Scale Models
24346 1/24 Ford GT

Honed to Perfection
Ford’s GT40 was a motorsports legend which dominated the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans race with four back-to-back victories between 1966 and 1969. Nearly 50 years on, and 2015 welcomed a newcomer with the legendary GT name, a revolutionary design upon which Ford have unleashed their passion for innovation: the Ford GT. It is based around a carbon fiber monocoque and endowed with a 647hp 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine plus a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, not to mention an aerodynamically-honed carbon fiber body: the result is a top speed of a cool 347km/h. A competition model took a magnificent class victory in the 2016 running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

35039 1/35 US M3 Tank Lee

【 Filling the breach 】 The M3 Lee medium tank was the main U.S. counter to the formidable tank forces available to the German army in the early stages of WWII. Before the M3 Lee was developed, the U.S. forces only had light tanks at their disposal as the 37mm gun M2 was already practically obsolete by the time it was ready for mass production. Given time constrictions, the solution chosen was to attach a 75mm gun to the M2's hull and attach the 37mm gun to a swiveling turret; 7.62mm machine guns were added to a further turret to give the new tank a distinctive 3-level form. It was named the M3. Despite problems such as limited rotation of the 75mm gun and the height of the tank making it rather easy to spot, its powerful weaponry and strong armor made it a highly useful stop gap for the Allied forces. It was also used by the British, who gave it the naming 'Lee' (or 'Grant' for versions with a different turret pattern). With the advent of the M4 Sherman, the M3 Lee saw more action in the Pacific Theater, tussling with Japanese forces until the end of the war.


【 Model Specifications 】 ★1/35 scale plastic model assembly kit of the U.S. medium tank M3 Lee. ★Main gun, 37mm gun and 7.62mm machine guns are all moveable. ★Hatches can be attached in open or closed position according to user preference. ★Features faithful reproduction of armor including panel rivets. ★Complex suspension system is accurately depicted. ★Includes 2 marking options and 1 figure.

35041 1/35 British Army Medium Tank M3 Grant Mk I

Military Miniature Series No.41

In the Nick of Time
1942: Struggling to contain the dashing Africa-Corps led by the inimitable Rommel, British troops in North Africa were feeling the loss of the most part of their armor in the hurried evacuation from Dunkirk. A much-needed boost was provided by the appearance of the M3 Grant medium tank, a British-modified variant of the U.S. M3 Lee. While the 75mm main gun remained unaltered, a larger turret was installed for the 37mm gun, and the 7.62mm machine gun removed from its top. The M3 Grant suffered from notable problems such as limited traverse of the 75mm gun, and a conspicuously tall silhouette, but to the relief of the beleaguered British troops, its firepower proved sufficient to take on opposing Panzer IIIs and IVs, leading to the start of a British fightback in North Africa.
