There will be pictures for sure but I hadn't thought of this triplet when I started the E-100 build so I didn't take any build pictures - but there will be plenty of "project pictures" when the other two models begin their assembly and the thinking process for the over all design of the lineup starts for real...
If done right it can look nice as a "small" vignette?! The Flakpanzer is part of a GB that starts in January so I can't start building that one yet, and I've promised myself to clear half of the "table of shame" before I begin with the Jagdpanzer so I'm fully focused on finishing all those "almost done" builds right now...
I will paint all three of them at the same time to ensure they've got the exact same tone and colours. Not the same pattern, but the same colours. That's how the current plan is anyway.
There is a possible continuation to this too and that is to do a more "complete" Entwicklung lineup covering E-5, E-10, E-25, E-50, E-75 and E-100. Many of the released kits are pure fantasy or imagination - many based on World of Tanks creations, but that's ok with me since most of these never left the proposal stage due to the end of WWII. If not it's a really good excuse to build even more scale models
I built the E-25 yesterday with modifications to make it look more like the E-25 in WoT than on the box and I've seen kits available for most of the others in the Entwicklung range so I've kinda started that expansion already - but the initial focus is for the E-100 triplets!
If this lineup is done on a "factory" diorama/vignette it could look nice, but also with a bit of wear because the Germans protected their tank factories by simply using the tanks that were ready. It allows for some flexibility regarding weathering at least. I don't want to do them like brand spanking new, but still in context.
A friend recently bought a 40W laser cutter so I have the possibility to create whatever "factory" structures in a bit larger size without having to do all of it by hand. I hope I can boil things down to a decision in the next couple of weeks.
