CLASH OF THE TITANS

ICM has combined its Pz.Kpfw. VI Ausf.B (35363) and T-34/85 (35367) in a Battle of Berlin combo that’s less than 75% of the combined cost of the separate kits.

QUICK-FIRE ARTILLERY

French artillery seems to attract less attention than other nation’s subjects, so this Mle 1897 from IBG will be popular among military kit aficionados.

MANNED FLAK COMBO

This neat little set from Dragon combines the firm’s 2cm FlaK 38 (6288) with its superb crew figures (6368) to provide arguably the best diorama package currently available for this type of anti-aircraft gun.

SIMPLE STANDARD

The ubiquity of the Sherman tank during World War Two makes it a popular subject with small-scale armour modellers and wargamers alike, and this 1/72 Forces of Valor kit is ideal for both purposes thanks to its easy construction, large locating pins and pre-coloured Olive Drab styrene.
