German Super Heavy Tank E-100 Ausf.B

I bought this kit second hand and therefore a few parts of the contents were missing.
PE parts, a few small parts and the tracks.
I got the small PE set from Voyager Model to replace them, but the rectangular grilles didn't quite fit - they were a bit too small.
Replaced the missing tracks with those from OKB Grigorov.

I wanted to give the whole thing a more "field-suitable" look and added tools from a Flyhawk supplement set.
Also built a container for the barrel cleaning device.

Got me a "resin block;)" from to replace the turret.
Here I replaced the commander's dome and the barrel with an aluminum part.
I stole that from an old 1/35 Churchill and it fit almost perfectly in size and shape to the original part.
At the muzzle I milled an M3 thread because I wanted to represent it with the muzzle brake removed.

The commander also comes from Model Trans Modellbau from a tank crew set.

After a big mishap happened to me at the first attempt while airbrushing, I was forced to use the Paint Remover.
However, it attacked the resin tracks and turned them into a jelly-like mass.
Before it could go any further, the entire chassis had to be removed, cleaned and reassembled.

Used Parts: UA72068, Modell Trans Modellbau MT72340, OKB Grigorov S72250, S72442, Voyager Model PE72005, Flyhawk FH72001
