October/November 2012 New items from Verlinden

Verlinden Productions have sent information and pictures of their products to be released in This month  2012 – Including some much needed 1/32 airfield dioramas and some well-crafted figure – and what monthly new collection would be complete without a stowage and accessory set???

Verlinden Productions new items for October/November 2012.

2748 1:35 Scale SWS Ammo - Crew - Stowage $32.95
To suit the tracked Nebelwerfer carrier Verlinden supplies two troopers clad in warm weather reversible parkas. They are both carrying the ammo for the vehicle’s main armament and one of the soldiers is crouched loading the rocket into the cylinder.

Apart from the soldiers in this pack you get pretty much anything you would need to kit out your diorama. Spare rockets inside and outside their ammo carrying cases as well as many canvas swags and stowage bags are included – Personal weapons for the whole crew are included, with MP40’s to rifles, an MG 34 machine gun and even a pair of Panzershrek anti-tank rockets are included as well!

Not only these items – but “Jerry”cans, ammo boxes for the personal equipment, gas canister cases, mines, pistols in their holsters, backpacks, mess-containers, bread bags and canteens are also included in the swag of extra diorama accessories that will “fill out” your scene

2749 120mm Recon Vietnam $24.95

This hard-core looking special forces soldier from the Vietnam era is cast in 120mm and is very lifelike in his features – Armed only lightly with a specially sighted ( with a flash suppressor?) M-4 carbine, torch on his chest – a grenade and some tinted goggles on his face he certainly looks like is not hanging around for the duration.

Complimented by his light service cap and light battledress and long laved up boots this soldier looks like he needs to be unobstructed on his covert jungle mission.

2750 1:32 Scale Floodlight - Generator Cart Airbase $34.95 (one cart in box)

In service this is called a NF-2D Portable Floodlight Set – These are deployed at USAF and world-wide airports and provide light in the areas of the tarmac that regular lighting cannot access – and are also used to get inside heard to light areas to help with maintenance etc. We have shown both ways of displaying here - only one cart per box is included)

2751 1:32 Scale Generator - Gas Turbine EPU Airbase $36.95

This is the Airforce’s version of the Generator/ Gas turbine EPU unit. It is used to supply electrical AC/DC power to the aircraft whilst on the runway whilst the gas turbine is used to crank the jet engine.

2752 1:35 Scale Fallschirmjäger at Casino Vignette $34.95

What set of releases wouldn't have some SS or Fallschirmjägers in them? After all we all buy them! Well Verlinden keeps our interest by supplying this set of two German paratroopers from the Italian fortress of Monte Casino – a battlefield they are famous for defending in WWII.

This set not only features the two Airforce soldiers but also the small base complete with a column that the soldiers are fighting on – this is a complete vignette in itself. A one stop shop if you like. It is nice to see the figures relating to the surfaces they are placed on in this resin pack

October 2012 New items from Verlinden Productions.

The Much loved Corsair in 1/32 came from trumpeter and was a hit with the modelling fans straight away. The internal details though remain “Basic” It then came to aftermarket guys to improve on the left and right avionics bay.

This for the “D” USAF version of the Corsair II and the nose has a lovely surprise in having the complete radar dome section so you can display the nose cone open under maintenance. It certainly looks promising!

Again the Trumpeter kit in 1/32 gets a welcome reworking as the resin seat instrument panels and side consoles are detailed up magnificently in cream resin.
The front and rear inside of the canopy is detailed along with the excellent HUD frames which will make the poor old donor kit look pretty basic.
The whole resin shell sits neatly inside the cockpit and the whole shell of the kit and the rear frame sits inside the canopy as well – a great looking and finely detailed set which makes some of the others look average and the kit look very basic – Looking good!

This figure of an airman in the USAF in the Vietnam era looks ready to take on the enemy without the chopper! He wears of course his flight helmet and bullet proof flak jacket.

He carries on his belt a smoke grenade/canister as well as a frag and some spare ammo in a pouch with a water canteen. The airman also is wearing long boots with his combat pants tucked into them with a holster for the Colt.45 which he carries in his hand in this sculpt in cream resin.

This resin set is to deal up your excellent little Hilux pick up from Meng. Included primarily are two “freedom fighters” one whom is firing an RPG!!
There is a big Russian made AA gun and ammunition in boxes, four AK-47’s from two different countries of manufacture which suits the setting of getting them from wherever you can – There are stowage packs and swags of different origins as well as several “jerry” cans for petrol or water storage and even a gas canister and a sleeping swag, a pot and even a little “boom box”
This set can be used for modern day or even an earlier setting diorama such as The Russo Afghanistan war when the Taliban were out “friends” (check the end credits for Rambo III.)

Another excellent set made in resin to suit the German Pak 75 Anti-Tank gun, this set consists of a loader and a commander who is pointing at where the action is – both are dressed in winter gear and have protective gloves and clothing on to keep them safe from “General Winter”
To help then in their fight this resin pack also comprises of several ammo crates and spent and fresh ammo out of the boxes. Packs and sleeping rolls are included as are several personal equipment items like gas mask canisters, map packs, bread bags, canteens and cups, a mess tin and some weapons for self-protection (or decoration) – two MP40’s and a soviet PPsh41..

Verlinden Productions new items for September 2012.

