Panzer Zerstorer E50

Post by Alt Berliner » Tue Aug 05, 2014 10:35 pm

For those of you that know me......
I am a producer of Small Scale Armor......
Cpl Overby's Motor Pool
Well on the 23rd of July a customer sent me an email order asking for an E50......
well that's what my brain saw..... E50
So I accepted the order and got started on it.......
I reopened the email to write down his address........
and then I saw it...... he didn't want an E50.......
(this model)

Image

He wants a Jagdpanzer E50

Well I already took his money, and spent it so now I am stuck.......
But I am not letting it stop me.
So I am creating the Panzer Zerstorer E50

Here is the start
Image

and here is where I am right now.

Image

Image

Here is the gun so far

Image

so here I am....... because of my own shortsightedness.......
Custom making a model for a customer. :)


It's at 9pm of the 26th .... so I am calling it a night.....
but here I am at closing.

Image

Image

Image



Well here we are........as of Aug 2nd
this is the First one from the molds.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

As soon as I decide how I want to paint it......
I'll post again.
Right now I am casting the one for that customer of mine. :)

As of Aug 3rd I have it Painted
Thank You All for the support!
Here it is painted.

I have decided that I no longer like the tracks,
they are from an old mold and it's "about time" I made a new master.
So Thats what I did today......
They are in the rubber now,
and when that are done,
I will post a new set of pic's for you all to compare. :)

(There is a "very" slight droop in the gun......
and for some reason the camera causes it to multiply.

I would heat it to straighten it out....... put it's already painted.)

Here we are on 5 August
Well.....I found the tracks to be disappointing......
and thus had decided to make new masters and molds for them.

Please tell me what you think.

A very nice bit of scratch building there!

The paint scheme is subtle yet really good looking.

Pity about the barrel sag...

Every time I look at that monster I keep thinking it'd look good with my 40K orcs!

Fantastic build.

In my post of the build of this beast,
it was obvious that there was a noticeable "droop" in the gun barrel.......

Image

Image

This was a problem in the master.....
so..... I cut the mantlet from the barrel.....
drilled it out (about 1/8 " deep).....
cut 1/8" from the rear end of the barrel....
and glued them back together.

Image

while this "shortened" the gun,
it still allowed it to keep a "respectable" length.
the best thing is that it cured the droop.

Only if you want your Orks to look like Giants,
this is 1/72.

Very impressive. Any chances of a 15mm version?

Hello Andy,

however, I am working on something that might help move in that direction......
so, only time will tell.
