HISTORY

The 12.8 cm Pak 44, (Panzerabwehrkanone) was a German heavy anti-tank gun used during World War II. It was designed as a result of experiences on the Eastern front in 1943. The German army had encountered the Russian 122 mm guns and had issued a requirement for a similar weapon. Development initially concentrated on a field gun known as the Kanone K 44. However once heavier Russian armour such as the IS-2 started to appear the design requirements were altered to include an anti-armour role.

The Pak 44 had short to medium-range performance similar to the 8.8 cm PaK 43, but the 12.8 cm PaK 44 better maintained its anti-tank performance over long to extreme-long ranges (2000-3000+ yards) while also doubling as an effective field gun when firing HE.

 

 

About the model


Trumpeter has released another artillery piece into their impressive and growing product line. This release represents one of the carriages that was adapted for moving this monster gun. The kit has all of the detail and features found in their previous releases including the ability to move the gun in azimuth as well as elevation.

Molded in tan styrene, this kit is presented on ten parts trees plus two separately packaged carriage parts and two frets of photo-etched parts. According to the specs, there are 322 parts in this kit and the assembled gun will measure over 12 inches long.

Among the features in this kit:

  - Highly detailed gun mount
  -  Very detailed photo-etched armor gun shield
  -  Carriage and limber wheels have separately molded hubs and tires for easy painting
  -  Carriage can be posed in transport or firing position
  -  In transport position, trail can be mounted to limber for towing
  -  Gun has separately molded one-piece muzzle brake to capture the unique vent holes
A small sheet of decals are provided for some distinctive marks on one of the two painting options.

 

This is another nice offering from Trumpeter and at the moment is the only one of this variant of the PaK 44. If you're a cannon cocker or like to model the variety of artillery pieces that have been produced, this will be another really detailed example for the contest table or your display shelf.

Assembly Guide

 

This is a very nice and detail kit from Trumpeter, but it is not easy to assemble and paint. It took many time to glue the tracks. But, as you saw the result, we did it well. Enjoy it.
