And to start things off, how about images of a kit you can't buy since it was decided not to build/offer it (is this a whiff of a whiff model?): the Rakentrager WOTAN with three Rheinbotte missiles:

There are some awesome kits and builds here.
Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

OK, not that effective, then.

Doesn't look like it'd have been that difficult to turn them into something moderately useful, though, if you gave them a decent "shotgun" warhead instead of the parachute mine.

I was thinking the same thing?  I could see either fairly large shot or flechettes for that purpose.  Of course, on land the flechette round could have other purposes.

Given a proper warhead, I suppose the installation on a Churchill chassis might have been useful against fortifications. Think Sturmpanzer IV/Sturmtiger, but with more ready-to-fire rounds/a much higher rate of fire. Bunker-buster on a landing beach? Or perhaps fire support in a built-up area?
