JagdPanther - new look

Post by Steen Vøler » Mon Jan 12, 2015 2:45 pm

hi all

Decided to take my JagdPanther for another travel 8)

Going to make the outside overhaul also - during the fall I made the internal overhaul and was quite happy with it, so being in the overhaul mode, now is the time for the outside parts

First I removed the old weldings - grinded the aluminium parts so it should look like a sttel cut and added Mr. Putty around it

Next is to make the surface on the fighting room more "steel" look alike by adding some structure padding

pictures will come
cheers

Looking good Steen. By the way, what happened to your hull MG? It looks as thought it's designed to fire around corners......

Best regards

Stephen

all the Work with the welding is now finished. Also the top of the fighting compartment have been grinded with sandpaper to get it 100% correct alligned to the front glacis. Earlier it stood up appx 2 mm.

The tank is now primed in basic color Red-Brown and Next step is to build up the color scheme layer to layer

Steen,
Excellent makeover. Really nice paint. I'm jealous - would love to have a JP.
Best regards,
Bob
