SKU ITA-5609
Brand ITALERI
Scale: 1/35
Nation: Germany
Period: WWII
Type: Submarine
Category Kit

Kit U-Boot Biber Midget Submarine in scala 1/35 - Modello Italeri. Il U-Boot Biber è un sommergibile tascabile (o "midget submarine") tedesco utilizzato durante la Seconda Guerra Mondiale. Progettato e costruito per missioni speciali e attacchi contro le navi alleate, il Biber era parte della strategia della Kriegsmarine (la marina militare tedesca) per cercare di ribaltare le sorti del conflitto nel teatro marittimo. Caratteristiche Principali del Biber Progettazione e Costruzione: Origini: Il Biber fu sviluppato in risposta alla crescente necessità di armi più agili e versatili per attaccare le navi alleate in modo furtivo. Fu uno dei vari tipi di sommergibili tascabili prodotti dalla Germania durante la guerra. Dimensioni: Misurava circa 9 metri di lunghezza e 1,6 metri di larghezza, con un dislocamento di circa 6 tonnellate in superficie. Equipaggio e Struttura: Equipaggio: Era operato da un singolo uomo, che gestiva tutte le operazioni del sommergibile, compresa la navigazione e il lancio dei siluri. Design: La struttura era piuttosto semplice e spartana, con una cabina di comando pressurizzata e una visibilità limitata attraverso un periscopio. Motorizzazione e Prestazioni: Motore: Il Biber era equipaggiato con un motore a benzina per la navigazione in superficie e un motore elettrico per la propulsione subacquea. Velocità: Poteva raggiungere una velocità massima di circa 6,5 nodi in superficie e 5 nodi in immersione. Autonomia: Aveva un'autonomia di circa 100 miglia nautiche in superficie e circa 8 miglia nautiche in immersione. Armamento: Siluri: Il Biber era armato con due siluri esterni, montati sui lati dello scafo, ognuno dei quali poteva essere lanciato contro navi nemiche. Mine: In alcune missioni, i siluri potevano essere sostituiti con mine navali. Ruolo Operativo e Missioni: Missioni Furtive: Il Biber fu progettato per eseguire missioni furtive, penetrando nelle aree portuali e nelle rotte di navigazione nemiche per piazzare siluri o mine. Teatri di Operazione: Fu utilizzato principalmente nel Mar del Nord, nel Canale della Manica e nei porti controllati dagli Alleati. Efficacia e Problemi: Limitazioni Tecniche: Nonostante l'ingegnosità del design, il Biber soffriva di numerosi problemi tecnici, tra cui scarsa manovrabilità, autonomia limitata e vulnerabilità ai danni. Successi Limitati: A causa di questi problemi, il successo operativo del Biber fu limitato, con molte missioni che finirono in fallimenti e perdite di equipaggi. Conclusione Il U-Boot Biber rappresenta uno sforzo innovativo della Kriegsmarine per impiegare sommergibili tascabili in missioni speciali durante la Seconda Guerra Mondiale. Sebbene abbia avuto un impatto operativo limitato a causa di vari problemi tecnici, il Biber rimane un esempio interessante di come la Germania cercò di utilizzare tecnologie e tattiche non convenzionali per contrastare la superiorità marittima alleata. La sua storia evidenzia le sfide e i rischi associati all'uso di sommergibili tascabili in guerra.

Scale: 1/72
Nation: United States of America
Period: WWII
Type: Ships
Category Kit

World War II USN LCM mechanized landing craft kit in 1/72 scale - Trumpeter model. LCM is short for "Landing Craft Mechanized," which in Italian means "Mechanized Landing Craft." During World War II, LCM boats were used by Allied forces to transport troops, vehicles and equipment to and from the beaches during amphibious landing operations. Here are some key features and information about World War II LCM boats: Type: LCMs were part of a family of landing craft used primarily by the U.S. Army and the British Royal Navy. They were used in amphibious landings to transport men and vehicles from the transport ship to the beaches. Characteristics: LCMs were relatively large and rugged vessels designed to carry mechanized vehicles and troops. They were equipped with landing ramps to allow rapid unloading of troops and vehicles. Cargo Capacity: LCMs were capable of carrying light tanks, light armored vehicles, guns, trucks, and a considerable number of troops. The cargo capacity and design facilitated the rapid and coordinated landing of forces during amphibious operations. Participation in Key Operations: LCMs were extensively employed during major amphibious operations of World War II, such as the Normandy landings (Operation Overlord), the Sicily landings (Operation Husky), and the Italian landings. Post-War Employment: After World War II, many LCM boats were retained or converted for civilian use. Some were used for salvage operations, river transport, and other maritime activities. LCM boats played a crucial role in amphibious operations, enabling Allied forces to quickly project men and vehicles onto the enemy coast during key clashes of World War II.

