The Mörser Karl was a huge piece of weaponry that weighed a hefty 124 tons. The weapon’s bulk meant it had to be transported around on a special two-piece set of railcars for long-distance travel. Using this transportation method, the whole mortar chassis was hung between two pedestal-mounted swiveling arms borne on five-axle bogies. Dragon’s 1/144 Mini Armor series brings the Mörser Karl and the railcars down to a wholly more manageable size in the latest kit release.
That means the accurate model self-propelled mortar comes with the two special railcars and, indeed, it is depicted slung between them. The kit is available in either a dark yellow or panzer gray plastic color, so this will ease the job of the modeler should they be seeking a shortcut. To complete this impressive miniature scene, we include a suitable length of railway track as a special bonus. Straight from the box, model-makers can create a stunning diorama with one of the heaviest German weapons of the war. This item proves that small-scale kits can most certainly ignite the modeler’s imagination!
