About the X-Craft British Minisub:

The X-Craft was a WWII midget submarine class built for the Royal Navy during 1943-1944. Known individually as X-Craft, the vessels were designed to be towed to their intended area of operations by a full-size ‘mother’ submarine with a passage crew on board.  Once the attack was over, the X-Craft would rendezvous with the towing submarine and then be towed home. Range was limited primarily by the endurance and determination of their crews, but was thought to be up to 14 days in the craft or 1,500 miles.

This specific variant was deployed during September 1943’s Operation Source to neutralize the heavy German warships based in Northern Norway. Six X-craft were used, but only two successfully laid charges; the rest were lost, scuttled or returned to base. This was the only multiple X-craft attack. X-Craft made additional attacks on German targets in Norway and helped survey the beaches for the Allied landings at Normandy.  The remains of two XT-class craft are present on the beach at Aberlady Bay in East Lothian, Scotland. One X24 is available to view at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum, Gosport in the United Kingdom.

New Release: V-1 Flying Bomb

XXX-Action-Webcard-710

About the V-1 Flying Bomb:

The V-1 Flying Bomb was an early cruise missile and the first to use a pulsejet for power. It was developed at Peenemünde Army Research Center by the German Luftwaffe during WWII. Due to its limited range, the thousands of V-1 missiles launched into England were fired from launch facilities along the French and Dutch coasts. At its peak, more than one hundred V-1s a day were fired at Southeast England. A total of 9,521 were fired, decreasing in number until the last V-1 site in range of Britain was overrun by allied forces in October 1944.

As part of Operation Crossbow, the British operated an arrangement of air defenses including anti-aircraft guns and fighter aircraft, to intercept the bombs before they reached their targets. During this time, launch sites and underground V-1 storage depots were targets of strategic bombing.

Restock: Mark V (Heavy Tank)

417-MarkV-Action-Webcard-710

About the Mark V

The Mark V was a British WWI heavy tank, deployed in 1918 and primarily used in action during the closing months of WWI. The initial intention was for the Mark V to be a completely new design of tank, but parts to craft it didn’t become available in time, so it ended up being an upgraded Mark IV. The Mark V had more power from a new Ricardo engine, and only needed one driver thanks to the new Wilson epicyclical steering gear.

The first tanks arrived in France in May 1918. Four hundred were built, 200 each of Males and Females. The “Males” were armed with 6-pounder guns and machine guns, while the “Females” came with machine guns only. The Mark V was first used in the Battle of Hamel, on the 4th of July 1918. It went on to take part in eight major offensives before the end of the War.

Specifications

  • Weight: 29 Tons (Male); 28 Tons (Female)
  • Length: 26 ft 5 in
  • Crew: 8 (Commander, driver, and six gunners)
  • Armor: 16 mm maximum front, 12 mm sides, 8 mm roof/”belly”
  • Main armament: Two 6-pounder (57-mm) cwt QF guns with 207 rounds; four .303 in (7.7-mm) Hotchkiss Mk. 1 machine gun
  • Engine: 19 liter six cylinder in-line Ricardo petrol engine – 150 hp at 1200 rpm
  • Power: 5.2 hp/ton

New Release: Bench Vise – The Workshop Collection

521-Action-Webcard-710

A vise is a mechanical apparatus used to secure an object to allow work to be performed on it. Vises have two parallel jaws, one fixed and the other movable, threaded in and out by a screw and lever. There are multiple variants of vises for different tasks. Woodworking vises are attached to a workbench, typically flush with its work surface. Their jaws are made of wood or metal, (the latter usually faced with wood), called cheeks, to avoid marring the work. The movable jaw may include a retractable dog to hold work against a bench dog.

A workbench is a sturdy table at which manual work is done. They range from simple flat surfaces to very complex designs that may be considered tools in themselves. Workbenches vary in size from tiny jewelers benches to the huge benches used by staircase makers. Almost all workbenches are rectangular in shape, often using the surface, corners and edges as flat/square and dimension standards.

An engineer’s vise, also known as a metalworking vise or machinists vise, is used to clamp metal instead of wood. It is used to hold metal when filing or cutting. It is sometimes made of cast steel or malleable cast iron, but most are made of cast iron. Some vises have a cast iron body but a steel channel bar. An engineer’s vise is bolted onto the top surface of a workbench, with the face of the fixed jaws just forward of its front edge. Additional variants of a vise are machine, vacuum, pipe, clamp-on, or a combination.

This kit has the following features:

  • Practical swiveling action
  • Working clamp for maximum power
  • Bench included
  • 1/35 scale to match other Brickmania models
  • Designed by Yitzy Kasowitz
  • Includes 19 LEGO® elements & BrickArms

All Brickmania model kits are made of new-condition LEGO bricks. This model comes disassembled and includes complete printed building instructions and comes packaged in a sealed box. This is a limited edition kit and production may be discontinued at any time.

Restock: M1 Abrams MBT

829 m1-abrams-action-webcard-710

The M1 Abrams is the current main battle tank (MBT) used by the United States Army, US Marine Corps and several allied nations around the world. It is named after General Creighton Abrams, former Chief of Staff of the US Army (1972-1974), commander of operations in Vietnam War (1968-1972) and decorated regimental commander in Patton’s Third Army during World War II.

The origins of the M1 date back to a joint US / German main battle tank program during the 1970s. While this project was eventually canceled,  the technology developed was used in the German Leopard II and the American M1 Abrams MBTs. The M1 Abrams introduced many innovative features such as an aircraft turbine powerpack, composite “Chobham” armor, and ammunition stowage separated from the crew compartment. When the Abrams’ original 105mm rifled main gun barrel was replaced with the 120mm smooth bore gun developed for the Leopard II, the tank was then re-designated the M1A1. A program to further improve the Abrams was introduced in 1992 and the designation was again changed to M1A2. Improvements included separate thermal sights for the commander and various technological upgrades.

The Abrams was first combat tested in 1991 during Operation Desert Storm, where it outperformed any of the Russian-supplied equipment of the Iraqi Army. Improvements continue to be made to the Abrams  to keep up with technological advances and different battlefield conditions.

M1A2 Abrams Vital Statistics

  • Crew: 4 (driver, gunner, loader & commander)
  • Weight: 68 tons (62 metric tons)
  • Armament: Main Gun: 120mm M256 smoothbore cannon (42 rounds) M2HB .50 caliber heavy machine gun, 2 x M240 7.62mm machine guns
  • Road Speed: 42mph (67 km/h)

Restock: T-34/76

2072-t-34-Action-Webcard-710

Developed in great secrecy, the T-34 was Russia’s answer to the growing military threat of Germany in the 1930s. Incorporating many new and innovative features, such as the Christie suspension system and sloping armor, its success was considered a gamble by the Communist Party bosses. While the Soviet Union already had a heavy tank series in production (KV series), the T-34 program was given the go ahead. Stalin’s rationale was that the designers could always be executed if the project failed. While not in full production when Hitler unleashed Operation Barbarossa against the Soviet Union, the appearance of the T-34 stunned the German High Command. Not only was the T-34 able to withstand almost anything the Germans could throw at it, but its 76mm gun could easily knock out both Panzer IIIs and IVs, then the heaviest tanks in the German arsenal.

Additional information about this Brickmania custom Lego® kit:

The T-34/76 Soviet Medium Tank has the following features:

  • Fully rotating turret with elevating main gun assembly
