The Saratoga is part of the U.S. Atlantic fleet and participated in operation Desert Storm in 1990/91. Launched in 1956, this aircraft carrier is continuously up-dated, especially its radar and electronic systems.
Introduced to the RNLI in 1995, the all-weather Severn Class Lifeboat is the largest in their fleet. It has a range of 250 nautical miles and a top speed of 25 knots. It carries a powered Y boat that can be launched and recovered by a lightweight crane to enable rescues close to shore. It propellers are protected so it can take ground without damage.
The design of this Italeri 1/72 compact German army tank destroyer was based on the hull of Czechoslovakian 38(t) tank. The Hetzer, which was pressed into service in the second half of 1944, proved to be an extremely efficient tank against even the most potent Allied military vehicles.
This Italeri 1/72 vehicle was one of the most powerful battle tanks in service during World War II. Because of its heavy armor, complex suspension systems and a complicated maintenance-prone engine, the King Tiger tank was not very reliable.
