Hi everyone, I am new to modeling, I feel like that is important to note.

I am building the 1/35 Trumpeter E75 and it has the really thin two part plastic barrel that I do not like..

So I bought a 128mm barrel that matches the barrel from world of tanks (beast).

But the stock gun mantlet is way too small for the new massive gun I want to put in. so I have to scratch build the mantlet.

I am looking for any tips or designs I should consider?
Should I make it look like the game, or more of the tiger ii mantlet just supersized for the bigger gun?

I would go for an upscaled Tiger II mantlet ..
