    Yep that is the biggest 1/35 plastic model and most expensive, it was made in short runs some years ago, and by the way our John was thinking to purchase one day nad managed to get him back to our world ...

    BUT I have seen a worst nightmare an american scratchbuild this beast in a number of years for his 'GI Joe dolly' German figures, not mistaken larger then 1/16, and it came the size of a pick up van ...

    Crazy eh ... so are you planning to built it

    What where the Germans thinking of hitting with it?

    Tiny, I think it is the most fitting kit for you to build Smile Smile and by the way, welcome back as it has been a long time since we heard from you.

    Joseph it was really used during the Siege of Leningrad or Sebastapol [Russia]... I do not have referances at hand but DORA was capable of sending it's projectile from a great distance. This was not the only large cannon deployed by the Germans.

    these superguns were impressive in every aspect. I think there was also the idea of trying the bombard britain from the frech coast during WWII, was it? By todays standards I think they can be called the dinosaurs of field artillery.
