About the Armored Carrier UE

Originally developed in the early 1930s, this light armored carrier was capable of towing light artillery and was also designed for use in supplying infantry units at the front lines. Its compact design meant that the heads of the two crew members protruded from the chassis, so distinctive semi-spherical hatches were created to give them a little protection. The initial production of 60 vehicles was soon supplemented by larger orders as France sought to re-equip its army to face the growing threat of Germany. By 1940, approximately 4,800 had been built, including an improved version featuring 4-step gearbox and towing shackles. It was used in the early days of WWII by the French army until its surrender, after which the German army used captured vehicles until the end of the war, modifying some of them into self-propelled guns.

Defender of the Republic
In May 1940, B1 bis tanks stood in the way of German armies determined to strike a crushing against France on her own soil. Introduced as an upgraded version of the original Char B1, which was developed in the nineteen twenties, the B1 bis entered production in 1937. The rivet-joined hull mounted a short-barreled 75mm howitzer, while a small, one-man turret carried a longer-barreled 47mm tank gun. The B1 bis was one of the most heavily armored tanks of its time, with plating that was 60mm thick in places, more than capable of defending against anti-tank fire such as that from 37mm Pak guns. The B1 bis could more than hold its own against individual German tanks, and was greatly feared by enemy soldiers who encountered it.

Product: 1:35 JGSDF Light Arm. Vehicle Iraq(1)

With the HMV Hayate and Type 73 Small Utility Vehicle fitted with little armor and having poor defense capabilities, in 1997 the Japanese Ground Self Defense Force (JGSDF) began development of a new high-mobility light armored transportation vehicle. Capable of accommodating 4 personnel, the JGSDF Light Armored Vehicle is fitted with a 160hp liquid cooled 4-cycle 4-cylinder diesel engine, allowing it to reach top speeds of 100km/h. Weighing just 4.5 tons, it is able to be carried by a CH-47J helicopter or C-130H transport aircraft for emergency air-drops. The gun mount on the roof can be fitted with a 5.56mm MINIMI machine gun or Light Anti-Tank Guided Missile. Vehicles deployed to Iraq were fitted with reinforced bulletproof windshields, with some vehicles fitted with wire cutters and a rotational armored cover around the gun mount for extra protection.

Product: 1:35 Ger. Kingtiger Ardennen Fro. (3)

Development of the massive King Tiger began in February 1943 to counter the increasing threat of Russian Tanks. A more powerful cannon was added, upgrading from the L56, 88mm of the Tiger I to the Type 43 L71, 88mm high velocity gun. The chassis front armor was 150mm thick with 80mm thick side armor. The Henschel and Porsche companies came up with rival turret prototypes. After the trial production of 50 tanks with the Porsche turret, the Henschel design, with its extremely thick armor that measured 185mm on the front and 88mm on the side panels, was adopted for mass production. The Henschel turret itself was revised mid-way through production, from a stepped gun mantle to a smooth one. Due to the havoc wreaked by the King Tiger I during the final German offensive on the Ardennes front in December of 1944, the Allied forces that moved in on Berlin would fear the King Tiger up until the very last day of the war. As for the DKW NZ350 military motorcycle, production began in 1940. However, this German military motorcycle experienced mid-production changes when resources became limited towards the end of the war. DKW NZ350s at that time were seen with smaller headlights and thinned-out fenders.

About the "Famo"
In the wake of Blitzkrieg advances made by the Wehrmacht at the outbreak of WWII, the recovery of damaged or broken tanks from the battlefield proved relatively simple. After securing an area, reinforcing divisions could easily send inoperative vehicles back to the homeland for repair via railway. However, in the seesaw battles with the British Army in North Africa and against the Russian Army on the Russian front, the quick replenishment of tank strength became an indispensable element of Wehrmacht battle strategy. The utilization of the 18 ton Heavy Half-Track "Famo" proved fundamental to this strategy. The proposal for the development of the Wehrmacht half-tracks was first made in 1932. Originally, three half-tracks, designated by their towing capability (5 ton, 8 ton and 12 ton) were designed, until 1936, when a light 3 ton vehicle and a heavy 18 ton vehicle, the largest one in the Wehrmacht, were also added. The 18 ton half track was mainly developed for the towing of 21cm and 24cm artillery howitzer and of course for tank recovery. It could also be used for the transport of over 30 troops.

