Tamiya 1:35 - German Afrika Korps Infantry - Plastic Figure Model Set #35314
This set contains 5 figures depicting infantrymen from Field Marshal Rommel's vaunted Afrika Korps, including an officer, an NCO, a rifleman in firing position, a machine gunner, and a loader. Each can be assembled in a realistic pose and all feature superb details such as open-collared jackets, goggles, and long canvas boots.
The Afrika Korps uniform was basically the same as the one for Europe, but featured open collars and a specific armband on the right sleeve. The Olive Green cotton shirt and trousers faded into various shades in the desert sun. Leather was not suited for the dry conditions, so canvas belts and boots were worn. This uniform was easy to produce and influenced the design of European Theater uniforms from mid-WWII onwards.
This is a 1/35 scale plastic model assembly kit of the German Heavy Tank Destroyer Elefant.
Length: 236mm, Width: 97mm
The imposing form of the Elefant, including its 8.8cm gun and large fighting compartment, has been accurately reproduced based on a thorough study of an actual museum example. One-piece fighting compartment is made via slide moulding technique. The main gun, engine grilles, and detailed suspension are designed to ensure easy assembly. The tracks feature one-piece straight sections with realistic sag effect.
Kit comes with commander, loader, and driver torso figures. 3 marking options included to depict vehicles deployed to the Italian and Eastern fronts.
The German heavy tank destroyer Elefant was armed with a powerful 8.8cm L/71 gun which could knock out T-34 tanks at a distance of 2,000m, protected by armour up to 200mm thick, and equipped with advanced features such as a hybrid drivetrain. It had its roots in the Porsche-designed Ferdinand, which was first deployed into combat during the Battle of Kursk in 1943. The lessons learned from that battle resulted in modifications including the addition of a commander's cupola, a machine gun for infantry defence, and better tracks and the enhanced vehicle received the new designation Elefant in February 1944. Elefants were deployed to Italy and the Eastern Front, where they continued to defend against Allied forces until the final skirmishes of the war.
The German Panther tank was produced from 1943 until the end of WWII and deployed on the Eastern and Western Fronts in Europe. The tank was developed as a replacement for the Panzer III and Panzer IV tanks and was intended to counter the Soviet T-34. The Panther had a powerful 700hp Maybach engine and a turret placed far back on the hull mounting a 75mm L/70 cannon. The Panther's excellent firepower and protection made it one of the best tanks of World War II. The Panther was easier to produce and maintain than the Tiger I, but it is often considered to be as effective as the latter. The Ausf.G included versions with heater unit installed over the left engine fan, and with lower lip piece added to the mantlet to eliminate shot trap.
The Schwimmwagen Type 166 was an amphibious four-wheel drive off-roader produced by Volkswagen and extensively used by German ground forces during WWII. The Type 166 was made smaller than its prototypes in order to improve the vehicle's efficiency, and had a wheel-base of only 200 cm. From 1941 to 1944, over 15,500 Type 166 Schwimmwagen cars were produced, which made the VW 166 the most mass-produced amphibious car in history.
The kit includes parts for the assembly of one vehicle with a driver. Certain accessories pictured are not included.
Tamiya 1:35 - U.S. Tank T26E4 Super Pershing - Plastic Model Set #35319
The M26 Pershing was the first American tank capable of taking on the German Army's Tiger I and Panther tanks. The tank was introduced during the final stages of the Second World War. The T26E4 was a development of the M26 armed with a more powerful, long-barreled 90mm main gun. This gun was superior to the one found on the King Tiger heavy tank and could penetrate the Panther's frontal armour from long distances. The first T26E4 was sent to the European front in 1945. Subsequent models featured various improvements such as a modified gun mount.

Tamiya Extra Thin Cement 40ml - 87038
The Tamiya Extra Thin Cement 40ml is generally known as the best adhesive to glue together models that use polystyrene plastic (most model kits). The extra thin formula allows the modeller to glue together small pieces that require pin point accuracy and finesse using the fine brush included - instead of having the glue splashing about in unwanted areas causing damage.
