VW Van, Junkers, Superhind

Hasegawa Hobby Kits 1/48 Scale Junkers Ju88A-10 (A-5 Trop) North Africa Limited Edition model kit captures all the excitement and fervor felt by the Axis forces during WWII.

This magnificent aircraft model kit captures in perfect detail the deadly dive-bombing dynamo taunted by the Axis forces as the ultimate dive-bombing, torpedo-bombing and night-fighting, multi-purpose aircraft designed and envisioned by Hitler’s Luftwaffe.

With its impressive 3,000-lb+-bomb payload, destructive firepower and lightning speed the Junkers Ju88A-10 was the terror of the skies over North Africa.

Especially designed to fly in the hot, humid and dusty skies over African battlefields the Junkers was the perfect aircraft for strategic strikes and with its moderate range capabilities could be counted on to support Rommel’s Afrikakorps.

The model (like all Hasegawa Hobby Kits) is a marvel of miniature design and implementation.  Parts detach easily from part trees with little or no flashing,

Precision tooling guarantees parts fit together snuggly and the easy-to-understand instructions make painting, decal application and assembly a breeze.

For a real feel for the WWII aircraft check out its broad wings, faceted upper and lower cockpit window assemblies, twin-three prop propellers and gun emplacements and careful attention to detail right down to the interior cockpit to the landing gear.

The 1/72 Scale Mi-24/35 Mk.III Superhind Limited Edition helicopter model kit perfectly duplicates, in miniature, the massive size and impressive weapon-laden serious Soviet smack-down fighter helicopter.

With its heavy armor and over-the-top firepower the Superhind is an upgraded aircraft with state-of-the-art weapons and avionics.

Manufactured in the 1970s the Superhind is still in use today!

The five-prop, killer copter comes with missile launchers, heavy artillery, a double-decker cockpit and enough sophisticated electronics and weapons to make the strongest and bravest opponent tuck their tails between their legs.

Imagine stepping into this massive beast with huge fuselage, weapons rippling all over its frame and its huge turbine engine spinning its powerful copter blades!

The model kit features new resin and metal parts.

Enough with war and fighting!  Time for a little fun!

The 1/24 Scale Volkswagen® Type 2 Delivery Van "Girls of Summer" Limited Edition model kit takes a peach to the beach.

This classic VW van comes in a bright color scheme with plenty of Anime and Manga inspired decals.

Get ready for some fun in the sun as you assemble this vintage van that includes the oversize VW front loo panel, a split front windshield, side mirrors, classic VW headlights, turn signals, bumpers and more!


Throw in some chrome trim, custom VW wheels and rims, an enclosed rear van section and its ready to load up suntan lotion, surfboards and beach bunnies for some serious fun.
