The incredibly massive German Dora railway gun of WWII featured a huge 80cm cannon, but was only used for a total of 13 days, with only 48 shells being fired. It took 25 trainloads of equipment, 2,000 men, and six weeks to assemble the monstrous gun at the firing location.

Even in 1/72 scale, this is a big kit! Measures in at a whopping 111cm long and 21cm wide when assembled. 974 parts! Includes decals and four frets of photo-etched metal detail parts. Also includes a bit of track with railbed to display it on. Does not include figures or support vehicles.
