The USS Missouri is the most famous American battleship (second only to the USS Arizona). The Missouri was ordered in 1940 and commissioned in 1944.  She fought in the battles for Iwo Jima and Okinawa during World War II.  The USS Missouri is famous for holding the surrender ceremony of the Japanese Government on it’s deck, September 2nd 1945.  After the Korean war the USS Missouri was retired from active service. USS Missouri along with three other Iowa Class Battleships were reactivated and extensively modernized.  The USS Missouri participated in The Gulf War in 1991 providing tomahawk missile and naval gunfire support to Operation Desert storm. This 1/700th scale replica uses 100% authentic LEGO elements and is perfect for display on desks or mantles.  The USS Missouri is in the same scale as Brickmania’s USS North Carolina kit.

New Release Pak 38 5cm Anti-Tank Gun

2083-Pak38-Cover-560

Order Here

The Pak 38 5cm Anti-Tank Gun was developed as a response to shortcomings found in the Pak 36 3.7cm AT Gun used during the Spanish Civil War. It was put into mass production in 1939 for the Wehrmacht and proved to be one of the few anti-tank weapons capable of penetrating the armor of the T-34 tanks. While larger anti-tank guns would be introduced, the Pak 38 continued to be useful for the remainder of the war due to its small size and good ballistic performance.

Premium Black Box Release: P-47 Thunderbolt

2082-p47-cover560

Limited to a production run of 99 kits!

Order Here

The P-47 was the largest single-seat, single-engine fighter used in World War II. It was developed by Republic Aviation and was the first aircraft equipped with the powerful Pratt and Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp radial engine (later used in the Navy’s F6F Hellcat and F4U Corsair fighters). The Thunderbolt featured thick armor protection for the pilot and was heavily armed with eight .50 caliber Browning M2 machine guns and up to 2500 pounds of rockets or bombs. With the addition of external drop tanks, the P-47 was able to provide fighter escort to bomber formations deep into enemy occupied Europe. While the P-47 was a competent air-to-air fighter, it’s massive firepower and speed made it an ideal ground attack aircraft. It’s prowess for hunting tanks made it the scourge of German panzer forces in Europe, forcing them to stay hidden during daylight hours. Ground attack versions of the P-47 were delivered to the European Theater of Operations in time for the D-Day Invasions, for which all Allied aircraft were painted with characteristic black and white “invasion stripes.” More than 15,000 were built during World War II, making it a close rival of the P-51 Mustang for most widely used American fighter aircraft of the war.

New Release: M18 Hellcat US Tank Destroyer

2079-M18-Cover560

Limited Release: Only 100 will be made, we are using the last of our parts.
Order Here

During World War II, the US Army doctrine for tank warfare dictated that the role of tanks on the battlefield would be similar to cavalry of generations before: They would use their speed and firepower to exploit breaches in the enemy lines and cause havoc in rear areas. The task of fighting other tanks was given to special anti-tank units, who would fight oncoming enemy tank attacks with towed anti-tank guns or rush to the endangered sector in special armored vehicles called tank destroyers. Early tank destroyers were no more than open-top M3 half track trucks with WW1 vintage 75mm guns fitted on top in a forward-facing mount. These proved to be extremely unsuited for the task and many were destroyed in early encounters with Axis armor in North Africa. A highly mobile, tracked vehicle, with a powerful gun mounted in a fully traversable turret, was called for.

The auto manufacturer Buick was tasked with creating such a vehicle and it’s result was the legendary M18 Hellcat. It’s official designation was the M18 76mm Gun Motor Carriage and was the US Army’s only purposely designed vehicle whose primary function was killing enemy tanks. Priority was given to mobility and firepower at the expense of armor protection, traits for which the Tank Destroyer units developed special tactics. During the Battle of the Bulge, M18s used their speed to secure key crossroads in advance of enemy units, helping to turn the tide of battle. While the tank destroyer doctrine would be abandoned after World War II, the M18 could still boast of the highest kill-to-loss ratio of any US armored vehicle during the war.

M18 Hellcat Vital Statistics:

  • Weight: 19.5 tons (17.7 metric)
  • Armament: 76mm Gun M1A2, 1x Browning .50 cal M2HB
  • Armor: .2-1 in
  • Speed: 57 mph (92km/h)
  • Range: 105 miles (168 km)
  • Years Produced: 1943-44

The Kübelwagen was a light utility car used by the German armed forces during World War II. Designed by Ferdinand Porsche, it shared many chassis components with the Volkswagen Beetle. The Kübelwagen could carry four fully equipped soldiers on roads and overland thanks to it’s light weight body, reinforced suspension and a self-locking differential. Its air cooled engine was reliable and easier to maintain in the field verses their more complex allied equivalents. More than 50,000 were manufactured during the war for the German armed forces.

The Kübelwagen kit was originally released in 2010 and was the first Brickmania kit to sell more than 1000 copies. For a limited time we’re bringing  back this classic kit in dark gray with the addition of a custom printed minifigure.
