  • SdKfz 251/1 Ausf. D Stuka zu Fuss (28mm)

    The Wurfrahmen 40 (“launch frame 40”) was a German WW2 multiple rocket launcher. When used on the SdKfz 251 halftrack, a frame with six base plates was used, with three on each side. It formed a more mobile and protected artillery piece than the towed Nebelwerfer. It was nicknamed Stuka zu Fuss (“Stuka on Foot” or “Walking Stuka”) and Heulende Kuh (“Bellowing Cow”).

    Introduced in late 1940, the weapon system was a framework with adjustable base plates fitted over and alongside a vehicle which could hold 300 mm high explosive (HE) rockets; 280 mm HE and 320 mm incendiary rockets were also used, the rockets being fired while in their loading crates. Although spin stabilized, the rockets were not as accurate as conventional artillery and reloading was time consuming due to the rocket’s weight. Rockets were ripple-fired in large numbers where feasible to quickly saturate a target. The Wurfrahmen 40 was successful in service as a support weapon for the mobile Panzer formations, particularly in urban areas.

    This highly detail Rubicon Models plastic kit depicts a SdKfz 251 Ausf D with a Wurfrahmen 40 multiple rocket launcher. The Wurfrahmen 40 frame is detachable enabling you to revert the vehicle into a standard SdKfz 251/1D personnel carrier.

  • Panther Ausf D and A Rubicon Models 28mm

    The German Panther tank was a compromise. It had the same engine as the Tiger I tank, it had better frontal hull armor , better gun penetration, was lighter and thus faster, and could traverse rough terrain better than the Tigers. The trade off was weaker side armor, even less than the T-34 it was suppose to counter. The Panther proved to be deadly in open country and long range engagements, but vulnerable in close-quarters combat. Also, the 75 mm gun fired a smaller shell than the Tiger's 88 mm gun, providing less high explosive firepower against infantry and penetration which decreased faster with distance.

    It was intended as a counter to the Soviet T-34, and as a replacement for the Panzer III and Panzer IV. While never replacing the latter, it served alongside it and the heavier Tiger tanks until the end of the war.

    This Rubicon model kit depicts two early versions of the Panther tank. About 3,000 were produced between January 1943 and June 1944. With this kit, you can assemble the Panther to become either an Ausf D or Ausf A variant with 2 cupola choices, and with or without side armour.

  • SdKfz 251 Ausf. D (3-in-1) 28mm

    The SdKfz 251 (Sonderkraftfahrzeug 251) half-track was an armored fighting vehicle designed and first built by the Hanomag Company during World War II. Used by the Wehrmacht, the SdKfz 251 was designed to transport the panzergrenadiers of the German mechanized infantry corps into battle. SdKfz 251s were the most widely produced German half-tracks of the war, with at least 15,252 vehicles and variants produced by various manufacturers, and were commonly referred to simply as “Hanomags” by both German and Allied soldiers.

    There were four main model modifications (Ausführung A through D), which formed the basis for at least 22 variants. The initial idea was for a vehicle that could be used to transport a single squad of panzergrenadiers to the battlefield protected from enemy small arms fire, and with some protection from artillery fire. In addition, the standard mounting of at least one MG34 or MG42 machine gun allowed the vehicle to provide support by fire for the infantry squad once they had disembarked in battle.

    Variants were produced for specialised purposes, including with anti-aircraft guns, light howitzers, anti-tank guns and mortars or even large unguided artillery rockets.

    From early 1943, the D model was developed with the purpose of halving the number of angled body plates, simplifying the design and thus speeding up the production. D models can be easily recognized by their single piece sloping rear (with flat doors).

    This highly detailed SdKfz 251 Ausf D is a 3-in-1 plastic kit. The kit can be built to represent one of:

    • SdKfz 251/ 7 (Assault Engineering vehicle)
    • SdKfz 251/8 (Ambulance)
    • SdKfz 251/10 (with 37mm PaK 36 anti-tank gun).

  • SdKfz 250/251 Expansion Set - SdKfz 251/22 Ausf D Rubicon 28mm

    SdKfz 250/251 Expansion Set - SdKfz 251/22 Ausf D Rubicon 28mm The SdKfz 251/22 (based on the SdKfz 251/1), simply known as the “Pakwagen” was one of the best AT support vehicles, fitted with a high velocity PaK 40 L/46 or L/48. These were heavily used as the operations turned into defensive actions, from Italy to Normandy and the Eastern front. The range of the gun allowed the vehicle to be relatively safe from well camouflaged and pre-arranged positions. However, the chassis was never designed to cope with the extra weight nor the blast shock and recoil, which triggered many mechanical breakdowns and excessive structural fatigue. Nevertheless, in Dec 44, Hitler gave this version top priority. The mount comprised two H shaped beams welded to the floor, on the middle of the rear compartment. The shield was modified with trimmed angles, and the platform was made of flat triangular plates holding in place the original gun cradle. The driver sat on the left, aiming with the standard PaK 40 optics. Traverse was 18° and 19° and elevation ranged from -3° to +22°. 22 rounds (HE and AP) were stored. Usually the crews carried extra rounds in loose containers, stored wherever possible. Production figures are elusive, perhaps 1,200 vehicles using Ausf D chassis.

