Italian Heavy Tank P40 - 1/35 - TM89792
The P40 (P=Pesante (Heavy)) tank, with its powerful 75/34 (75mm, 34 caliber) cannon installed on a rotating turret and 26 ton weight,
was the heaviest tank produced for the Italian Army during World War II. The tank featured some innovative
characteristics for the time such as angled front and side main body armor plates. It had a good
top speed of approximately 40 km/h (25 mph) and was powered by a 420hp V12 gasoline engine.
Design of this machine began in 1940 however development
was delayed because of powerplant selection and availbility. The P40 was the contemporary of the Sherman
and the PzKpfw IV. In 1943, the first version of the P40 was ready for production (in line with the original
plans for the Italian entry into WWII). However, with the armistice
and the German occupation of Northern Italy, all P40s were seized by the German Army. About three dozen were
used as stationay pillboxes along the Gothic line without engines due to supply
difficulties from the struggling Italian war industry (due to a lack of raw materials). The P40 equipped
elements of three divisons of the German Army on the Yugoslavian front and others were used in Austria against
the Soviet Army in limited actions. The P40 together with the heavier Semoventes (105mm Basotto) were to re-equip the
Ariete II armored division and was to operate alongside the Centuaro division equipped with an
Italian built PzKpfw V Panther-D tanks and Stugs. The end of hostilities put an end to the program.

French Battle Tank B1 BIS - 1/35 - TM35282
In order to deal with the increasingly tense situation leading up to the outbreak
of WWII, a decision was made to modify and improve the existing B1 tank, giving
rise to the B1 bis. Distinctive features included the large 75mm gun turret
and strengthened front armor. The engine was also upgraded to bring the tank
up to contemporary standards. The French government tasked individual suppliers
with producing key parts, which caused problems and greatly reduced the number
of tanks that were built. Although these and other strategic failures inhibited
the B1 bis tank’s ability on the battlefield, it was greatly feared by German
soldiers who encountered it. Featuring strong firepower and defense, the B1 bis
could more that hold its own against the tanks of the Wehrmacht during individual combat.
Newly designed tracks require no cement for assembly and are extremely easy to complete.
1-piece upper hull made from slide molding realistically depicts hex bolts.
