Description

This is a resin-cast military vehicle model kit.

Here's an unusual kit for you heavy-armor fans! The uniquely designed Tsar tank was developed in Imperial Russia during World War I. It did not have crawler tracks as most tanks today do, but was instead a giant tricycle, with two front wheels that were nine meters in diameter, with smaller rear wheels for steering. The steel body was eight meters in height, and equipped with four turrets: one each on the top and bottom, and one each on the left and right sides. The giant wheels were designed to get over obstacles, but testing conducted in 1915 proved that if one wheel were damaged or distorted, it would be unable to travel straight. It also had a habit of sinking into soft ground due to its weight, and ditches were also a problem for the rear wheels. As such, it was unsuitable for use on uneven terrain, and was eventually scrapped.
