Good day to all
I'm currently planning a modelling project for an E-50
Posted Image
Kit is the Trumpeter 1/35 scale model.
I've been doing some research on the turret models but have found no discussion on the ingame upgraded turret the E-50 Turm Ausf. F
The E-50 schmalturn (as pictured above) and the Panther Ausf. M's turret are the only ones I've managed to gather any data on, the Ausf. M turret I can possibly obtain in some fashion.
Did the Ausf. F turret even exist on blueprint? Or would I have to scratch build one instead based on the ingame model(note that I am a horrible horrible scratch builder and would like to avoid it at all costs)?

The Panther ausf F Schmal did exist and 1 is at Bovington tank museum, albeit in a bad way as it was used for target practice on the range until it was discovered and recovered. I have many pic's of it but I'm unable to post pic's on the site

I have a horrible feeling that plasticard and putty are your only friends.  Unless you have access to a 3d printer and are clever enough to transfer the wot renders and print one.

Trumpeter has a lot of nice Blueprint/non existent (German) models out. They also have a FlakPanzer E-50 and FlakPanzer E-100 (with double 88s!) and the other version of the JgPzE-100 (with frontal superstructure); I however believe they are mostly inspired by ideas rather than facts.

@OP
Please note that Trumpeter does not deliver decals to the model (at least my E-75 did not have decals; which made the end results not as nice as I had hoped for; I used some spare decals I had left from my Tiger ;) )

yup did this also already once. tough some parts are very hard to print like tracks (if you have a machine without a second nozzle for suport material) but turrets are fairly easy actualy
