E100 Collage by enc86 E100 Collage by enc86
Soon after the Germans first encounter the "mega chicken" they started drawing up plans for a massive super heavy tank that would be able to engage such a treat. After final approval from the SS, the E100 became a reality. With only one produced and code name ""Hühnerhäscherschlange" this 130 ton monstrosity featured flared side skirts, roof-mounted MG 42 and a massive 170mm AT gun. The only real question was, would all this be enough to take down the feathered menace.


This is a 1/35 Trumpeter Jagdpanzer E100 model, built "outta the box"(except for the decals) painted with enamels and weathered with art acrylics and pastels. This beast was heavily inspired by growing up with G.I.Joe(Cobra!!!XD) and playing tons of wolfenstein 3d, in no way do I support fascism or ignorance of any kind. This was a pretty fun project and it really was a blast thinking up some sort of sinister SS tank. This thing is pretty freaking huge and overall think it was worth the cash, I would recommend it to any beginner or expert. The only tricky things with this model are the size and standard crazy Trumpeter instructions.
Anyways I am really happy how the one came out, and can't wait for a nice day to see how the chickens like it.

i saw some old videos of them testing one after it left the production line with it being so heavy naturally it could not go through loose dirt or mud with out getting stuck. and weather it saw any action or not who knows.

yea, who knows. this thing really is massive in my collection, wayyyy bigger than even my modern armor. i could see them cooking this up to be in moved in defense of Berlin and just shoot and never move. it really is a testament to those crazy times.
