The German Molch was an 11 ton one-man midget submarine built in 1944. It was the first mini-submarine of the Kriegsmarine. The Molch was fully electrical, carried two G7e torpedoes - one on each side of the craft, and had a range of 64 km at 5 knots (9.3 km/h). 393 submarines were built in total, all by AG Weser in Bremen.
The Molch was first used to attack Allied battleships during the Allied Operation Dragoon. Ten out of the twelve submarines were lost and the remaining two were sunk by the Allies shortly after. In the following months the Molch was used in a number of operations but overall proved to be ineffective in combat and its use was reduced to training for more advanced submarines.

Blue Styrofoam Sheet (20mm, A4 Sized)
Ideal for diorama bases, can be glued, cut or shaped with heat. High density modelling foam.
Milliput Modelling Clay - Standard (Yellow/Grey)
Comes in packs containing 2 x 56·7gm. Sticks and the general instructions for preparation and usage are the same.
The two sticks have a long shelf life but once mixed the resultant putty is at first soft and highly adhesive and then gradually hardens. Speed of hardening is dependant on temperature and at normal temperatures (20-25ºC) Milliput becomes rock hard in three to four hours. By the application of heat the setting time can be reduced to a few minutes.
After setting hard Milliput continues to cure and is fully cured after an elapse of time equal to the setting time at the same temperature. Once fully cured Milliput can be machined, drilled, tapped, turned, filed, sawn, sandpapered and painted. Milliput can be sandpapered and painted immediately it has set. (it is advisable to wear eye protection during this process).
Milliput is an excellent adhesive and will bond any of the following to itself or to any of the others - wood, brick, cement, metals, concrete, plastics, glass etc, but note that Milliput is not intended as a thin layer adhesive and should not be used where a paste, mucilage or thin glue is indicated. Milliput will set under water and is heat resistant up to 130°C.
Academy 1:35 - M12 155mm GMC - Plastic model kit #13268
The U.S. 155mm Gun Motor Carriage M12 was a WWII self-propelled gun used from 1942 until the end of the war. A hundred vehicles were produced in total and initially those GMCs were intended for training. As the war progressed, it was decided to modify the M12s to prepare them for combat operations. The M12s were then successfully employed on the Western Front including the Allied assault of the Siegfried Line.
The M12 used the chassis of the M3 Lee tank. The 155mm gun was derived from the French 155mm GPF field gun. Due to the limited storage space, the vehicle could only carry 10 projectiles and propellant charges. The armoured driver's compartment was shared with the commander, and the gun crew were located at the back of the vehicle in an open top area.
Due to its powerful 155mm cannon, the vehicle was nicknamed "Doorknocker" and "King Kong". After the end of the war the M12 was replaced by the M40 Gun Motor Carriage.
Academy 1:35 - M7 105mm SPG Priest - Plastic Model Kit #13210
The M7 Priest, a 105 mm Howitzer Motor Carriage was an American self-propelled artillery vehicle used during World War II by US, British and French forces. It was named Priest by the British Army because of the pulpit-style machine gun ring, and following on in theme from the Bishop and the contemporary Deacon self-propelled guns.
