1/24 Lamborghini Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole

This month's Italeri release is all about opposites! The intense speed of Lamborghinis and the Mirage III versus the slow grinding of WWI. The peaceful and prosperous DAF 95 versus the indomitable and destructive Churchill tank. No matter the subject, Italeri brings painstaking detail to every model. For display pieces that look riveting, whether they're tearing up the track or the North African desert, choose Italeri. Four times the firepower, four times the fun! Lamborghini unveiled the

Italeri 1/48 Combat Aircraft Support Group

This is the Italeri 1/48 Combat Aircraft Support Group which I believe it was sold under the ESCI label. It does features a nicely model towing tractor, bomb loader and a boarding ladder.

Italeri 1/35 LVT-4 Water Buffalo

The LVT had its origins in a civilian rescue vehicle called the Alligator. Developed by Donald Roebling in 1935, the Alligator was intended to operate in swampy areas, inaccessible to both traditional cars and boats. Two years later, Roebling built a redesigned vehicle with greatly improved water speed. The United States Marine Corps, which had been developing amphibious warfare doctrine based on the ideas of Lt. Col. Earl Hancock "Pete" Ellis and others, became interested
