What this offers for the modeler, however, is a wide range of interesting equipment never seen before. The Kurganets-25 IFV is a good example of this. Heralding back to the BMP-2 and -3 of the previous generation, this new machine seems to be the epitome of both defensive and offensive capabilities, literally festooned with sensors and targeting electronics. The spaced armor enhances survivability on the battlefield, while its armament makes it a worthy opponent for most challenges it might encounter.</p><p><a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/kurganets-25-ifv-object-695" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Military Vehicles Kits Mon, 11 Dec 2017 16:02:57 +0000 Doug Cole 7385 at https://web.ipmsusa3.org Metal Landing Gear for Academy 1/72 F-15E https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/metal-landing-gear-academy-172-f-15e <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-region-pr-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/metal-landing-gear-academy-172-f-15e" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square imagecache-linked imagecache-review_cover_square_linked"><img src="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/review_cover_square/reviews/sac-metal-gear-academy-172-f-15e/sac_1_72_f_15e_metal_gear_for_academy_package.png" alt="Product Image" title="Packaging" width="150" height="150" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square"/></a> </div> </div> </div> <p>We at IPMS continue to thank Ross and his Team at SAC for supporting the IPMS USA reviewer corps with what has turned into a monthly release schedule with extremely useful and well-thought out landing gear additions for the modeling crowd out here in the modeling world. What started out as an "I don't know if they will sell" idea a few years ago has flourished into a busy worldwide trade for modelers seeking just a bit more out of their model accessories...</p> <p>This review is for the SAC landing gear released for the relatively new 1/72 F-15E from Academy. This kit is a jewel; there are two areas needing true replacements for a contest level model, that being the "featherless" open afterburner nozzles, which are supplied simplified, and the rather thick one-piece canopy over the extremely well-detailed cockpit. Those issues are for others to address... SAC provided us three metal parts to replace the kit-supplied plastic gear.</p><p><a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/metal-landing-gear-academy-172-f-15e" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Aircraft Details Mon, 11 Dec 2017 15:43:36 +0000 Doug Cole 7384 at https://web.ipmsusa3.org U.S. M113A1 ACAV https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/us-m113a1-acav <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-region-pr-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/us-m113a1-acav" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square imagecache-linked imagecache-review_cover_square_linked"><img src="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/review_cover_square/reviews/us-m113a1-acav/m113_box_art.jpg" alt="Product Image" title="Box art" width="150" height="150" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square"/></a> </div> </div> </div> <h3>Background</h3> <p>As a young man in the late 1960's living in Canada, each weekday night I used to watch "The CBS Evening News" with Walter Cronkite. This was my window on the world, so to speak. And it seemed that almost every night the first thing that I saw through this window involved "the war in Vietnam". Mr. Cronkite would tell me how many US troops had been killed or wounded, and then I would see a video clip from a correspondent in Saigon, or in some rice paddy somewhere in the countryside. Vietnam, I thought, was a place I didn't EVER want to visit. Often in the background of the television videos, there were TWO objects regularly seemed to appear at some point during the newscast. One was a helicopter, often many, and the other was an M113 APC. These apparently, were the chariots that the Americans rode into battle, be it on the ground, or in the air.</p><p><a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/us-m113a1-acav" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Military Vehicles Kits Mon, 11 Dec 2017 05:12:45 +0000 William O'Malley 7383 at https://web.ipmsusa3.org USAF B-47 "306th BW(M)" https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/usaf-b-47-306th-bwm <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-region-pr-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/usaf-b-47-306th-bwm" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square imagecache-linked imagecache-review_cover_square_linked"><img src="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/review_cover_square/reviews/usaf-b-47-306th-bwm/1_b-47_boxart.jpg" alt="Product Image" title="Box art" width="150" height="150" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square"/></a> </div> </div> </div> <h3>History</h3> <p>The B-47 was the first swept-wing jet bomber in the US Air Force's inventory, serving the USAF from 1951 to 1969. The US Navy flew some EB-47Es until 1977. Development began in 1943, and the design changed several times until Boeing came up with a 6-jet aircraft with the engines in pods under the wings. Because of the size of the engine pods, the main landing gear was set up as a "bicycle", with 2 main gear under the fuselage, and smaller outriggers under the engine pods. With this setup, the B-47 could not rotate the nose on takeoff. The main gear was set so the aircraft sat at optimum takeoff angle at all times. The B-47 was subsonic, but extremely fast for a 1950s, setting a number of time and distance records, with speeds around 600 miles per hour.