Special Hobby have sent details of their latest WWI artillery piece - a German 25cm heavy mortar. This all resin kit will be available soon as part of the CMK range.
1/35 German WWI 25cm schwerer Minenwerfer / Heavy Mortar– All Resin kit
German heavy trench mortar of the Imperial German Army. It was designed before WWI by Rheinmetall and was in service until the end of the war. The mortar was transported using an attached pair of wheels and before fire, it was placed in a pit or trench protecting the mortar and its crew. Later in the war, a new model with a longer barrel was also developed and known as the n/A (neuer Art). The earlier short-barreled version was then redesignated as the a/A (or alter Art). These mortars were used during the siege of fortress Maubeuge in France or Liege and Namur in Belgium.

The 25cm schwerer Minenwerfer was much more effective in destroying enemy trenches and barbed wire obstacles than guns with much larger caliber even though it possessed shorter range.

Our model of this famous weapon, as well as other WW1 weapons in our RA range, was designed using 3D technology, the pattern parts came from a 3D printer and the resin components of the kit are cast in outstanding quality.


Price: 59.80 Euros

I would like these things better if you could get TONS of ammo for them to create a realistic fire base.

Agreed, even if it was offered separately. A dio would need literally dozens (hundred?) of sells to do it justice. Anything less is silly tokenism to tease buyers with. Accompanying figures would also be greatly appreciated.

Did the Germans still use this in WWll, maybe with pneumatic tires? Maybe at Sevsetapol, or other seiges?

I doubt that these were used on front-line service simply because they had better in mass-production. They were probably relegated to second-line forces or allies like the Rumanians, etc. Think of the Karl seige mortars, for example.