About the Model

About the Möbelwagen
In the latter half of World War II, the Wehrmacht, having lost air superiority to the Allies, turned to the development of anti-aircraft vehicles. The first vehicle to use the chassis of the Panzer IV tank as a base was the Self Propelled AA Gun Mobelwagen. The mass-production model started to be manufactured in February 1944. It was equipped with a powerful 3.7 Flak 43 cannon capable of firing 250 shots/min, and thick armored plates surrounding the upper part of the vehicle, which could be raised or lowered for horizontal firing. By 1945, a total of 240 vehicles were produced, most of which were deployed to the western front, providing a vicious defense against approaching fighters and bombers of the Allies.

About the Model
★This is the plastic model assembly kit based on the German Self Propelled AA Gun Möbelwagen. ★Overall length: 168mm, overall width 82mm. ★The unique style of the Flak 43 equipped mass production model has been realistically recreated. ★Gun barrel of Flak 43 and sighting device move together on arm to enhance authenticity. ★Ammunition ejection net has been recreated with nylon mesh for added realism. ★Sliding hatch on the upper chassis has been included as a separately molded part.

Product: 1:35 US Willys Jeep MB 4x4 (1)

Without a doubt the Jeep Willys MB occupies a significant position in the whole automotive history. The origin of the Jeep vehicle dates back to early 1941, when U.S. Forces ordered the Willys, Ford, and Bantam companies to develop prototypes of a small sized multi-purpose 4-wheel drive vehicle. During the early stage of WW2, Germany had achieved outstanding successes by using motorized troops with their "Blitzkrieg" tactics. It became a pressing need for allied nations to possess tough and reliable vehicles with excellent cross-country ability. In November 1941, the Army, with alterations on the front grille and hood to the Ford design, chose the Willy"s vehicle as the basis for the mass production model. This marked the birth of the Willys MB (Model B) that provided unmatched ability to transport Allied troops during the conflict. The early Willys MB had a welded, slat type front grille. Due to the necessity of increasing production, the Army ordered Ford to join the mass production using the Willys MB"s blueprints. It was designated the GPW, and a simple, pressed steelfront grille was introduced. During WW2, the Willys MB and Ford GPW ran over every battlefield. As a means of transit for soldiers, it played an important role in bringing the Allied victory. It was also used for liason, command, communication and sometimes even as an ambulance for a light firearms carrier. Production reached approximately 640,000 units by August 1945.

Product: 1/35 US Marine AAVP 7A1 w/ UGWS Turret

This is a re-issue of the 1/35 scale model kit of the AAVP7A1 amphibious troop transport. First introduced in 1972 under the name of LVTP-7, this venerable vehicle has seen a number of upgrades and refits, and is still deployed by the U.S. Marine Corps today. It has seen action in a number of conflicts including the 1983 invasion of Grenada, the Gulf War and 2003 invasion of Iraq. Newer variants were fitted with the Up-Gunned Weapon Station (UGWS), a turret mounted with an MK19 40mm grenade launcher and M2 heavy barrel .50 caliber machine gun.

Amphibious operations (the landing of personnel, equipment and supplies from ships onto a hostile shore) are considered by military tacticians to be the most complex and difficult of all military operations. The U.S. Marine Corps is the military organization in America charged with this responsibility. Formerly known as the LVTP7A1, the FMC manufactured AAVP7A1 now has the role of an Assault Amphibious Vehicle, Personnel, to counter any hostile threat during landing operations. This versatile vehicle can navigate in the ocean waves 3 meters high while carrying 25 fully equipped Marines and can even withstand total immersion without sinking. It is a very large tracked vehicle, being almost the same length as the U.S. M1A1 Abrams main battle tank. The latest version is equipped with a newly designed turret known as the "Upgunned Weapons station", which is manufactured by the Cadillac Gage firm, in America. The turret is a one man armament station mounting the MK 19 Model-3 40mm (grenade) machine gun and a coaxially mounted M2 heavy barrel .50 caliber machine gun. The primary mode of operation for the armament station is manual. However, in azimuth the system incorporates a Power Assist Travers (PAT) mechanism. The PAT enables the gunner to quick slew under power at a minimum rate of 45 deg./sec., and then manually fine lay his weapon
