Jagdpanther no 13

Post by David Brady » Sat Oct 17, 2020 11:48 pm

Hi,

This tank has defanatly been around the block a few times, I can remember when David pengelly owned it....three careful previous owners with full service history....no such luck, but I'm surprised at how well this model has fared, a testament to Armortek and previous owners.

Thinking back to when David Pengelly owned, I can remember this being mentioned in the for sale add.

if you are looking for a presitine tank in parade condition , then this is not the tank for you ...he wasn't joking

My plan is to pull this back to a good standard, replace the tracks upgrade the exhaust and bump stops replace tools with a mixture of Steve Winstone & Tim Catton.

Electronics out - smoke oil spilled extra mess to clean

Bump stops will be replaced with Steve Winstone upgrade, mud guards removed for paint stripping and refurbishing

Sprocket cleaned - not bad for 12 years use

Winstone mud guards- cleaned and manipulated back to correct shape I will fix missing parts and solder back to original condition

Labour of love Dave, i remember Dave Pengelly owning this vehicle, he loved to drive his models, the Tank looks semi- real sat on the work bench with the wheels off, all the different colours on the hull, regards simon.

Hi Simon,

It certainly is - the jagdpanther is a great looker, I'm surprised Panthers and jagdpanthers are not more popular.
Regards

Nice project David, I my opinion the panther family built correctly are the best runners Armortek have ever made ! 8) It just works.

Great to see this one restored. Lovely work so far on those original parts. I agree the Panther family is one of my Armortek fav's as well.
best regards,
B