  • Panzer III Rubicon Models 28mm

    Panzer III was the common name of a medium tank that was developed in the 1930s by Germany and was used extensively in World War II. It was intended to fight other armoured fighting vehicles and serve alongside the infantry-supporting Panzer IV; however, as the Germans faced the formidable T-34, stronger anti-tank guns were needed. Since the Panzer IV had a bigger turret ring, the role was reversed. The Panzer IV mounted the long barrelled 7.5 cm KwK 40 gun and engaged in tank-to-tank battles. The Panzer III became obsolete in this role and for most purposes was replaced by the Panzer IV. From 1942, the last version of Panzer III mounted the 7.5 cm KwK 37 L/24, better suited for infantry support. Production of the Panzer III ended in 1943.

    This Rubicon Models Box Set contains one 28mm plastic model that contains options to build a Panzer III in either J,M or N variants plus schurzen.

  • Panther Ausf G Rubicon Models 28mm

    Panther (designated as Sd.Kfz. 171) is the common name of a medium tank deployed by Nazi Germany in World War II from mid-1943 to the end of the European war in 1945. It was intended as a counter to the Soviet T-34, and as a replacement for the Panzer III and Panzer IV. While never replacing the latter, it served alongside it and the heavier Tiger tanks until the end of the war. The Panther’s excellent combination of firepower, mobility, and protection served as a benchmark for other nations’ late war and post-war tank designs, and it is regarded as one of the best tanks of World War II.

    The Panther tank was a compromise of various requirements. While having essentially the same engine as the Tiger I tank, it had better frontal armor (including the benefit of a sloped armor, increasing effective armor depth), better gun penetration, was lighter and thus faster, and could traverse rough terrain better than the Tigers. The tradeoff was weaker side armor. The Panther proved to be deadly in open country and long range engagements, but vulnerable in close-quarters combat. Over 6,000 Panther tanks were produced between January 1943 and April 1945.

    This model kit depicts the late version of the Panther tank. About 3,000 were produced between March 1944 and April 1945. With this kit, you can assemble a Panther Ausf G with optional air cooler and rear exhaust choices, with or without side armour.

  • Tiger I Ausf E Rubicon Models 28mm

    Tiger I (designated as Sd.Kfz. 181) is the common name of a German heavy tank developed in 1942 and used in World War II. The official German designation was Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger Ausf.E, often shortened to Tiger. It was an answer to the unexpectedly impressive Soviet armour encountered in the initial months of the Axis invasion of the Soviet Union, particularly the T-34 and the KV-1. The Tiger I gave the Wehrmacht its first tank mounting the 88mm gun in its first armoured fighting vehicle-dedicated version: the KwK 36. During the course of the war, the Tiger I saw combat on all German battlefronts. It was usually deployed in independent tank battalions, which proved to be quite formidable.

    While the Tiger I was feared by many of its opponents, it was over-engineered, using expensive materials and labour intensive production methods. Only 1,347 were built between August 1942 and August 1944. The Tiger was prone to certain types of track failures and immobilizations, and limited in range by its high fuel consumption. It was expensive to maintain, but generally mechanically reliable. It was also difficult to transport, and vulnerable to immobilization when mud, ice and snow froze between its overlapping and interleaved road wheels in winter weather conditions, often jamming them solid. In 1944, production was phased out in favour of the Tiger II.

    With this Rubicon model kit, you can build all three (early, mid, and late war) versions of the Tiger I tank. It comes with three turret tops, optional Feifel air cleaners, and two different sets of road wheels.

  • StuG III Ausf G (SdKfz 142/1)

    The StuG III was designed to fill an infantry close support combat role, early models were fitted with a low-velocity 75 mm StuK 37 L/24 gun to destroy soft-skin targets and fortifications. After the Germans encountered the Soviet KV-1 and T-34 tanks, the StuG III was first equipped with a high-velocity 75 mm StuK 40 L/43 main gun (Spring 1942) and in Autumn 1942 with the slightly longer 75 mm StuK 40 L/48 gun. These versions were known as the Sturmgeschütz 40 Ausführung F, Ausf. F/8 and Ausf. G.

