FMS 1400mm B25 Mitchell -Green PNP

  The North American B25 Mitchell was a twin-engine medium bomber that served in every theatre of WW2. The aircraft was safe and forgiving to fly and featured a formidable array of firepower. It was also used to strike the first ever bomber attack on mainland Japan that boosted moral of the American war machine after the devastation caused by the attack at Pearl Harbour.                                                                                                                                                                                                FMS has chosen the B25-D which featured upgraded supercharge radial engines and increased armament and first flew in January 1942. This is a highly detailed and feature rich model which includes: 5 painted pilots, 11 machine guns, high power LED Navigational lights, worm drive retracts with gear door sequence controller.                                                                                                                                                     Taxiing and ground handling is great using the steerable nose wheel and makes for stress free take offs. Once in the air, all control surfaces are very effective and coupled to the light wing loading and excellent power make this a winning package.                                                                                                                                                                           Confidence inspiring flight predictability will enable any budding twin enthusiastic pilot to really push the flight envelope and wring this aircraft out. At the same time it’s a walk in the park to bring it back down for a beautiful scale landing, all this without the use of flaps!

RC Model C26416GUN Billet Machined 8X8 10T GL High-Mobility Off-Road Truck 1/10 Size ARTR

OVERVIEW
We took our very popular and unique 7T-GL 6X6 and created a longer, larger machine in the new 10T GL 8X8! Realistically modeled after the historical 10-ton military-spec all-terrain trucks, our 8X8 10T-GL High Mobility Truck is a massive machine that weighs in at 15-pounds! The build of this machine all starts with the backbone: a pre-assembled box-type extended ladder frame made from steel and alloy components. From here, you’ll find four Billet machined alloy axles: two independent-steer front axles with metal spools and HD driveshafts, and two more straight rear axles with metal gear differentials, full ball bearings, full alloy high-ratio center transmission, full-time eight-wheel drive, and a multi-link crawler-type suspension with separate alloy shocks and springs.                                                                                         Topping the chassis is a full aluminum, scale detailed, multi-piece metal cab and bed (assembly required) with features such as front and rear LED lights, dual electric winches, adjustable side mirrors, front skid plate, actual working rear tailgate, clear Lexan windows, full-sized spare wheel and tire, paintable interior set and metal rear wheel fenders. The center section features a pivoting top with a hidden electronics area underneath. A matching set of eight (nine including the spare) of our true beadlock 1.9-class alloy beadlock wheels and pre-mounted rock crawler tires round out the look.                                                                                                                                           NOTE: PHOTOS ABOVE SHOW COMPLETELY ASSEMBLED VEHICLE. Out of the box, the lower chassis (frame, axles, suspension, etc.) arrives 90% assembled; Upper cab, and trailer bed arrive un-assembled and requires assembly. Interior is made from Lexan, and must be painted. Shimming may be required for perfect alignment and fitment. Reference photos included; if you do not know how to assemble the chassis or body, please ask your local dealer for assistance. Before installation, please check metal-to-metal fasteners for tightness, and use liquid threadlock when required, as some components are assembled for packaging purposes only.                                           BODY/CHASSIS

NOTE: Instructions for installation are not included; if you do not know how to install the part, please ask your local dealer for assistance. All products require some prep out of the package – some components are assembled for packaging purposes only, so we strongly recommend that you check all metal-to-metal fasteners for tightness, check fitment and adjust if needed, and use liquid threadlock where applicable. Failure to do so is not a warranty-related incident.

Extra hardware, shims, or spacers may be required for some installations. Some parts may require permanent modification to the vehicle for fitment, and may eliminate certain OEM features. Some Integy-branded items may be only compatible with the vehicle’s OEM parts but not with another Integy-branded item due to design language. For multiple-fitment items, some parts may not be used based on application.                                                                                 

Focke-Wulf FW-190 Radio Controlled Gasoline Powered 55cc Giant Scale Almost-Ready-to-Fly Warbird Airplane

 

Brief History: The Fw 190 is widely regarded as Germany’s best fighter aircraft of World War II. Its appearance in the skies over France in early 1941 was a rude shock to the Allies, as it was clearly superior to any other plane. For nearly a year, until the debut of the Spitfire IX, the Fw 190 was the unmatched champion of the air war.

