M10 Tank Destroyer Mid Production (1/35) Item No: 35350
10% off on pre-orders of this excellent new release from Tamiya!
This is a model of the famed M10 Tank Destroyer, a subject also covered in the 1/48 scale Military Miniature series. This largely newly-tooled model (only machine gun and clear parts are taken over from existing models) gives it the glorious detail of the larger 1/35 scale. The astonishing success of German armor tactics in 1940 prompted U.S. forces to adopt a doctrine requiring dedicated new tank destroyers to counter them. After going down a few different design routes at the start of the process, they eventually hit upon the highly successful M10 design with well-sloped (if rather thin, to keep the vehicle light and maneuverable) armor plate, and the highly capable 3-inch (76.2mm) gun. Over 4,900 were produced, and took part in Operation Torch (the invasion of N. Africa), as well as fighting in Italy and the advance upon Germany that would bring the exhausting conflict to a close.
Tamiya Panther Aufs.D (1/35) Item No: 35345
Arriving in July, this all-new 1/35 scale model recreates with stunning detail the Panther Ausf.D, the first production version of the famed German tank, which appeared in the Battle of Kursk. Tamiya designers traveled to Breda in the Netherlands to pore over the final remaining Panther Ausf.D, and the result is this breathtakingly accurate depiction of the tank, complete with recreations of the 7.5cm gun and sloped armor. Comes with a commander torso figure, plus a full-body crewman figure, as well as 3 marking options depicting Battle of Kursk Panthers.

The cockpit interior is realistically depicted, right down to details, such as the pilot's seat cushion.
