Impressive vehicles of military history
The Second World War brought new doctrines in motorized warfare. For the first time, the focus was on the concentrated use of tanks and mobile infantry. The model kits from Revell offer an insight into this historically multifaceted era. In four different scales, collections can be expanded to include military and civilian vehicles true to the original. But also on its own each detailed kit offers an impressive sight and many hours of building and painting fun.
Models for large battlefields or detail shots
The different scales allow historically authentic model building in different orders of magnitude. Depending on the hobbyist's interest, extensive tank battles can be represented in 1:144 or 1:72 scale. The aim can also be to depict a certain combat unit such as the infamous 7th Panzer Division or the Africa Corps completely and historically correct. Especially the large offer of German tanks facilitates such a project. If individual scenes or special details are to be focused, the 1:32 scale is suitable. The size and impressive level of detail of the miniatures allow the technical history of individual armoured vehicles to be told. This size is also convincing for exhibits. With an average of over 200 individual parts, the high level of detail is guaranteed. From the hull to the chains, climbing struts and towing hooks to the hatch of the turret: every part of the tank is accurately modelled on its historical counterpart. Even the commander's cufflinks can be highlighted.
Numerous tanks and support vehicles
With the TIGER and the PANTHER, Revell offers miniatures of the two best-known German tanks of the Second World War. Their construction and silhouette determined the appearance of later tanks and come closest to what today's battle tanks look like. With a rotating turret and faithful replicas of the 7.6 and 8.8 combat vehicle cannon, the steel colossuses can be brought to life. Meanwhile, the tank destroyer ELEFANT shows the 8.8s embedded in its angular fuselage. The model kit of the Panzerkampfwagen II deals historically and authentically with a combat vehicle from the early phase of the Second World War. No less detailed, the model shows that the support of the infantry was still in the foreground here. The Red Army T34 kit offers insights into one of the most effective Russian tanks of the entire war. Motorized vehicles were also used behind the front. Revell's kits for the Kadett K38 Sal, the M34 Tactical Truck or the Type 82 Kübelwagen allow detailed depictions of supply lines and troop transports.
Assembly and painting made easy
For the assembly and painting of Revell model kits we recommend the plastic adhesive Contacta Professional and the Revell colour range. The colour recommendations can be read directly from the product information. The use of an airbrush is also recommended, especially when painting vehicles. Large areas and camouflage patterns are particularly easy to apply. In Revell's model shop, both high-quality airbrush spray guns and the corresponding compressors can be ordered. The Revell Weathering Set can be used to create rust and dirt effects for the authentic follow-up of the models. Thus, model tanks and vehicles are realistically designed according to the conditions at that time.
