Thanks for the review Charles. Got the both E50 and E75 the other day and thought that I got shortchanged as no decals were in the boxes. They could have at least put in some basic markings in it. Still a much welcome what-if kit. Cheers -- Tat

I've not done a Trumpeter kit yet. How does the quality and realism compare to the other big names?

Wow, hard to believe that Axis fans get what-if-tank model kits by a major manufacturer. Review makes the kit more intriguing. It's always interesting to see what-if Nazi dioramas, too.

Trumpeter kits can be hit and miss depending on how old the kit is as they tended to have very large knock out marks in some badly chosen places. The older the kit the more likely the problem is going to be encountered, however the KV tanks are excellent and score very highly in all areas. Trumpeters latest offerings are very good taken as a whole.
