Soooo good and soooo cheap...Trump's new "Sturer Emil"
Posted by J-Hulk on Friday, May 20, 2005 9:29 AM
Just picked up Trumpeter's new 1/35 German 12.8cm Selbstfahrlafette L/61 "Sturer Emil" at an LHS today...and the regular price is just under $15 USD!! The kit looks great, with very crisp molding, and even the track shoe horns are properly hollow! From what I understand, this kit is being sold at this low price to celebrate it as Trump's 350th kit.
Thanks, Trumpeter!

Also, they've just released a 1/72 Swedish "S" tank, for about $10 USD.

The best part is, spend 30 dollars and you can recreate the entire German fleet of them! Laugh [(-D]

It is an interesting looking vehicle. There's a bunch of pictures of it in the Wydawnictwo Militaria book on the Ferdinand/Elefant. The Russians captured one and put in it Red Square. It might be in a Russian tank museum now. What a monster of a gun!

Tell me about it. I will probably buy several of the SA-6 kits.

350? I didn't realize Trumpeter had put out that many kits.

Big Smile [:D] Interesting kit.

The German designation is 12.8cm Selbstfahrlafette L/61 (Panzerselbstfahrlafette V). The Germans produced two vehicles in 1942 which were dispatched to the Eastern Front. One was captured by the Russians in 1943 and analyzed.