    When the StuG IV entered production in late 1943 and early 1944, the “III” was added to the name to separate it from the Panzer IV-based assault guns. All previous and following models were thereafter known as Sturmgeschütz III.

    Beginning with the StuG III Ausf. G, a 7.92 mm MG34 could be mounted on a shield on top of the superstructure for added anti-infantry protection from December 1942. Some of the F/8 models were retrofitted with a shield as well. Many of the later StuG III Ausf. G models were equipped with an additional coaxial 7.92 mm MG34. By the end of the war, around 11,300 StuG IIIs and StuH 42s had been built.

    StuG III Ausf G (SdKfz 142/1) was produced between December 1942 and April 1945, around 8,423 were produced. The StuG III Ausf G is the final and by far the most common of the StuG series.

    Notable features of this plastic kit include:

    • Choice of Early / Mid / Late production
    • Option to assemble vehicle as a StuH 42 with 105mm Howitzer
    • Choice of original trapezoid-shape mantlet or the Topfblende pot mantlet (often called Saukopf “Pig’s head”) gun mantlet with or without coaxial mount

  • Rubicon 28mm Jagdpanzer 38(t) Hetzer

    The Jagdpanzer 38(t) (SdKfz 138/2), later known as Hetzer (“baiter”), was a WW2 German light tank destroyer based on a modified Czechoslovakian Panzer 38(t) chassis. The Jagdpanzer 38(t) was intended to be more cost-effective than the much more ambitious Jagdpanther and Jagdtiger designs of the same period. Using a proven chassis, it avoided the mechanical problems of the larger armoured vehicles. It was better armoured than the thinly armoured earlier Panzerjäger Marder and Nashorn with a sloped armour front plate of 60 mm sloped back at 60 degrees from the vertical (equivalent in protection to about 120 mm), carried a reasonably powerful 75mm gun, was mechanically reliable, small and easily concealed. It was also cheap to build.

    The Jagdpanzer 38(t) succeeded the open-top Marder III (based on the same chassis) in production from April 1944; about 2,584 were built until the end of the war. The Jagdpanzer 38(t) fit into the lighter category of German tank destroyers that began with the Panzerjager I, continued with the Marder series and ended with the Jagdpanzer 38(t). The 75 mm PaK 39 L/48 gun of the Jagdpanzer 38(t) was a modified version of the 75 mm StuK 40 L/48 used in the StuG III and StuG IV assault guns. With this gun the Jagdpanzer 38(t) was able to destroy nearly all Allied or Soviet tank types in service at long ranges (except heavy tanks) and its fully enclosed armour protection made it a safer vehicle to crew than the open-topped Marder II or Marder III series.

    The Jagdpanzer 38(t) was one of the most common late-war German tank destroyers. It was available in relatively large numbers and was generally mechanically reliable. Like some other late-war German SPGs, the Jagdpanzer 38(t) mounted a remote-control machine gun mount which could be fired from within the vehicle. The Flammpanzer 38(t) was a Jagdpanzer 38(t) modified with a Keobe flamethrower in place of the main gun. It was deployed on the Western Front, with first use during the Battle of the Bulge. Less than 50 units were produced.

    Variants were produced for specialized purposes, including with anti-aircraft guns, light howitzers, anti-tank guns and mortars or even large unguided artillery rockets.

    The C model, which started production in mid-1942, featured a simplified hexagonal-shaped forward armoured plate for the engine. Models A through C had rear doors that bulged out. The C model had a large production run, but was quite complex to build, involving many angled plates that gave reasonable protection from small arms fire.

  • SdKfz 250/1 Alte German Half Track SdKfz 253 Rubicon

    SdKfz 250/1 Alte German Half Track SdKfz 253 Rubicon was a light armoured halftrack, very similar in appearance to the larger Hanomag-designed SdKfz 251, and built by DEMAG, for use by Germany in World War II. Most variants were open-topped and had a single access door in the rear. The SdKfz 250 was adopted in 1939 to supplement the standard halftrack. Production delays meant that the first 250 did not appear until mid-1941.

    The vehicle was used in a wide variety of roles throughout World War II. The basic troop carrier version was used as an armoured personnel carrier for reconnaissance units, carrying scout sections. This basic variant usually mounted one or two MG34 machine guns. Later variants carried 20 mm, 37 mm, and even 75 mm guns to support the more lightly armed versions.

