Paper Panzer Productions PPP35017: GT-103 gas turbine for Trumpeter E-50, E-75 and Dragon King Tiger

Germany fielded the first jet fighter in the world, the ME-262. Much less known is the fact that German engineers were also looking into the possibility of installing gas turbines in panzers. In the summer of 1944 Dr. Alfred Müller began his work on these projects in earnst. The final results of his work, and that of his assistant Dipl.-Ing. Kolb, were the designs GT-101, GT-102 and GT-103. Of the first two sketches for the installation in the Panther exist. Of the GT-103 only a cross-section sketch exists. This power unit was a GT-102 unit with a regenerative heat exchanger added to reduce the fuel consumption. Paper Panzer Productions presents with this conversion its interpretation of the GT-103 power unit. The kit comes with photo-etch grilles for the dual turbine exhausts and two backplates: one for the Trumpeter E-50 and E-75 kits and one for the Dragon King Tiger kits. You are only require to sand the engine deck a bit to make it fit the Dragon kit.
