Hey guys here's the progress so far on my E75, its based on a tamiya kingtiger. I have been building this inconjuction with a mate in the UK who is kindly doing the turret for me... as he has built several of them.

Anyway here are the pics to date.

Ok everyone ... hot Off the press
The E75 .. 128mm main gun
My turret arrived safe and sound I have no words but WOW this turret is absolutely stunning ..

Now let the build begin and pray my talents are somewhere near good enough to do it justice, also started on the gas turbine engine deck
