Comparison 5E3 vs 18 Watt OTs

Comparison 5E3 vs 18 Watt OTs
I'm starting a 6v6 based project with a 5E3 output section. Preamp normal channel voicing is based on JTM 45 bright channel; instrument/bright channel is based upon the tremo channel of a Supro S6424. I'm interested in the similarities and differences in sound between the 5E3 and 18 Watt Marshall OTs. I know that both have an 8K primary. Can anyone provide info regarding differences in sound and physical characteristics between the two?
