.thanks again for the positive feedback fellow builders, its hard to know where to stop at this stage on the rear hull, its a bit of a mix and match on parts being a late war vehicle, because the tools and parts are so big each item is a model in its self, and then trying to blend it all in, good fun and a challenge though, once again many thanks, regards simon manning,

Hi Simon
That is a stunning build and paint job.
The Jagdpanther is still my favorite of all
the German stuff (except perhaps the STUG III) :lol:
shame I missed out getting one of these models twice now :(

Derek
we must stop making stupid predictions

thanks, tim, steve, derek, one more step forward, the new armortek mg mount fitted with the bullit trap steps already machined in, i milled the panther mg myself before, bit of a work up holding it, this was easy paint and install, also u-shackles fitted, glad you all liked the jag so far, regards simon.

Simon,
Amazing details, Amazing paint work, and Amazing weathering. It looks like a real tank in a museum. Doesn't get any better than this! You will have to write a book someday to teach us all how to paint like that. Fantastic work. Another "best in show".
Best regards,
Bob
