ICM-48231, 1/48th scale PAG-14 Concrete Airfield Plates (Modeling Madness kit review (http://modelingmadness.com/scott/misc/military/previews/icm/48231.htm))
ICM-72214, 1/72nd scale PAG-14 Concrete Airfield Plates (IPMS USA kit review (http://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/soviet-pag-14-airfield-plates))

I picked up both of these sets this weekend to see what they were like in my hand and to add yet more accessories to the stash.  What I found was a rather nicely done "plate" that is detailed on one side only and probably about half the thickness of a full plate.  To give some depth it might be necessary to glue a pair of them together (detail side facing out on both pieces).  I suggest this only if you are going to display the plates in a stack.  If you assemble the plates according to the instructions you will have thrity-two parts to assemble in any shape you wish restricted only by your imagination and display base.  The 1/72nd scale plates are attached to sprues with four plates to each sprue.  The 1/48th scale are all individual parts with no sprue.  Both kits are packaged in an inner bag but in the case of the 48th scale kit these inner bags were all ruptured due to the bulk and weight of the parts.  The 1/72nd scale bags were all intact.  The 1/48th scale kit comes in a very sturdy two piece cardboard box with a heavy cardboard bottom and a slightly lighter weight box top.  The 1/72nd scale kit is packaged in paper card stock weight one piece box with end openings and is not as sturdy as the 48th scale kit box.   

For my own projects, I wanted something to use as fill in the back of a cargo truck so the scale was not a pressing requirement for me.  The 1/72nd scale plates could work well with a 48th scale model and the 48th scale plates could also work well with a 1/35th or 1/32nd scale model and in that case they would no longer be PAG-14 concrete airfield plates but something altogether different and you could I suppose name them what ever you wanted.  The real PAG-14 concrete panels are L 6.0 m X W 2.0 m X H 14 cm and weigh 4200 kg.  The PAG-14 is one of several concrete plate types that are identified by PAG-XX.  The XX identifies the thickness of the plate which is offered in three versions as PAG-14 (14 cm), PAG-18 (18 cm), and PAG-20 (20 cm). 

Link for a pdf document titled "Soviet Prestressed Construction for Airfields" (http://www.airporttech.tc.faa.gov/NAPTF/att07/2007/Papers/P07049%20Sapozhnikov%26Rollings.pdf) that was presented for the 2007 FAA Worldwide Airport Technology Transfer Conference held in Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA, April 2007.  A couple of images in the document show the details of a concrete airfield panel similar to the PAG-14.

I have the 1/72nd scale modern soviet air base set, which includes a few of these plates. unfortunately not really enough to make the set worthwhile. This new set should hopefully remedy that somewhat.

Thirty two plates in each set for both scales.  That is a sufficient quantity to make a decent size parking spot for any aircraft in either scale.  Setting aside the scale and you have some nice raw materials for all kinds of things.

Thomas Hofmann has uploaded images of the kit contents and a brief description (German language) of the ICM 1:35th scale Mercedes L1500S LLG (Leichtes Löschgruppenfahrzeug) Light Firefighting Truck (kit number 35526) (http://www.modellversium.de/kit/artikel.php?id=9522) to modellversium.de.

Correct me if I am wrong on this, the L1500 truck body/chassis was the basis for many specialist vehicles for the German armed forces during WW2 so with minimal modification you could use this kit as a starting point for any number of variants.  Nice to see a civil use vehicle from that period in scale with most armor model subjects.  Looking at the way the kit parts are laid out it might not take much effort to come up with a nice little 4X4 AWD overlander hunting vehicle for a rich socialite on safari?  Make a command vehicle with several radios and seating for the headquarters staff officers and strap hangars that comprise most formations real or fictional. 
All you need is your imagination and the desire to not follow the instructions provided in the kit.  :)

Now there's a cool idea!  :) Needs a leopard or zebra hide paintjob, of course.  ;)

For those of interest, ICM has released a number of kits of cars and trucks. These are some great kits. I got one truck kit that has almost a whole second kit left over. All I need is a set of wheels,a complete cad and front fenders. Oh,and a motor.  I'm thinking you may see it in the not distant future. I also got one of the car kits recently,too. I can't decide whether to make it into a hotrod with a flame paint job or a restored civilian car. 1/32 scale hotrod kits are available from Linburg so modifying parts aren't going to be a problem.

It was operated by both the RAF and the RN (which the one on the box art shows).  I believe when they say "British Passenger Aircraft" here, the context is supposed to be British operated rather than British designed.

No kidding! A lot of users to choose from - modern Soviet to US Special Forces.

There's a very nice resin 1/35 Kamaz 4310, but it's around $160!

Nice to see a modern 1/35 Ford Model T; the RPM kit is buildable, but very simplified.

Sorry? Who? ???


On another note: It's good to see they promote their own 1/72 ATZ-5-4320 Fuel Bowser kit (ICM 72613) in the box art. :smiley: ;)

I hope the figures have better looking slouch hats, with the correct bash, than they do in the box art.

And photos of the real thing in WW1 - a Ford model T of the 1st Australian Light Car Patrol in 1917 outside the Aleppo Railway Station - I presume these are the photos the box art is based upon:

I am not overly concerned about the bash - they were quite variable up until the end of WWI.   It is the brim that concerns me.  Much too narrow and far too flat.   Most diggers bent their brims down to cover their eye.  At least they are not rolled/folded!

The bash actually looks pretty good but, yeah, the brims could do with being a bit wider - nothing a bit of Apoxy Sculpt can't fix, though. :smiley:

They look fairly close to those in the photos to me...maybe not in width but at least in flatness.

I just hope one can also mount a lewis gun at the rear and also give the driver his weapon:

More info on the ICM Models new B-26B-50 Invader “Korean War American Bomber” model kit in 1/48 scale.

Details appear to be limited, but the new item for September (48281) is reportedly created with “100% new molds” and is described as including highly detailed engines, armament and cockpit interior and marking options for three aircraft.
