i do like the look of the jagpanther, and on your that photo of an early production Tiger 1 that is really a sweet buiid, best i have seen and it would blow your socks off the level of detail, i have a few unfinished myself, the JagdTiger with the Porsche suspension is sitting on the shelf not finished one i started well over a year ago, the track links had multiple parts and the hard work is done, and then sometimes the paint can hide the detail i would be in two minds whether to paint that tiger or not or paint and save as many photo's of the build as possible, that one should be published, its one that gets your attention.

Well, to be honest, that was my second African Tiger, I messed up the first one when trying to remove a bad paintjob using oven cleaner. Destroyed all the etchwork...quite painfull :D Rest assured, this one will be painted, I have plenty of photos. I always take them with an article in mind. Hope it might feature in MilMod mag one day too, though that will be a very distant future :D

And don't forget to show that JagdTiger one day, we love big kittycats :P

Circle Template you can get in the art shop or easons it will do loads of sizes or there is fancy ones by quick wheel.

http://quickwheelstore.com/quickwheel.html?mode=list i use both, I bough the panzer IV and panther quick wheel sets as those are the ones i use most.

if you do get one. and it says for dragon / tamiaya. it will fit either. i have ones for dragon kist and have used on tamiya and zvesda [smilie=thumb.gif]

NIce paintwork mate, really love that camo and tools look good. Not too big fan of heavy sooth on exhausts but that's a personal thing (German panzers were petrol driven and not diesel ^^). Keep up the good work!
