Meng Panther Ausf. A Late 1/35

Panther Ausf. A Late German Medium Tank Sd.Kfz.171 Meng – Nr. TS-035 – 1:35 2018 is the year of the Panther.

SR-71 Blackbird Lockheed Martin SR-71 Blackbird Italeri – No.145 – 1/72 One of the most exciting air planes ever built is the Lockheed Martin SR-71 Blackbird and very few come even close to the achievements that were made with this masterpiece of engineering – not just whilst flying it but designing and building it!
