In 1938 Henschet started to manufacture a VK30.01(H) prototype. But in 1941 the project was given up to start with the VK36.01 (H) which would give rise to the famous Tiger. By that moment there were several operational VK30.01 (H) chassis. It was decided that two of them, would take the 12,8 cm KL/61 Rheinmetall which was an adaptation of the 12,8 cm Flak Gërat 40. So, the hull of the VK30.01 (H) was lengthened and an eighth wheel was added besides of building a superstructure without roof to protect the crew. The unofficial name of these vehicles was Sturer Emil, though this name doesn’t appear in any official document. The two vehicles manufactured had different details. Today the second one can be found at the Kubinka museum in Russia. Both of them saw services until 1943 in the south of the east front.
The big parts come in the box separately from the bags with the sprues. The tracks are good quality ones with a hollow central horn, something unusual to see in vinyl tracks. The instructions include 20 building steps plus a color paint scheme.
This kit is one of those that you think you’ll never wish to build until some manufacturer introduce one injected in plastic, with good quality details and comparatively inexpensive…something nearly impossible. But Trumpeter made my wishes came true to perfection…
