Guns, Missiles and Trailers
Entering service in 1938, this 40mm anti-tank gun was, for its time, one of the best guns of its type available, and with the BEF it proved its worth. Large numbers were left behind following Dunkirk and the Germans used them as the 4cm PaK192(e) for costal defence. As better guns were not yet ready, the 2pdr. was retained in production and was widely used in N. Africa including on Portees. Withdrawn in mid-1942 after the arrival of the 6pdr., they were given over to the infantry but were still retained as anti-tank guns in the Far East as they were quite adequate to deal with Japanese armour.
Our kit comes with optional parts to allow the gun either to be towed or fired from its tripod.
This Canadian built 9kw generator was used by both British and Canadian forces in Italy and NW Europe and was towed by various workshop and GS trucks. A 22kw version is also available.. Please see Related Products below for details..
Entering service in early 1942 in North Africa, this superb anti-tank gun was to see service on all fronts with some supplied to the Soviets and a US built version (M1 57mm). Our model is of the later long barrelled L/50 gun with Muzzle Brake which saw wide service in NW Europe. Both the earlier Mk.II version with shorter L/43 Barrel that saw service in North Africa and the Airborne version are also available.Out of stock
This model can either be built as the 25pdr Field Gun or the 17pdr Anti-Tank Gun "Pheasant" The Pheasant was the expedient combination of the 25pdr. Carriage and the newly developed 17pdr. Gun. Rushed into service in late '42 to combat the Tiger in Tunisia, they first saw action at Medenine in March '43 and proved very successful, later seeing service in Sicily and in Italy.
The No.27 Limber is also available separately. A set crew for this gun is also available. (See Related Products below).Out of stock
This prolific weapon was produced from January 1938 until mid 1945 with a production rate of 228 per month...
This represents the larger 22kw version of the Canadian built generators that were used on all fronts.
One hundred of the famous 40mm Bofors M36 gun were bought by Britain from Sweden in 1937 and in 1938 more were procured of the improved Polish version. It was the Polish version, that following the obtaining of the production license, that was developed and used by Britain throughout WWII and later. The Americans also produced the Bofors as the 40mm Gun M1, supplying them in turn, under Lend-Lease, to the Soviet Union. Germany also produced them (in Norway) as the 4cm Flak28 (Bofors). This weapon saw action on every front with every major combatant throughout WWII. Our model comes complete with optional blast shield as they were sometimes retrofitted later in the war. Note however that the optional Brass Gun Sight is not supplied with the kit but is available separately - se Related Products below.Out of stock

It was the Polish version of the Swedish Bofors 40mm Gun that was developed and used by Britain as the Mk.I. Further development led to the simplified chassis of the Mk.II (UK154) and finally this version the Mk.IIA (Canadian built)/Mk.III (British built) which would remain in service until the 1960's.
The Ordnance Quick-Firing 17Pdr. was a 76.2mm (3 inch) anti-tank gun. It was the most effective Allied anti-tank gun of the war. Used with the APDS shot it was capable of defeating all but the thickest armour on German tanks. It was fitted to several British tanks including A30 Challenger and the Sherman Firefly.
Even before the 6Pdr. had entered service, the British predicted that a bigger calibre gun would be required given the increasing armour of German tanks. Design of this bigger replacement was started in 1940 and was complete by the end of 1941. With the appearance of Tiger in Tunisia however, the first 100 prototype 17-pdr anti-tank guns were sent to counter this new threat. So great was the rush that they were sent before the carriage had been developed and the guns had to be mounted in the carriages of 25Pdr. Known as 17/25pdr." Pheasant", they first saw action in February 1943 with the fully developed 17Pdr. entering service in 1943 and first seeing action in the Italian Campaign.
A 17pdr. Ammunition Set is available separately.
This kit represents the earlier Mk.II version of the 6Pdr. Anti-Tank Gun with the shorter L/43 Barrel as used in Tunisia, Italy and in NW Europe.
This is the Airborne version of the 6pdr. anti-tank gun. It was modified by reducing the carriage to fit the 4’6” width of the Horsa glider and had the trail legs hinged in the middle to further accommodate transit. Further changes included relocation of the Elevation Wheel and reducing sides of the lower shield. They would be used by the British in airborne actions in Normandy, Arnhem and in the Rhine Crossing. The US Airborne Command had rejected their British copy of the 6pdr., the 57 mm M1 as unfit for air landing by glider due to weight and resultantly adopted the British Airborne version instead. The 82nd and 101st were so equipped for the Normandy airdrops and referred to them as simply 57mm guns. The US Paratroops used them against German armour near St Mere Eglise and Carentan, however few tanks were encountered and they were mostly used for support.
