overcome the design challenges and several pilots were lost in crashes. While the program was cancelled in the 1950s, the concept extended into other highly innovative areas, such as the XP-56 and MX-324 Rocket Wing prototype fighters. But the greatest legacy was the first operational flying wing - the Northrop Grumman B-2 stealth bomber, which used much of the hard-won experience from the pioneering programs of half a century before.

Osprey Publishing - Men at Arms: Armies of the Medieval Italian Wars 1125-1325

The great powers of medieval Europe fought continuously in the Italian peninsula between the 12th and 14th centuries as they sought to expand their territory. Invading armies from Germany - the Holy Roman Empire - saw the creation of the defensive Lombard League of northern Italian city-states. These struggles resulted in conflicts between rival confederacies, which in turn proved to be the catalysts for developments in organisation and tactics. Italian urban militias became better organised and equipped, the Imperial armies went from being mostly German to multi-national forces, and both sides became reliant on mercenary forces to prosecute their wars.
After the 1260s, France, relying mainly on armoured cavalry, and Spain, with their innovative light infantry, vied for control of southern Italy. On the seas, the great naval powers of Genoa, Pisa and Venice became fierce rivals, as they created great trading empires, bringing the treasures of the east into feudal Europe. Using detailed colour plates, this beautifully illustrated book describes the myriad of armies and navies that fought for control of Italy in the Middle Ages.

Also included are small matching tactical numbers that were painted on tow clevises. "204" clearly showed these numbers when it was found destroyed in Normandy. All the numbers have irregular outlines to reflect the rough surfaces that they were painted on - as close/detailed as possible to match the actual numbers.

The colours of the numbers are white outlines on black, just like their Panzer IV counterparts in Normandy. Also included are small matching tactical numbers that were painted on tow clevises. "204" clearly showed these numbers when it was found destroyed in Normandy, as well as "236" - as there was a faint visual of white numbers on the right clevis.

Echelon Fine Details 1/35 Gun Trucks in Vietnam: M54s Part 2

This set covers two Vietnam War gun trucks, one M54A2 based "BRUTUS" and the other M54A1 "The BOUNTY HUNTER" loaded with a potent Quad .50 cal turret. In addition, one regular un-armed M54A2 that had personalised markings and a set of markings for a Seabees M51 dump truck., "BRUTUS" was fitted with 3 to 4 .50 cals (sides and back), plus 1 M134 Minigun in the center. Nicknamed the "ghost truck" by the viet congs because they kept killing it and it kept coming back. One crew member by the name of Larry Dahl sacrificed him life so that others may live and that earned him the Medal of Honor, posthumously. "BRUTUS" had the flashy mud flaps, much like "The Untouchables" on set D356256 except that they were in Orange. "The Bounty Hunter" is another well known truck that featured striking markings packing a mean Quad 50 turret. Depending on which Quad 50 turret kit you have, AFV Club (M35A1 "Nancy" guntruck) or DML's M55, decals for both are provided. There are slight dimensional differences between the two, particularly the sloping front. Each set of truck markings included all the fine stencilings during their service. All meticulously researched. Some of the trucks had the yellow-placards for the cargo bed sides. Armor plating templates for both gun trucks and unarmored M54A2 are provided.

Echelon Fine Details 1/35 Gun Trucks in Vietnam: M54s Part 3

This set features two Vietnam War gun trucks that had M113 hulls loaded onto the cargo bed as a quick and effective fighting compartment. Both are M54A2 based trucks. Markings for "The Lifer" included fine stencils on the cabin and the fuel tank as well as tire pressure stencils. Markings for the "King Kong" are based on two different periods, one when it was part of 25th Transport Company, the other when it was with 54th Transport coy. It had other period markings as well, but these two periods were better documented. In addition, each were based on different M54A2s (different serial numbers), and so are the various fine stencils around the cabin and fuel tank. Be sure to study both carefully (differences in stencils, etc) before settling on which option to choose. "King Kong" had the "Okinawa" shields on the M113 copula whereas "The Lifer" had none. Both had additional .50 cals fitted to both sides of the roof hatch. Armor plating templates for both gun trucks are provided.

Zoukei-Mura 1/32 Kawasaki Ki-45 Kai Tei Toryu (Nick)
WS 1/32 Ki-45 “Toryu” Modulated Long Nose Type. What are the features of the late production type!

