9506 1/35 Russian Kazakhstan Army BMPT Armored Fighting Vehicle

Kit consists of over 1,100 parts, including photo-etched parts, copper cable, and individual track links.
The really big item coming from Trumpeter isn't a tank though- it's a 1:48 scale U-Boat!
6801 1/48 German DKM Type VIIC U-552 U-Boat
NEW TOOL! The German Type VII submarines were the most common U-boat Germany used throughout WWII. Modelled after their earlier WWI designs, the German Type VIIC boats were created in 1933 as a new method of attacking enemy ships. They became the go-to weapon for the German U-boat force, with 568 commissioned in the last five years of WWII. It differed from the model before it with the addition of active sonar and some mechanical improvements that made it longer and heavier than its predecessors. At 220-feet long and with a submerged speed of 8.7 miles per hour, the VIIC U-boat was one of the most devastating weapons in the German arsenal during WWII. The first U-boat of this size ever created in plastic model form. Kit consists of over 1,100 parts, including a one-piece hull and photo-etched parts. The completed kit is over 55 inches long and features a clear starboard side hull for viewing the interior detail.
