I don't like competitions in hobbies so no worries there. In fact I think competitions bring out the worst in some people. I prefer to get inspiration from others work and to encourage them whenever I can! You don't look like you need any encouragement though because your E-100 is looking fantastic - and I will draw inspiration from your models!
My E-series lineup will need some sort of backdrop I think in order to bring it together, but no full diorama. More like a basic "ground" and a backdrop with some features to frame them. I've been thinking of creating some "outside factory" look & feel - but this can change many times before I'm done
It's easy to understand why the French and the Russians took a lot of design elements from the E-series when they built the first post-WWII generations of tanks. Some features of the E-series are still visible today in modern tanks!
I have no interest in the politics regarding WWII but the German engineering was miles ahead of anything else back then - both armour and aircraft, and this is what I'd like to honour by making my a bit bonkers build!
Thank you for sharing your project and pictures!
