  • MODELLING FULL AHEAD SPECIAL 1/ LEXINGTON´S FINAL BATTLE

    15,95

    When we decided to launch the Modelling Full Ahead project, we were aware that in an eighty page publication it was possible to condense the information needed to build a specific warship. But as modelling is evolving nowadays with it’s curiosity, techniques, innovation, history, and certainly everything that pushes us to build a scale model, this cannot only be achieved with a monographic series.
    Bearing this in mind and in response to the multitude of suggestions we received, we offer you a parallel to the monographs series. In this special issue we will deal with difficulties that may occur  during the building stages, such as working with photo-etch, advanced painting, scratch-building, diorama composition, etc. With this new guide we will not only help you to build your models but also have the possibility to tell its history.

    Modelling Full Ahead has become bigger. Following the success of the first issue, Knox & Baleares Class we are now proud to present Modelling Full Ahead 2: New Orleans Class. Initially when we laid out Modelling Full Ahead, our goal was to condense the information required to successfully build one class of warship into 80 pages. However, as modelers, we all know that the full scope of our hobby that challenges us includes techniques, new innovative ideas, history and so much more. Be sure not to miss out on these special issues.

    During the Great War, the assault tanks in the German Army merely played an anecdotal role. Due to the restrictions enforced by the Treaty of Versailles, the first training unit for armoured forces wasn’t organised (secretly) until 1933. The existence of the first three Panzerdivisionen of that new German Army was officially revealed in 1935. The armoured troops or Panzertruppen were an independent branch of the Army, with their own command. This allowed concentrating the tanks in divisions so units were capable of significantly strategic deployments. General Heinz Guderian forged both words: Panzerwaffe to refer to the armoured force and
    Panzertruppen to identify the elitist armoured troops which would conquer half of Europe in the following years.
    The evolution of the camouflage schemes painted in tanks and vehicles of German armoured units is analysed in the book along with the organisation of these German units during WWI and WWII and the whole interwar period.

    Durante la Gran Guerra, los tanques de asalto en el ejército alemán simplemente jugaron un papel anecdótico. Debido a las restricciones impuestas por el Tratado de Versalles, la primera unidad de entrenamiento para las fuerzas blindadas no se organizó (lo hizo en secreto) hasta 1933. La existencia de las primeras tres Panzerdivisionen de ese nuevo ejército alemán se reveló oficialmente en 1935. Las tropas blindadas o Panzertruppen eran una rama independiente del ejército, con su propio mando. Esto permitió concentrar los tanques en divisiones para que las unidades fueran capaces de despliegues significativamente estratégicos. El general Heinz Guderian acuñó ambas palabras: Panzerwaffe para referirse a la fuerza blindada y Panzertruppen para identificar las tropas blindadas elitistas que conquistarían la mitad de Europa en
    los años siguientes.
    La evolución de los esquemas de camuflaje pintados en tanques y vehículos de unidades blindadas alemanas se analiza en este libro. Junto con la organización de éstas unidades alemanas durante
    la Primera y la Segunda Guerra Mundial y todo el período de entreguerras.

    In the Six Day War, some 860 enemy tanks were captured by the IDF, including some 280 T-54/5 tanks. Within a few years, 146 of them were introduced into service as Tiran 4/5. This book tells their story, a story of the only army that introduced a great number of enemy tanks into prolonged service. The Tiran tank did not really suit the IDF’s needs. It was in many ways a bastard tank. However, the IDF creatively tried to take advantage of all that it had to offer. It was used like no other tank—as a low-grade “bonus” reserve tank unit for wartime, as a mine-clearing tank, as a unique tool for special operations, and as an artillery cannon designated for destroying SA-3 anti-air missile batteries. After many alterations, the tanks were eventually incorporated in a Tiran 4/5 brigade, as part of a special tactical task force designed to conduct an armored maneuver in the Egyptian flank.Abteilung 502 and Desert Eagle Publishing bring us the second volume of the Captured Vehicles in IDF Service Series. A new series for those who build models, love tanks and like history. The series focuses on the widespread and unique use the IDF made of tanks and armored vehicles captured in Israel’s wars with its Arab neighbors. The series is based on academic research, official IDF documentation, and interviews conducted with soldiers and officers who used these vehicles in real time. An amazing book that will surprise you.

