Cheers Mike, but v.scary for me to think it was done 11 years ago now...where the hell did that go? Seems like only yesterday...
But it was a very nice kit even then in its first basic incarnation before it was later "Smart-kitted" then "Premium-Editioned" as DML love to do to get a few more sales bites. So I'll be very interested to see if Tamiya's lifts the bar with its latest offering or is just another "alternative" in the virtual scrum of Elefant kits currently out there now?
But I've also got 2 or 3 more DMLs "half-started" in my stash too built to varying points over the last few years (as is my frustrating MO these days), as well as the new Tamiya one sitting here I'm itching to get into as well. So will see what if anything I can actually get done in the next month or so this time round - certainly no interiors at least, thats for sure! Maybe even get some paint on a couple with any luck if the Gods are smiling
Though FWIW for anyone interested in their insides, I tured up this amazing build log for an Elefant interior searching for ref pics the other day by a German chap named Johannes Schneider I think on Planet Armor;
Sadly a few pics have now expired but if you wade through the 49 odd pages theres still more than enough to impress...
