P.1000 Ratte, "Scharnhorst", Germany WWII,1945, 1/72 Plastic Kit.
The Project 1000 was nicknamed "Ratte" and shows off the madness and insanety of Nazi German military developments. Historians still argue about what this project realy was a employment plan for engenieers and technicans, a propaganda information for Allied Intelligence or a real project.
The Ratte was even more insane than the stupid 100t "Maus" design. Nonetheless it is a interesting design study, which by its dimensions has to fail right from the beginning. Just by asking which bridge to cross with a machine like this, shows its uselessnes.
This kit is an new released limited edition version called "Scharnhorst 1945" and includes a three barrel Scharnhorst turret and mostly the same known parts.
Paint and glue not included!
For skilled modelers.
Contains small parts that can be swallowed, therefore not suitable for ages under 5 and over 90!
