1/24 Opel Blitz Classic

RUBBER TYRES – DECALS FOR 2 VERSIONS – COLORS INSTRUCTION SHEET

The Opel Blitz project was set up with the aim of mass producing a robust and reliable commercial vehicle that could be used for different applications and tasks. Opel began production of the early trucks, based on a typically US “layout”, in its Rüsselsheim plant in the early 1930s. This was a success story that evolved over time and continued until the mid-1970s. The Opel Blitz’s sturdy structural characteristics were noted by the Wehrmacht and subsequently deployed by them during the Second World War, in both the 4×2 and 4×4 versions. However, its wartime role was later to be eclipsed by its the great commercial success as a civilian vehicle. During the post-war reconstruction period the Opel Blitz was indispensable to Germany’s recovery, being used by merchants, craftsmen, industrialists and many others to rebuild the country.

1/48 EA-18G Growler

COLOR INSTRUCTION SHEET – SUPER DECALS SHEET FOR 3 VERSIONS

FIGURE NOT INCLUDED

The Boeing EA-18 G Growler was designed to fulfill a specific U.S. Navy requirement. The aim was to commission a specialized carrier-based electronic warfare aircraft to replace the outdated Grumman EA-6B Prowler. The Growler is directly derived from the tandem-seat fighter F/A-18 F Super Hornet and retains all of its main aerodynamic features and characteristics. Its General Electric engines enable the Growler to attain a maximum speed of mach 1.8 and its flight performance is similar to that of the main carrier-based aircraft. The 2-man crew consists of the pilot and a WSO (Weapon System Officer). In place of the F/A-18’s 20 mm cannon the Growler has a dedicated electronic warfare system mounted. Additionally, on its hard points, the Growler can carry high and low band jamming pods, additional fuel tanks and AIM-120 AMRAAM missiles.

RUBBER TYRES – DECALS FOR 4 VERSIONS – COLORS INSTRUCTION SHEET

Beginning in the mid ‘30s Germany sought to improve the mobility and mechanization of its Army. One of the more important requirements of its ambitious development program was the adoption of a standard military chassis which would optimize cross country mobility. Among the different versions that were proposed, the medium off road passenger cars, four wheel drive platform, built by Opelwerk and Auto Union found favour.The Wehrmacht used them in various configurations as troop transports, as tow tractors and in reconnaissance roles. The Kfz. 12, built by Horch (Horch was part of the Auto Union group together with Wanderer, Audi and DKW), proved to be very reliable and robust in any operating environment due to its simple but effective design.

COLOR INSTRUCTION SHEET – SUPER DECALS SHEET FOR 4 VERSIONS

FIGURE NOT INCLUDED

The Jaguar ground attack aircraft emerged in the 1960s from a collaborative project between the French and British aviation industries and was operated by the Royal Air Force until the late mid-2000s, thereby demonstrating extraordinary longevity and operational efficiency. Its two turbojet engines were able to attain and also exceed Mach 1.6. It has been deployed on numerous and quite often highly complex missions in operational theatres, including the Balkans and Iraq. The T2 two-seat trainer version was developed for operational conversion of British RAF pilots. It was also capable in its secondary role of ground attack and close support missions but unlike the single-seat version, it was armed with a single 30mm Aden cannon.
