Karl-Gerät 040/041 3D Drawings
New project for the month of May… Something not for the average wargamer but still could be used as an objective! „Karl-Gerät“ (040/041), also known as Mörser Karl, was a WW2 German self-propelled siege mortar (Mörser) designed and built by Rheinmetall. Its heaviest munition was a 60cm (24″) diameter, 2,170kg shell, and the range for its lightest shell of 1,250kg was just over 10km (6.2mi). Each gun had to be accompanied by a crane, a two-piece heavy transport set of rail cars, and several modified tanks to carry shells. This will be a LIMITED EDITION resin & pewter kit. The model vehicle itself (in firing mode) is about 20cm(L) x 5.7cm(W) x 7.9cm(H). No price info yet as it is still in 3D drawings. Two variants can be built: Gerät 040 (original model) armed with a short 600mm (24″) calibre barrel; Gerät 041 (later model) armed with a long (L/11.55) 540mm (21″) calibre barrel. We might add a Munitionsschlepper to the project if time permits.
