Mid-February News!

February 20, 2023

Hobby Bunker Covert Intelligence


We hope you all enjoyed the Holiday Day. We were quit busy in the shop today.

Just a few quick notes as I prepare to head out the California this week. I run the show in Garden Grove. More details below. A couple weeks ago there was sad news that the Chicago Toy Soldier Show got canceled. The good news is the show will continue and we are taking it on! More news to follow next week.


Below we are still taking pre-orders for the new King and Country Tiger Tank and the 3 versions of the John Jenkins Hanomags.


We have recently got in a pile of Flames of War and terrain by Gale Force 9. The Vallejo Xpress paints were well received and we have more on the way.

The John Jenkins Designs  

German Sd.Kfz. 251 mittlerer Schützenpanzerwagen was an armored and fully tracked infantry fighting vehicle designed specifically to provide infantry the capability to match pace with German Panzers during armored operations. No other nation employed a similar vehicle during the war. It was purpose built to truly serve as a vehicle the Panzergrenadiers actually fought from. Its armored body could withstand small arms fire, protecting the mounted troops while they employed the two onboard machineguns along with the soldier's own personal small arms. The SPW was also fully tracked, meaning each of its tracks could be operated independently from the other track, just like a tank. This capability provided the SPW with excellent cross country mobility and allowed the Panzergrenadiers to accompany tanks even in the muddiest conditions. Lastly, the excellent capabilities of the SPW led to numerous specialized variants including versions mounting 7.5cm cannons and versions carrying small bridge sections for the Pioneer(specialized heavy assault troops with engineering skills).

King and Country
