Trumpeter 1/16 German Pz.Beob.Wg. IV Ausf.J

The Panzerkampfwagen IV (Pz.Kpfw. IV) Sd Kfz 161, commonly known as the Panzer IV, was a medium tank developed in Nazi Germany in the late 1930s and used extensively during the Second World War. Its ordnance inventory designation was Sd.Kfz. 161. Designed as an infantry-support tank, the Panzer IV was not originally intended to engage enemy armour—that function was performed by the lighter Panzer III. However, with the flaws of pre-war doctrine becoming apparent, and in

Trumpeter Soviet Aerosan RF-8/GAZ-98

The Russians used aerosans for reconnaissance and light raiding in northern areas where their light plywood skis allowed them to move quickly over the deep snow where other heavy vehicles would be unable to move at all.   However they were lightly powered and so could only be used on open country or frozen lakes as they had poor hill climbing ability. The GAZ-98 was developed in 1942 and is powered by a GAZ-M1 truck engine

Trumpeter 1/200 Bismark (WIP)

With over 1,700 parts here is a sight we don't see everyday. The famed Kriegsmarine battleship and the lead ship in his class from Trumpeter Models in a colossal 1/200 scale is kindly presented here as a work in progress project by MkReview.com reader Terry Cornell.

1/48 Trumpeter Supermarine Attacker F.1

The Attacker developed from a Royal Air Force (RAF) fighter jet project, under Air Ministry Specification E.10 of 1944 (the E for experimental). The design of the Attacker used the laminar flow straight-wings of the Supermarine Spiteful, a piston-engined fighter intended to replace the Supermarine Spitfire, and what became the Attacker was originally referred to as the "Jet Spiteful".  The project was intended to provide an interim fighter for the RAF while another aircraft, the Gloster

Trumpeter 1/72 USMC LCAC

The landing craft air cushion (LCAC) is a high-speed, over-the-beach fully amphibious landing craft capable of carrying a 60-75 ton payload. It is used to transport weapons systems, equipment, cargo and personnel from ship to shore and across the beach. The advantages of air-cushion landing craft are numerous. They can carry heavy payloads, such as an M-1 tank, at high speeds. Their payload and speed mean more forces reach the shore in a shorter time,

The Schnellboot or S-boot was a type of German torpedo boat that saw service during WWII. The S-boote were approximately twice as large as their American and British counterparts, were better suited for the open sea, and had a substantially longer range, at approximately 700 nautical miles.

New Trumpeter T-62 ERA

Soviet T-64B MOD 1975 The T-64 was conceived in Kharkov as the next generation main battle tank by Alexander A. Morozov designer of the well known Russian T-54. A revolutionary feature of the T-64 is the incorporation of an automatic loader for its 125-mm gun, allowing a crew member's position to be omitted, and helping to keep the size and weight of the tank down. The T-64B of 1976 would be able to fire a guided antitank
