Restock: Easy Eight – M4A3E8(76)W Sherman Tank

2051-promo-710.jpg

“Easy Eight” was the nickname for the final World War II production model of the famous American Sherman Tank. It’s official designation is the M4A3E8(76)W which denotes the following features: Welded steel hull, Ford GAA V8 gasoline engine, horizontal volute spring suspension, 23-inch wide tracks, 76mm main gun in a T-23 turret, and “wet” ammunition stowage. While never designed to battle heavy German armor, this model was far more capable than the original Sherman tanks rolled out just three years earlier. The “Easy Eight” was the only Sherman to remain in American service following World War II and it would see further action on the Korean Peninsula supporting UN forces. The “Easy Eight” was also the basis of the famous Israeli “Super Shermans” which saw action well into the 1970’s. More than 49,000 Sherman Tanks were built during World War II. Many thousands were distributed to the Allies through the Lend-Lease program.

Restock: M4 Sherman

social-media-710e.jpg

Armed with a multi-purpose 75mm gun that could fire both high-explosive and anti-tank rounds, it ruled the battlefield when first introduced.

Restock: M42A1 Duster – Twin 40mm Self-Propelled Anti-Aircraft Gun

1020-Action-Webcard-710.jpg

About the M42 Duster:

The M42 “Duster” was a self-propelled anti-aircraft gun that mated a twin 40mm Bofors anti-aircraft cannon on a modified M41 Walker Bulldog tank hull. Designed during the Korean War, the M42 saw extensive action during the Vietnam War although it was used primarily against ground targets and not in its intended anti-aircraft role. Essentially a giant twin machine gun, the M42 could fire 40mm high explosive shells at a rate of 240 rounds per minute, making this one of the most effect anti-personnel weapons of its day. The M42 was also equipped with one or two M1919 or M60 machine guns for close-up self-defense. It was often used in a convoy protection role and was exceptionally well suited for base parameter defense. The M42 was fielded by American and Allied forces throughout much of the Cold War, but was phased out of service in most countries during the 1970s and 80s.

Restock: SdKfz 251 Ausf D & Pak 40 with Ambush Camouflage

2114-SdKfz251+Pak40-Action-Webcard-710

About the SdKfz 251 ausf D
The SdKfz 251 was Germany’s most versatile and widely used armored halftrack vehicle of World War II, often referred to as the “Hanomag” after the manufacturer’s name. The SdKfz 251 was used as the base model for more than 20 specialized vehicles, and underwent several refinements throughout production history. The Ausf D model was the final late-war version, notable for it’s boxy design that helped simplify the manufacturing process.

About the Pak 40
The Pak 40 was designed shortly before the outbreak of World War II, but the project was shelved due to the success of the German army in the early stages of the war. When more heavily armored tanks were encountered in Russia, Pak 40 production was immediately ordered. The Pak 40 made its battlefield debut during the battle for Kharkov in May 1942. the PaK 40 was bigger and more powerful than its predecessors in every aspect, although it still had a remarkably low silhouette, making it easy to conceal despite of its increased size. The Pak 40 could defeat the armor of all but the heaviest Allied tanks up until the end of the war.

Ambush Camouflage Edition
We have reproduced and updated these two classic Brickmania models in a special tri-tone “Ambush Camouflage” color scheme. This is typical of a late war pattern of both the Eastern and Western fronts from 1944 through the end of the war. this makes for a slightly more expensive model, but the stunning results are worth it.

New Release: F-86F Sabre

1025-Action-Webcard-710.jpg

About the F-86F Sabre:

Following the Second World War, American engineers set to building aircraft using jet engines. Designed to combat the Soviet-built MiG-15, the F-86F Sabre employed the same “swept-back” wing design.  This enabled the crack World War II American fighter pilots to successfully dogfight over the skies of Korea in an area known as “MiG Alley”. The Sabre’s exceptional dogfighting abilities places it as one of the best fighter jets of the twentieth century.

Equipped with a powerful General Electric J47-27 engine, the Sabre had a top speed of 690 mph. The Sabre was also equipped with six 0.5 Colt-Browning machine guns and had several options for hardpoints, such as air-to-air missiles or nuclear warheads.

The model features this legendary aircraft as it looked during the Korean War. Included with the kit is a custom-printed American pilot minifigure, a sliding canopy, and retractable landing gear. Also included are stickers and printed elements to give the Sabre an authentic 1950’s look.
