Title: E-100 NACHTJÄGER Complete
Post by: Steve Blazo on April 02, 2021, 08:19:54 PM
In 1946, with the development of second generation night vision, the Heer authorized the formation of a dedicated NACHTJÄGER unit, the 11th Panzer Division was selected as the trial unit. The new forward engine E-100 was chosen as the heavy armor element, supported by infantry units equipped with night vision equipment.

Nice work.

Is the Night vision gear in the kit or source from elsewhere ?

The IR equipment on the commanders station is from the kit with MG added. The headlight and main gun light are from other E-100 kits. The IR vision lens for the driver and gunner are scratch built.
