1/144 US M6A2E1 - CGD

1/144 US M6A2E1 - CGD

M6A2E1 - M6 was a heavy tank developed by the US during WWII after seeing the success of tank deployment by the Germans. Although the M6 was developed with heavy armour and slightly powerful gun, the US Armored Corps prefered the Sherman instead for its reliability, cheaper in cost and ease to transport. The M6 suffered from a high silhouette, awkward internal layout and reliability problems.

Only 4 units were produced and they never left the US. One prototype was used to produce a 77 ton tank with thicker glacis armour and fitted with a turret designed for the T29 heavy tank, armed with a 105mm gun. It was designated M6A2E1.

1/144 Spitfire Mk.IXc - Eduard

1/144 Spitfire Mk.IXc  - Eduard

For the March (2013)  plans I have kept the small Spitfire Mk.IXc in the SUPER44 line for last.

It is similar to the Mk.IXe from October, but with some differences. It has a different fuselage,
wing, exhausts, wheels. 

In short, it is specifically a ‘C’.

1-144 Bernard 260 - Omega Models

1-144 Bernard 260 - Omega Models
An unusual aircraft that may be more familiar to fans of French Aviation? While not without merit and some progressive features, it lost out to the Dewoitine D.500 to become the main French front-line fighter of its day.

This kit is appearing on a number of websites, but does not currently appear to be in stock. Furthermore, I note that this seems to be No.2 of their 144 range, although the first is not in evidence anywhere...
