"Modelcollect has really gone into some weird territory with their latest series of "Fist of War" kits which give us a way beyond "What-if?" territory with their heavy tank walker E-75 concept. Andy Moore quite likes these kits, and he has given us the inbox of this new kit before he gets building the kit…"

I think it's pretty silly. I'll not buy one nor would I even use it if I got one given to me. Ugly and totally implausible,

They not even trying

I suppose the underside AA mount is necessary due to the doubled height of the beast…

But how can it be Weird War Germans without it being at least Panzer Gray (the color when the Germans were actually winning), if not Dunkelgelb (probably best-known German color) or Olivgrun (the actual color for 1945).

But dang. $30 USD for the model… I thought DP9 models were spendy…

It is a fraction larger than the DP9 models, though.

It's 1:72, not the nominal 1:100 of DP9

Not that I'd get one, Weird war isn't my bag.

I have to say that it would seem just so much easier with tracks

The ground pressure on those walker legs would be brutal

Just sayin'

Even with the under-guns, it's horribly vulnerable to close assault by infantry (the big bulky legs block the arcs of fire a lot.) I imagine for faster road travel they strap some roller skates on that puppy… ;-)
