This vehicle that was originally developed by the engineering works at Issy-les-Moulineaux (AMX) under the designation Engin Principal de Combat (EPC) and known from 1985 as the Leclerc, was officially introduced into the French Army on 14th January 1992. This state of-the-art French battle tank went into production with the French company GIAT. The first regiment to be equipped with the Leclerc was 501/503 RCC (tank regiment) at Mourmelon. It was then produced in series designated by the French T.1 to T.6, which differ from each other only in detail.

The 88 mm gun was a German anti-aircraft and anti-tank artillery gun from World War II. It was widely used by Germany throughout the war, and was one of the most recognized German weapons of the war. Development of the original models led to a wide variety of guns. The versatile carriage allowed the eighty-eight to be fired in a limited anti-tank mode when still on wheels, and to be completely emplaced in only two-and-a-half minutes. Its successful use as an improvised anti-tank gun led to the development of a tank gun based upon it. These related guns served as the main armament of tanks such as the Tiger I: the 88 cm KwK 36, with the "KwK" abbreviation standing for KampfwagenKanone

The Dragon Panzer IV collection is one step nearer completion with this, the Panzer IV Ausf.F1(F), we've already had the F2 with the longer-barrelled KwK L/24, this kit representing one of the first 462 vehicles delivered with the shorter-barrelled KwK40 L/43.
The Ausf.F1(F) was marked by the fact that the armour thickness was increased to 50mm at the front and 30mm on the sidewalls, increasing it's weight to over 22 tonnes, this necessitated a wider track in order to spread the increased weight over a larger area, and therefore obviously slightly altered running gear.

After the massed appearance of the Soviet T-34, the German side developed the armoured fighting vehicle V "Panther" (Sd.Kfz. 171), Type D of which was used for the first time in 1943. At the end of 1943 necessary improvements gave rise to the Type A. With its 75 mm tank cannon 42 L/70, by the end of the war, the "Panther" had proved its superiority over most enemy battle tanks.
The V-12 Maybach petrol engine developing 700 hp gave the 43,000 kg "Panther" a top speed of 55 km/h. It had a crew of 5.

The French Army decided in August 1933 the development of new light tank replacing Renault FT. Under the scheme Hotchkiss planned H35。Debuted in 1939, was souped up to go 37.5km/h and was equipped with 33-caliber gun. H39 was superior to the then German main tanks Panzer I and II in total performance, and was equal to even Panzer III in firepower. After the surrender of France, approximately 600 of H35 series tanks were requisitioned by Germany. In the last half of the war, however, these requisitioned tanks were being outdated. That is why many of them were recycled in various forms based on those chassis. H38 radio directing tanks were among them.

The Italian Autoblinda AB 43 was an incremental improvement of the AB 41 based upon combat experience with the type. Essentially identical to the AB 41, the AB 43 did have a more powerful engine and its turret profile was reduced with a shorter and wider replacement. The AB 43 retained the same 20mm main gun and machine guns from the AB 41.
The most visible improvement was the addition of seven jerry can racks to the exterior of of the vehicle. This allowed the crew to carry their supplemental fuel supply outside of the crew compartment, or to carry additional cans of fuel and water for extended operations.

The BT-42 was a Finnish vehicle based on the hull of captured Soviet BT-7 light tanks, and fitted with a tall, thinly armoured turret fitted with the WWI era British 4.5 inch Mk.II howitzer. 18 of these unmistakable vehicles were produced.
In service, the combination of the ancient gun, the high profile and the thin 15mm armour of the turret meant that the BT-42 was a dismal failure when pitted against Soviet armour. In a single engagement on 9 June 1944, the defence of Vyborg, eight of the nine BT-42s deployed were lost. This disastrous action saw the disbandment of the Finnish Detached Armour Company.

The SdKfz 6 (Sonderkraftfahrzeug 6) was a half-track military vehicle used by the German Wehrmacht during the Second World War. It was designed to be used as the main towing vehicle for the 10.5 cm leFH 18 howitzer. However it proved far too expensive and was phased out in 1941 for more economic halftracks. Existing SdKfz 6's were maintained in the German army afterwards.
The kit can be built as either an early or late variant so you will need to keep in mind which one you are doing during construction. There is really little different between the two, but it is nice to have that option. With a fully detailed engine, transmissions, suspension and winch (for which you have string for the cable), this is not a curbside. Easily half of the construction is for this part of the kit. The individual track links add to the level of realism. Not only are the track links separate, but so are the track pads.

The Mercedes Benz 170V was Mercedes Benz's line of four-cylinder automobiles from the mid-1930s into the 1950s. It became the foundation on which the company rebuilt after World War II because the tooling had survived Allied bombing. From May 1949, the car was offered with an exceptionally economical 38 PS diesel engine. This was the world's third diesel fueled passenger car, and the first to be produced after the war. The Mercedes Benz 170 SV and 170 SD were also built briefly in Argentina from 1953-1955 in sedan, taxi, station wagon, pick-up and van versions.
While the box does not say it, this is a great little kit of the German Mercedes Benz 170V.

