Notes from our tech department:
This is a 1/35 Plastic German 38cm Assault Mortar for Sturmtiger.
This kit is recommended for age 10 and up.

A very rare variant of the much feared Tiger I heavy tank, was the
"Sturmtiger" assault weapon that mounted a gigantic 38cm caliber mortar on the
tank chassis. Development was initiated in August 1943 and was intended for
use against heavily fortified areas. The short barreled L/5.4, type RW61
mortar was originally developed by Rheinmetall-Borsig, for the German navy's
land-based protection against an enemy submarine attack. In order to withstand
the heavy recoil of up to 40 tons, the Tiger I's sturdy chassis was selected.
A decision was made to use only those chassis/hulls that were sent back from
the front, so that new production of the tank would not be affected. A
lighting compartment was formed of a box-like superstructure which was bolted
to the lower hull itself.
