Master Box 1:35 German Motorcycle & Sidecar WWII - Plastic Figure Model Kit #3528
The kit represents the German BMW R75 motorcycle with a sidecar which can be mounted with either an MG 34 or an MG 42 machine gun. The development of the R75 started in 1938 following a request from the German Army. Initial units were equipped with 750 cc side valve engines, however later they were replaced by new OHV 750 cc engines. The R75 was proved highly manoeuvrable and suitable for off-road conditions. Even today a well-restored vehicle can perform well both on and off-road.
The R75 was deployed by German troops in the USSR and Northern Africa during WWII. It remained in production until 1944 when the Eisenach factory was bombed by the Allied forces. The success of the motorcycle during the war inspired the US military who asked Harley-Davidson to create a similar vehicle for the US Army. So the Harley-Davidson XA was produced, a close copy of the R-75.
The kit contains parts for the assembly of one R-75 motorcycle with a sidecar and a gun. Two gun options are provided: the MG 34 and the MG 42. Glue and paint are not included.

Master Box 1:35 - German Military Car, Mercedes-Benz Type 170V, Tourenwagen (4 doors) 1937-1940 - Plastic Figure Model Kit #35100
The Mercedes-Benz W136 was Mercedes-Benz's line of inline-four cylinder automobiles from the mid-1930s into the 1950s. Between 1936 and 1939 it was Mercedes' top selling model. Between 1936 and 1942 over 75,000 were built making it by far the most popular Mercedes-Benz model up till that point.
Enough of the W136's tooling survived Allied bombing during World War II (or could be recreated post-war) for it to serve as the foundation upon which the company could rebuild. By 1947 the model 170V had resumed its place as Mercedes' top-seller, a position it held until 1953.
The "V" in the 170V'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.
