Working on my jagdpanzer E75 and got the king tiger upper hull ready now just waiting for the jagdpanther upper hull
Mud guards made from mud flaps off the back
Plus word of warning when cutting of the hull MG be careful of how much you cut as had to do load of rebuilding

Hey this looks really cool! Did they call this the crocodile? I know it's fantasy but I like all these paper panzers! Are you going to do the standard gun on it or you going to upgrade the gun somehow? Also how does the angle of the jagdpanther top fit with the King Tiger bottom is the angle about the same?

Gunners sights are behind the front hatch. If you're doing just one set of sites I'd go for the commander.s position though.

Nice attempt - I think I would have spent a little extra time sanding next time.

Good what if model.

Hi John, call me ocd if you like, but I’d be stripping everything off that hull, including the gun surround & sanding that filler off flat.
Or you could just paint it red & white and put a tree on it, lol

Will you be weathering and chipping the paint to tone it down a bit?

Big fan of the subject matter, please don't take this the wrong way, as others have noted a very good sanding would really help out.

This is looking really good so far. But I hope it won't hunt you later, to have omitted the sanding step. I know, that is tedious work. Have that as well right now. You might as well consider rearranging the foliage. At the moment it looks like a wig :P you could cover the area below the gun with logs or brqnches/bushes and add some bundles of high grass on the sides. I would assume that to look much more natural that way.

Great choice. I am sure you won't regret it. The paint job and weathering looks superb now. I don't know how much is due to the sanding, but you should try carefully to retain some of it. :thumbup:

Well done John, it looks a gazillion times better. You definitely won’t regret the extra effort!!
I like using softer fillers to make life easier.