The passenger car Typ 770K was designed by Daimler-Benz in 1938. It became the top of the company's pre-war model range. This car had an 8 cylinder engine of 155 hp and 6 passenger seats. They only produced 88 cars by 1943 and 46 of them were the Tourenwagen type with open bodies. Some of the cars had armored bodies. They were used mainly by the highest state and military authorities of Germany.
ICM's kit of the Daimler Benz 770K consists of 240 parts of very well molded tan colored plastic. Also included are 26 clear parts for the windows and lights. Mold lines and knockout pins are minimal. There is no flash present. Decals are well printed and provide markings for 4 vehicles, 2 in gloss black, 1 in RLM 75 and one in dark grey. Some key features of the kit are:
- Full and very detailed engine
- Highly detailed chassis
- Tires made from styrene
- Hood can be built opened or closed
- Very detailed interior
Another in the growing line of soft skin vehicles coming from ICM. These are all highly detailed models and are great to build. This one will allow you to paint some gloss colors for a change!Product Code: 35533 (2011)
The "V" in the 170 V's was an abbreviation of "Vorn" (front), added to differentiate it from the contemporary rear-engined Mercedes-Benz 170H (W28) ("H" for "Heck", rear) which used the same four cylinder 1697cc engine, but positioned at the back of the car.
Most of the cars produced were two or four door "Limousine" (saloon/sedan bodied cars), but the range of different body types offered in the 1930s for the 170V was unusually broad. A four-door "Cabrio-Limousine" combined the four doors of the four door "Limousine" with a full length foldaway canvas roof.
There was a two door two seater "Cabriolet A" and a two door four seater "Cabriolet B" both with luggage storage behind the seats and beneath the storage location of the hood when folded (but without any external lid for accessing the luggage from outside the car). A common feature of the 170V bodies was external storage of the spare wheel on the car's rear panel.

The 38M Toldi was produced and developed under license from the Swedish Landsverk L-60B between 1939 and 1942. Only 202 were produced. Toldi tanks entered Hungarian service in 1940. They first saw action with the Hungarian Army against Yugoslavia in 1941. These tanks were mostly used against the USSR between 1941-1944. Because of their light armor, armament and good communications equipment, they were mostly used for reconnaissance. The design was no match against Soviet T-34 medium tanks encountered during the early stages of Operation Barbarossa.
The kit consists of 433 parts on 17 sprues including the upper and lower hulls. There are also 21 photo etch detail parts. Markings for one tank are included.

This set consists of five figures all conducting some basic tank maintenance. The figures come on two sprues with 35 parts. The box art and instructions on the back of the box show the figures as completed. The first figure is a commander watching the others work, the second is either entering or exiting the right side turret hatch, the third is running the barrel cleaner up the barrel, the fourth appears to be cleaning the turret machine gun, and the last is helping guide the barrel cleaner into the barrel. The poses are well done and depict a reasonable amount of action.Product Code: 35141 (2012)

