Academy 1:35 - German Pz. Kpfw. VI Tiger I Early version, no interior with 4 figures - Plastic model kit #13264 (ACA01386)
The Tiger I, a German heavy tank of World War II, was deployed from 1942 in Africa and Europe commonly in independent heavy tank battalions with the designation Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger Ausf. E often shortened to Tiger. The Tiger I gave the Wehrmacht its first armoured fighting vehicle that used the KwK 36 88-mm gun. In total 1,347 were built between August 1942 and August 1944. Production was over time phased out in favour of the Tiger II.
The Tiger I has been called an excellent design for its time, however it was over-engineered, using expensive materials and labour-intensive production methods. The Tiger was prone to some types of track failures and breakdowns, and had limited range given its high fuel consumption. It was expensive to run, but normally mechanically reliable. It was also difficult to transport, and vulnerable to immobilisation when mud, ice and snow froze between its overlapping and interleaved Schachtellaufwerk-pattern road wheels, often causing them to jam. This was a problem on the Eastern Front in the muddy rasputitsa (semi-annual mud seasons) and winter weather conditions.
The tank was named "Tiger" by Ferdinand Porsche, and the Roman numeral was added after the later Tiger II entered production. The early designation was Panzerkampfwagen VI Ausführung H (‘‘Panzer VI version H’’, abbreviated PzKpfw VI Ausf. H) where 'H' denoted Henschel as the designer/manufacturer. It was given ordnance inventory designation SdKfz 182. The tank was later redesignated as PzKpfw VI Ausf. E in March 1943, with ordnance inventory designation SdKfz 181.
Tigers had a crew of 5. They could travel up to 23mph on roads and were powered by the Maybach 21, 353cc V-12 engines that delivered 642hp.

Master Box 1:35 - LRDG in North Africa, WWII era - Plastic Figure Model Kit #3598
Originally called the Long Range Patrol (LRP), the unit was founded in Egypt in June 1940 by Major Ralph A. Bagnold, acting under the direction of General Archibald Wavell. Bagnold was assisted by Captain Patrick Clayton and Captain William Shaw. At first the majority of the men were from New Zealand, but they were soon joined by Southern Rhodesian and British volunteers, whereupon new sub-units were formed and the name was changed to the better-known Long Range Desert Group (LRDG). The LRDG never numbered more than 350 men, all of whom were volunteers.
The LRDG was formed specifically to carry out deep penetration, covert reconnaissance patrols and intelligence missions from behind Italian lines, although they sometimes engaged in combat operations. Because the LRDG were experts in desert navigation they were sometimes assigned to guide other units, including the Special Air Service and secret agents across the desert. During the Desert Campaign between December 1940 and April 1943, the vehicles of the LRDG operated constantly behind the Axis lines, missing a total of only 15 days during the entire period. Possibly their most notable offensive action was during Operation Caravan, an attack on the town of Barce and its associated airfield, on the night of 13 September 1942. However, their most vital role was the 'Road Watch', during which they clandestinely monitored traffic on the main road from Tripoli to Benghazi, transmitting the intelligence to British Army Headquarters.
With the surrender of the Axis forces in Tunisia in May 1943, the LRDG changed roles and moved operations to the eastern Mediterranean, carrying out missions in the Greek islands, Italy and the Balkans. After the end of the war in Europe, the leaders of the LRDG made a request to the War Office for the unit to be transferred to the Far East to conduct operations against the Japanese Empire. The request was declined and the LRDG was disbanded in August 1945.
This kit includes the figures of 5 LRDG soldiers, it does not include the vehicle, the pictured vehicle is a Tamiya 1/35 scale kit.
This set contains photo-etched coloured insignia and medals used by the German forces during the Second World War. It helps add extra details to the models and get the finished look.

The Leichter Panzerspähwagen was a light four-wheel drive armoured car produced by Nazi Germany between 1935 and 1944. It had the standard sPkw I Horch 801 chassis and a 67 kW (90 hp) Horch 3.5 petrol engine, which gives it a road speed of 80 km/h and a cross-country speed of 40 km/h. The car had a maximum range of 300 km. Its armament consisted of one 2 cm KwK 30 L/55 main cannon and one MG 34 secondary machine gun.
The Leichter Panzerspähwagen was used by the reconnaissance battalions of the Panzer divisions. It performed well enough in countries with good road networks, like Western Europe, but on the Eastern Front and in North Africa it was hampered by its relatively poor off-road performance and was gradually replaced in the reconnaissance role by the Sdkfz 250 half-track.

Academy 1:35 - Warrior MCV "Iraq 2003" - Plastic model kit #13201
The Warrior is a modern infantry combat vehicle of British origin also known as the MCV-80 according to its initial designation. Started in the late 1970s by GKN Sankey, its development was commissioned by the UK Army that sought a replacement for the older FV432 series. The vehicle is aimed to defend the crew from enemy gunfire and to ensure fire-power support during land operations. Its crew includes: driver, gunner, commander and seven soldiers in full gear.
The Warrior carried British troops to the battlefield during the Invasion of Iraq that started in 2003 and marked the beginning of the Iraq War. The Invasion lasted for 21 days and resulted in the overthrow of Saddam Hussein's regime. The campaign against the Iraqi government was conducted by the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland. Along with the War in Iraq, the Warrior vehicles were used during the Gulf War and the war in Afghanistan.

