Vauxhall D-type Staff Ambulance
  Vauxhall D-type Ambulance - British ambulance of the First World War, evolved by Vauxhall Motors from the famous Type D staff car. The car was redesigned for the transportation of wounded soldiers from the battlefield to military hospitals, and although it was not put into series production, it undertook this honorable mission in the early years of the Great War, along with other similarly converted cars, and it provided a foundation for the wider use of more modern advanced vehicles in this role in the British armed forces.

M-42 US3/4 ton 4x4 Command truck
  M42 - Command Car, developed from the widely used M37 truck, which was produced in large numbers in the 1950s. The vehicle was intended for the organisational needs of troops in field conditions, however it was not as numerous as the M37. There was no separate production of the M42 as such, instead the Dodge company made special conversion sets to turn the M37 into the M42, consisting of a new canvas awning, enhanced lighting in the rear of the vehicle under the canopy, a table for operational meetings and more powerful radio equipment. The exact number of machines converted to the M42 is unknown, however they were used alongside the M37 in many of the local conflicts of the second half of the 20th Century.

FWD Model B 3-ton & BL 8-inch howitzer Mk. VI
  FWD Model B 3-ton Lorry – American truck of the World War I period, created by the Four Wheel Drive Auto Company in 1912. Like all machines of that time, it had quite a primitive design, but one particular innovation (the engine over the frame and the driver's cabin shifted forward) revolutionised the automotive industry. The FWD Model B was widely used in World War I. Of the total of 17,555 built, the vast majority (14,473) went to the US Army, while another 3,000 were sold to Great Britain. Trucks of this type were widely used not only in their usual role, but as mobile repair shops, ammunition carriers and tractors for heavy artillery, such as the Vickers Mk.VI howitzer.

Vickers VC-10 K4 Type 1170 tanker
  Vickers Super VC10 K4 – British aerial refueling aircraft, converted from the Vickers Super VC10 type 1151 passenger aircraft. Unlike its predecessor the VC10 K3, the new version had no fuel tanks in the fuselage, and planes of this type were principally intended for the aerial refueling of front line combat aircraft. Four such planes were rebuilt at the end of 1970, which in the next three decades took part in many well-known conflicts, among them the Falklands War, the first Iraq war (Desert Storm), the war in Afghanistan, the conflict in the former Yugoslavia and the second Iraq War (2003). Their last use was in 2011, when British forces supported the operation against the Gaddafi regime in Libya. In 2013, the type was removed from the structure of the Royal Air Force and it took places of honor in museums in the UK after more than 30 years of intensive military operations.

Bristol 175 Britannia African Safari
 

Bristol 175 Britannia – British four- engine turboprop passenger plane, designed in the late 1940s by the Bristol aero manufacturer. Series production began in the mid-1950s, and the first flight with paying passengers was at the beginning of 1957. The Bristol 175 Britannia was intended to be the flagship airliner of the leading British airline B.O.A.C., but several technical problems held back its development, limiting the production of the type to 86 units. Apart from BOAC, planes of this type were used by other well known air carriers, such as Monarch; and African Safari Airways, created in 1967, the principal bases of which were airports in Africa which had intensive charter flights from major European capitals at that time. Operation of the Bristol Britannia by Safari African Airlines airline lasted a relatively short while, until 1972, when its fleet was finally changed to jet aircraft exclusively.

L-19/O-1 Bird Dog
  American light communications plane and artillery spotter developed in the late 1940s. Unlike previous designs in this class it had an all-metal design, and it could also be used for basic or operational training. The type was delivered to the US Air Force and also for the US Marine Corps. The plane took part in two major military conflicts of the second half of the Twentieth Century - the Korean and Vietnam Wars. Apart from its primary tasks it was often also used as a forward air controller, directing more powerful attack planes to the enemy's positions. In total more than 3,500 machines of this type were built, their military service lasted until 1974, and after replacement by more modern types the Bird Dog was used for civil air patrol and was sold on to private owners.

Opel 3.6-47 Blitz Omnibus Staffwagen
 

Opel Blitz 3.6-47 type W39 Ludewig – German staff bus of the WWII period, designed on the chassis of the well-known Opel Blitz three ton truck. Series production lasted from 1939 until 1943, at the Ludewig plant in the German city of Essen. Of the almost three thousand Blitz Omnibuses produced during WWII, a small number were converted into mobile command vehicles. Staff buses were equipped with a variety of special equipment and were used in all of the war's theaters of operations.