- The Battle of Arnhem, initiated by an air drop of British and Polish paratroopers, took place from 17-26 September 1944. As part of Operation Market Garden, the aim of this famous battle was to capture the Arnhem Bridge over the Lower Rhine in Holland. The successful capture of a series of bridges, culminating in Arnhem Bridge, would facilitate an Allied advance into Germany itself. Unfortunately for the Allies, the German defenders put up stiff resistance and rushed reinforcements to the area, finally smothering the airborne assault. In the final analysis, this was a victory for German forces, although Allied forces did create a salient into Holland that they could eventually exploit. The latest 1/35 scale figure set from Dragon depicts four German servicemen who are participating in the Battle of Arnhem. The four figures are cleanly and sharply sculpted by the famous Japanese sculptor Hirano Yoshitaka for maximum life-likeness, and together they form a vignette straight out of the box. Two wounded tankers have survived the destruction of their tank by British paratroopers, and they now aid each other as they make their way to a casualty treatment center. These bandaged figures are designed to fit together as a pair in this realistic pose. They are supported by two Panzergrenadiers from one of the units thrown into Arnhem to stop the British. These remaining figures are well made in terms of pose, proportion and detail, including one soldier offering a cigarette to the wounded tankers. While these four figures are ideal for a scene from the desperate fighting in Arnhem, they are also versatile enough to be used in a different scene or theater should a modeler choose to do so.
- This finely detailed plastic model kit requires assembly and painting.
The 49 tan coloured parts come neatly wrapped in a resealable bag that is popular today. As part of this you also receive a small booklet that gives a short biography for each pilot included in the set. This booklet is not too bad and comes with the biographies in English and German, unfortunately some of the translations are not the best. The pilots are:
- Lidia (Lily) Litviak - Flew 186 combat missions by the time of her death on 01 Aug 1943 (17 days short of her 22nd birthday). Lidia flew the La-5, Yak-1 and Yak-1b fighters, participated in 69 battles, was accredited 12 solo kills, 2 group kills, and one balloon spotter.
- Saburo Sakai - One of the highest scoring Japanese fighter aces. He started operations in China and survived until the end of the war. Saburo Sakai logged over 3700 hours of flight time during the war, took part in nearly 200 dogfights, downed or damaged more than 60 planes, never wore a parachute, was never shot down nor did he damage or destroy a plane during landing. Also of interest, he did not lose any of his wing men during the war.
- Richard Ira "Dick" Bong - Major Bong flew in the Pacific campaign and was awarded many medals for his exploits. He flew the P-38 Lightning and show down 40 aircraft, of which 35 were "Zero's". He died on 06 Aug 1945 whilst conducting a test flight of the P-80 jet fighter.
- Werner Molders - Molders was a prominent German fighter pilot as well as tactician that started his military career in Spain during 1938. During the war Molders managed to shoot down 100 aircraft and was awarded many medals from the Luftwaffe. He died whilst on the way to the funeral of Ernst Udet in a He-111 that crashed due to engine problems.
- James Edgar "Johnnie" Johnson - The second highest Ace in the RAF during WWII with more than 1000 combat flights, show down 34 single engined fighters and seven shared and three probables. After the war he went on to fight in Korea during the early 50's, became an Air Vice Marshall and the Air Officer Commanding (AOC) Middle East Air Force. AVM Johnson retired in 1966 and died on 30th Jan 2001.
- Albert Marcel - A Frenchman who served in the French Air Force during the beginning of WWI then also served in the RAF and finally in the Russian Air Force after General DeGaulle offered the Soviets a detachment of pilots. During the war he made 193 combat flights, shot down 23 aircraft (10 unconfirmed on top of that figure) and appointed a Hero of the Soviet Union due to his services with the Russians.
The Type 95 was a 7.4-tonne vehicle with a complement of 3 crewmen: a commander, a hull machine gunner, and a driver. Only the commander was seated in the turret, hence he was responsible for observation, loading, aiming, firing the main gun, as well as decision-making and commanding the crew. The hand-operated turret was small and extremely cramped.
The primary armament of the most produced version was a Type 98 37 mm gun with the barrel length of 46.1 calibers. It elevated between −15 to +20 degrees. The tank carried two types of 37 mm ammunition, the high-explosive and armor-piercing. For the latter, muzzle velocity was 675–700 m/s, and the armor penetration was 25 mm at a distance of 500 m.
Secondary armament consisted of two 7.7 mm Type 97 light machine guns, one mounted in the hull and the other in the turret, not coaxially with the main gun but facing to the rear right (that is, in the five-o-clock direction).

The light tank M 24 has been a project required by the US Army at the end of the 2nd World War to replace the armored vehicles M 8 and M 20 Greyhound that were having serious problems to fight with similar vehicles of the German army. The Chaffee, equipped with a 76 mm gun, was able to fulfill these requirements providing a vehicle with a faster speed and a better equipment. The M 24, mainly active in Italy and Germany during the final phase of the 2nd World War, has been in service with the Allies armies for many years in the Fifties, mainly with the French army during the Indochina war.
The Jeep is as synonymous with Americans in WWII and Korea as anything else. Though the actual vehicles used for what was the jeep's original mission have changed, the concept is basically the same. A relatively small four wheel drive vehicle for transporting men and priority supplies as well as being used for light recce. Its ability to travel and relatively high speeds on prepared surfaces and yet go off road with little problem made the Jeep the icon of the war that it became. Even modern Jeeps are instantly recognizable as such for the basic look has been unchanged, though refined, since the early 1940s.
The 37mm anti-tank gun is pretty much a copy of the German gun of the same calibre and size, only built with non-metric bolts and such. While this gun was quite effective for the Germans during the Spanish Civil War and early in WWII, by the time the US entered the conflict in the west, it was totally obsolete against German tanks. However, it was somewhat effective against Italian armor so used in the Mediterranean. Same can be said for its use against Japanese armor and it continued to be used until the end of the war in the Pacific.

The first field kitchens were carried by military units on campaign throughout history in four-wheeled wagons. Indeed, this method of feeding a large travelling group of people was often used, such as on the Wagon Trail in late 19th Century America where the Chuckwagon was employed. By the 20th Century, smaller two-wheeled trailers, became common, especially with the invention of locomotive travel. Field Kitchens were often given affectionate nicknames, during WWI the Germans came to refer to their field kitchens as Gulaschkanone (Goulash Cannons) because the chimney of the stove resembled ordnance pieces when disassembled and limbered for towing. As technology has advanced larger trailers have evolved as horses were phased out in favour of motorized vehicles more capable of towing heavier loads. In WWII the mobile canteens was used as a morale booster in the United Kingdom, fitting in with the culture of the tea break and in particular as a result of the successful wartime experiment of the tea lady on productivity and morale. The larger mobile kitchens (now commonly called "flying kitchens" because of the greater speed with which they can be deployed) can service entire battalions of troops.
