well done roger, the best color scheme so far for me, the pattern and tone look superb, now perhaps a light weathering?, mind you i do have a bias on this finish, magnifico! regards simon.

Hi Roger,

Sorry to blast you with a question regarding a little after-market-part availability.

Recently I was thinking to add a round armour plate on the Jagdtiger's engine deck, which I had added on my 2009 King Tiger.

Unfortunately I forgot from whom had I obtained it. I've tried ask the question on the forum, yet received none reply what so ever.

Luckily I've found that you have added it on your 2013 King Tiger.

Do you remember from whom did you get it? Any link that you may aware of?

Thanks in advance and best regards,
Lerh Chang

Hi Chang, this is just a round Blanking plate, left over from when a Snorkel was fitted to the very early Kingtiger Porsche Turret design, very easy to make, a round disc with bolt holes, Roger probably made his own, regards simon.

Thanks Simon for the advice. Do you have any information about who else had sold this part before? I've bought it then, just forgot from whom now.
