IBG's new September kits (in the one true scale) soon to be released...

IBG have eight releases due to hit our shelves around the end of September. Many of them familiar, but most with a new twist and ALL in 72nd scale. See what's new in our preview...

IBG Models September News - Coming soon from 

Next batch of IBG Models news will come out in the very last days of September! The first of planned two Polish MiG-29 releases will contain Trumper's plastic set and 3d printed upgrade parts for the inside of the cockpit. This and more in our preview...

Centaur Dozer Tank
From IBG
1/72nd scale
The Centaur Dozer Tank first saw action in February 1945 in Belgium and later with the 87th. Assault Dozer Squadron (formally the 87th Assault Squadron of the 79th. Armoured. Division operating Churchill Petard armed AVRE's) in the capture of Bremen...


Toldi Tank Destroyer
From IBG
1/72nd scale
The Toldi was made in Hungar, based on the Swedish L-60 light tank. Production began in 1938. When the battle against the Soviet Union began, it was not possible to compete with the soviet armour, but a 40mm gun was installed later. It was clear that the light tank could still not compete with the Soviet tanks, and Toldi's weaponry was strengthened. The success of the German Marder self-propelled artillery attracted attention as a way to use Toldi, and a self-propelled artillery equipped with the German-made Pak 40 was prototyped in 1944. Although it was confirmed to be effective, it was not mass-produced due to the lack of room in the Hungarian army. Since the Toldi TD was an open top vehicle, the interior is also reproduced on this kit.


Type 95 Ha-Go - Japanese Light Tank - "Manchu" suspension
From IBG
1/72nd scale
The 95 type is was the main Japanese battle tank,  adopted in 1935, when production started, its high mobility was praised, but later in service it struggled due to weak armour and main gun. However, it was put into every front and struggled on as the main force of the Japanese army. In addition; it was used until the end of the war, such as being sent to the south at the end of the war.


3Ro Italian Truck - Troop Carrier
From IBG
1/72nd scale
Produced by Lancia in Italy. The 3Ro type was powered by a 5-cylinder diesel engine. It was produced from 1939 and was used not only for military use but also for civilian use. It was widely used as a highly reliable heavy-duty truck. It was also supplied (or taken) by the to the German army in 1944. Production continued after the war until 1949.


A10 Mk.I British Cruiser Tank
From IBG
1/72nd scale
In 1934, the British army sought an inexpensive general-purpose tank due to the effects of the global recession. Vickers had been developing a cheaper version of the medium tank Mk.III for some time, and was adopted as the cruiser Mk.I (A9) in 1937. Since the armour thickness of the A9 was 14 mm, the hull was strengthened to 30 mm, and this was adopted as the cruiser MK.II (A10) and mass-produced. Initially, it was equipped with a water-cooled Vickers machine gun, but it was changed to an air-cooled Besa machine gun during production and was called Mk.IIA. In the 1940 battle of France, it engaged with the German army as the expeditionary army, and was used as a main battle tank in North Africa until around 1941.


PZL/IAR P.11F Romanian Fighter on skis
From IBG
1/72nd scale
The PZL/IAR P.11F Romanian Fighter on skis was equipment for the winter snow of  the Eastern Front. The fighter was developed by Polish engineer Zygmunt Puwawski. Pwawski had designed the all-metal gull wing aircraft from the beginning, and the culmination of these was P.11. The Romanian army purchased P.11 first from Poland as P.11b, and then built it under licensed production. Production began at IAR Romania in 1936, but the production machine at that time was equipped with a 610 horsepower 9Krse engine. This Romanian production type is called P.11F and 70 aircraft are produced. The Romanian Air Force liked the P.11 series, and produced the advanced P.24, and later IAR-80, which were based on the structure of the P.11 series.


PZL 23 Karaƛ - PAINT MASKS
From IBG
1/72nd scale

Paint masks for this kit are also produced, not a very big set one would think!


Fw 190D-9 Prototype 
(LIMITED EDITION) 
From IBG
1/72nd scale
Includes additional 3d printed parts
The Focke-Wulf Fw-190 is a German, single-engine, full-metal fighter aircraft with a covered cabin in the low wing design of the Second World War. Some pilots considered the Fw-190 to be a better aircraft than the Messerschmitt Bf-109. A self-supporting low wing with a working Fw-190 coating was commissioned by the Luftfahrtministerium, assembled in the fall of 1937. Kurt Tank submitted two propulsion proposals - the first with a liquid-cooled Daimler-Benz DB 601 engine, and the second with the new BMW 139 radial engine. The latter was chosen, and the work started in the spring of 1938 was headed by Obering R. Blaser. The first prototype of the Fw-190V1 was ready in May 1939, and it was flown in Bremen on June 1, 1939 by Captain Hans Sander. The second prototype, the FW-190V2, armed with two MG131 and two MG17 machine guns - all 7.92 mm calibre, was flown in October 1939. To reduce aerodynamic drag, both were equipped with a tunnel air inlet in the propeller cap, but problems with overheating of the engine resulted in a return to the proven NACA shield design. Before the tests of these prototypes began for good, the decision was already made to replace the BMW 139 engine with a stronger, but longer and heavier BMW 810. It required many changes, strengthening the structure and moving the cabin back, which later became a source of problems with the centre of gravity. The advantage was the removal of problems with exhaust gas permeation and overheating of the cabin interior due to its direct vicinity to the BMW 139 engine. The third and fourth prototypes were abandoned, and the Fw-190V5 with the new engine was completed at the beginning of 1940. Later, it received wings with a wingspan enlarged by one meter (from the original 9.5 m), which made it 10 km / h slower, but it increased the rate of climb and improved maneuverability. It was marked Fw-190V5g, and the variant with the shorter wing was Fw-190V5k. The first seven machines of the Fw-190A-0 information series had a short wing, the rest - a longer one.
