Renwal/Revell Atomic Cannon Scale Question

an earlier post mentioned the damage this thing could do while being driven through the roads in Europe due it its size, etc.
could have some interesting diorama possibilities, crushing cars, not quite making the corner, etc.
Is this kit in true 1/32 scale? Am wondering if like so many kits of that day, the scale was often off a bit. Could 1/35 figures work with this thing?
see link below. Does it really build out to almost 3 feet? he's also asking over $400 for his kit - the repop is going for around $45.

Of course the one from oldmodelkits is in a Revell box. Not really that "nostalgic". Guess that's why the Renwal is $100 more.

Yes, the kit does build up to nearly three feet long in travel mode. The gun itself is about 21-22" long when emplaced and the tractors add the difference. It SORT OF does what the original did (the barrel had to be disconnected and pulled back by winch when moved to get it to fit within the scope of the carriage, and even then it was a nightmare to move in small German towns.)
The figures are all vintage Renwal (e.g. big and awful, generally with "sucking chest wounds" or holes in their backs) but it is 1/32 scale and 1/35 figures will look more like Munchkns next to it. Airfix Multipose figures would be a better bet.
