Dragon has previously released an enormous 1/35 scale kit of ‘Leopold’, but its size probably precluded many from even beginning any attempt at building it. Dragon now has the ideal solution in the form of its Mini Armor collection, with a convenient 1/144 scale kit of the German 28cm K5(E). This scale is much more manageable, plus the finished product will not take up nearly as much shelf space! This kit has everything needed to form a stunning diorama straight from the box, for the set includes a section of railway track and embankment for the railway gun to sit on. Not only that, but Dragon also includes artillery crewmen to populate the gun and surrounding diorama. And the most amazing thing about this Mini Armor item? There are actually two different and complete K5(E) railway guns on offer: one is finished in plastic that is German panzer gray, and the other in dark yellow. That means modelers can choose the one best suited to the diorama they have in mind, either in an Italian theater or somewhere elsewhere in Europe. ‘Leopold’ lives again – it’s still big but it’s much more conveniently sized than before!
