Preposterous things on an E-100 Part 3 - The Waffenträger

Recommended Posts

E-100 Waffenträger with 128mm gun

Modelcollect 1/72

 

This is Modelcollect's Waffenträger (weapons carrier) version of their E-100, carrying a turreted 128mm Flak 40. The company seems determined to release the E-100 with every conceivable weapon that they can shoehorn onto it, however impractical the result may appear. I built a couple of the other versions last year (which can be found here), and I quite like them for their utter daftness.

This one was built mainly OOB, although I slightly detailed up the turret casing with lifting eyes, weld beads etc. and @Richard E very kindly donated some tools and stowage to dress up the hull a little.

The full build can be found here

And finally, here it is with the previous two instalments of this series of looniness

Those weapons are as mad as you are a great modeller. I love that last picture - utter crazyness!

But gorgeous models nonetheless, all the more so for being Braille Scale.  I couldn't do that in 1/35 ........

 

I can see Trumpeter doing something like these in 1/35 for £100+

I was utterly convinced this was 1/35 'til I read the title again! Absolutely superb... :worthy:

Just read a book about how much the German war effort was sustained by drugs. Maybe the good people at Modelcollect are following suit. 

 

Great work.

Like a lot of people, it took me a while to realise that these were in braille scale. Excellent paint jobs.