</p> <p>Another personal note: When I was about 10 years old, my Uncle Leroy took me and my father to Lincoln AFB in Lincoln Nebraska. This was also part of the civilian airport, and we got to watch a B-47 do touch and goes from the top of the terminal building. I was impressed.</p><p><a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/usaf-b-47-306th-bwm" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Aircraft Kits Mon, 11 Dec 2017 03:38:52 +0000 William O'Malley 7382 at https://web.ipmsusa3.org Sturmgeschutz https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/sturmgeschutz <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-region-pr-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/sturmgeschutz" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square imagecache-linked imagecache-review_cover_square_linked"><img src="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/review_cover_square/reviews/sturmgeschutz/osprey_stug_book_cover.jpg" alt="Product Image" title="Book cover" width="150" height="150" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square"/></a> </div> </div> </div> <p>Initially deployed with German forces in 1940, Sturmgeschutz (Stug) assault guns were purpose-built fully tracked armored fighting vehicles designed to support the infantry during the initial assault on enemy positions, especially useful for knocking out strong points such as bunkers. When the Germans invaded Russia in 1941 in Operation Barbarossa, they got a nasty surprise with the appearance on the battle field of heavily armed and armored Soviet tanks such as the T-34/76 and KV-1. The Stug assault guns were discovered to be excellent tank destroyers. They were quicker and cheaper to produce than tanks, making them a good "bargain" on the battlefield. As the war progressed, the Stug was up-gunned to deal with ever more lethal Soviet tanks, and spread across the battle fields as German industry struggled to keep up with tank losses.</p> <p>For anyone interested in modeling World War 2 German armored vehicles, the name Thomas Anderson should be well known. He has spent years researching these vehicles and is himself a modeler, having published numerous articles in various modeling publications, as well as authoring a number of German AFV books.</p><p><a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/sturmgeschutz" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Military Vehicles Publications Mon, 11 Dec 2017 02:43:38 +0000 William O'Malley 7381 at https://web.ipmsusa3.org Legends of Warfare Aviation: Grumman F4F Wildcat https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/legends-warfare-aviation-grumman-f4f-wildcat <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-region-pr-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/legends-warfare-aviation-grumman-f4f-wildcat" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square imagecache-linked imagecache-review_cover_square_linked"><img src="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/review_cover_square/reviews/legends-warfare-aviation-grumman-f4f-wildcat/front_cover.jpg" alt="Product Image" title="Cover" width="150" height="150" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square"/></a> </div> </div> </div> <p>This is a new series for me at least. This is a nice hardback book that covers the Grumman F4F Wildcat and the FM series of Wildcats built by Eastern Aircraft Division of General Motors during WWII. The Wildcat continued in production and to fight throughout the war even as newer and better aircraft became available.</p> <p>The book has 12 chapters each covering the different variants. The layout is the first chapter on the XF4F-2, followed by chapters each on the following: XF4f-3 and F4F-3, the F4F-3 in detail, XF4F-5, XF4F-6/F4F-3A, F4F-3S, XF4F-4, F4F-4, F4F-7, XF4F-8, FM-1, FM-2 and Wildcat in combat.</p> <p>The book uses many wartime photos mixed in with color photos of museum and restored warbirds to tell the story. The book has wonderful detail shots of each variant, quite a few I have not seen before. The number and breadth of photographs alone make this a worth addition to any modeler or aviation buff's library! The writing is informative and like Joe Friday of Dragnet fame is full of "Just the facts"! The Wildcat fought from beginning to end in WWII and was the mount of several aces, this book is a worthy teller of the airplane's story.

