Hi everyone, there seems too be a lacking of Jagdtiger content on the new forums, so thought I better help to resolve that! Presenting my recently (almost) completed build phase of the Takom 8001.
Im calling it complete with two exceptions:
- addition of some spare track (good lord, it seems near impossible to find some aftermarket tracks to suit this! I have a King Tiger just started I want some tracks for, and hopefully there would be some leftover to use as spares on the Jagdtiger).
- Im on the fence about the size of the casting marks I glued to the mantlet, they look pretty big? I might have to scrape off and re-apply smaller?!!??
As for what this represents, I was targeting an early variant. This will have no zimmerit, so im targeting something built between October 44 and November 44, so serial number 305028 or about that. Ideally id like to paint in ambush, but not sure of the timing works as yet.
I did have a build log started on the old forum, but that ceased during the ‘transition’.
Enjoy! I will post some detail photos soon!
Please feel free to comment! Im happy to receive comments about accuracy or otherwise as all feedback will be taken onboard for the future, particularly for the Meng KT I have just started, as it has a lot of similarity.
