Development of what would become the M26 Pershing began in 1942. It was to be a replacement for the M4 Sherman, which was the standard U.S. Army tank at the time, and features such as a lower profile hull and cast turret were incorporated during the development process of the various prototypes. This eventually culminated in the T26E1 prototype armed with the 90mm M3 gun, and from that stemmed the production version which was called the T26E3. The first T26E3s were sent to Europe in January 1944, and as they were deployed to the battlefield, they were re-designated M26. Although over 300 reached the theater before the end of the war, only 20 actually saw combat. In these limited actions, the M26s proved capable of defeating the German Panther and Tiger tanks they were designed to counter. Although the standard M26 Pershing's 90mm M3 gun was powerful, it was not on par with the German King Tiger heavy tank's gun. Thus the T15E1 90mm gun, which was larger in caliber and fired a one-piece shell at a higher muzzle velocity, was developed. This gun was fitted onto a modified T26E1 prototype, and featured cylindrical stabilizers mounted on the turret to cope with the longer length of the gun barrel. This was the first "Super Pershing" and it was sent to Europe as well, where it was involved in just a handful of engagements against German tanks. The second "Super Pershing" was created by modifying a T26E3. This was designated T26E4 and was armed with a T15E2 90mm gun that fired a two-piece ammunition and a redesigned gun mount to eliminate the need for the stabilizers. This pre-production T26E4 "Super Pershing" was not sent to Europe. The modifications that were tested on this pre-production T26E4 were incorporated into the actual production-spec T26E4s, of which 25 were built before production was canceled.

As a larger scale plastic model, the MiG-29 model kit includes a fully detailed cockpit. With one pilots seat sitting tandem behind the other, each position has a full set of gauges, a joystick, and an ejection seat. Since the exteriors of the jet engines are extensively detailed with molded wiring and other components, modelers have the option of making them removable. Modelers can assemble them, but leaving them unglued in the engine compartments will allow admirers of the model plane kit to remove and take a closer look at the thoughtful detail Revell put into the MiG-29 UB/GT

In the early stages of WWII, the German military often used the Sd.Kfz.231 series vehicles for reconnaissance missions. One of these heavy armored cars was the Sk.Kfz.232, which was equipped with a long distance wireless radio with a large antenna protruding from the top of the upper hull. In the turret was a 2cm gun and a MG34 machine gun. The 8- wheeled, Sk.Kfz.232 had an on-road top speed of 90km/h, front and rear driving positions, and a superb 8 wheel drive system. The Sd.Kfz.232 performed extremely well and proved its worth in a number of roles on many fronts from Europe to North Africa to Russia. Various kinds of equipment like early type jerry cans and tools are included adding further realism. Comes in a newly designed package with desert themed artwork. Enhancing the impression of the North African front is a German officer figure wearing a tropical uniform. A soldier figure for the turret is also included. Photo-etched parts such as light protecting net s and an aluminum barrel for the 2cm gun are included. Comes with decals for the North African front (2), Balkans front (1), and Kursk front (1). Displaying this armored car with other 1/35 scale models such as Item 35286 German Armored Car Sd.Kfz.222 would be an interesting diorama.
It takes a special type of soldier to turn back the tide of a victorious and numerically superior enemy. The Africa Corps faced down heat, starvation, dehydration and a well-prepared enemy to reach for victory against all odds. German soldiers arrived in Libya in 1941 to bolster crippled Italian defenses. They reversed the gains of the British, forcing them back into Egypt. However, the German disadvantage in numbers and supply could simply not be overcome. They were defeated twice at El Alamein and forced to withdraw. Kit features 50 unpainted figures in different poses with molded on weapons and equipment.
