Jagdpanther from William

Post by William Gardeniers » Sat Jun 25, 2011 6:48 pm

Hello

I got my Jagdpanther in 2009 second hand half build and painted yellow.

Image

The hull is welded on some points :oops: when i bought it.
I will building a Jagdpanther from the 654 schwere panzer abteilung.

Image
After getting the aftersale parts i got started with the build , first getting the paint off. this wasn't easy.
When i got my dubbel suspension upgrade i started with something i didn't find easy after several time's it was like this

Image

I made a plate to get a flat base.

Image

When this was finisch i started with the outside the running gear.

Image

More to come.

regards William

William,
Your detailing is looking great! I need to machine my engine access cover like you did - it looks great. Love the working latch and storage bins.
Best regards,

William,
Your JP is looking great. The front fenders look fantastic. Congrats on picking up a late Tiger. It too looks like a very nice model.
Kind regards, Bob
