Landkreuzer P. 1500 Monster
Biggest "papertank" contemplated by the germans during WWII.
About this creation
Lots of interessting information goes with this vehicle, but I will spare you the hsitory-lesson. However I feel that at least a minimum of data is absolutly needed to understand what we are talking about here;

Not really a tank, but a self-propelled artillery gun.
This monster would have weighed around 1500 tonnes. (Tiger II weighed 70t and the Maus almost 200t)
P. 1500 was to be a mobile platform for the 800mm "Schwere Gustaf"/"Dora" type super-heavy siege cannons. (which existed as railway guns)
The "Landkreuzer" name indeed means a kind of "land-ship".
MOC is around scale 1:120, and instead of the planned additional 2 x 150mm howitzers, I equipped it with a couple of flak-zwillings. Apart from this, I have tried to follow the historical data as close as possible.

Here are some general views of the monster packed/on the move;




Once within reach of the target, the unpacking begins. (The MOC is fully posable);



The small tanker truck in the next photo is supposed to represent an Opel Blitz, and the small car a Kubelwagen. (So as to get an idea of the IMMENSE size of the vehicle)
Projectiles would weigh between 3.5t (HE) to 7t (AP), and could be shot over a distance of almost 40km.



The support and logistics necessary would have been H-U-G-E, with probably 2000-4000 men needed for operation, maintenance and close- and areal defence...



Next some more detail and overview photos;




Alas, the project was finally cancelled in 1943.

Finally a shot showing some of the interior and methods of construction;

This is an excellent build! the size and details are very accurate! And if I remember right the 800 millimeter cannon would have costed the equivalent of $1200 to fire ONE TIME! this may have packed a heavy punch against our boys, but it would have done a lot more damage to the Germans` wallets!

congratulation! i know about most ww2 war equipment, and gustav ,reactor prototype planes,ect,but,i did nt know about this , about the history lesson,i ll take it anytime! i love these old documentaries,i find them,fascinating,your scale reference,is brilliant,if a little loose,the link provided by commander blimps was indispensable for reference,as the picture scale reference is just perfect! these armament prototypes were wonderful on plan,a work of mechanical art! it s cool to see them in action,but,without the destruction or suffering,so simulations are what i like best! your creation is supernice! it might not be a perfectly exact replica, but it looks real good! good work!

This thing is awesome in so many ways and you can bring on the history anytime! I understand that this vehicle design was inspiration for the Bolo series of military sci-fi stories.

This is one of the most awesome, creative and imaginative builds i have seen so far. It's very accurate, and your idea with the soldiers on the side is quite funny. Btw, I think it was even BIGGER than you picture it with the Minis/micros on the side. Here's a link if you want a good scale picture: http://www.provehicles.co.uk/images/biggest_tanks/tank_compare_r.jpg I'm not trying to give you bad critics in any way, so don't missunderstand that. Anyway, I can't find any more words for it than awesome, spectacular, genious, creative (etc. etc.) Super cool super tank. :)

Even in mini-scale this thing looks like the sluggish, vulnerable, heavily armed behemoth it would have been in real life. Once again, you demonstrate your undoubted talent. And adding the Opel Blitz and the Kübelwagen for scale is a great idea!

Quoting Kriss Olympis ...
Thanks Kriss for a positive and thorough review ;-) -No I didnt know this was in any top list. -But that explains why it is getting so much attention. The micro-figs are pretty close to size. Maybe they are a plate too high, but then the trucks would be too big. The usual compromizes, you know...

Holy Crap! Sweet, good to finally see someone from historic millitary has made the MOC headlines ( your in "Popular This Week" in case you didn't know ), this is absolutely amazing, I like how its fully posable, and the little dudes, are those correctly sized? I also like how you took the liberty of changing the secondary armerment, its not that much of a strecth of imagination to think that the Germans might have done this anyway, considering the Allied ari superiority at the end of the war. Not much on an interior, but youve already delivered three times over on this one, 5/5! =)

Quoting Peter The Terrible Absolutely amazing! I saw this on Wiki about a month ago and I was amazed. I'm very pleased that someone decided to make one, though the Monster would have taken a crew of 100+, not 2000-4000. Regardless, that's an amazing creation and incredibly acurate. 10/10.
Thanks. The 100+ crew is ONLY for operating the machine. Apart form that many more are needed for logistics, maintenance and close defense! In total thousands of people would be tied up in keeping this beast working...

Quoting Braeden G Nice but it didn't have any twin turrets it only had the main gun two 15cm howitzers and a large amount of 15mm mgs
Actually... It didnt have anything at all, given that it was never constructed. I wish you would have read the text in my presentation before commenting on the howitzers, though...