    En la Guerra de los Seis Días, el IDF capturó unos 860 tanques enemigos, incluidos unos 280 tanques T-54/5. En pocos años, 146 de ellos se pusieron en servicio como Tiran 4/5. Este libro cuenta su historia, una historia del único ejército que introdujo una gran cantidad de tanques enemigos en servicio prolongado. El tanque Tiran no se ajustaba realmente a las necesidades del IDF, era en muchos sentidos un tanque bastardo, sin embargo, el IDF intentó aprovechar creativamente todo lo que tenía para ofrecer. Se usó como ningún otro tanque: como una unidad de tanque de reserva para tiempos de guerra, como un tanque de limpieza de minas, como una herramienta única para operaciones especiales y como un cañón de artillería designado para destruir anti baterías de misiles aéreos SA-3. Después de muchas alteraciones, los tanques finalmente se incorporaron en una brigada Tiran 4/5, como parte de una fuerza especial táctica diseñada para llevar a cabo una maniobra blindada en el flanco egipcio. Abteilung 502 y Desert Eagle Publishing nos traen en el segundo volumen los vehículos capturados al servicio del IDF. Una nueva serie para quienes construyen maquetas, les gustan los tanques y les apasiona la historia. La serie se centra en el uso generalizado y único que el IDF hizo de tanques y vehículos blindados capturados en las guerras de Israel con sus vecinos árabes. Basado en investigaciones académicas, documentación oficial del IDF y entrevistas realizadas con soldados y oficiales que utilizaron estos vehículos en tiempo real. Un libro sorprendente que no te defraudará.

    Arrived in the Middle East in 1955. The tank was known as a reliable war machine from the battlefields of World War II, and quickly became a main battle tank in the Egyptian army. In the Sinai Campaign (1956), the Israeli Sherman and AMX-13 tanks met it in battle for the first time, and by the end of the operation, the IDF had managed to capture several of them. These tanks were driven through the streets of Tel Aviv as a symbol of the great victory that had protected the young, small state. Afterward, the IDF tested and studied the tanks it had captured, made sure that its soldiers learned them well, and integrated them into its Armored Corps’ training course. By 1967, Syria and Egypt had bought hundreds of T-34s, and it was considered a threat that the Israeli army would definitely meet in their next war.

This superb new title provides an unparalleled view of air combat in the skies of Britain and France, from dog-fighting between Messerschmitts and Spitfires during the campaign in the West and the Battle of Britain, to fighter bomber missions over southern England, to the Allied invasion of Normandy and the desperate sorties flown by the unit’s Fw 190s against the huge USAAF bomber streams.

    This new volume is devoted to JG 5 ‘Fighters of the Midnight Sun’. Nothing predestined young German fighter pilots to fly and fight among the grandiose landscapes of Norway, Finland or Lapland with their hostile climates. Many of them would find their last resting places in the storm-tossed icy waters of the Arctic Sea or the snow-covered plains of the tundra. Who even now knows that the defeat of the Wehrmacht was precipitated by the failure to conquer Europe’s northern-most small territory?

     

    This latest Luftwaffe Gallery ‘special issue’ tells the story of this fighter Geschwader and its numerous aces on 96 pages, filled with rare and newly translated first person accounts, over 240 photos (many previously unpublished) and 32 specially commissioned artworks that had been created by Janusz Światłoń.

    Authors: Erik Mombeeck, Maciej Góralczyk

    JG 54 was perhaps the most fascinating fighter Geschwader of the Luftwaffe, not least for modellers. This is in large measure due to the variety of non-standard colour schemes worn by the unit’s Bf 109 and Fw 190 fighters as well as the diversity of its emblems and insignia displayed both early and late in the war.

     

    On 96 pages of this latest Luftwaffe Gallery ‘special issue’ we highlight the story of this fighter Geschwader through rare and newly translated first person accounts, 207 photos of which many are published for the first time, and 32 specially commissioned profiles that had been created by Thierry Dekker.

    LUGA JG 77

    Author: Erik Mombeeck

    Several factors characterise the history of JG 77: the diversity of its origins, the fact that the Geschwader fought on all fronts, flying the Messerschmitt Bf 109 throughout (except for a very brief interlude on Macchi 205), the striking number and quality of its insignia and the fact that it had in its ranks a large number of the leading fighter aces.

     

    Through newly translated personal accounts, over 230 photos and 31 colour profiles, we tell the story of this unit on 96 pages of this ‘special issue’ of Luftwaffe Gallery.
