Elafant 1945 (Italeri)
This Italeri Elefant took quite a bit of research, to which the whole project was aimed at. I wanted to portray one of the last remaining versions fighting around Berlin in March 1945. No real pictures could be found (to date) so markings and numbering the tank was impossible. As for Zimmerit, of the remaining 50 that survived Kursk, 48 were sent to Italy with Zimmerit of which 14 survived to fight around Berlin. There was no info as to the 2 remaining Elefants so I presume they were Zimmerit less and also fought until the end. Maybe, I dunno.
