Okay, I haven't finished the E-100 yet, but I'll get around to it one day. In the meantime I've reached for this Trumpeter kit as I can't resist the temptation of another 'paper panzer.'
Had this machine ever made if off of the blueprints to become a reality what a beast it would have been.....I mean, just look at that gun!
I can't remember if the kit came with the metal gun barrel or if I ordered it separately, but the kit did supply photo-etched engine grilles and front/rear fenders (if you prefer plastic they also supply those too). The photo etch fenders are made from quite stiff metal, but I appreciate they were included and even without special tools they are easy to fashion into shape.
I can't wait to get to the painting stages of this build although I haven't quite decided what colours or scheme to go with - being a 'paper panzer' means I am free to use artistic license albeit with a little restraint bearing in mind the paints actually available in 1945.
