Chris Preston’s E-50 Medium Tank with 105 Gun in 1/72

Modelcollect UA72040 E-50 Medium Tank with 105 Gun in 1/72
Chris Preston has just sent in numerous photos of his E-50 Medium Tank with 105 Gun as his entry in the ‘Post War Vehicles’ competition.
Chris says: “This is a modelcollect kit, actually the first of theirs I ever made, it is again all hand painted (I suppose one day I should learn to use an airbrush!). The only addition was the antenna courtesy of RB. Hope you like”.
We do Chris, and interesting to see a model of the simplified tank intended to replace the Panzer IV and Panzer V Panther.


  1. Nice to see this kit built up Chris.
    With painting skills like that you certainly don’t need an AB mate.
    Great job all round IMHO.

    • Cheers Paul, that’s really nice of you to say.

      Picked up the mig Panther book at Cosford. Wow, there are some cracking camos in it. I hope that I can try to do them on some Panthers in the future.

      If I get some done I’ll send them to the magazine & put them on my FB albums

      by the way ‘IMHO’??

    Totally agree, a beautiful model! I’d be pleased to get the same effect in 1/35th……
