Savoia-Marchetti SM.79 II Sparviero (Hawk), 1/48 - TSM2817

This plane achieved incredible success in the Mediterranean war sinking or damaging up to 700,000 tons of gross tonnage shipping and was responsible for the sinking of the carrier Eagle. The plane played a key role in helping the Italians take back the Central Basin of the Mediterranean in 1942, where the war was inextricably turning the way of the Italians. However, with the entry of the US (and its immense resources) into the war in November 1942, hope of victory faded. The plane continued to be used in Northern Italy as part of the ANR where it continued to inflict losses to allied shipping. The plane was also sold succesfully abroad.

Comes with 185 medium gray plastic parts and 10 clear parts. Decals for one aircraft.

Italian C1 Ariete MBT, 1/35 - TSM0332

In 1984, Otobreda Division of Alenia Difesa and the Defense Vehicles Division of Iveco formed a consortium to develop a new family of wheeled and tracked vehicles for the Italian Army, the B1 Centauro Tank Destroyer, the C1 Ariete MBT and the VCC-80 Dardo IFV. In the same year, work began on many components and systems. Otobreda had overall responsibility to develop the C1 MBT, with Iveco providing the power pack, the suspension system and other automotive components. The first prototype of the new main battle tank, now called Ariete ("Ram" in Italian), the same name as the famous WWII armored unit of the Italian Army, was completed in 1986. It was followed by the others in 1988 in order to allow the Italian Army to begin a complete program of trials. As a result, an initial order for 200 tanks was placed, to be followed by a second lot for a further 200 vehicles of an improved version in 2002. At La Spezia the first production Ariete was completed at the end of 1995. Full production was completed in early 2002 at a total program cost of around 970 million US dollars. The C1 has a crew of 4, the main armament is a OTOBreda built 120mm smooth bore gun fitted with a thermal sleeve, fume extractor, muzzle reference system and fires the same ammunition as the Leopard 2, Leclerc and M1A1/M1A2. A more advanced version is now under construction which features an up-to-date fire control system, an automatic loader for the main gun, as well as a hydro-pneumatic suspension and a 1500 hp diesel engine and increased armor. Combat weight is 54tons with a maximum speed of 40+ mph.

Comes with 229 parts moulded in olive green plastic plus a small sheet of clear plastic for the periscope optics, a length of twine and markings for two tanks plus a well illustrated instruction sheet.

JGSDF Type 61 MBT - 1/72 - TR07217

The Type 61 (Roku-ichi Shiki sensha) was a main battle tank (MBT) developed and used by the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force (JGSDF), built by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. Development started in 1955 and the vehicle was first deployed in April 1961. The type number follows the year of deployment. A total of 560 Type 61s were manufactured between 1961 and 1975, when production ceased. It was succeeded by the Type 74.

After World War II, Supreme Commander of the Allied Powers (SCAP or aka GHQ in Japan) ceased all military manufacturing and development plants in Japan, resulting in Japan losing the technology needed to build and manufacture tanks and armored vehicles. However, due to the Korean War, SCAP ordered Japan to re-militarize, forming armed police forces (National Police Reserve, later called National Security Force, then finally Japan Ground Self Defense Force) and provided M4A3E8 Sherman and M24 Chaffee tanks. However, the average height of a Japanese tank crew-member at the time was too small for the large interior of the US M4A3E8 Sherman and most Japanese tank drivers had difficulty reaching the clutch-pedal with their foot. In addition, the M4 was becoming obsolete. The M24, even though it was quite popular among Japanese tank crews, was inadequate when facing Soviet T-34/85s as seen in Korea. Thus, as the tanks in JGSDF service at the time were either obsolete, inadequate or unsuitable, the JGSDF was provided with the option of either purchasing the new American-built M46 Patton and later the M47 Patton or develop their own MBT in 1954. Due to the high cost of purchasing American made tanks, and because the M47 did not meet their requirements, the JGSDF decided on developing their own main battle tank, resulting in the development of the Type 61.

Russian T-54B MBT - 1/72 - TR07281

The layout of the T-54 is conventional, with the main armament comprising a 100mm rifled gun. The T-54 has been used more than any other tank since the Second World War. It is intended for combat actions involving tanks, combat vehicles, armoured personnel carriers and other armored enemy targets. The T-55 combines a high velocity gun with exceptional long-range endurance. The T-55 has a fully tracked, five-road-wheeled chassis with a low-silhouetted hull and a dome shaped turret. The T-54 series tanks first appeared in 1949 as replacements for the T-34 tank of World War II. The first T-54 prototype was completed in 1946 with first production beginning in 1947. The T-54 was continuously improved and modified, and, when sufficient changes had been made, the tank was redesignated T-55. The T-55 was introduced in 1958 and incorporates all the refinements and improvements of the fully developed T-54 series without being radically different in design or appearance. The T-55A appeared in the early 1960s. Production continued in the Soviet Union through 1981 and was also undertaken in China (as the Type 59), Czechoslovakia and Poland. Large numbers are still in service, although by the 1980s the T-54/55 had been replaced by the T-62, T-64, T-72 as the primary main battle tank in first-line Soviet tank and motorized rifle units. Used in the invasion of Hungary in 1956, Czechoslovakia in 1968, and Syria in 1970, it was the main Arab tank in the 1967 and 1973 wars with Israel. During the 1970s, the T-54 saw combat in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Uganda.

4 sprues plus lower hull, upper hull, tracks. Markings in standard Russian green. The kit consists of 63 parts in light grey plastic, 2 full length vinyl tracks - 2-directional slide-moulded lower hull with suspension.
