[About the actual vehicle]
-Leopold is one of the train guns Krupp K5 operated by the German army in World War II.
-25 trains of Krupp K5 were manufactured by Krupp from 1934 to 1945.
-The huge gun with a caliber of 28cm has a barrel length of 21.5m and is said to have a maximum range of 64km.
-The gun barrel is designed with train movement in mind, and is mounted on a gondola mounted between two bogies.
-It was deployed and operated in various locations using the European railway network.
-In February 1944, two cars, named Roberto and Leopold, were sent to Italy.
-And opened the gun gate to the Allied forces that started landing in Anzio, Italy.
-The huge shells crush the bridgehead built by the Allies.
-It surprised the Allied soldiers who were engaged in the operation.
-Later, in June 1944, these two cars were captured by the Allies and transported to the United States for repair.
-It was exhibited in the museum and was baked into the eyes of many people.

[About the model]
-The model is a plastic model assembly kit that reproduces Leopold on 1/144 scale, a huge train gun operated by the German army in World War II, one in Krupp K5.
-Compared with the 1/35 kit that was released in 2003 as a large model of the dragon and attracted much attention, the total length of the finished product is about 20cm this time.
-In addition, this kit also includes a rail and a base for the embankment, and after completion it can be displayed as a scene model.
-The mechanical finish and force unique to train guns is sufficient even at 1/144 scale.