Type: Submarine
Category Kit

1/72 CB Class Midget submarineThe CB Class Midget Submarine was a type of pocket submarine (or nano submarine) used by the U.S. Navy during World War II. These submarines were also known as the "Coastal Battleground" (CB) or "Coastal Boat" (CB) Class.These submarines were designed to operate in shallow coastal and inshore waters, providing patrol and sabotage capabilities. Their main purpose was to approach enemy targets, such as enemy ships or port installations, stealthily and silently to attack them with explosive charges.CB Class Midget Submarines were small and compact, with a length of about 21 meters and a crew of only 5-6 sailors. They were powered by electric batteries, which made them quiet but limited their submarine operational range.These submarines were often carried and launched from larger submarines or surface ships. Once close to the target, CB Class Midget Submarines used their armament to attack enemy ships or ports. In some cases, submarines were used for reconnaissance and sabotage operations, placing mines or explosive pipelines against ships or port infrastructure.Their use was rather limited and they were not employed in large numbers, but CB Class Midget Submarines proved their effectiveness in some operations during World War II. After the war, they were gradually replaced by other types of more advanced pocket submarines.

Category Kit

1/700 Soviet Destroyer Taszkient 1942The Tashkent class (officially known as Project 20 ) consisted of a single head destroyer , built in Italy for the Soviet Navy just before World War II . Three others were ordered by the Soviet Union's shipyards, but were cancelled before being fixed because they were too difficult to build with existing technology in Soviet shipyards. Completed in 1939, Tashkent participated in the sieges of Odessa and Sevastopol in 1941-1942, during which she ferried reinforcements and supplies to those cities, evacuated wounded and refugees, and provided naval gun support for Soviet troops. The ship was severely damaged twice by Axis bombers before being sunk in port in mid-1942. Her wreck resurfaced in 1944, but was too badly damaged to be repaired and was scrapped after the war.

1/700 Missile Destroyer USS Zumwalt DDG-1000 Full HullThe Zumwalt class is a class of destroyer of the United States Navy, the outfitting of which began with the first example in October 2008 at Bath Iron Works shipyards.The class leader was dedicated to Admiral Elmo Zumwalt, an important figure in the US Navy of the 1960s and 1970s as chief of naval operations and author of a major reform of naval personnel.Initially planned in 32 examples, these due to implementation problems and cost escalation were reduced first to 10 then to 3, and the program is considered at risk by the U.S. Navy under the 2010 Nunn-McCurdy amendment on defense cost cuts. The project contemplates a highly pushed stealth hull design, state-of-the-art electronics, two vertical multiarm launchers totaling 256 missiles, two 155mm automatic guns and two 57mm CIWS systems for point defense. The design also envisions the installation of induction cannons (railguns) when this technology matures.For the first time since the Russo-Japanese War of 1905, a naval ship resumes its form with a spur prow, this time not as an offensive weapon but to decrease radar signatures and "open" waves rather than ride them.

IJN Gunboat Silk / Hira

Nation: Japan
Period: WWI
Scale: 1/700
Type: Ships
Category Kit

1/700 Water Line Series No. 546 IJN Gunboat Seta / HiraSet was a Japanese gunboat of the interwar period and World War II. The keel of this ship was laid in April 1922 and the launching took place in June of the same year. The unit probably entered service in 1923. The total length of the ship at the time of launching was 54.9 meters and a width of 8.2 meters. The ship's displacement was about 250 tons and the maximum speed did not exceed 15 knots. The deck armament - at the time of launching - consisted of two 80-mm cannons and six 7.7-mm machine guns.Seta was the flagship of the eponymous class of ships, with a total of four gunboats. This class of gunboats was built as part of the Japanese fleet expansion program approved in 1920 and was an almost exact copy of the gunboat Toba, with almost identical size, shipboard armament and external appearance. It was also assumed that the Set gunboats would operate mainly on the rivers and coastal areas of China and Japan. Set's gunboat, from the 1920s, operated in the waters and basins originally established. She also took part in the Japanese-Chinese War of 1937-1945. The gunboat sank as a result of the November 1944 bombardment in Shanghai Harbor. However, the wreckage of the ship was raised from the bottom and, after necessary repairs, she first entered service in the Republic of China Fleet and from 1949 (under the name Min Jiang) served in the PRC Fleet.

