Cleaning house.  Produced from 1952-1959 as anti-aircraft artillery, the twin 40mm Bofors guns of the M42 "Duster" were designed to sweep aircraft out of the sky. With the advent of jet engines, however, it became increasingly difficult to down planes. So the army did what it does best, it improvised. On the battlefields of Vietnam, the Duster was pressed into a point-defense role. Few enemies wanted to confront the awesome firepower of the Duster which could fire 240 40mm shells every minute. Kit features five figures, interior detail, storage bins, and tool pack.

Sherman M4A1 Screamin' Mimi 1:32

M1059931 Available: 1
Sherman tanks were noted for their efficiency and reliability, but not necessarily their power. To address this deficiency, many different weapons were mounted on the basic Sherman. One of the most psychologically devastating of these was the Sherman 'Calliope'. The T-34 'Calliope' mounted sixty 4.5" rockets in tubes above the tank. Though not particularly accurate, these fin-stabilized rockets, when fired en masse, created one heck of a mess downrange. Kit features a Sherman you can build with or without the launcher, as well as a driver and two crewmen figures.