    The initial design (Alte, the “old version”) had an armoured body made of multi-faceted plates, which gave good protection against small arms fire, but made this design both expensive to manufacture and quite cramped. Production of this early version stopped in October 1943 with some 4,200 built, and a second version (Neu, or “new version”), greatly simplified to speed up manufacture, began replacing it. In both variants, the armour was useful only for stopping small-arms fire and small artillery fragments. Heavy machine gun fire, anti-tank gun fire, or almost any tank gun could penetrate the SdKfz 250 at long range.

    The SdKfz 253 variant was fully enclosed, and was used by artillery forward observers to accompany tank and mechanized infantry units.

  • German Motorcycle R75 with Sidecar (ETO) Rubicon

    German Motorcycle R75 with Sidecar (ETO) Rubicon The BMW R75 and its rival the Zundapp KS750 were both widely used by the Wehrmacht in Russia and North Africa, though after a period of evaluation it became clear that the Zundapp was the superior machine. In August 1942, Zundapp and BMW, on the urging of the Army, agreed upon standardisation of parts for both machines, with a view of eventually creating a Zundapp-BMW hybrid (designated the BW43), in which a BMW 286/1 side-car would be grafted onto a Zundapp KS750 motorcycle.

    Product Highlights:

  • PaK36 Anti-tank Gun with Crew Rubicon

    PaK36 Anti-tank Gun with Crew was a 3.7 cm calibre German anti-tank gun used during the WW2. It was the main anti-tank weapon of Wehrmacht infantry units until mid-1941. Design of a horse-drawn, 3.7 cm anti-tank gun (designated 3.7 cm PaK L/45) by Rheinmetall commenced in 1924 and the first guns were issued in 1928. By the early 1930s, it was apparent that horse-drawn artillery was obsolescent, and the gun was modified for motorized transport by substituting magnesium-alloy wheels and pneumatic tyres for the original spoked wooden wheels.

    Re-designated the 3.7 cm PaK 35/36, it began to replace the 3.7 cm PaK L/45 in 1934 and first appeared in combat in 1936 during the Spanish Civil War. It formed the basis for many other nations’ anti-tank guns during the first years of WW2. The KwK 36 L/45 was the same gun, but used as the main armament on several tanks, most notably the early models of the Panzer III. The Soviets used the PaK 36 carriage design for their 45mm M1937 AT gun.

    During the May 1940 Western Campaign, the PaK 36, being a relatively small-calibre weapon, was found to be inadequate against heavy Allied tanks. Still, the gun was effective against the most common light tanks of the era. In June 1941, during the initial phases of Operation Barbarossa, the PaK 36 could still penetrate the armour of the majority of Soviet AFVs at ranges up to 1000m from the front, with the notable exception of the T-28s and T-35s, which it could penetrate only at under 100m; the PaK 36 could not penetrate the relatively thick armour of the T-34s and KV-1s.

    By late 1941, the widespread introduction of the T-34 on the Eastern Front made the PaK 36 obsolete. The addition of tungsten-core shells (Pzgr 40) slightly improved the armour penetration of the PaK 36, enabling it to finally damage the T-34, but only via a direct shot to the rear or side armour from point-blank range. Despite its continued impotence against the T-34, it remained the standard anti-tank weapon for many units until 1942. The advantages of the PaK 36 were its; relative ease of handling and mobility (it could be brought into action very rapidly by as few as two men since it weighed only 432 kg); good quality optics/aiming devices; ease of concealment due to its small size; and high rate of fire. The PaK 36 began to be replaced by the new 5cm PaK 38 in mid-1941.

    As it was gradually replaced, many were removed from their carriages and added to SdKfz 251 halftracks for use as light anti-armour support. The PaK 36 also served with the armies of Italy, Finland, Hungary, and Slovakia. Although the PaK 36 quickly became ineffectual in the European and Russian theatres, in China the gun was still viable as an effective anti-tank gun. It could destroy the Japanese tanks, since their armour protection was quite weak. For example, during the Battle of Taierzhuang, Chinese PaK 36s destroyed a good number of Japanese tanks.

    In 1943, the introduction of the Stielgranate 41 shaped charge meant that the PaK 36 could now penetrate most armour, although the low velocity of the projectile limited its range. The PaK 36s, together with the new shaped charges, was issued to Fallschirmjäger units and other lightly equipped troops. The gun's low weight meant that it could be easily moved by hand, and this mobility made it ideal for their purpose.

    Product Highlights: BASE NOT INCLUDED - Includes 1 x standalone and 1 x vehicle-mounted PaK 36 - Includes both full & half shields plus mounting plates for all SdKfz 250/251 variants - Front lower armour plate in operating or transport mode - Movable trails & rotating gun - Includes Stielgranate 41 shaped charge - Includes shells and ammo boxes - 5 gun crew in early war uniform included
