Scale Model German WWII P.1000 Ratte Scharnhorst 1945 UA72303 Modelcollect 1:72
The Landkreuzer P. 100 "Ratte" (Land Cruiser P. 1000 Rat) was a design for a super-heavy tank to be used by Nazi Germany during World War II, proposed by Krupp director Edward Grotte in June 1942, who had already named it "Landkreuzer". Submitted drawings of the tank were OKH Auftrag Nr. 30404 and E-30404/1, which were submitted in December 1942. The tank was to be 1,000 metric tons, much heavier than the Panzer VIII "Maus", the heaviest tank ever built (with a weight of 188 tons). The project gained the approval of Adolf Hitler, who had expressed interest in developing the tank, but was cancelled by Armaments Minister Albert Speer in early 1943.
This kit is in 1/72 scale and, when completed, will measure approximately 54 cm long, 19 cm wide and 15 cm high. The kit includes a pivoting turret and the gun can be moved up and down. Decals and photo-etched parts are included.
