Historical models depicted in this page are from Italaerei (Italeri).
The crew of a Jagdpanzer Elefant is resupplying the tank with shells and fuel. The
Schwimmwagen amphibious car has one MG 42 machine gun mounted and its position allows to see the
propeller, in folded position.
Amidst the debris, next to a Jagdpanzer Hetzer, an officer gives indications to a liaison rider
mounted in a Zundapp KS750 motorcycle with sidecar.
The model is filled with many interesting details, such as the replacement tracks, the tug cable, the
shovel, the MP-40 machine gun, the helmet, the gas mask container, the remainings of camouflage meshes...
Note the stereoscopic periscope on the top of the structure.
The Panzer 38t light tank, of common use on the German Army in the first stages of the war, was
later reconverted in a long serie of tank destroyers equipped with powerful anti-tank guns.
Some US Marines equipped with rifles and machetes, wait next to an M4 Sherman medium tank
and a Willys Jeep, while a wounded is assisted.
Next to a Sturmgeschutz IV, a commander and an officer are discussing some plans while a soldier,
possibly the chouffeur of the Kubelwagen, waits for orders when the discussion is concluded. Note
the Stg-44 assault rifle leaned on the table, all the stuff laid on the rear of the tank and the panels
that it has installed on the sides to protect the suspension, the tracks and the crew itself.
US Paratroops armed with Thompson sub-machine gun, including radio operator with iroquois-style
hair cut, sheltering within barricades, jerrycans, bidons, sand bags and debris. Note the strips on the
trousers to avoid friction noises and the dagger.
The German Army captured more than 1300 units of the ZIS-3 76,2 mm anti-tank guns; they were
extensively used after slight modifications. At the end of the war, this was the most numerous Soviet
Army field gun, with more than 103,000 pieces produced.