 2738 1:35 scale Cable Reels $32.95
These cable reels look to be just the thing for an industrial diorama – for a city landscape  strewn with debris to a factory in Stalingrad to an a ruined airfield in Italy – this large cable reel looks to be an interesting add on to your scene.
Supplied in a package that contains three different sized drums in cream resin as well as a frame to rollout your cable – well all you need now IS the cable!

2739 1:35 scale Duster Crew Ammo Stowage $32.95
To suit the new AFV Club’s M-46 kit – this combines with Verlinden’s 2740 “duster interior” kit to bring much needed detail to your American twin barrelled mobile tank.
The resin parts include of course lots and lots of ammunition - shells and full rounds, with containers to place them in along with two crew members and all of their personal gear.

These tankers have their duffel bags, personal equipment and packs included, along with their side arms and pack equipment, cooking gear and storage boxes  – we have the gunner’s position sorted out for our Duster -  now all we need is a kit for the inside of the tank…

2740 1:35 scale Duster Interior (Driver's) $29.95
Well now we have an internal kit for just that! The driver’s compartment here is reproduced in cream resin. You get part of the engine and rear suspension along with the driver’s controls and seats.
Internally this can all be seen of the rear doors are open, and this would now encourage modellers to do this with their kits – what a way to make your kit stand out from the crowd on the modelling table!

2741 1:35 scale T55 Turret Point Blank $28.95
Verlinden likes these!  This is another point-blank turret to have on your firing range to either add to your others in this series or to add to your diorama or battlefield scene. You could imagine this with victorious Israeli soldiers standing on top of it getting their picture taken.

2742 1:32 scale Luftwaffe Fuel Drum Trailer $31.95
To top off this month’s releases we have a great addition to their Luftwaffe airfield scene in the addition to their catalogue of this nifty little trailer that carries fuel drums out to the aircraft – now all we need is a horse to pull it to your  Me 262!
This kit in cream resin contains four drums with the German writing on them identifying them as Luftwaffe stock as well as the trailer that carries them – I suppose you could use them in any European airfield diorama of the time – a German or captured base being used by the allies. This will be very popular and we will build one for you very soon.

Verlinden Productions products for August
 Kit 2733 - British Infantryman of the Zulu War - 120mm - $26.95
This redcoat British “Soldier of the line” carries his famous scarlet colours and blue serge pants. Feverishly reloading his rifle the bearded soldier has all of the right things in the right place in this 1200mm sculpt. From the buff coloured (off white) webbing and white Foreign Service pointed helmet to the blue pants with red stripes down either side to the expression on his face he is well sculpted. There is no “long face” on this sculpture!!
The serviceman is taking a bullet from his pouch to place in his Martini-Henri rifle which was the difference between the soldiers and certain death in the Zulu Wars.

Kit 2734 - M21 Mortar Stowage + Ammo + Crew - 1:35 - $29.95

These two G.I.’s accompany this M21 Mortar halftrack (not supplied here) but what is supplied is pretty much all of the ammo, stowage and things this car could carry! Included in this kit is a large .50 Cal machine gun, ammo crates and shells to go inside – or outside them, backpacks and personals along with tarps rolled up and “jerry” cans along with duffel bags, mines, binoculars, flasks and a tool box. Couldn’t fit much more in the M21 really!

This kit contains the entire forward interior of this tank includes everything you would see inside the tank. Front drives as well as all of the controls for the tank and crew seating and internal instruments are all there.

Kit 2737 - Airbase / Carrier Used Oil Carts - 1:32 - $29.95

What a great addition to your late WWII cold war air base!  This kit looks like you could use it in one or several dioramas depending on the colour or dispersal of the carts.This is an expansion and maybe a slight modernizing of their earlier pair of the WWII carts but could be used on pretty much any base diorama from WWII onward. The set contains a large four wheeled fuel/oil cart with a smaller cart with space on-board for the smaller barrels and bins, two fire extinguishers and three tool boxes.
Perfect for a refuelling diorama at a busy airbase!

Verlinden Production's products for July

This light tank was used from the Second World War right through till the Vietnam War – the set here comprises a full engine and the process from start to finish is seen on Verlinden’s Facebook page, there is a lot of detail there in this Twin Cadillac Series 44T24; 16 cylinder (8/engine) 4 cycle, 90º vee gasoline engine!

These metal etched jungle pants should pretty up your diorama, they are meant to be painted and bent to whatever shape you need – they would go well with a detailed up “Chaffee” or M113 in a Vietnam Diorama don't you think?

The only departure from the after-war years this month from Verlinden. This superbly detailed panther turret looks like it has had a fair few target shots laid on it, the resin comes with pre rendered damage. Included are some battered road wheels and running gear along with a discarded cargo box all blown up accordingly!

An interior for the Academy kit from this Vietnam era AFV. This is a very detailed kit showing the engine, interior walls and crews’ compartments and controls. Again as Verlinden have shown on their Facebook page this is an incredibly good looking interior once finished in your model.

Everything you need to deck out your M24 is here in this kit – including crew figures - this set includes frontal armour (sandbags), a .50cal machine gun and shells for the main gun as well as ammo crates to be stowed inside the vehicle. There are “personals” in the shape of duffel bags, sleeping kits and other sacks and bags. Not much room left in this vehicle after all this goes in!
All of these new releases are available now on Verlinden’s homepage.
