The URAL-4320 is a development model for the URAL-375D diesel truck. The chassis of the URAL-4320 has a good passing capacity, so it can be used in desert areas or rocky areas where roads are difficult to build. The URAL-4320 is extremely reliable and easy to repair and maintain.

German Ju-87B-2 dive bomber
Model Number: 02421
1:24th scale
The Ju87B series was the first mass-produced model in the JU87 series. A total of six early-production Ju87B-0s were manufactured in the first batch, modified by the Ju87A's fuselage. Flight tests began in the summer of 1937. At least three of them were converted into Type C or Type E used by the Navy.

 Colour choices of the kit
Decals supplied in the box
The first mass-produced model, the Ju87B-1, was equipped with the larger Junkers Jumo211D engine with a maximum power of 1,184 hp, redesigned the fuselage and landing gear. These new designs were tested again in the Spanish battlefield, where their production capacity soared to 60 per month. As a result, before the outbreak of the Second World War, the German Air Force had 336 Ju 87B-1s on hand. The B-1 is equipped with a sounding device called the "Jerico horn", which is essentially a 70 cm diameter propeller-driven sounding device mounted on the leading edge of the wing or the front end of the landing gear strut. It is mainly used to make a harsh sound during the dive-bombing to threaten the opponent to achieve the effect of weakening the morale of the enemy. However, the device was cancelled because it was too cumbersome and the speed of the aircraft was reduced by about 20-25 km/h. Correspondingly, similar whistles were installed on the tails of some bombs, and a screaming sound was also produced after the launch.

US Navy "John F. Kennedy" aircraft carrier CV-67
Model number: 06716
Model ratio: 1:700th scale
The aircraft carrier John F. Kennedy was the fourth ship of the US Navy's Kitty-Hawk class aircraft carriers and the last conventional aircraft carrier of the United States Navy. The aircraft carrier John F. Kennedy originally was going to use nuclear power, but in the end, it was powered by conventional fuels because of insufficient funding at the time of development. It differed from other class aircraft carriers in appearance, that is, the chimney was tilted outward.

Colours of the aircraft carrier

The first mission of John F. Kennedy was to cruise the Mediterranean seven times in a demonstration   of power to the Soviet Union. In November 1975, in the Mediterranean, the John F. Kennedy and the cruiser Bekana collided, causing some damage. On 14 September 1976, while conducting a nighttime underway replenishment 100 miles (160 km) north of Scotland, the destroyer Bordelon lost control and collided with Kennedy, resulting in such severe damage to the destroyer that she was removed from service in 1977. Earlier the same day, one F-14 Tomcat, following a problem with the catapult, fell off of the flight deck of John F. Kennedy, with AIM-54 Phoenix missiles in international waters, off the coast Scotland. Both crewmembers ejected and landed on the deck, injured but alive. A naval race (surface and submarine) followed between the Soviet Navy and US Navy to get back not only the plane (because of its weapon system) but also its missiles.

Decal sheets supplied for the aircraft and the carrier
In the Gulf War of 1991, the John F. Kennedy entered the Red Sea and sent aircraft to attack Iraq. After the Gulf War, John F. Kennedy entered the Persian Gulf and sent its fighters to police the no-fly zone in southern Iraq. In October 2017, it was announced that Kitty Hawk would be disposed of by scrapping, leaving John F. Kennedy the last available carrier capable of conversion to a museum.
