Review: Trumpeter 1/72 M113ACAV ‘Armored Car’

If the 'Armored Car' in the title of this review rustles your jimmies: I'm sorry. In what seems to be real Chinglish, Trumpeter probably mistook Armored Personel Carrier for 'Car'.

Review: Italeri 1/72 Hs-129 B-2

Italeri released all other motorcycles made by ESCI: The Harley Davidson Liberator and the BMW R75 with sidecar.