1. Developed and manufactured by Kawasaki Aircraft, The Toryu was a twin-engine fighter of the Imperial Japanese Army. Demonstrating its power in the interception of large aircraft, it was very active in the mainland defense battle until the end of the war. With this kit, it is possible to reproduce the Ki-45 Kai Tei (late production type) or the Ki-45 Kai Hei, Tei (Tai-Atari Special Attack Aircraft).

2. The seemingly simple shape is actually composed of complex and natural shapes in each part. Especially the nose, the circumference of the canopy, the top and bottom of the fuselage, the front side and back side of the fuselage are twisted. In our SWS kit, these features of the exterior are fully reproduced as well as the interior.

3. A variety of armed variants were abundant, actively adopting large-sized machine cannons. There were 4 variants: A, B, C, & D. Based on the SWS concept, detailed suspension systems devised for each weapon were reproduced. We express our condolences, and made it possible to reproduce this “ramming machine”.

Dragon 1/35 PLA Gongchen Tank (Captured Type 97 Chi-Ha with Shinhoto New Turret

It's a limited-edition kit of the "Gongchen" tank, the very first tank used by the People's Liberation Army (PLA). This specific Type 97 w/Shinhoto (new turret) tank was captured from the Japanese in 1945. It later saw combat against Kuomintang troops in the Chinese Civil War and it was chosen to lead a victory parade in Tiananmen Square on Oct 1, 1949. Even today the "Gongchen" tank, whose Chinese name roughly means "Heroic", is housed in a Beijing museum.

AK Interactive - FAQ 3 Modern AFV Painting Techniques Book

  • 464 pages.
  • English & Spanish language.
  • More than 2.500 images.

This new Super-Book, like its predecessors in this same series of technical manuals called “FAQ”, is dedicated to modeling military vehicles and the techniques used for assembling, painting and weathering.
The difference with the previous book is that we have moved on in the timeframe and this book is a complement of the previous ones. It also explains some new techniques that have appeared these last years, mainly to use in modern vehicles but that can be also used in vehicles of all eras. The most complete book for military vehicles edited until now. The materials that make up modern vehicles and weapons have changed considerably since World War II. Materials that were out of the question on a technological and industrial level back then are now commonplace. The use of these new materials and the manufacturing and assembly methods reflect on the way we paint and weather these models; they require a different approach. Like many other things in life, in the end the purpose is to take up new challenges. In this book we present some of those challenges.
Simply essential for the modeller of military vehicles

AK Interactive - Real Colors of WWII Aircraft Book

The Real Colors for aircraft models could not be introduced without releasing a special book devoted to this subject. Renowned researchers Maciej Góralczyk, Gerald T. Högl, Jürgen Kiroff, Nicholas Millman and Mikhail V. Orlov teamed up in order to produce the most up-to-date reference book on the aircraft colors of the main WWII adversaries: Germany, United States, Great Britain and Soviet Union.
The resulting study is a comprehensive guide to the colors and camouflage schemes, presented on 292 pages and illustrated with 42 color profiles, several document reprints, and 390 b/w and color photos, many of which are very rare. Included is the latest information on the Luftwaffe’s late war colors, which have been reproduced as scale colors on the basis of the original paint factory recipes by Gerald T. Högl and Jürgen Kiroff. For the very first time, the unparalleled research on the Soviet Air Force colors done by Mikhail V. Orlov is introduced to the non-Russian readers. Nicholas Millman’s archival research brings us accurate reproduction and description of the colors used by the USAAF, US Navy and RAF/FAA.
This book is a true must-have for anyone with even a slight interest in WWII aircraft colors.

Pen & Sword Books - Cromwell and Centaur Tanks (SC)

Dennis Oliver. Designed with the hard lessons of the North African campaign in mind, including the adoption of a dual-purpose gun capable of firing high-explosive and anti-tank rounds, the Cromwell was one of the most successful of the British cruiser tanks produced during the Second World War. The lack of heavy armor was made up for by the tank's high speed provided by a Rolls-Royce Meteor engine. The Centaur was externally almost identical to the Cromwell, the major difference being the installation of the less powerful Liberty engine. While the Centaur equipped the Royal Marines during the Normandy battles, the Cromwell served until the end of the war and formed the basis for the Comet. In his fifth book in the TankCraft series, author and illustrator Dennis Oliver uses official wartime photographs and comprehensively researched, exquisitely presented color profiles to tell the story of the penultimate British cruiser tank. In common with all the titles from the TankCraft series, the large full-color section features available model kits and accessories as well as after market products. In addition to the color profiles there is a gallery of expertly constructed and painted models. A separate section explains technical details and modifications made during production and in the field, giving the modeler all the information required to recreate an authentic replica of one of the tanks that served from the Normandy beaches to the final battles in Germany. 64 pages.

