Panzerkampfwagen E-75

 

The Panzerkampfwagen E-75 was a German project for a tank from the second world war. He belonged to the E-series, with the German Empire from approximately 1942 has attempted to replace the previous types of armor.

Around 1942, the developments of E-line began to replace up to date existing Panzer III and Panzer IV and the larger Panther and Tiger. Up to the 140-ton E 100, these projects should range from the 5-t armor. Assemblies should be simplified, and it can be applied to multiple types; an equal strategy of part of should reduce costs and increase the ease of maintenance.

It was planned to place the approximately 75 tonnes heavy tank (hence the name S-75) just above the E-50 and be equipped with the 128 mm gun from the Jagdtiger (with modified barrel). The dimensions should be heavier armament and armour at the level of the E-50.

Just like in the E-50, E-75 should be powered by a 900 HP engine type Maybach HL 234. This was a development of the HL 230 used in the Panther, but with fuel injection. With this engine, a top speed of around 40-45 km/h on the road should be possible.

On the same chassis, the StuG-75 was intended as a replacement for the Jagdtiger. With a weight of about 85 tons and heavy armor, these chariots with a 150 mm gun from the mouse should be armed.

Serves as the base model of the E - 75 on a scale 1/35 trumpeter company. Numerous additional armour was to convert the vehicle into a 12 cm version and welded joints were angry. The conversion should be also credible. See the pictures 1 - 19

 Hi all, the next step was the rust tone. To simulate this i spray with my old testors and a splater nozzle a base with Model Master Acrylic Navy Brown AN 510. The next layer was a mixture from Tamiya XF 85 Rubber Black and Tamiya XF 64 Red Brown (50 % + 50%). For Highlights i use Tamiya XF 68 Nato Brown ( very thin to simulate a mottle surface).(26-32)
