Hello Phil, that is some achievement.......you are to be congratulated. :D To fit so many additional features into such so small area, is very impressive. Well done mate, I wish I had the skills. Soon be 'Tiger Time'....really looking forward to that.

I spend so much time, following the 'builds'........ never mind, back to the Jagd.....regards Mick.

Thanks very much Mick :D
It was a bit of a job working arround the Armortek Recoil and Elevation Gear.
I tried to take a picture of my loader shoving a round into the breach,but he
was standing too high,on top of my speakers :) and there wasnt any room to bend his legs
a bit either.
Happy Jagdpanther building
Regards
Phil

Hello Phill.

I have been following your build, the stowage racks for the shells was something I had wanted to try to do in my King Tiger, but it was always a "going to do" project and now you have done it :D very well I reckon, all your efforts have paid off it looks the business mate well done.
Cheers Paul :wink:

Hi Paul
Thanks very much :D
It was nice to have a go at inside the Turret on the T34-85,it
had some decent size shelves.
It gave me a lot of practice in soldering the thin galvanised sheet
I had already got.
Hope one day you get time to do your King Tiger racks,in between all the other Tanks
you turn out of your workshop,it would be a site to see.
Cheers
Phil

Hi Yves
Thank you for your nice comments :D
I have to thank Nick for machining the Amunition for me,he did a great job on
the 3 different types and a couple of empty shell casings.

Just think may be in the future,all the Armortek control modules might be on wafer
thin chips and 30 amp hour batterys are the size of a watch battery.
All that space for a working Animatronics crew,that would climb in and out of the
Tanks on there own.
Maybe even the loader would clean the blank firer after each shot :roll: :oops:
Back to reallity.
Thanks and Regards
Phil
