    Top 5 Discontinued or Out of Production COBI Sets in Stock!

    Hiya & Happy Wednesday!

    I was looking at our stock this week and noticed we have sets available which have been recently discontinued and also out of production sets, so I'd thought I give you an insight to the top 5 sets that are in stock but discontinued. Check them out below.

    Best wishes

    This Panzer VIII Maus is a part of the WORLD OF TANKS collection, it features 890 bricks and is fully pad printed so not more tricky stickers!

    The Panzerkampfwagen VIII Maus ("Mouse") was a German super heavy tank completed in late 1944. It is the heaviest fully enclosed armoured fighting vehicle ever built. Five were ordered, but only two hulls and one turret were completed before the testing grounds were captured by the advancing Soviet forces.

    The principal problem in the design of the Maus was developing an engine and transmission powerful enough to propel the tank, yet small enough to fit inside it.
    The Maus was intended to punch holes through enemy defences in the manner of an immense 'breakthrough tank', whilst taking almost no damage to any components.

    The Messerschmitt Bf 109 is from the HISTORICAL COLLECTION and is comprised of 278 bricks and 1 pilot.

    The Messerschmitt Bf 109 or 'Me 109' was a German fighter aircraft that was the backbone of the Luftwaffe's fighter force in World War II. It was first flown in anger during the Spanish Civil War (1939) and was still in service at the end of the War.

    Constant development meant the Bf 109 remained competitive with the latest Allied fighter aircraft until the end of the war. A total of 33,984 Bf 109s were produced between 1936 and 1945.

    "In summary, another fine model from Cobi, and it’s great to have a different variant to add to the collection. Like some of the other newer Cobi aircraft (the Huey springs to mind) this one looks far better in reality than it does in photographs, and I’m very pleased with it." ~ Mark C.

    Jagdpanzer E-100 is another set that is part of the WORLD OF TANKS collection, with 950 brick this is a large tank set.

    The 'E-Series' of tank designs were an attempt by Germany to produce standardised tank designs in different weight classes (E-10, E-25, E-50, E-75 and E-100) which would be simpler, cheaper to produce and more efficient than their predecessors and from which specialised variants could be developed.

    The E-100 would have replaced the Jagdpanzer 38T. However, none of these proposed vehicles were ever produced, in most cases design was the first and final stage of their development.

    "I have received this set for Christmas and it is amazing. Looks very accurate to the in-game version, and is very functional. Would definitely recommend to others." ~ Percy B.

    The AHS Crab set is part of the SMALL ARMY collection and is a medium sized build with 700 bricks.

    Ultra-modern (production began 2016) Polish self-propelled tracked howitzer. This vehicle combines a South Korean K9 chassis and a British AS-90M Braveheart turret and the main armament is a NATO-compatible 155mm gun. 120 will be manufactured for the Polish armed forces by 2024.

    "Happy love these models" ~ Derek Y.

    Another set that is part of the HISTORICAL COLLECTION is the Supermarine Spitfire MK IX Desert Airstrip set, this build not only includes the plane but also 2 figures and a maintenance station.

    In the early months of 1942, with the clear superiority of the Focke Wulf Fw 190 over the Spitfire VB, there was much pressure to get Spitfires into production using the new two-stage supercharged Merlin 61 engine.

    The performance of the Spitfire IX was outstandingly better than the Spitfire V especially at heights above 20,000 feet. On the level the Spitfire is considerably faster and climb is exceptionally good.

    "My Grandson absolutely loved it." ~ Alan B.
