JTFM Enterprises / Die Waffenkammer Post New Releases

JTFM Enterprises / Die Waffenkammer post their new releases to their line of 1/56 scale tanks:

From their website:

SdKfz.123 Panzerspähwagen II Ausf.L “Luchs 5cm”

This model is amalgamation of two of our existing kits. The Luchs (hull) mastered by Mike Broadbent and the SdKfz.234/2 Puma (turret) mastered by Tony Ashcroft. Plus a few bits added in house.

The Luchs 5cm was intended to replace the original Luchs design, giving it more punch with the addition of a 5cm Kw.K L/60 gun mounted in an SdKfz.234/2 “Puma” turret. With the cancellation of the project the upgrade was never implemented. I am sure that with all the battlefield modifications made by the Germans that it could have been possible for the Luchs 5cm to have made it into service.

The model, even if it was never actually fielded, will add some extra firepower to your German Recce units and I’m sure that Weird World War II collectors will find a use for it.

The model will come with a command figure and our usual goodly assortment of stowage.

Next up:

Mastered by Ian Crouch for the old Chieftain Model range, these incarnations have undergone some extra detailing. I’ve added a new exhaust, rivets, bolt heads, the stowage bins have been replaced, the turret has been modified with more detail added, and I’ve made the track assemblies easier to attach.

The Char léger modèle 1935 R modifié 1939.

The R-35 series saw a long and dignified service with many nations during the Second World War. It’s service record even stretched into the early conflicts of the post WWII Middle East.

Whether you’re looking to have the French stymie the Germans in 1940, add something different to Italian or Romanian forces, have the Vichy engage U.S. Stuarts around Casablanca, fight partisans in German occupied territory, or add a twist to a post WWII Middle East scenario, I’m sure that these models will be a welcome addition to your collection.

The model comes with both command figures shown, the skid, and our usual assortment of stowage.