 

                                         

 

As the war progressed, the Fw 190 was developed into many variants as a pure fighter, a ground-attack fighter/bomber, and as a close-support aircraft. No fewer than 40 different versions were produced, with different combinations of engines, armament, wings, systems, and roles.

 

                                                                                                     

 

First flown on 1 June 1939, the Fw 190 served for the duration of the war, largely replacing several other aircraft types in the process, including the Junker Ju 87 Stuka dive bomber. Allied bombers dreaded the sight of these potent aircraft, as did the fighters who provided cover for them. Arguably, the Fw 190’s greatest impact on the Allied war effort was to spur ever-greater advances in technology and aircraft design to counter its threat.

Taigen Tanks Sherman M4A3 76mm Metal Edition 2.4GHz 1/16th Scale Airsoft RTR RC Tank

Quantity and quality

The M4 Sherman (named after the famous American Civil War general William T. Sherman) is one of the few really iconic fighting vehicles of the Allies during Word War Two, and one of the most famous tanks in history. But while this historic status was gained partly thanks to its intrinsic qualities, but also due to the sheer numbers in which they were provided, only surpassed by the Soviet Union’s T-34, with a staggering 50,000 total delivered. It remains by far the most widely used tank on the Allied side during the war.                                                                                                                                                                                      M4, early production version (1942), 13th Armored Regiment of the 1st Armored Division, Tunisia, March 1943. One of the rare Shermans actually painted sand beige in US Service.

It remains by far the most widely used tank on the Allied side during the war. It was derived into countless derivatives and had a very long postwar career which lasted well into the Cold War. It has been largely compared to the T-34, and had the occasion to confront some during the Korean War.

However, the Sherman was not as successful as it seemed. Derived in a haste from the previous and controversial M3 Lee/Grant, it was the first to bear a fully-traversing turret with a 75 mm (2.95 in) gun. It was designed from the very beginning for mass-production. Cheap and relatively simple to build, easy to maintain, reliable, roomy, sturdy, fast, well-armored and well-armed, it was the good-all-around armored vehicle the Allies had sought for until 1942, when it first arrived on the North African front.                                     

M4 Sherman, early production vehicle, 32nd Tank Battalion of the 3rd Armored Division, Normandy, 1944. Notice the “low visibility” stars.                  It literally soldiered in every corner of the globe, under many colors, from 1942 to the end of the war. These theaters included (in WWII alone) most of North Africa, Russia, most of Europe, the Eastern Indies, the Philippines, many Pacific islands and China.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      By 1940, Great Britain had found itself desperately short on tanks. Some were provided through the freshly signed Lend-Lease agreement. At the same time, the US Army, fully learning from the shock caused by the Blitzkrieg in Western Europe, was in the process of emergency modernization of its equipment. The M4 was, in fact, the type of medium tank the US industry was not yet prepared to build in early 1940, which led to the intermediate M3 Lee. The latter was to be equipped with a fully revolving turret at first, but the urge in production imposed the choice of a transitional, yet unsatisfactory solution, a 75 mm (2.95 in) gun in a hull sponson. So, by late August 1940, as the M3 production started, U.S. Army Ordnance Department tried many solutions for mating a fully traversing turret with the M3 hull, which eventually led to the M4.                                                                                                    Early production M4 Sherman, 40th Tank Battalion, 8th Armored Division, Belgium, February 1945, at the end of the battle of the Bulge.

The latter was to be equipped with a fully revolving turret at first, but the urge in production imposed the choice of a transitional, yet unsatisfactory solution, a 75 mm (2.95 in) gun in a hull sponson. So, by late August 1940, as the M3 production started, U.S. Army Ordnance Department tried many solutions for mating a fully traversing turret with the M3 hull, which eventually led to the M4.

On April 18, 1941, the U.S. Armored Forces Board chose the T6, among five designs, to be the blueprint of a pre-production series. The final mock-up was approved in May and the definitive prototype sent to the Aberdeen Proving Grounds for extensive trials in September 1941. Basically, it was an M3 armed with the same main gun relocated in a large, rounded revolving turret. By the standards of 1940, the M4 offered a dependable gun platform able to deal with the main German tanks of the time, the Panzer III and IV, support infantry and make a breakthrough through speed and firepower.                                                               M4 Sherman, 2nd Armored Division, 1st Free French Army, Operation Anvil Dragoon, Provence, August 1944.                                                                                         Its designing and manufacturing were eased by the borrowing of many parts and innovations from previous models, the Light Tank M2,  Medium Tank M2 and the M3, like the efficient and well-proven vertical volute spring suspension, the rubberized track links, but, perhaps above all, a highly standardized, compact, light and powerful aviation radial engine, the Continental R975. This model was already largely produced for the aircraft industry, which assured comfortable provision of spare parts and ease of maintenance by any trained personnel.                                                                                                                                   Early type M4, unknown unit, Normandy, summer 1944.