Heinkel He51 B.2
  Heinkel He51 B.2 – German floatplane fighter of the mid-1930s, adapted from the Heinkel He 51B fighter. The main role of this type of machine was to patrol the coast and escort warships in the coastal zone. In total 46 examples of this variant were produced, which were in service during the second half of the Thirties. With the beginning of World War II, they were considered obsolete and were transferred to naval aviation schools and training units.

Vauxhall D-Type
 

Vauxhall D-Type – British staff car of World War I. It was created by the Vauxhall Motors company based on its predecessor the Type C, better known by the informal name 'Prince Henry'. It was produced in large quantities (more than 1,500 units), and used in all the theaters of conflict of the Great War. One of the Vauxhall cars belonged to the King George the Fifth, who made a trip in this car to meet the troops right after the end of the war.

C-141B Starlifter
  C-141B Starlifter – American jet cargo aircraft, developed through modification of the C-141A. It was intended for the transportation of military freight over long distances. During 1977-1979 a total of 271 machines were upgraded to the new version, whose operation continued until the late 1990s. The C-141B participated in Operation Desert Storm in 1991, however over the next few years it began to be gradually taken out of service because of the wearing out of the design. The C-141B owns a number of world aviation records, and among all military transport planes of the U.S. Air Force it was the safest for all its years of operation.

Opel Blitz Kfz.385 Tankwagen
 

Opel Blitz Kfz.385 Tankwagen – German vehicle, airfield fuel servicing truck developed using the chassis of the well known three-ton Opel Blitz 3.6-3000 truck. Production began in 1941 and continued until 1943, during which time several hundred of this type of truck were produced. Despite their relatively small numbers, their use was very intensive, from North Africa to the Eastern Front. The fuel servicing truck was suitable for the supply of fuel to many different types of plane of the Luftwaffe, and in the last few months of the war some machines of this type were employed by units equipped with the Me 262 jet fighter.

British Armoured Car Pattern 1920 Mk.II (modified w/sand tyres)
  This first “Armoured Car” was built by the well known British automobile firm Rolls-Royce during WWI. In the early post-war years it underwent its first stage of modernization. It was widely used during the inter-war period of the 1920s and 1930s in many colonies of British Empire, principally for the repressing of revolts. The Rolls-Royce Armoured Car lived on to take part in the battles of WWII, mainly in Africa and the Far East. By then the car was further improved, with new wheels and disks, and a strengthened armored body. On top of that, the shape of the turret was changed and the armament was substantially increased. The changes were made to upwards of thirty of the cars which were used by British units until near the end of WWII.

WWII British Armoured Car
(Pattern 1920 Mk.I)
 

The British Armoured Car Pattern 1920 Mk.I was one of the first attempts in the history of 20th Century warfare to combine the construction of the car with armament, making it well-protected against an opponent's firearms. In the construction of this car the chassis of the Silver Ghost was used as a basis. A new armored superstructure was set on top of it, with a rotating turret fitted with a variety of different weapons. During WWI this car found wide application at the fronts in the African colonies and the Middle East, where long and exhausting battles to rearrange the map of the world were taking place. After the end of the war these armored cars executed, not for the first time, the functions of police constabulary, and keeping peace among mutinous tribes. Some modernization allowed them to carry on past the beginning of WWII and take part in its first stage, again mainly in the colonies of the British Empire.

 
We also want to surprise you with model kit of British airliner - Vickers Super VC10, which you can have in two different options - #313 Type 1151 (BOAC Airlines) and #329 Type 1154 (East African Airways)

Vickers Super VC10 Type 1154
(East African Airways)

Vickers Super VC10 – was a long-range British airliner designed and built by Vickers-Armstrongs and its first flight was in 1962. The airliner was designed to operate on long-distance Empire routes and commanded excellent ‘Hot and High’ performance for operations from African airports. With its introduction by BOAC in April 1964, the VC10 became an immensely popular aircraft in the BOAC fleet, both with passengers and crew, being particularly praised for its comfort and low cabin noise levels. It was BOAC’s most successful Aircraft in terms of passenger numbers carried. The VC10 still holds the record for the fastest London to New York crossing of the Atlantic, of 5 hours and 1 minute. Other major users of the VC10 were East African Airways and the Royal Air Force, the latter only withdrawing from service its last VC10 in 2013.

