Now I'm getting greedy..HL JagdPanth build

This section is to 'show and tell' about any customizing or re-vamping you have done (or are doing) to a Heng Long tank.

Mmmmm...Not finished the Tiger yet, saw this and couldn't resist....

Previous owner started, so lot of work already done, Early Jag, need to do the mantel mod but much is already done for me. Needs upgrading to 2.4 innards and I might change the recoil unit over, but we'll see..It's on hold until the Tiger's done anyhow, but I've just pinged an order into Dave ready to get started...

More than one project at once is what keeps the mojo flowing. And the JP is a great topic to work on :thumbup:

Thanks lads, awaiting some reference bits but I know I've gotta scratch build the rear tow hook, and mug Dave for a set of the early four pipe exhausts....

Hey there, you have already done a lot of mods. Also on the gun mantle you cut the bulb. Now, the shield is still a bit off in shape. You might think about resculpting. That is straight forward with for instance apoxie sculpt or something like that and really improves the overall look.

That's the next job Soeren, few mill off the top of the mantle & reshape it somewhat. I've seen the other posts, this was a work in process at a price I couldn't resist! I've a load of bits on the way, plus a couple of reference books to sift through, I'll be looking a it being a post D-day Normandy/france based Jagd, luckily the Imperial War Museum isn't a million miles away from my work, so I'll be able to nip down and look at the early they have there whenever I need some inspiration.

Hi all, apologies for not updating in a while, life and other rubbish has taken over, however the Jagd & the Tiger are both sat in a fetching red oxide undercoat awaiting me getting my finger out and top coating them! pictures soon as I get a chance and get cracking!

Nice purchase, was the zimmerite applied by previous owner? Thinking about it on my JP but not sure yet, mines a G2 whereas yours is a G1? I’ll be looking at the JP at the Tank museum for reference and looking at PanzerTracts book too - as well as your link above for detail. Panzerwrecks books for unit tool placements and camo too.
Looking forward to update on this JP. Looking great already.

A familiar story, Cashy: firstly, the hopping excitedly from build to another... :D and, secondly; real-world needs beginning to impact on the fun (Jobs, relationships...even food :lolno: :/ )
That's why there are builds that span years here, however, so no worries about recent progress.
Some projects are 'perma-builds', in the sense that they're unlikely ever to be finished because. For some slightly obsessive modellers, new 'tweaks' have a habit of popping up, just when the 'last' lick of paint was about to be applied... :) ...

Hi Sinj, yep mines aiming to be a G1, previous owner did most of the zim, I've finished it off and remoulded the mantlet accordingly.
Mine is going to be a late '44 pz abt654 example, already got the decals sorted from peddinghaus
