Quoting DeTomaso Pantera Whoever designed this gun must have been mad. It's a crazy contraption. I have seen a dcumentary about the WWII arms race and this featured. It's an amazing build! I've been looking round your work and it's all spot on, you have a lot of dedication and attention to detail. I was hoping to find this http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_j1WCY4T_2yI /S-ZZ0elD42I/AAAAAKOI/bCBysYR4Qn4/s1600/scud_b_missile_system.jpg but could not find one. If you haven't already built one I'd love to see it in LEGO ;-)
Thanks for you very kind words!

Quoting Andre Castillo I know that that the Dora Should be larger than that. When will you release the Hind and The new version of the Abrams
First: All models in this world have their different kinds of scales, so i'm so i'm sorry if i only make SMALL projects =]] Second: This size suits with the size of the railways, if you can, just find a suitable railways that appropriated with the bigger dora (the dora gun you think it should be) Third:.....That's it

Quoting Matthew Sylvan I have made mod of your gun that would work better for that size of gun.
