The Dallas-built version of the P-51D, designated the P-51K, was equipped with an Aeroproducts propeller in place of the Hamilton Standard prop, as well as a larger differently configured canopy and other minor differences.
Historically, the Gloster Meteor was Britain’s first jet fighter and the only Allied jet aircraft to see service during the Second World War. The F.8 variant of the Meteor was perhaps the definitive incarnation of this famous aircraft and was the main RAF fighter throughout the 1950’s
Arguably the ultimate version of the Spitfire, the unarmed Rolls-Royce Griffon powered PR.XIX reconnaissance aircraft relied on speed and stealth to survive in the combat area. This version of the Spitfire still holds the world altitude record for a single piston engined aircraft, set at 51,500 ft. in February 1952 by Flight Lieutenant Ted Powles.
This set includes an undecorated diorama base to use with model kits of a Sherman Tank, Tiger Tank, and Forward Command Post. To complete the model are British Paratroops and German Infantry figures. Be as creative as you wish to put all these models together to build a battle scene typical of WWII

The first Skyline GT-R, known by the internal Nissan designation PGC10, was released on 4 February 1969, and was exclusive to Japanese Nissan dealership network called Nissan Prince Store when the Prince company was integrated into Nissan operations in 1966. It was available originally as a four-door sedan after a public debut at the October 1968 Tokyo Motor Show. It was advertised alongside the Nissan R380 racecar to showcase the Skyline’s racing heraldry.

Despite having taken the 1983 500cc Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix Riders' Championship (their first since 1967) on the 2-stroke V3 engine NS500, Honda were not satisfied with their motor and felt that more power would be required. Thus, the Japanese motorcycle giant came up with a single-crankshaft V4 design engine which was used in their 1984 entry. It featured a unique aluminum frame to house the engine and a radical layout in which the expansion chambers and the fuel tank were positioned above and below the engine respectively. The bike would go on to compete in road races over the next 19 years, and now appears as a 1/12 scale model in the Tamiya line-up.

#14131 Kawasaki Ninja H2R - Tamiya 1/12
This 1/12 scale assembly model kit recreates Kawasaki's hyper-powerful Ninja H2R bike, a track-only monster that the famed Japanese manufacturer announced in 2015. The Ninja H2R was developed with input from many of the companies in the larger Kawasaki Heavy Industry group, and its name is a composite of two legendary Kawasaki bikes: the famed Ninja and the H2R. The Ninja H2R not only looks the part with a combination of bare carbon fiber and exquisite mirrored finish black chrome parts, it also has mind-blowing specs. It generates a hair-raising 300hp-plus from its supercharged 998cc inline-4, which it translates into other-worldly acceleration. It is also chock-full of up-to-date electronics for the track: traction control, engine brake control and more.

#14004 Yamaha RZ350 Motorcycle No.004 - Tamiya 1/12 The full size RZ350 was released in February 1981 in the Japanese market. The engine was attached to the frame by two orthogonal mounts, which resulted in a lighter frame design with a dry weight of just 143kg. Due to its high performance, which allowed it to take on larger 750cc displacement bikes, the bike was given the Japanese nickname "750-killer." The Tamiya 1/12 model faithfully replicates the full size bike in every detail.

A water-cooled 4 cylinder petrol engine producing 25hp powered the bus through a 3-speed and reverse gearbox with a shaft to the rear wheels. The chassis was made of ash faced with steel and the cast steel wheels had solid rubber tyres. Civilian versions were fitted with fenders on each side between the wheels to prevent people from falling under the rear wheels.
Perhaps not the most famous RAF aircraft of WWII, the Whitley was one of three British medium bombers in service at the outbreak of the Second World War and although it was withdrawn from front line bombing duties following the introduction of heavier, four-engined bombers, it was to see service right through to the end of the war.
While the Lancaster saw the vast majority of its service as a high altitude night bomber attacking strategic targets deep within Germany, notably its involvement in the battles of the Ruhr, Hamburg and Berlin, it was a daring low-level raid that gave the Lancaster arguably its finest hour.
The Bedford MW series was the smallest of the wartime Bedford trucks and many thousands were produced throughout the Second World War. Early models earned the nickname the ‘Pneumonia Wagon’ due to their small windscreens and open cabs.
Ordered straight from the drawing board in 1935 the Bristol Type 142, later called the Blenheim was, for its time, a very advanced aircraft but by the outbreak of the Second World War it had been overtaken by fighter development.
The Willys Jeep, officially designated Truck, 1/2 ton, 4x4, is the best known of all the American vehicles of the Second World War. Originally intended to be a command and reconnaissance car, it became the most versatile of all vehicles. Able to be armed with machine guns and to tow small artillery pieces, the Jeep was essential to the Allied war effort.
The Crusader Tank was one of the primary weapons of the British Army during its early engagements with the Germans during the Second World War. While early variants fought in the campaigns in France and then Greece, the Mk.III Crusader proved itself to be invaluable during the desert in North Africa where, in the vast expanses of the desert speed was a vital factor in tank engagements.
During the early stages of WWII, the American built Curtiss P-40B proved to be one of the most important fighter aircraft available to Allied Air Forces. Flying with the RAF in North Africa and the American Volunteer Group in China, the Allison V-1710-33 powered P-40B was to became one of the most distinctive fighters of the entire war, wearing their fearsome shark-mouth artwork.
The second World War had seriously affected Great Britain’s abilities to proceed with airliner development, and it was realised that the USA would have virtual domination in this field unless steps were taken to catch up. The Brabazon Committee was formed in 1943 to look into Britain’s post war aviation prospects, and a series of recommendations was issued in 1944; one of these was to produce an advanced turbojet powered airliner for BOAC.
