My good friend Adam Coleman sent these photos of his great work on this Elefant. Thanks for sharing your work Adam!

Finally complete is my 1/35 Elefant Sd.Kfz.184 by Italeri. This depicts a late war vehicle of 653rd Heavy Panzerjäger Battalion in Germany. As many know, the Italeri kit is from the 70’s and has some age related issues to be fixed, but perhaps the biggest difference was the addition of a metal barrel for the 88mm gun and metal tow cables on each side. There are a few other add-ons to finish it all up, namely a home made flag, the addition of the Tamiya zimmerit, and the trees and broken logs on the front glacis plate. I very much enjoyed this build as it seemed to get better as it went on! (Not always like that) Everything seemed to flow very well and by the time we reached the final airbrush work, the mighty Grex TG came through like dream. Enjoy the Elefant!
