scooter Posted June 17, 2012 Share Posted June 17, 2012 PanzerjÃƒÂ¤ger Tiger (P) Elefant (Sd.Kfz. 184) 2.Kp.Isch.Pzjg.Abt.653, SE Poland Ã¢â‚¬â€œ August 1944. Finished today is my Trumpeter Ã¢â‚¬Å“ElefantÃ¢â‚¬Â in 1/72 scale (#07204). This is an operational vehicle depicted from the 653rd Heavy Tank Destroyer Battalion, with weathering and decals to depict a machine in Poland in late summer 1944. 2 Company was formed as a consolidated Elefant unit from usable machines located in that area, and had a total strength of 12 on hand at that time. The kit goes together well, and was one of the first Trumpeter armor kits released in 2003. Included are the correct photoetched brass parts for the updated Elefant engine grilles, and a somewhat complicated track system. (I timed it as about 104 minutes per side to assemble the tracks) The antenna was added, and the Ã¢â‚¬Å“221Ã¢â‚¬Â translates, I believe, to 2 Company/2 Platoon/Vehicle 1. Really quite a fun build, with an enjoyable painting and weathering experience. Only one 1:1 Elefant remains today. Enjoy! Adam Quote Link to post Share on other sites
