TK2032 - Takom
Takom have commenced making German artillery with the big Skoda siege howitzers and to this list they've now added the Krupp 21cm Mörser. Although technically a howitzer, the Germans referred to it as a mortar (Mörser) and it entered service with the Imperial German Army in 1915, providing a replacement for earlier guns that were lacking recoil systems.
These could be devastating weapons having an effective range up to 10km and could fire 114kg (256lb) high explosive shells. They saw heavy use at Verdun and the Somme during 1916.
There are 4 light grey sprues of styrene with two small photo etch sheets There is also four poly-caps, a small decal sheet, the instruction manual and a nice fold-out painting guide.
This is one of Takom's 2-in-1 boxings and allows you to build either the early 10 version or the later 16, the principal difference being the longer barrel on the 16.
This model provides seven full colour, five-view painting schemes on a fold out pamphlet, three for the early 10 model and four for the later 16.
Glue and paint are required for this model. (Not included).
