Panzer Krieg '47 E-100 Super Heavy

  • move
This was done for a bit of fun using items that would have been available at the time, and shows also the potential for upgrading of the kit. I wanted to keep costs down, so every thing used were items I had in the spares box or in my stash. Summary of the main additions:
  • AFV club search light.
  • Support frame for search light converted from the search light trailer.
  • Front MG added.
  • Barrel from RB models.
  • Coax changed to a 20mm from RB again.
  • Etch schurzen from a Panther kit added to turret.
  • Oil drums from Tamiya with scratch built supporting brackets.
  • Anti slip mesh to front and to sides of turret.
  • Extra tool boxes on rear.
  • Antenna on turret.
  • Unditching log on side.

About Stephen Armstrong (steve1)
FROM: NORTHERN IRELAND, UNITED KINGDOM

I have been building models for 40 years my first being an Airfix Spitfire, having tried planes,ships and certain figures I found my niche with German and Russian AFVs. I think the attraction is due to the large variety of vehicles and colours, now modeling is my passion and I am still learning As...

Steve, Let's see....1947 and the Nazis are still around...? Hmmmmm, Mongolia facing the Japanese? Meeting the Japanese in India? Salisbury Plain Wehrmacht training area? At a trade show in New York? Got to love paper panzers!

Just one small mistake about it: "Kreig" is incorrect; it should be "Krieg". Sorry Mate

Black_Sheep, thanks for that, however the feature is about the model not my spelling. Sorry mate.

What black_sheep meant was - it's either "Krieg" (german for "war") or "Kreig" (does not compute). It's the difference topic vs. base of your dioarama - nothing more - either intentional or accidental

And btw. a very nice E-100 model ... probably the most "attractive" one i've ever seen. Love the added search-light, barrels and the etched "Schuerzen" on the turrent

Very cool model. Beautifully painted and weathered. Interesting to see what may have been had history taken a different path. Well done
