Completed>>Sd.Kfz.184 ‘Elefant’

completed on 06-05-2009

This is my first military kit. At first, I try to make it because it seems easy. It turns out that I was wrong. There were so many steps to do before you could really makes a tanks seems real. I love doin’ it though! Because this war machine is really cool.

For the kit itself, It is categorized as a Tank Destroyer Type. You can easily notice this from the non-moveable turret. The ‘Elefant’ belongs to the German during World War II. The German produce only 91 ‘Elefant’.  It was famous for its very long range attack, and thick armor that keeps the crew safe. The thick armor, however, causes the increasing weight that reduces the speed. It also becomes hard to pull and towed when it has an engine failure.