Cold war career and memorabilia

Despite being designed in 1941, the Sherman was still in service in many countries as far as the fall of the iron curtain in 1990, leaving the strange impression of a “living fossil”. This could be found in the many improvements performed on its chassis, a testimony to its sturdiness and adaptability, and the huge supplies of spare parts available due to an early standardization and unrivaled, at least in the West, mass production. The “Easy Eight” was the blueprint for some improvements and late wartime versions that fought under the US flag during the Korean war and later the Vietnam war, under South Vietnamese flag. The Israeli completely modernized the type, later known as the M51 “Super Sherman”, which performed well during the 1967 and 1973 wars, armed with a new 105 mm (4.13 in) high velocity gun.

1/72 Scale Radio Controlled Electric-Powered Almost-Ready-to-Run US Fletcher Class Destroyer Kit

Big, bold, beautiful-just like the originals.

Do you have what it takes to be a “Tin Can Sailor”? Tin Can Sailors fought the largest warships in the world with unarmored and lightly armed ships. Their Fletcher-Class Destroyers were tiny specks of metal on the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean… but their valor was legendary.                                                         AquaCraft honors that valor with this remote controlled 1/72 scale replica of a Fletcher-class Destroyer. Over five feet in length, this model is massive and incredibly detailed from the tops of the stacks to the twin counter-rotating propellers. Plus, you can actually sail it! Re-enact the Battle off Samar, where seven American destroyers turned back an entire Japanese Battle Group, or just enjoy the realism as you cruise for up to an hour on a single battery charge.                                                                                                                                                                                                            The Fletcher-Class Destroyer looks great on static display and even better on the water!                                                                                                                                                                                                                       The principal anti-submarine armament of any ship for decades, depth charges were simply massive drums of explosives set to explode at a pre-selected depth. Our Fletcher-class Destroyer includes four depth charge racks.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                The amidships 40 mm AA mount and 5-inch turrets #3 and #4 remove easily to reveal a hatch for your radio and electronic gear. Look inside and you’ll see two pre-installed 550-size motors, ready to power you across the lake.                                                                                        This exceptional model arrives nearly ready to go, pre-painted and mostly pre-assembled.

A-10 Thunderbolt II Dual 64mm EDF Jet 1100mm

The Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II was designed for the US Air Force for close air support. The prototype first flew in 1972 and was introduced into service in 1977. It is commonly known as the Warthog or Hog and houses the legendary GAU-8 Avenger 30mm Gatling gun. The A-10C is still being used by the US Airforce.                                                             

This is a well-made scale model of the legendary aircraft with loads of features. It comes complete with a hand painted pilot, legendary cannon, bombs and drop tanks to add to the beautifully crafted and realistic airframe in US Airforce colors. The plane is powered by two 64mm EDFs with 2836-3500KV motors, and 40A ESCs, producing 1700g of thrust. Also all servos are metal geared and if you need flaps then add another two 9g servos. Servoless retracts are standard.

Just like the real plane this model has amazing low level, slow speed maneuverability due to the wide wings and heaps of power.

Upgraded HSD Gray Fighting Falcon 7CH F-16 F16 105mm 12S 150A RC EDF Jet

PAYA LEBAR AIR BASE, Singapore — An F-16 Fighting Falcon from the 36th Fighter Squadron at Osan Air Base, South Korea, lands here after a mission during Commando Sling 04-3. U.S. and Singaporean Airmen trained together using realistic dissimilar aircraft air-to-air combat tactics. (U.S. Air Force photo by Master Sgt. Val Gempis)                                                                                                                                                                                     Mission
The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a compact, multi-role fighter aircraft. It is highly maneuverable and has proven itself in air-to-air combat and air-to-surface attack. It provides a relatively low-cost, high-performance weapon system for the United States and allied nations.

