I'm new to this forum, and this hobby too. Though I do have some experience in scratchbuilding. I'm planning on Scratching a 1:35 scale E-100 StuG
So I spent the past month or so collecting what information I could find on this beast, and the last few days drawing up some plans (1:70 scale), these are them:
The various thickness of armour:
Overall view and front measurements:
And the side Measurements:
I realise the writing is quite difficult to make out, but I scaled the pictures down to fit properly on monitors. If people woud like I can create some larger versions and link you to them.
I'll be using these tracks and suspension:
My main experience with scratchbuilding lies in the world of Warhammer 40,000, but I don't imagine the leap will be that great, as a lot of the stuff I work with is heavily based on real world AFV's. For instance:
One thing I'd like however, is pictures of the suspension mountings on the hull side of the E100, either the 1:35 version or the 1:72. If not, i'll just try and buy the Dragon 1:72 model.
So, wish me luck!
Edit: It's just occured to me, this should be in the AFV section. Oops. =