Boeing 720 "Caesar's Chariot"
(Bee Gees USA tour, 1979)
 

Boeing 720 – passenger plane, modification of the famous Boeing 707 passenger transcontinental airliner, created for the exploitation of regional and medium-haul air routes in 1959. In total 65 aircraft were built, used mainly by US airlines. Aside from its usual role as a passenger plane, there were two planes which significantly differed from the rest, and some celebrated rock and pop stars of the time were their passengers. N7224U, which belonged to the luxury Hotel Caesar Palace and had been christened Caesar's Chariot was the second in the 'air odyssey' of the Led Zeppelin group. This plane was also leased by the managers of one of the biggest pop groups of all time, the Bee Gees, and flew them across the USA on their major tour in support of their Spirits Having Flown album in 1980.

Series production lasted from 1939 until 1943, at the Ludewig plant in the German city of Essen. From 1941 a number of changes were made to the construction of the bus, in particular, the spare wheel was moved to the left side of the body in a special niche. Almost three thousand units of this type were prodused during this time, which were employed at every front of the war, as a conveyance for officers and an ambulance, as well as a staff transport, a telephone exchange, a radio station and more.

A passenger favourite, first of all for special comfort, it was relegated to the second tier with the advent of the American Boeing 707. Monarch Airlines used 8 planes of this type, and the rest were sold to Canada, Cuba, Spain, Mexico, Israel and other countries. Separate machines were converted as transports. As a passenger plane it was used up to the beginning of the 1980s, and as a transport continued to fly in the mid-1990s.

The plane had a sturdy construction and was very elegant externally, and displayed good flight characteristics. At the commencement of military operations during the civil war in Spain in 1936 it was one of the first types to equip the Condor Legion, engaging in air combat with the Republican Air Force. It was generally inferior to its rivals and was soon retired from the front line and transferred to training and other units.

The main objective was to destroy aircraft ground targets from the air at any time, thus it was fitted with a variety of special equipment (Doppler radar, infrared sensors, laser rangefinder, on-board computers). Initially the AC/NC-123K was only to be an experimental aircraft, but in wartime conditions in Vietnam, two machines were converted to this standard and had full military trials from 1969 until 1971, and after the program were converted back into standard C-123 transports. The two machines managed to destroy several hundred enemy ground targets of different kinds, mainly trucks and boats in the valley of the River Mekong.

The machine was designed specifically to combat ground targets, which were a significant problem for the US military command. Where their opponents offered only weak air defense the AC-47s were effective weapons in the zone of the so-called “Ho Chi Minh Trail”, but with the advent of substantial losses they were gradually replaced by more modern gunships. After the withdrawal of the US Air Force, some of them were used by Thailand and Laos up to the early 1970s. In total about 60 machines of this type were rebuilt or converted.

The plane had a somewhat unusual configuration – a fuselage in the center which acted as the cargo compartment, and two long booms which began with the power units and ended with the tail assembly. The aircraft was widely used by the U.S. Air Force, and also by the air forces of France, India and other countries. With the advent of the more modern C-130 it began to be relegated to a secondary role, and in the late 1960s was finally withdrawn from military service in the United States.

Fairchild HC-123B Provider
 

Fairchild HC-123B Provider – American military transport plane developed by the Chase firm in the early post-war years. It was initially planned as a glider, but engines were installed in the design later on. After 1953, series production was taken on by the aircraft manufacturer Fairchild. Equipping the U.S. Air Force it started appearing in 1955;

Apart from the Air Force, the Provider also served with the Coast Guard as the HC-123B. Its most visible difference was the AN/APN-158 radar installed in the nose, requiring changes to the nose fairing due to its excessive size, and giving the plane its characteristic look. Six machines were converted in total, and extensively operated in different parts of the USA and beyond. With the advent of the more modern HC-130, these planes were taken out of service.

It was originally planned as a special vehicle for anti-aircraft defense as part of a mobile battalion protecting the highest officials of Germany. Later it was transferred to the air defenses protecting against the raids of allied aircraft on the cities of Germany. In 1944 the unit was almost completely destroyed in battles with the Soviet armies in the territories of Romania and Hungary.
