“This is a combination of HobbyBoss' Krupp K5(E) ‘Leopold’ railway gun and BR-52 ‘Kriegslokomotive’ in 1/72 scale,” Andrew writes. “The K5(E) was a Christmas gift from my parents two years ago, and I bought the locomotive with my own money.” Andrew used Tamiya, Humbrol, and Testors Model Master paints and weathered with artist's oils and pigments. “The whole project took 14 months, but it was worth every minute.” Andrew says this is his last big project for a while. After graduating from high school he reported to West Point in June 2011 for basic training before joining the Class of 2015.