Meng Model 1:35 - IDF Infantry Set (2000-Present) - Plastic Figure Model Kit #HS-004
The infantry branch of the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) is known as the Israeli Infantry Corps. It consists of both regular and reserve service units and brigades led by the IDF's regional commands. The most of the IDF infantry soldiers are armed with MTAR-21 rifles. Additionally, they are equipped with several hand-thrown grenades.

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.

Miniart 1:35 - British Bantam 40 BRC w/Crew - Plastic model kit #35050
At the outbreak of WWII, the American Army starting looking for a General Purpose Vehicle. The American Bantam Company came up with a design that passed rigorous testing, but they didn’t have the required capacity for the mass production. As the Government now owned the design, they contracted out the build to Willys Overland and Ford in 1941, and they came up with a slightly altered version in the form of the familiar Willys Jeep.
The American Bantam company did end up producing 2675 Bantam BRC- 40’s, but once the US Army standardised the production of the Ford and Willys version all the Bantams were either issued to Britain or Russia under the Lend Lease scheme. The British used the some of the limited number they received in the Desert Campaign in North Africa.

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.
This high quality acrylic putty is a water based one component polyurethane product designed for modelling. Comes in two variants - extra hard white putty and grey putty of standard hardness. It is a superfine filler with excellent adhesive and sanding properties. The product is water based and does not contain strong smelling chemicals. Does not shrink with drying. Can be cleaned off with water.

About 12 vehicles were made prior to Anschluss (incorporation of Austria into Nazi Germany, March 1938). After the Anschluss production continued. A total of 140 units were built with the new designation RK-7 (Räder-Kettenfahrgestell), although Wehrmacht called them Sd. Kfz. 254. The vehicle had a wheel/track layout and a diesel motor.

Miniart 1:35 - Dingo MK IB British Armoured Car w/Crew - Plastic Model Kit #35067
The Dingo was a British light two-man armoured car, relatively low and wide enough to have the required stability for fast off-road rides. Its initial armour was thin, just enough to stand against infantry ordnance. At the Army’s request, it was thickened, reaching 30mm (1.18 in) on the front nose and glacis. Deflecting armoured sloped panels were welded all around the central framework. The front driving compartment had four opening hatches. The engine was the regular Daimler 6-cyl 2.5 l 55 hp (41 kW), fed by a 300 l (79.25 gal) gasoline reserve (two tanks), which gave an incredibly long range for its small size. The transmission consisted of a pre-selector gearbox, fluid flywheel, five forward gears and five reverse gears, allowing steering with all four wheels. This feature gave the Dingo a very tight turning radius, only 7m (23 ft), but the system was tricky to master for inexperienced drivers, so a more conventional design with front-wheel steering was chosen.
During the course of wartime production, it appeared that the flat bottom plate, which allowed the crossing of uneven ground, was highly vulnerable to mines. The rubber tires were of the run-flat semi-solid type, so no spares were carried, but their toughness was compensated by the massive vertical coil springs, to give a smooth ride. There was a swiveling seat next to the driver, for a machine-gun servant/radio operator, equipped with a N°19 wireless radio set. The base armament was a removable cal. 0.303 (7.7 mm) Bren gun, with a dozen spare magazines. This armament could be swapped over for a heavier Boys antitank rifle (cal 0.55 in/14 mm). This gave the vehicle, which was fast and well-protected, with a good engine and low profile, a real advantage against all sorts of light vehicles, making it perfectly suited for reconnaissance and liaison missions.
The Dingo was produced from 1939 to 1945, and remained virtually unaltered. The Mark IB was the third variant of the series. It had a reverse cooling air flow and new armoured grilles for the radiator, allowing better ventilation. The bulk of these vehicles served in the Libyan desert.
This kit represents a British Dingo MK IB armoured car and three British crew-members: a driver, an observer and an officer. All three figures are dressed in British desert uniforms and armed with holstered revolvers. The officer has a pair of binoculars, a water bottle and a map case.
The kit contains 218 parts.
Includes parts for one armoured car and three figures.

Academy 1:35 - M2A2 Bradley Iraq 2003 - Plastic Model Kit #13205
The M2 Bradley is an American infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) of the Bradley Fighting Vehicle family. It is used by US infantry units mainly for transportation and reconnaissance. Highly maneuverable and fast, it is able to protect the crew from small arms fire. Armed with the 25 mm M242 Chain Gun and TOW anti-tank missiles, the M2 Bradley is effective against major threats on battlefield. The vehicle is designed for a three-member crew (a commander, a gunner and a driver) and six soldiers carrying the necessary equipment.
The M2A2 version was issued in 1988. Featuring a better engine (600 hp or 447 kW) and a number of armour improvements, the M2A2 also had the ability to mount explosive reactive armour. The new armour also made the M2A2 amphibious. The turret of the vehicle acquired a semicircular shield which served as additional armour and provided more space for ammo storage.
The M2A2 and other M2 vehicles saw action during the the Gulf War in 1990 and Invasion of Iraq in 2003. In 2007 the production of the M2 Bradley was stopped and it was replaced by MRAPs which proved to be more durable in combat.
