Item DescriptionA new 1/6 scale weapon kit is hitting the streets. Item No. 75023 features a German mortar, a variant that is perhaps as not as well known as others that were employed in WWII. The kurzer 8cm Granatwerfer 42 (abbreviated to kz 8cm GrW 42) was developed as a lighter version of the standard 8cm GrW 34 mortar, and it was commonly referred to as Stummelwerfer (“stump-thrower”) by troops. The smaller size made it particularly useful for German paratroopers who needed a weapon that was easier to move around, but still offered more punch than the diminutive 5cm leGrW 36. It had a shorter barrel than the standard 8cm mortar (barrel length is 747mm), but it could still fire twice as far a round that weighed 3.5x the earlier 5cm mortar.
Dragon’s 1/6 scale kit is an exquisite recreation of this German mortar. It mimics a working mortar in that the bipod can be folded up and the legs adjusted to whatever angle the modeler wishes.
