Trumpeter 1:35 - German Neubaufahrzeug Rheinmetall Tank - Plastic model kit #05528

Development of the Neubaufahrzeug ("New construction vehicle") started in 1933. It was the first attempt to create a heavy multi-turreted tank for the Wehrmacht. In 1926 the British built their version of a heavy multi-turreted tank, the Vickers A1E1 Independent, and the Germans bought its technical details from a British officer who acted as a spy. Both Rheinmetall and Krupp were designing a German heavy tank. Their designs turned out to be very similar, the main difference being the weapons placement. Both tanks had a main turret armed with a 75mm KwK L/24 main gun and secondary 37mm KwK L/45. Rheinmetall's design was called PzKpfw NbFz V, and Krupp's design was designated PzKpfw NbFz VI. However, both designs proved to be too complex, unreliable and slow to serve as heavy tanks. Only five tanks were produced and they were primarily used for propaganda purposes. Three out of five Neubaufahrzeug's took part in the Battle of Norway in 1940, but none of them survived the war.
