PSC T-55 box

Plastic Soldier Company 1:72 T-55

The box includes parts to make three tanks, each of which can be built as an original T-55, T-55A, or T-55AM. Since there are enough parts to make all three in any version, there will always be spare parts left over for the bits box.

The kits are quick and easy to build. The tracks, for instance, are a single casting on each side, with wheels and track all in one piece.

They lack some details. The coaxial machine gun and sight are missing from the turret, for instance. Still the finished model is unmistakably a T-55. They are sturdy, so should handle being played with on a regular basis.

Given the number of armies that the T-55 have seen service with, this is a very useful kit for any post-war 20mm gamer. I believe S&S Models have plans for conversions, which will make these kits even more useful.

Early War Miniatures Gveh1 Kubelwagon

In this pack you get a ready built resin Kubel, with white metal wind-screen, tilt and two crew figures.

The Kubel is smashing, though there were a few holes which had to be filled, the white metal tilt shows nice “cloth” detail, there was a little flash. The two crewmen – driver in side cap and passenger in helmet with MP40 as tidy enough and fit well into the vehicles cramped interior.

1/72nd scale Humber Utility Car

First saw this on their Facebook page, but may have bought it via their Ebay store – waylander.2012

You get a very neat 2-piece resin casting – the vehicle basically cut in two. Obviously this makes for a very quick build as all you need to do is match up the two halves, check the fit (mine needed some light sanding) and glue. There were some holes in the resin and a little flash to be cleaned away (wheel arches and among the stowage in the rear), nothing too drastic and when done the finished piece looked excellent.

This vehicle would make a great addition to your desert forces, I think you could also use it in France 1940 also.
