Hard-fighting hero of the Battle of the Bulge
Yours to own in superb die-cast metal for just £1.99
America's biggest, bloodiest battle of WWIIThe Battle of the Bulge was America’s bloodiest engagement of WWII, a gruelling mechanized slog of tank v tank. As the battle slowed to a stalemate, US commander General George S Patton ordered his M16 half-tracks to relieve the key town of Bastogne deep in the Ardennes Forest. It was a brilliant masterstroke that turned the tide in the Allies’ favour. By the end of 1944 the road to Berlin lay open.
So how could we not pay tribute to the fearsome M16, scourge of German infantry? This 1:43 scale die-cast metal model captures this vehicle in all its glory, from the 100% accurate markings to the intricate detailing on the Browning ‘Meatchopper’ machine guns.
It’s mounted on a sturdy plinth and housed in an eye-catching showcase box, and will arrive with an informative 6-page colour booklet, plus a FREE reproduction map detailing the epic Siege of Bastogne. Worth £14.99, this exclusive model is yours for just £1.99 (+FREE p&p). Plus, you’ll be placed on our priority delivery service: each month you will receive the latest, brand new ‘Military Vehicles of WWII’ replica. As an added bonus you’ll also receive exclusive FREE gifts with your next three deliveries. So, read on to find out how to take advantage of this unmissable offer…
Germany blasts back at StalingradWhen you hold the M16 in your hands and admire its incredible detail and impressive weight, you’ll definitely want to see the next exclusive replica – the fearsome SdKfz 251/1 Hanomag half-track. As German Panzers swept all before them on the Russian front in 1942, the deadly Hanomag ensured that any last vestiges of resistance were eliminated with ruthless efficiency.
Your model will arrive with accurate markings and livery from Hitler’s ill-fated attack on Stalingrad in late 1942, and features perfectly rendered MG42 machine guns in superb detail. It’s a wonderful collector’s piece and a must-have for any model enthusiast with a passion for military history.
And how much will you pay for this incredible piece of military memorabilia? Well, it’s worth £14.99, but thanks to your £5 Discount Voucher, it’s just £9.99 (+ £4.99 p&p), including model, display plinth, presentation box and 6-page colour booklet.

More awesome vehicles, more great giftsNo collection of WWII military vehicles is complete without that mainstay of British hardware, the Humber Armoured Car. And that’s what is coming next. This vehicle was one of the stars of the Normandy Landings in 1944. Outgunned by huge, lumbering German tanks, the lighter, more agile Humbers of the 3rd Infantry Division broke through the Nazi defences on Sword Beach and paved the way for the Liberation of Paris.
Your accurate die-cast metal model, along with its plinth, presentation box and 6-page colour booklet, is just £14.99 (+ £3.49 p&p) and will also arrive with a FREE military-style compass watch worth £12.99.
Then, the following month, we will be proud to send to you the legendary SdKfz 4/1 Panzerwerfer 42. This awesome half-track was fitted with a deadly barrage of rocket launchers that destroyed everything in their path. Your model is decorated in the markings of the 7th Werfer Brigade, which gave the Allies such a torrid time at the Battle of the Falaise Gap in 1944. Accept your model for just £14.99 (+ £3.49 p&p) and it will come to you with a FREE storage box to keep your growing collection of 6-page booklets safe.
The day warfare changed, forever!This incredible collection of die-cast metal models marks an era-defining moment in military history – the dawn of mechanized warfare. Gone were the bloody hand-to-hand infantry battles that punctuated WWI, not to mention the grindingly slow and negatively defensive tactic of trench warfare.
By 1939 armies had to be mobile and manoeuvrable, ready to shape events and not just react to them. And they had to have awesome amounts of firepower, too. Just look at the deadly M16 ‘Meatchopper’ or the terrifying SdKfz 4/1 Panzerwerfer 42. The world had never seen anything like these death-dealing juggernauts before and, with their arrival, the generals on both sides of the conflict had to rewrite the rules of warfare.
But this collection is not just an awe-inspiring evocation of those incredible military vehicles of yesteryear, it’s also a tribute to the men – on all sides – who clambered on board or inside these hot, hellish machines of devastation and risked all in the name of duty. Their heroism and sacrifice in earth-shattering engagements such as D-Day, Stalingrad and the Battle of the Bulge shall never be forgotten.
