1/144 - E100 Stug Diorama by KIWI RESIN MODELS


1/144 - E100 Stug Diorama by KIWI RESIN MODELS
=======================================
.
There an interesting kit avilable on e-bay a resin 1dioroama scene.
.
It comes complete with base and building, and more interestingly
2x E100 Stugs.
.
Based upon a storyline of being in Moscow 1946, i think the building are still essentially western/central european! so it could still fulfill a number of potential scenarios.
.
The stugs are well made and the tracks are nicely done(very professionally done), the E100 kits are as good as the better Japanes resin kits i have seen. So no problems there!
.
There are componants of this diorama that may closely match other items you have seen.
.
Hopefully the sales of this would be good and more Panzer'46 will be forthcoming?

Try 370075011844. Whilst the kit includes two E100's, it is pretty expensive at $US65 - very much in the Wing144 price range. The advert has 9 available at the time I wrote this.

Apart from several items in other scales, Kiwi Resin also sell a conversion kit for the 1/144 SR-71 Blackbird to build the earlier A-12, the drone carrying M-21 (complete with drone) and the YF-12 interceptor. Buy It Now price is $US26.

Anyone know of the quality of their SR-71 conversions? Maybe some pictures or links they can recommend?

I don't know anything for certain, but given their past history I'd lay a small wager that "their" conversion sets are knock-offs of the old 12squared ones. So, fair to middling quality but expect to use a lot of filler.

Kiwi Resin Here, the 1/144 Blackbirds have no relationship with the 12 squared kits. The masters were hand carved, not without some difficulty