Nation: Japan
Period: WWI
Scale: 1/700
Type: Ships
Category Kit

1/700 Water Line Series No. 547 IJN Gunboat Katata / HozuKatata was a Japanese river gunboat under which the keel was laid in April 1922, launched in July 1922, and commissioned by the Imperial Japanese Navy in October 1923. The ship's length at the time of launching was 56.1 m, width 8.23 m, and displacement about 340 tons. The Katata gunboat's maximum speed was 16 knots. The main armament at the time of launching was 2 80 mm cannons and 6 7.7 mm machine guns. In 1940 and 1943, the 7.7 mm machine guns were replaced by 13.2 mm machine guns and finally by 25 mm anti-aircraft guns.Katata was the second tallest gunboat in Set. Ships of this type (4 ships in total) were created as specialized units intended for inland navigation. From the beginning it was also assumed that they would have a relatively shallow draft and displacement, while maintaining a fairly strong armament on board - for this class of ships. Of course, this effectively made navigation in open waters impossible, and the seaworthiness of Set's gunboats was low. However, they were suitable for the role for which they were intended. The gunboat Katata was built at the Harima shipyard in the city of Aioi, and later transported in sections to Shanghai and assembled there. The ship sailed on the Yangtze for most of the 1920s. She also took an active part in the Japanese-Chinese War (1937-1945). In December 1944 it was badly damaged by an American air raid, and in April 1945 the gunboat Katata was sunk.

Scale: 1/350
Type: Ships
Category Kit

1/350 Cutty SarkThe Cutty Sark is a Scottish clipper with a tonnage of 963 tons, launched on November 22, 1869 at Scott & Linton Shipyards in Dumbarton, Scotland. She sailed the Indies route for the tea and wool trade.She owes her name ("Cutty Sark" means "smock, petticoat" in the Scottish language) to the figurehead that adorns her prow and depicts the semi-dressed witch Nannie, a character from the poem Tam O'Shanter by Scottish poet Robert Burns.Clippers, especially those built in the second half of the 19th century, were perhaps the most beautiful ships ever built and represented the pinnacle of maritime engineering in the "golden age of sails." The best known of them is undoubtedly "Cutty Sark." This sailing ship was built in 1869 at the special request of the famous Scottish shipowner, Captain John Willis, at the Clyde shipyard. The premise of the project was to build a ship capable of defeating the then fastest clipper "Thermopylae," launched only a year earlier. The latest technology and materials of the highest quality were used to achieve the goal. Paradoxically, it was the cost of materials and highly skilled labor that drove the original contractor out of business and the construction had to be completed by another nearby shipyard. When the operation was finally successfully completed, it resulted in the fastest ship at the time, which reached a speed of more than 17 knots thanks to its huge sail area. Of course, such an exaggerated performance was not only intended for propaganda purposes, but also to be used in practice. Cutty Sark's task was to transport tea from China to Britain. Time played an important role here because the faster the fresh crop was delivered to the London market, the higher the price. Each year the voyage from China was a real race and at the same time a torment for the crew, urged mercilessly by the captain, who, hoping to reward money and prestige, tried once again to break the speed record. The good times for clippers ended at the end of the 19th century, when they could no longer cope with competition from modern steam ships. The Cutty Sark met the fate of many other tall ships. In 1895 she was sold to a Portuguese company, where she served for many years as a tramp, and then as a barge without sails. In June 1922, a retired sea dog, Captain Dowman, bought the dilapidated ship and towed it to England. There, after many years of work, the Cutty Sark was restored to her former glory, mainly by installing new sails, although conforming to the originals, and in 1938 the Thames Nautical Training College in Greenhithe was presented with her as a training ship. In 1952 an association was founded to work for the Cutty Sark, and it was on its initiative that five years later the legendary sailing ship finally ended her colorful career and anchored permanently at Greenwich Pier. Technical data: Displacement: 2,100 t, length: 85.1 m, breadth: 10.9 m, draft: 6 m, speed: up to 17.5 knots, crew: 28-35 people.