Casemate Publishing - Ardennes 1944 (SC)

Yves Buffetaut. German army deficiencies are often cited as the reason for the failure of the German counteroffensive in the Ardennes region of France, Belgium and Luxembourg in December of 1944 to January 1945 which the Germans called Operation Wacht am Rhein, the Allies named the Ardennes Counteroffensive, and was also commonly known as the Battle of the Bulge. It is certainly true that the three German armies regrouped for the offensive were in differing states; only the 5th Panzer Army was in something resembling good condition, with the 6th and the 7th mediocre at best. The divisions were also often not mobile enough because of the lack of automotive equipment and were short on tanks and artillery. But these cannot be considered the only reasons for the German failure: it was also the speed of the Allied reaction, and especially the conduct of the Americans, who experienced some of the fiercest combat of the war, and suffered over 100,000 casualties. Illustrated with over 100 photographs and 24 color profiles describes in detail the different events that caused the German defeat, from the beginning of the offensive on December 16, 1944 to the retreat behind the Siegfried Line. It looks at several topics in particular: the American resistance at St. Vith; the resistance of the 101st Airborne in Bastogne; German obstinacy in persisting with the siege at Bastogne; the airlift and the intervention of the 9th US Air Force; the rapid regrouping of the 3rd US Army; Patton's counterattack; the British counterattack; and finally how the Allies failed to transform the German withdrawal into rout, missing an opportunity to cross the Siegfried line and the Rhine on the heels of the Germans, leading to an incomplete victory. 128 pages.

Casemate Publishing - German Armor in Normandy (SC)

Throughout the Second World War, a shift occurred in the composition of the large armored units of armies which lead to an increase in the power of their tanks in particular. The Germans were no exception. Many of its recently formed Panzer divisions, from the 12th SS-Panzerdivision Hitlerjugend to the 2nd SS-Panzerdivision Das Reich, were thrust into the effort to repel the Allies from June to August 1944 in Normandy. Within just ten weeks they would be defeated. This volume of Casemate Illustrated starts by exploring the initial struggle to gain control of Caen after the Allies had landed on the beaches of Normandy which resulted in the ferocious German Tiger tanks destroying the 7th Armored Division, with British losses totaling twenty-seven tanks. The subsequent strategies the commanders devised for the Panzer tanks during Operations Goodwood and Cobra were not so successful, ultimately ending in disaster for the Germans as the Allies broke through the German line by the end of July. With over 100 photos, diagrams showing the composition of German armored divisions, and color profiles of tanks and other armored vehicles, this is a detailed examination of the German armored forces in Normandy in 1944, focusing on the organization of the 10 Panzer divisions that took part, the vehicles they relied on and the battles they fought in and why ultimately their combined strength was not enough.

Alan Ranger; Camera ON Series 7. The Hotchkiss H35 or Char léger modèle 1935 H was a French cavalry tank developed prior to World War II. From 1938 an improved version was produced with a stronger engine, the Char léger modèle 1935 H modifi 39, which from 1940 was also fitted with more powerful 37 mm gun. About 500+ Hotchkiss tanks were captured and used by the Germans as Panzerkampfwagen 35H 734(f) or Panzerkampfwagen 39H 735(f), most of them for occupation and assigned to police units or second line logistic support troops. Illustrated photo album includes over 90 B&W period photos, many previously unseen from private sources in Germany. 64 pages.

Tamiya 1/35 US M551 Sheridan Airborne Tank Vietnam War

This model kit recreates the M551 Sheridan Armored Reconnaissance/Airborne Assault Vehicle (AR/AAV). The M551 was designed as airdrop capable armor with wading capabilities, a key concept as the U.S. took on the role of global policeman post WWII.
