In WWII fighters of the same nation or family often shared many components – for example the Typhoon and Tempest - the Fairey Firefly I and Barracuda along with the Corsair and Hellcat used the same types of tyre and wheel. Barracuda Studios has seen a nice gap in the market for some super detailed and most importantly accurate tyres and hubs for your fave of these above mentioned fighters – these seven new sets are due to be very popular indeed.

Having a doozie with your Doobi? Don’t know your D9’s from your be-hind? This may just be the book for you..
Today we read the new Desert Eagle book on the D9 Armoured bulldozer of the IDF – there has been precious little reference on this until now and builders of the MENG kit have had to scour everywhere the can to get reference on this special vehicle. It seems with this book your prayers are answered – let’s see…

Verlinden’s new Red devil with a dead eye – we review the 2775 1/16th scale “British Red Devil Sniper”
“Red devils” as they were called by the Germans who opposed them and then as a nickname they assumed – the elite British Paratrooper corps was one of the best fighting units to see action in the second world war. Verlinden has made a new figure from resin replicating one of their deadliest – a sniper in 1/16th scale. Is he off target or on the mark? Let’s have a look in our review…

There is STILL a dearth of choices in the 1/32nd scale aircraft scene of figures and accessories and vehicles to go along with your cherished aircraft – all too often they sit forlorn without a touch of life on the scene that a figure can add. If you are loaded you can buy any number of the most excellent resin figures on the market – but why has no model company really embraced figures of this scale on a larger number - Sales? Difficulty? Or is the market too small? Well MasterBox have taken up the challenge – this is their third kit in 32nd scale - “RAF Pilots, WWII Era.” We build them up for you in our review…

We have not seen much in the way of Hungarian combatants during WWII – I mean compared with the other Axis powers' representation in model kits you would think they weren’t there. Hungarians however served a large part in the conflict and so MiniArt have produced these new tankers to match the new kits from Bronco made specifically it seems for them – or the other way around – not too sure – but let’s have a look at them and build them up for you to see their true worth.