In this new offering from Osprey Publishing, author Alister McCluskey writes about the late war offensive on what the Allies referred to as "the Hindenburg Line" on the Western Front. The story along with photos (both historical and of the landscape today), artwork, and maps helps to tell the story of the battles that raged from late September into early October 1918.</p> <p>This offering by Osprey is written in eight chapters, which are titled "The Strategic Situation", "Chronology", "Opposing Commanders", "Opposing Forces", "Opposing Plans", "The Campaign", "Aftermath", and "The Battlefield Today". There is also a "Further Reading" list of books and an "Index". There are 59 black and white photographs contained within this publication as well as nine color maps and three paintings, each covering two pages, all of which are followed by a smaller black and white image of the painting and a description of the action taking place. </p><p><a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/hindenburg-line-1918-haig-s-forgotten-triumph" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Miscellaneous Publications Thu, 07 Dec 2017 23:30:56 +0000 Jim Pearsall 7378 at https://web.ipmsusa3.org M60 Main Battle Tank in Action https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/m60-main-battle-tank-action <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-region-pr-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/m60-main-battle-tank-action" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square imagecache-linked imagecache-review_cover_square_linked"><img src="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/review_cover_square/reviews/m60-main-battle-tank-action/squadron_12060_m60_mbt_in_action_cover_front.jpg" alt="Product Image" title="Front Cover" width="150" height="150" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square"/></a> </div> </div> </div> <p>David Doyle's latest book continues to expand on Squadron Signal's long standing In Action series that initiated back in 1971.

Kawanishi engineers had proposed in 1941 that the N1K could be a formidable land-based fighter too and a land-based version N1K1-j (J indicated land based fighter modification of the original floatplane version) was produced as a private venture by the company and first flew in December 1942. Due to it being a mid-wing design (because of the floats &amp; large prop) a new design was begun just 4 days after the first test flight. The major defects being addressed were the wing and long landing gear. The wings were moved to a low position, which permitted the use of shorter, conventional undercarriage, the fuselage was lengthened and the tail redesigned. The first flight was on January 1944 and production of the N1K2-J "Shiden-Kai" (Kai standing for Modified) started in April of that year.</p><p><a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/kawanishi-n1k2-j-shindenkai-george-301st-fighter-squadron" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Aircraft Kits Wed, 06 Dec 2017 23:45:50 +0000 Jim Pearsall 7376 at https://web.ipmsusa3.org Photoetch for MiG-29UB Izdelye 9.51 https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/photoetch-mig-29ub-izdelye-951 <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-region-pr-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/photoetch-mig-29ub-izdelye-951" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square imagecache-linked imagecache-review_cover_square_linked"><img src="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/review_cover_square/reviews/eduard-172-pe-mig-29ub-izdelye-951/29pe_package.jpg" alt="Product Image" title="Package" width="150" height="150" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square"/></a> </div> </div> </div> <p>This set is designed to be used on the MiG-29UB kit released by Trumpeter last year. It includes not only the full color set SS593 to upgrade the front and rear cockpits and both ejection seats, but also a second brass fret of external details. The detail on both sets is outstanding and the color set is beautifully printed. Based on the colors used for the cockpit side consoles, it looks like Eduard used a later build MiG-29UB as the side consoles and instrument panels are in a medium grey, not the bright blue-green color seen on many other Russian/Soviet aircraft. Unfortunately, the instructions do not include any painting references for the cockpit or other kit parts, so you must do your own matching. To my eye, the grey looked pretty close to the Testors Dark Ghost Grey (FS 36320) I recently used on a F/A-18E build, so I used this color as the base interior color.</p><p><a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/photoetch-mig-29ub-izdelye-951" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Aircraft Details Wed, 06 Dec 2017 23:03:46 +0000 Jim Pearsall 7375 at https://web.ipmsusa3.org FUG-202 Lichtenstein Aircraft Radar Antennas https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/fug-202-lichtenstein-aircraft-radar-antennas <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-region-pr-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/fug-202-lichtenstein-aircraft-radar-antennas" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square imagecache-linked imagecache-review_cover_square_linked"><img src="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/review_cover_square/reviews/fug-202-lichtenstein-aircraft-radar-antennas/brl48084.jpg" alt="Product Image" title="" width="150" height="150" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square"/></a> </div> </div> </div> <p>According to an on-line dictionary, fug is a warm, stuffy, or smoky atmosphere in a room.

The CBU-97 weighs around 1,000 lbs. and consists of a munition dispenser which contains ten BLU-108 sub-munitions. Each BLU-108 is an independent unit with its own sensors and projectiles which are designed to kill armored or soft skinned vehicles by attacking from above where the armor/skin is thinnest, or non-existent. The CBU-97 can be carried by all of the USAF's current fighters and bombers.</p> <p>Eduard's set consists of twelve resin parts, 6 munition dispensers and 6 tail units. As with Eduard's other CBU sets, the hardest part of the whole build is cutting the parts from the casting blocks. Take your time and keep your cuts as straight as you can.
