• Sturmtiger 38cm Assault Mortar 1/48

Tamiya 1/48 scale model kit. 

Kicking Up a Sturm 

This rather rare WWII German AFV featured a fearsome 38cm rocket launcher mounted upon the proven Tiger I chassis, and was developed for use against heavily fortified enemy positions, against which it would fire 1.5m long, 350kg rocket-powered projectiles. In terms of survivability, too, the Sturmtiger's fighting compartment was well-equipped, with 15cm of frontal armor and 8cm on the sides. All told, a mere 18 examples were produced, between August and December 1944; they were deployed in occupied Poland, and even on German home soil as the conflict ground to its conclusion.

About the Model
  • This is a 1/48 scale plastic model assembly kit recreating the Sturmtiger. Length: 133mm, width: 78mm.
  • The powerful form of the vehicle is accurately captured using an intuitive parts breakdown.
  • Rifling detail has been molded into the barrel of the stubby main gun.
  • Fighting compartment armor plate parts breakdown was based upon the weld lines of the actual vehicle.
  • Main gun offers traverse, elevation and depression.
  • Assembly-type tracks feature 1-piece straight sections.
  • Comes with a full body figure depicting a soldier standing outside the vehicle.
  • Weights are included for installation in the hull, giving a realistically heavy feel.

The menacing form with chunky fighting compartment and stubby 38cm mortar is artfully captured.

The 38cm mortar features internal rifling details, and has optional separate parts depicting counterweight.

Also depicted is the fighting compartment-mounted crane for loading the massive 38cm projectiles.



Realistic assembly type depictions of the wide tracks utilize one-piece straight sections.

Make this kit into a mini-diorama using the included figure depicting a soldier on his feet.

Also going on sale separately is Item 12672, recreating Zimmerit anti magnetic mine surfaces.