Features
In an air combat role, the F-16’s maneuverability and combat radius (distance it can fly to enter air combat, stay, fight and return) exceed that of all potential threat fighter aircraft. It can locate targets in all weather conditions and detect low flying aircraft in radar ground clutter. In an air-to-surface role, the F-16 can fly more than 500 miles (860 kilometers), deliver its weapons with superior accuracy, defend itself against enemy aircraft, and return to its starting point. An all-weather capability allows it to accurately deliver ordnance during non-visual bombing conditions.

In designing the F-16, advanced aerospace science and proven reliable systems from other aircraft such as the F-15 and F-111 were selected. These were combined to simplify the airplane and reduce its size, purchase price, maintenance costs and weight. The light weight of the fuselage is achieved without reducing its strength. With a full load of internal fuel, the F-16 can withstand up to nine G’s — nine times the force of gravity — which exceeds the capability of other current fighter aircraft.

The cockpit and its bubble canopy give the pilot unobstructed forward and upward vision, and greatly improved vision over the side and to the rear. The seat-back angle was expanded from the usual 13 degrees to 30 degrees, increasing pilot comfort and gravity force tolerance. The pilot has excellent flight control of the F-16 through its “fly-by-wire” system. Electrical wires relay commands, replacing the usual cables and linkage controls. For easy and accurate control of the aircraft during high G-force combat maneuvers, a side stick controller is used instead of the conventional center-mounted stick. Hand pressure on the side stick controller sends electrical signals to actuators of flight control surfaces such as ailerons and rudder.

Avionics systems include a highly accurate enhanced global positioning and inertial navigation systems, or EGI, in which computers provide steering information to the pilot. The plane has UHF and VHF radios plus an instrument landing system. It also has a warning system and modular countermeasure pods to be used against airborne or surface electronic threats. The fuselage has space for additional avionics systems.

Background
The F-16A, a single-seat model, first flew in December 1976. The first operational F-16A was delivered in January 1979 to the 388th Tactical Fighter Wing at Hill Air Force Base, Utah.

The F-16B, a two-seat model, has tandem cockpits that are about the same size as the one in the A model. Its bubble canopy extends to cover the second cockpit. To make room for the second cockpit, the forward fuselage fuel tank and avionics growth space were reduced. During training, the forward cockpit is used by a student pilot with an instructor pilot in the rear cockpit.

All F-16s delivered since November 1981 have built-in structural and wiring provisions and systems architecture that permit expansion of the multirole flexibility to perform precision strike, night attack and beyond-visual-range interception missions. This improvement program led to the F-16C and F-16D aircraft, which are the single- and two-place counterparts to the F-16A/B, and incorporate the latest cockpit control and display technology. All active units and many Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve units have converted to the F-16C/D.

The F-16 was built under an unusual agreement creating a consortium between the United States and four NATO countries: Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands and Norway. These countries jointly produced with the United States an initial 348 F-16s for their air forces. Final airframe assembly lines were located in Belgium and the Netherlands. The consortium’s F-16s are assembled from components manufactured in all five countries. Belgium also provides final assembly of the F100 engine used in the European F-16s. Recently, Portugal joined the consortium. The long-term benefits of this program will be technology transfer among the nations producing the F-16, and a common-use aircraft for NATO nations. This program increases the supply and availability of repair parts in Europe and improves the F-16’s combat readiness.

U.S. Air Force F-16 multirole fighters were deployed to the Persian Gulf in 1991 in support of Operation Desert Storm, where more sorties were flown than with any other aircraft. These fighters were used to attack airfields, military production facilities, Scud missiles sites and a variety of other targets.

During Operation Allied Force, U.S. Air Force F-16 multirole fighters flew a variety of missions to include suppression of enemy air defense, offensive counter air, defensive counter air, close air support and forward air controller missions. Mission results were outstanding as these fighters destroyed radar sites, vehicles, tanks, MiGs and buildings.

