Trumpeter's E-100
 
1 Attachment(s)
Good evening all,

After completing a 1/35 Maus last year, Iíve decided to jump in and have a ďgoĒ at Trumpeterís E-100. Iím planning on doing it in a city setting, Berlin actually, and will incorporate some soldiers around it. I mainly want to use both the tank and the soldiers to give a sense of scale.

Iím planning on making the turret completely painted with some sort of camo on it. For the main structure, Iím considering bare metal with oxidation. Iím not a fan of red primer, but weíll see. I want it to look different.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Hereís tonightís progress:

Good evening all,

I made some more progress tonight. I added some more texture to the turret and to the actual deck of the tank. It’s looking pretty good so far. I’ll add the further details tomorrow or the day after.

I also made some progress with the Friul tracks by dipping them in some Blacken’ It. They turned out pretty well and I’ll be making my way to airbrush them a bit and add some pigments.

As always, comments are appreciated.

All the best,
Jake

Good evening everyone,

I made a little more progress tonight. I joined the top and bottom tonight and also added some photo-etch. I’ll add some further details tomorrow and try to improve some of the weld lines on the rear of the tank.

Progress is coming slow, but it’ll be worth all the nit-pickiness once I’m in the painting stages. As always, comments and feedback are appreciated.

All the best,
Jake

Good evening guys,

I finally finished all the assembly and fitting of the tank. I primed the tank in black and then did an overspray of grey to add some contrast before I begin painting. I’ll pop the turret off and paint it its appropriate colors. I’m leaving the wheels off for last so that I can get behind them with pigments and dirt.

As always, C&C is appreciated.

Good evening,

Made some further progress tonight: I textured the side skirts, primed them and added them to the tank. I’m working on the long task of sanding all of the road wheels now. I’ll start coating the tracks tomorrow at some point.

Jake,

Nice start on that huge monster! What color scheme did you have in mind?

Thanks! I was thinking of doing some splinter camo using Late War colors.

All the best,

Good evening guys,

It’s been a busy week, but here’s an update.

The chips and weathering will be subdued with the pigments and others that I add to the tank. It's going to look well-used and poorly maintained in a '46-'47 environment if the Germans had held out a bit longer.

As always, any C&C is appreciated.

All the best,
Jake

I'm sorry: hairspray-technique is overdone. Turret is almost acceptable, but hull has way too big chips for the scale. I'd personally paint it over or lose the skirt. But it is Your model and anything that makes You happy...

Build is although nice and clean. Camo choice is also cool.
