Jagdpanzer Elefant Exterior Detail Set

Published: April 23, 2013
Company: Eduard

Since Tamiya released their version of the Elefant, it had been on my wish list. Upon obtaining the kit, I noticed that it needed some more details. Italeri and Dragon both make a 1/35th scale Elefant and with proper adjustments they can be make into nice models.

The Tamiya detail set from Eduard contains two frets and nice, readable instructions. The fenders are really well detailed… more

Pz.Kpfw.IV L/70(A)

Published: February 26, 2013
Company: Dragon Models

Upon receiving this kit in the mail, I looked over the artwork on the box top to see which paint scheme I thought would be cool to do. I noticed a camouflaged scheme that had a blue pattern. Immediately, I questioned the blue color. I checked the instructions and yes, there it was – sky blue color callouts. The other thing that I noticed, aside from the standard Dragon instruction, was there… more

8.8cm PaK-43 Waffentrager

Published: February 26, 2013
Company: Trumpeter

Upon receiving this kit, I was thinking why was Trumpeter making one of these? I didn’t know anyone else made one until doing some research, and I found a few companies did. ARK models from Russia makes a Waffentrager, along with Alan Models. Whether or not this is the same mold, I can’t say. Upon opening the box, you get 10 sprues of orange plastic (very similar to that which ICM uses), 10… more

Another finely detailed aftermarket upgrade from Eduard on their Brassin product line, these 1/72 wheels are made of resin and are more detailed than the kit parts.

In my opinion, Eduard makes some of the best decals on the market, and this set for the BF-110 looks superb.

Messerschmitt Bf-110E

Company: Eduard

The Bf-110 went though not only technical changes throughout its career, but also through a development of its operational use. It entered the war as a heavy escort and attack fighter. By the time of the Battle of Britain, it became apparent that the aircraft, in the role of escort fighter, had been pushing the envelope of its capabilities. On the contrary, as a defensive weapon against… more

Sd.Kfz.167 Sturmgeschutz IV

Published: October 11, 2012
Company: Italeri

Sturmgeschutz, abbreviated StuG, was the weapon of the Strumartillerie, the branch of the German Artillery tasked with close fire support of infantry. StuGs were very successful in their intended support role and destroyed, among others, many bunkers, pillboxes, and other defenses. The StuG is not generally considered to be a true tank because it lacks a turret. The gun was mounted directly in… more
