Here's another of my projects I've been working on. As Dean is well aware, the build has taken over a year to get this far :P

It's Tamiya's recent release of the Jagdtiger Early (Henschel). It has been built mainly OOB with the addition of a LionMarc turned metal barrel, and Friuls

There's not heaps left to do, I need to finish the Friuls, tidy up some places of the Hinterhalt pattern, add pioneer tools, put radio aerial back on, then it's Klear before beginning weathering B)

Good stuff. Have you considered leaving the side panels off. I did this with my Ardenne Tamiya Tiger II and it shows the Friuls off beautifully. Great extra detail work BTW.

Thanks guys :)

Bishop, the Jagdtiger will have full schurzen. I'm going to be doing minimal weathering on it, I'm modelling it as a very fresh from the factory vehicle.

I'm not expecting to get much progress done in the next few days, we have SWMBO's mother here and she has based herself in the model room as it has the spare bed :pinch:

Now would be the perfect time to break out that laquer paint and thin it right down with laquer thinners............ :D

Hmm, I had thought of painting some parts with mr surfacer and squirting some globs of superglue onto a glass jar and leaving them in the room with the window closed :blink: :lol:

My wife calls me a curmudgeon. I haven't looked it up but I assume it means "fun loving and free spirited" or some such twaddle. I inform and perform over at www.militarymodels.co.nz and stick my oar in here as well. My passion is WWII 1/35 armour but I'm coming around to liking the odd 1/32 thing...

Can someone confirm that the JagdTiger had the same engine as the panther? Planning one for the back of a Dragonwagon.

Confirmed! The same engine was used in the Tiger I n' II as well in the Panther. That also includes all spinoffs on their chassies...

thought so. The film clips shows they could still perform despite the power unit, at least the last three of the unit in the Ruhr pocket.

I very much doubt the Dragonwagon would be capable of towing a Jagdtiger on the trailer. The trailer was rated to around 40 ton, whereas a Jagdtiger tips the scales at 70 ton :pinch:

Pic is here of 331 on the trailer of a dragon wagon.

25 seconds into the slide show. Have also seen the same tank witht he complete Dragon Wagon in the shot.
hat do people think is the best update set for the tamiya kit of the Jagdtiger and does the tamiya kit have the markings for the 331?

True, I hadn't seen that footage before. I guess the Americans really wanted the Jagdtiger, so overloading the trailer wasn't going to be an issue lol

Tamiya's kit has markings for 331, it's on the box art :)

Value for money detail set would have to be the Passion Models PE set

Thanks.

331 finished its days at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds in the US. It still has the three US deflected shots damage to the mantlet and glacis plate pity about the paint job but lots of their armour is in a bad way. They did at least put 331 on the side.

Actually a good clip for getting the barrel length right. I can't remember if Tamiya has corrected this in the kit you have. Some of them have the barrel set slightly too short because of the references taken from vehicles partly recoiled. Tony Lee has sorted the length out and may be able to add the necessary info.

331 loaded onto the trailer has the gun stuck in recoil, the other clips clearly show the taper at the base of the gun, mine will have the engine deck open to show the engine. Should have the Tamiya kit soon.....

331 shortly after its capture by the US forces and what the town of Neustadt looks like today where 331 was captured.

Tamiya have sorted it out with this kit. They offer the builder the option of buildin' the recoil-stuck barrel or the correct barrel lenght of a workin' gun.

331 on the trailer about to be hauled.
Then on a 100 ton trailer this shows the camo well, then at the Aberdeen proving grounds shows the first repainting.

:blush: This is even older than the Munitionsschlepper Wespe build :blush:

I'd given up a little on this, as I thought I had glued the wheels on, which was going to make it difficult to fit any type of track apart from Friuls (Which I sold :whistle: )

Last night I thought what the hey and gave the wheels a pull, and off they came :blink:

I'm going to press on with this and get it finished. I need to have a browse over the instructions and see what construction is left. Looking at it, I build a lot differently compared to when I assembled this :silly: I'll be using the kit supplied link and length tracks for it now.

Wheels off :woohoo:

Heavens, another one!!! I have the Porsche suspension DML one waiting to be built. I'm toying with the idea of removing the base from the Tamiya Tiger II I have half finished and adding to the DML hull to bring it up to combat specs. The Porsche prototype suspension was hopeless. Watching closely.