Since Sept. 11, 2001, the F-16 has been a major component of the combat forces committed to the war on terrorism flying thousands of sorties in support of operations Noble Eagle (Homeland Defense), Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan and Iraqi Freedom

Curtiss P-40 Warhawk RC Plane

The Flying Tigers’ plane-                                                                          The P-40 was the workhorse of the Allied aerial arsenal right through 1944. It may not have been as “hot” as later designs, but it was a sound design, based on the earlier P-36, mated to the Allison V-1710 engine, that Curtis was able to produce in large numbers. As Clair Chennault found out in China, the P-40 was heavier, faster, and sturdier than Japanese fighters, and it out-gunned them as well. Properly handled and below 15,000 feet, it was a lethal                                Colonel (later General Claire Lee Chennault) had been in China since the mid-Thirties. An outspoken advocate of “pursuit” (as fighter planes were called then), in an Army Air Force dominated by strategic bomber theorists, he alienated many of his superiors. But in China, equipped with P-40’s, he developed the basic fighter tactics that American pilots would use throughout the war.                          

The Japanese planes used over China were much more maneuverable than his Warhawks, whose advantages were speed in a dive, superior firepower, and better ability to absorb battle damage. Chennault worked out and documented the appropriate tactics that capitalized on the relative strengths of the American fighters: intercept, make a diving pass, avoid dogfighting, and dive away when in trouble. This remained the fundamental U.S. fighter doctrine throughout the Pacific War.

Chennault’s American Volunteer Group, popularly known as “The Flying Tigers” flew their P-40B’s and P-40C’s with great success against the Japanese aircraft.

AH-64 APACHE RC Helicopter

AH-64 APACHE

An Advanced Multi-role Helicopter

The AH-64 Apache is the world’s most advanced multi-role combat helicopter and is used by the U.S. Army and a growing number of international defense forces. Boeing has delivered more than 2,200 Apaches to customers around the world since the aircraft entered production. The U.S. Army Apache fleet has accumulated (as of July 2016) more than 4.2 million flight hours since the first AH-64A was delivered to the U.S. Army in January 1984.                                                                                                                ah-64-apache-longbow_009-ts600

Conducts distributed operations, precision strikes against relocatable targets, and provides armed reconnaissance when required in day, night, obscured battlefield and adverse weather conditions.

The AH-64 Apache is the Army’s heavy division/corps attack helicopter. The AH-64D Longbow remanufacture effort incorporates a millimeter wave fire control radar, radar frequency interferometer, fire-and-forget radar-guided HELLFIRE missile and cockpit management and digitization enhancements. The combination of the FCR, RFI, and the advanced navigation and avionics suite of the aircraft provide increased situational awareness, lethality and survivability.                                                       ah-64-apache-longbow_007-ts600

The AH-64 Apache has a four-blade main rotor and a four-blade tail rotor. The crew sits in tandem, with the pilot sitting behind and above the copilot/gunner. Both crew members are capable of flying the aircraft and performing methods of weapon engagements independently.

The crew compartment has shielding between the cockpits, such that at least one crew member can survive hits. The compartment and the rotor blades are designed to sustain a hit from 23-millimeter (0.91 in) rounds. The airframe includes some 2,500 pounds (1,100 kg) of protection and has a self-sealing fuel system to protect against ballistic projectiles.[45] The aircraft was designed to meet the crashworthiness requirements of MIL-STD-1290,[46] which specifies minimum requirement for crash impact energy attenuation to minimize crew injuries and fatalities. This was achieved through incorporation of increased structural strength, crashworthy landing gear, seats and fuel system. Up to six AH-64 Apaches can be safely fitted inside the cargo hold of a USAF Lockheed C-5 Galaxy.                              ah-64-apache-longbow_005-ts600

One of the most distinguishing features at the introduction of the Apache was its helmet mounted display, the Integrated Helmet and Display Sighting System (IHADSS); among other abilities the pilot or gunner can slave the helicopter’s 30 mm automatic M230 Chain Gun to his helmet, making the gun track head movements to point at where he looks. The M230E1 can be alternatively fixed to a locked forward firing position, or controlled via the Target Acquisition and Designation System (TADS). The AH-64’s standard of performance for aerial gunnery is to achieve at least 1 hit for every 30 shots fired at a wheeled vehicle at a range of 800–1,200 m (870–1,300 yd).

The AH-64 is designed to endure front-line environments and to operate during the day or night and in adverse weather via its avionics and onboard sensor suites. These systems include the Target Acquisition and Designation System, Pilot Night Vision System (TADS/PNVS), passive infrared countermeasures, GPS, and the IHADSS.                                                                                                                                                            Credits: http://www.military.com/equipment/ah-64-apache-longbow
