Restock: Renault FT – WWI French Light Tank

Renault FT - WWI French Light Tank

About the Renault FT – WWI French Light Tank:

The first tanks were developed during World War I in response to the bloody stalemate on the Western Front. Although small compared to future tanks, the Renault FT was deployed as a breakthrough and exploitation vehicle, equipped with either a low-velocity 37mm cannon or two machine guns. Its two-man crew consisted of a driver and tank commander, who doubled as the tank’s gunner.

Over 3,000 were built for service on the Western Front. A copy of the Renault was manufactured in the USA under license and was standardized as the M1917. The American version can be easily distinguished by the location of the exhaust pipe to the left side of the hull, where the original French version had the exhaust pipe located on the right. The Renault FT has the distinction of setting the pattern for future tank development: fully tracked vehicle with engine located in the rear and a single fully-rotating turret.

  • Engine: Renault four-cylinder gasoline 35 HP

Restock: Panzer IV Ausf G – German Medium Tank

Panzer IV Ausf G - German Medium Tank

About the Panzer IV Ausf G – German Medium Tank:

In combat, few German tanks saw as much action as the Panzer IV. While the Panther and Tiger often grab the attention of history enthusiasts, the Panzer IV’s development and participation in World War II is unrivaled. The chassis for the Panzer IV served as the base for over a dozen different models outside of its own development, including tank destroyers, command vehicles, self-propelled artillery, and anti-aircraft guns. Developed in 1937 as part of Germany’s rearmament efforts, the Panzer IV participated in the invasion of Poland on September 1, 1939.

The first Panzer IVs were designed as infantry support vehicles. Armed with a short 7.5cm KwK, the tank excelled against infantry and fortifications. It proved extremely effective during blitzkrieg, forcing the French to surrender in summer 1940.

As the short barrel proved ineffective against enemy armor in Russia and North Africa, the Ausf G (sometimes referred to as the F2) variant was the first Panzer IV to be equipped with the longer, high velocity 7.5cm main cannon. This gun allowed the Panzer IV to engage other medium tanks such as the Sherman and T-34. The upgrade helped make the Panzer IV a top contender for the duration of the war until 1945.

Specifications:

  • Crew: 5
  • Armaments: 7.5 cm KwK 40 L/43 gun, MG34 machine gun
  • Engine: Maybach HL 120 TRM V12 gasoline
  • Top Speed: 26 mph (42 km/h)
  • Max Range: 130 mi (210 km)
  • Production: 1,700 (1942–1943)

Features:

  • Fully-articulating Brickmania Track Links™
  • Fully-rotating turret with posable main gun
  • Three opening hatches on the turret
  • Custom-printed Panzer Commander minifigure
  • BrickArms® MG34
  • 1/35th scale to match other Brickmania models

Restock: M4 Sherman – Allied Medium Tank (2018)

M4 Sherman - Allied Medium Tank (2018)

About the M4 Sherman:

Perhaps the best known Allied tank during World War II, the M4 Sherman was designed to replace the M3 Lee. Named for the eccentric Union General William T. Sherman, the Sherman medium tank was mass produced to help offset better-armed German tanks such as the Tiger and Panther. The American war machine produced over 50,000 Sherman tanks between 1941 and 1945.

The Sherman chassis was used for several dozen different variants. Among these variants, several were specialized for mine clearance, rocket battery, or as a self-propelled howitzer. The standard M4 Sherman was equipped with a Continental R975 gasoline-powered engine and could achieve a top speed of 21 miles per hour. Stock Sherman examples were armed with two machine guns and a 75mm cannon, the Sherman could handle all but the heaviest German tanks. Although they struggled against German armor, the Allies found success in overwhelming the slower German tanks by often deploying five or more Sherman tanks against the same target.

The Sherman was also deployed during the Korean War but was eventually replaced by the M46 Patton.

Specifications:

  • Engine: Continental R975 C1 radial petrol
  • Speed: 21 mph (34 km/h)
  • Range 120 mi (193 km)
  • Crew: 5
  • Armament: 75mm main cannon, 2x 7.62mm machine guns

Restock: Battle of the Bulge: Building instructions for World War II Models made from LEGO® Bricks – Paperback

Battle of the Bulge: Building instructions for World War II Models made from LEGO® Bricks

The Battle of the Bulge, sometimes known as “Hitler’s Last Desperate Gamble”, was a massive German offensive beginning in December of 1944. The Allies did not believe such an offensive was possible in the thick forest of the Ardennes region. As a result, the Allies were caught completely off-guard and the German advance created a “bulge” in their lines. German defeat would result from poor logistics and Allied resolve. This defeat in the Ardennes would cripple German ability to wage war and seal the end of the Third Reich in May 1945.
