Hello everybody,

imagine the world did not end 1945 - the Germans built new tanks and weapons .... and a huge hunter was realised, based on the giant E-100 tank.

The trumpeter kit of the Jagdpanzer E-100 is the base for this fantasy project... several modifications and additions ... completey fantasy

definitely strengthen the back idler's & don't use the rubber tracks. Buy Trumpeters link track set instead, save yourself the headache. Same goes for the other E-100 turret version.Both kits use the same wheels & track.(the rubber track will rip the idler right off because its such a weak fitting)

ps- nice job on your kit so far.

Hello,

the beast has its colors.... I think the colors are a good choice for it - I like it!

Now working with the base and the Friul tracks ...

Hello @ all,

a small update. The Friul Metal tracks are finished and mounted. Looks really heavy I think (and the beast IS heavy with the tracks on)

Now I will add some small details on the tank, the infrared unit needs to be painted, the figure also. Some spare tracks and other small things... antenna....

The diorama will get some tank barriers and other barricades as well as some debris on the rear left side on the road, some bushes behind the fence... and some small stuff at the lantern ...
