we have Ken ‘Cpl’ Overby’s resin Krokodile, used to
convert Dragon’s E-100. As normal for Ken’s kits, the conversion
is hefty, and weighs quite a bit. As standard from him, the kit is well
moulded, with parts cast on a thin sheet of resin that’s easily
removed from the casting sprues.
The main body is cast as one lump sum, with the casting block on the bottom. However, Ken removes the large casting blocks, so there is no messy removal as with Cromwell Models. (Casting blocks on delicate tracks? What is Gordon thinking…but I digress.)
are the other parts the kit came with (pardon the glare), with two
flame suppressing mufflers, an anti-aircraft turret (with 20mm auto
cannon), and two hatches. The main gun of the Krokodile seems to be
a lengthened 150mm gun.
Ken has given us an excellent conversion kit for the E-100. It’s
a shame Dragon stopped making the E-100. If you can grab an E-100
kit, definitely add this kit to your collection.
