Revell 1:72 Plastic Model Kit 05119 Skipjack Class Submarine Plastic Model Kit. This model kit made by Revell requires assembly and is 1:72 scale (approx. 106cm / 41.7in long).

The USS Skipjack (SSN-585) was the first US Navy nuclear attack submarine with ahydro-dynamically optimized tear-drop shape. The hull was a single pressure hullwith circular cross-section made of high strength HY-80 steel. A visual feature was that the forward diving planes were fin-mounted for the first time. The six torpedo tubes in the bow could fire a total of 24 torpedoes. The newly developedS5W nuclear reactor enabled her to remain submerged for a long period and her range was only limited by food stores. The shipyard test run confirmed sensational performance with a top speed of over 30 knots when dived. When the USS Skipjack was transferred to the fleet on 15th April 1959, the US Navy received its first true submersible that could operate submerged for months at atime to secure the safety of fast-moving fleet units. Until their decommissioning the six vessels of the Skipjack Class formed the senior unit of the US submarine fleet. The USS Skipjack was the last submarine of that class tobe retired on 19th April 1990.

HMS Bounty

Billing Boats 1:50 Model Ship Kit B492C

#BillingBoats #Ship #MiniModelMilitary

Billing Boats 1:50 Model Ship Kit B492C HMS Bounty Model Ship Kit. It is made by Billing Boats and is 1:50 scale (approx. 78cm / 30.7in long).

Among all those recorded through naval history, that of the Bounty is certainly the most notable example of rebellion which involved the entire crew of a warship on the high seas. The Bounty set sail at Spithead, England and was bound for Tahiti in the South Sea Islands to load samples of the bread fruit tree on which the English authorities placed high hopes. They in fact intended to transplant it to the West Indies to feed the workers of those colonies, mostly Negro slaves, at a cheap price. The commander of the ship and of the expedition was William Bligh. Aboard besides the 46 men of crew was also a botanist. In April 1789 the ship had already completed the first part of her mission and with her precious cargo she was sailing before the wind when suddenly, off the friendly islands, the crew mutinied. They were instigated and led by Fletcher Christian, the executive officer, who dissented from the Captain. Bligh was set adrift in an open boat 30 miles from Tofua with 17 loyal members of the crew.

This kit includes laser cut wooden hull and wooden strips, fittings set, rudder, rigging thread, plan and manual.

Dragon 1:72 Churchill Mk III Diecast Model Tank DR60419 This Churchill Mk III (Dieppe 1942) Diecast Model Tank features working gun, tracks, turret. It is made by Dragon and is 1:72 scale (approx. 13cm / 5.1in long).

http://www.minimodelshop.co.uk/diecast-model-military/churchill-mk-iii-1942-diecast-model-tank-dragon-dr60419&src=gplus

The Churchill infantry tank is a most distinctive design with its extremely long chassis and wraparound tracks. Named after the British minister of defence of the time, the Churchill tank was very well armored. It was produced in a series of versions that offered thicker armor and more powerful armament as the war progressed. The Mk.III, weighing in at 39,626kg, arrived on the scene in March 1942. It featured a 6-pounder gun in the all-welded turret, and the hull-mounted howitzer fitted in previous variants was deleted. Its baptism of fire was in the Second Battle of El Alamein in October 1942, plus the Mk.III was also famously involved in the failed landing at Dieppe in northern France.

Airfix 1:72 Plastic Model Kit 05281 RAF Rescue Launch Plastic Model Kit. It is made by Airfix and is 1:72 scale (approx. 27cm / 10.6in long).

http://www.minimodelshop.co.uk/diecast-model-military/raf-rescue-launch-plastic-model-kit-airfix-05281&src=gplus

Initially this craft was based around the south-eastern coast of Britain, known as 'Hellfire Corner'. The RAF Air Sea Rescue motto was 'The Sea Shall Not Have Them'. The Type 2 was seen as the ultimate machine at the time and many aircrews owed their lives to the ability of the launch and its crews to be able to detect and rescue them with speed and efficiency.

Vanguards 1:43 Land Rover Series I Diecast Model Car VA11113

Vanguards 1:43 Land Rover Series I Diecast Model Car VA11113 This Land Rover Series I (1st Battalion. The Gloucestershire Regiment Korea 1951) Diecast Model Car is Green and features working wheels. It is made by Vanguards and is 1:43 scale (approx. 9cm / 3.5in long).

http://www.minimodelshop.co.uk/diecast-model-car/land-rover-series-i-1951-diecast-model-car-vanguards-va11113&src=gplus

Together with seven other British combat units and a Belgian Battalion, the 1st Battalion Gloucestershire Regiment formed 29 Independent Infantry Brigade Group fighting in the Korean War from December 1950 under the command of the United Nations; Land Rovers were used in support roles. By April 1951, 29 Brigade, including the Glosters, were deployed north of Seoul along the undulating southern bank of the Imjin River; historically, the key to capturing the capital city.

Shortly before midnight on 22nd April the Chinese army attacked and, although the territory was ideally suited to defence, the UN troops were thinly spread and outnumbered by more than five to one. The ensuing fierce battle lasted three days during which the Glosters, completely surrounded, heroically held their position on Hill 235 ('Gloster Hill') against overwhelming odds. The remainder of 29 Brigade retreated but the Glosters fought on, eventually attempting a withdrawal on the morning of April 25th, by which time they had slowed up and weakened the advancing Chinese 63rd Army sufficiently for UN troops to reposition and successfully defend Seoul.

The Gloster's commander, Lieutenant-Colonel J.P. 'Fred' Carne, was awarded the Victoria Cross, Distinguished Service Order and the US Army's Distinguished Service Cross. Lieutenant Philip Curtis was also awarded the Victoria Cross for what was called "a selfless act of heroism" in which, sadly, he lost his life. Of the 1,091 British soldiers killed, wounded or missing, 620 were Glosters. Of those, 520 were taken prisoner, 34 of who died in captivity and 59 were killed in action.

Chinese casualties over the entire battle were approximately 10,000 soldiers. On 8th May 1951, by order of US President Harry S. Truman, the 1st Battalion Gloucestershire Regiment were presented with the United States' Distinguished Unit Citation for outstanding performance of duty and extraordinary heroism. Never was an honour more richly deserved.
