Barcode: 0 89195 86357 7
Packaging: 20 pieces per master carton

Because the Dicker Max is such a rare breed, and since there are no survivors, an enormous amount of research was required by the project supervisor, Mr. Thomas Anderson. The 1/35 scale model replicates the original vehicle as accurately as possible using all available references. Since this is an open-topped vehicle, no effort was spared in fitting out the interior of the fighting compartment with full detail. To realize this kit, slide molds were frequently employed to give maximum detail and yet keep assembly for modelers as simple as possible.

About the "Dicker Max"
In terms of rarities, they don’t come much more unique than Germany’s Dicker Max. The catchy sounding name actually translates as “stout Max”, this being the name given to the prototypical tank destroyer mounting a long-barreled 10.5cm K18 gun. Only two vehicles were produced in 1941, both issued to the 521st Panzerjäger Detachment for a proposed attack on Gibraltar. When this never eventuated, they were transferred to the 3rd Panzer Division and saw combat on the Eastern Front in 1941.
