1/72 TORNADO GR.1
The multirole Tornado is a twin-engine combat aircraft with a variable-sweep wing. This kind of aircraft is the result of a joint development project carried out by British, German and Italian companies. Although during its lifetime it has been used for several purposes (ground attack, electronic combat/reconnaissance, interceptor), its main role has always been to perform low-altitude penetrating strike missions. Tornado can load and use a powerful and varied set of offensive weapons. The Tornado baptism of fire took place in 1991 during the Gulf War. The British Royal Air Force Tornado Gr. 1s, deployed on Bahrain and Saudi Arabia airbases, were crucial during “Operation Granby”.

1/72 RB-66 – B DESTROYER
The twin-engine high swept wing Douglas RB-66 Destroyer entered in service in the mid- 50s to equip the USAF photo-reconnaissance squadrons. Derived, as the Douglas B-66 bomber version, from the A-3 Skywarrior, it had adopted a lot of changes compared to the US Navy aircraft. Thanks to the two J71 turbojet engines, the Destroyer was able to reach a max speed of 940 Km/h and guarantee an operative range of 1,800 miles. The equipment for the reconnaissance were installed in the loading bombs bay. A lot of RB-66s had been used by the USAF Squadrons located in Great Britain, Germany and Japan during the escalation of the Cold Wars proving their effectiveness in the intelligence and recon duties.

1/9 German Military Motorcycle with side car
In 1938, based on a specific request of the German army, BMW and Zundapp received the brief to start a co-joint development project able to guarantee the highest number of common components to optimize the maintenance activities and the spare parts logistic. The prototypes had been released on 1940 and the production started at the beginning of 1941. Its peculiar feature was to have the side-car wheel that was driven with an axle connected to the rear wheel of the motorcycle. These were fitted with a locking differential and selectable gear ratios to optimize the on-road / off-road performance. The twin-cylinder engine with a displacement of 750 cc was capable of delivering 26 HP. The BMW R75 was able to reach the max speed of 95 Km/h. It was widely used, proving its realiability and sturdiness, on all most important operating theaters and in all environmental conditions (from North Africa to Russia).
