We take a look at the new E-100 Jagdpanzer by Trumpeter. A paper-panzer kit which follows many similar releases over the past few years. This review includes a brief video on what''s in the box.

Good review and I really like the video too! I think they should be standard from now on to give the kit some depth with it in the reviewers hands.

BTW, that part in question in the video surrounding the mantlet is called the armor collar. There's a welded version (on the early Jagdpanther) and the bolted version for later and on this tank.

Well, have to give this one pass since I already have one, New Connections conversion kit for E-100. Still nice and radical looking what-if.

As soon as I saw the early test shots of this beast I had to have it. The size of the hull tub alone is immense!

I must say I like these new Video reviews Jim, they certainly are a great way to show features of the kit and explain about them at the same time.

I totally agree Tanker-Neil. I really enjoyed building this one, there was no need to count the rivets just enjoy the build. The kit was pretty simple as most things were part of the super structure but the end result was well worth the build. The thing looks like a beast next to the other E-series German TDs on my shelf.
