M1A1 Abrams: Italeri
M1A1 Abrams Main Battle Tank: 1:35 scale
The M1 Abrams entered service in 1980 as the US Army’s new main battle tank to replace the M60 series. Over time, the M1 evolved from its original 105mm M68 L/52 main gun in common with the earlier M60A1/A3 to the Rheinmetall 120mm smoothbore M256A1 L/44 gun also used by the Leopard 2 tank. In addition to its advanced armor protection and fire control system, the Abrams was the first to employ a gas turbine engine for propulsion in place of the conventional diesel engines used by nearly all other modern tanks. This combination made the Abrams a very agile and formidable weapon system on the battlefield. Since its introduction, the Abrams has been remanufactured into newer and more capable configurations including the M1A1 which introduced the 120mm gun and the M1A1 AIM (Abrams Integrated Management) which modernizes the tank with improved sensors and digital situational awareness. The M1A1 continues as the main battle tank of the US Marine Corps.
Italeri produced this M1A1 Abrams in 1/35 scale some time back and has been reissued periodically. This kit captures the details of the standard U.S. Army issue M1A1 as it appeared before going to Desert Shield/Storm. This kit is molded in tan styrene and presented on four parts trees plus a group of resin parts.
Among the features and options in this kit:
- No motorization holes in lower hull
- T158 link and length track
- Correct details on hulls and turret
- Choice of APU on rear turret basket or rear of hull
- Positionable crew hatches
- Detailed driver’s crew station in resin
- Some details provided inside of turret
- Positionable engine deck hatches and rear engine doors
- Detailed engine and transmission
- Detailed battery compartment
This kit has lots of potential. If you have an M88 ARV kit handy, this would make a nice diorama or vignette depicting an engine change in the field. That resin engine will look great whether it is in the engine compartment or next to the tank. While this kit depicts the tank as it would look between 1985 and 1990, there are aftermarket updates out there to add the various details to bring the tank up to date including TUSK I and TUSK II armor kits.

Panther Ausf. D Pz.Kpfw.V: Italeri/ Testors
Panther Ausf. D Pz.Kpfw.V: 1:35 Scale
The Panther was developed for the German Army more than 50 years ago. It was one of the most efficient and famous vehicles of WWII. It was created together with the well-known tank mark VI Tiger. This tank entered service in 1943 supporting the Mark IV tanks, which had difficulties to oppose the onslaught of Soviet T-34 tanks on the Eastern front. During the following two years of the war this powerful tank was present in all war zones: Italy, France as well as during the final battles on german soil. It proved its qualities against its adversaries, from Sherman to Stalin.

Autoblinda Ab41: Italeri/ Testors
Autoblinda Ab41 : 1:35 Scale
The AB 40 was an advanced armored car in its day. First revealed at a Fiat plant in 1939, this vehicle featured four-wheel drive and two spare wheels mounted in such a way that it was nearly impossible to high-center the AB 40 on an obstacle.
The AB 41 was introduced in 1941 which incorporated a number of engineering improvements. It still retained the 20mm main gun and turret of the AB 40. The AB 41 could reach 70 kph on roadways and up to 40 kph off-road.
The problem with the AB 41 was inadequate armor and an overly complex four-wheel steering system. After approximately 450 AB 41s were produced, the type was replaced by the improved AB 43.
In addition to service within the Italian Army, the AB 41 also served in the Wehrmacht as the Pz.Sp.Wg. AB 41 201 (i), primarily within Italy in 1944.
