About the famous Tiger 131® WWII Heavy Tank:
Captured by the British Army in Tunisia, North Africa in 1943, Tiger 131® is the world’s only remaining functioning Tiger tank and is on display at The Tank Museum in Bovington, UK. This Brickmania® kit is an officially licensed replication of Tiger 131® and a portion of the model’s proceeds will directly benefit The Tank Museum.
Check out our Tiger Crew Pack! This crew pack from Brickmania® includes five 360-degree UV printed custom minifigures with new 3D-printed side caps and field caps, and uniforms and equipment variations based off the Tiger and Panzer tank crews utilized by the German military during World War II.

About the M18 Hellcat Tank Destroyer:
Its 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.
Our awesome team members at the GHQ Store in Minneapolis have put together some fun monthly activities for you to enjoy! The first event is The Brickmaniac’s Club on Sunday November 10th! Keep reading for details on the GHQ Store’s entire lineup of fun-filled activities!
