My Jagd

Post by Olaf Claus » Sun Nov 04, 2012 2:10 am

i post here my new project, the J.P. the model is by in Nov. last Year, and i work on the interior.
The new and the old Jagd:
Image
Most important for me is the instalation of the pipe-return system, an powewrfull Sound system, a few specials in combination with the new Beier Sund Unit USM RC2. A very nice Soundunit, its very flexible and have very much functions. The price speaks for it self.
Ok her a some Photos from the Jagd:
The new front Plate
Image
everything cleared out:
Image
An Armortek wheel and an wolgorgrad jagd wheel, the tires to small.:
Image
Dietrich weber and i have for the panther and the Jagdpanther an return pipe system bulid!.
In combination with an Power servo, the beier RC2 and an small special self made electronic work this unit. The orig. Armortek Parts had to be changed:
the remote orig. parts.:
Image
the linear bearings:
Image
the new parts:
Image
Image
Image
Image
the small engine collision with the right big engine, ther is a new Plate:
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Ok, and here a funny movie from the mechanics, the electronik for fast back and slowly forward is not connectet, because of the language makes it quiet: :lol:

the orig. Armortek "black box" or distribution plate i have removed:
Image
This is my self distribution Box: one Sound 12Volts circle, one 24Volts engine circle from driving accu, one 12Volts small engine circle from driving accu. Its not so fine, but its functionality:

Olaf - thanks for sharing your great build. The information on the Beier system is interesting, I've had a look at their website and the instructions. The exhausts are quite amazing - but I thought the Auspuff Flammenvernichteren were supposed to vernichten the Flammen! Back to the drawing board.

Regards

Stephen

The Fire is very big, but in the sun you dont see it! I drive the most time on Day.

For the Kingtiger Exhaust Pipe is it safe better.

Hello togehther,
i;ve have a Question to the Panther and Jagdpanther Chain, can you help me?
its very difficult in english for but i hope you understand me. The Chain of the next Pictures are reared in different directions. It is not clear waht is right? Waht is the best direction for us Model? I have an idea, but its right?... see the pictures and you understand it:
Image
Image
the first Picture is the Chain too down, the second Picture is the Chain to up!!!!
in the Armortek manual is the Chain to down. look here:
Image
The problem: wenn the Chain is mounted "up" you can have this Problem on the small brigde. on the Chain Eye is the broken bridge, see here:
Image
Image
when the chain is mounted "down" is the Chain Eye in the other direction and there are a bigger bridge, Ok?
see here:
Image
the sprocket press now presses on the thick bridge Type.
this is chain "down"!!!!
here are the Photo from a drwing of Panther Chain.
Image
once more, Japa Chain up:!
Image
Panther, Chain down??!:
Image

Ok, can you say me waht is the right direction??? or is all ok?
regards Olaf

Hi Olaf,

Impressing JP you have there in the making, very well done!

Regarding the track chevrons...yes this is confusing.

The links always seems to be reversed on Early JP:s and not that often on Later ones.

There is a rumour they had the tracks that way as bailing out from an Ambush the manual said they was to go in full reverse always expose the thick front to the enemy and therefore in need for good grip for the tracks.
Well this has never been verified in any document and I say is just a myth.

No the real case was that Miag that made the early JP:s had no experience making Panthers as MNH and DB had who from Nov 1944 also begun making JP:s
Miag simply made a mistake, no big deal as the links work as good reversed as when assembled correct.

To make matters more complicated the Armortek links are made with the chevron up side down...

Image

No big deal and I suggest you do as I and make your JP with the chevrons the correct way and when they are worn out (as they will) reverse the tracks.

Kind regards
Kent
It´s all in the details!

Olaf,
Beautiful work on your JP, esp the painting. The rolled effect on the armor is impressive. The salt chipping effect is amazing, looks very real. Perhaps you have discovered the masters (Simon) paint chip technique? Or created a new standard! Either way, this is going to be a great looking model. Thanks again for sharing.
Best regards,
Bob
