Marmon Herrington MK3 - Mk3A

These Armoured cars were made in South Africa during WWII and were used in
large numbers not only in the desert war but also in the Far East. Captured
vehicles were used by the Germans as well as the Japanese.With these two
models as a basis a large number of conversions can be made. For example
the Germans used a turretless captured vehicle and the allies one with the
turret removed and replaced by a 2pdr AT gun.

Kit 007 - Weasel M29 Cargo Carrier - master by Hans van Oerle
Kit 008 - Weasel M29C - master by Hans van Oerle
M29 Cargo Carrier
The carrier was originally designed as a vehicle for use in arctic terrain, this with the idea of a future invasion of Norway in mind. The vehicle
could float but had only a very limited freeboard and a low speed in water.
The M29C had floatation tanks fitted to the front and rear, because of this there was a bigger freeboard and less resistance in the water so
the speed in the water increased. Also two rudders were fitted on the rear to improve the steering while in the water
Kit 009 - Daf 139 Amphibious car - The correct model - Photo and master by Hans van Oerle
DAF amphibious car.
The DAF 139 amphibious car was under development for the Dutch army in 1939/40.
Only one prototype was made and tested, it seems it disappeared without a trace during the fighting in may 1940. Perhaps it is still hidden
somewhere in a barn?
Kit 010/011 - Marmon Herrington T14 and T16 - Photo by Hans van Oerle and master by Andrew Crutchley
Marmon-Herrington T14 and T16
The masters for these two models were made by Andrew Crutchley, the only difference between the two versions is the location of the turret. These tanks were originally ordered by the Netherlands Purchasing Commission but after Pearl Harbour the contracts were taken over by the US army. Although called the worst tank made in the USA they used it for a long time for training and security duties.

Kit 031 - Dutch Vickers 7.5 TL nr.1 AA Gun - (master by Hans van Oerle) - gun for kit 020
Vickers 7.5 cm AA Gun
The British firm of Vickers designed this Anti-Aircraft gun in the early 1930's. It was employed by the Dutch Army under the designation 7.5 TL, TL is an abbreviation of "Tegen Luchtdoelen" meaning anti-arial targets. The Dutch guns were license built by the state owned firm of Artillery Inrichtingen and came into service from 1935 onwards. They were the mainstay of the Dutch anti-aircraft defences. Prior the outbreak of the war the Dutch Army also acquired 7,5 cm Skoda AA guns. Therefore the designation 7,5 TL was changed into 7,5 TL nr1.
The guns were towed by Trado equipped Chevrolet and Ford artillery tractors (Giesbers kit no.20). These tractors carried the entire the gun crew and ammonution.
In May 1940 the German air force lost about 300 aircraft to AA-guns during their operations over The Netherlands. Roughly a 110 losses are credited to the Dutch heavy anti-aircraft guns included, among other, the 7,5 TL. After the surrender of the Dutch army, the guns were taken over by the German army who employed them under the designation 7,5 Flak Vickers M35(H). Other users of this type gun were China, Finland and Denmark. Captured Denmark guns were also employed by the Germans but were designated 7,5cm flak(D).
In Dutch service the guns were painted dull olive green, exept for the barrel and the gun cradle, which received a dark brown anti-corrosive coating.

Model built by Tony Ivey
The kit is straight out of the box, except that I added a figure, detailed the hatch and replaced the steering control arms with plastic rod.
Painting was done with a pre-shading coat, then the base coat, then a dry-brush coat for the camo. After that I highlighted the rivets and other
details with a light gray pencil. The suspension was painted gunmetal first, and then a dry brush of aluminum. Dull-Cote between each painting layer
and after all decals were applied to seal them in.
Cheers, Tony "Panzer 1946" Ivey
