Late Jagdtiger

This section is for builds that are not strictly Tamiya or Heng Long. For instance, replacing the electronics from a WSN or Matorro, or even a scratch-build.

Hi,
currently I am building a late Jagdtiger.
Specification:
- Parts for Hull from http://www.ludwigs-hobby-seite.de/
- Transmissions are partially from Modellspiegel combined with 21.5T Turnigy Sensored Brushless Motors and TORO TS-50 ESC
- Sprocket and Idlerwheel from Tamiya
- Torro Metal Roadwheels Set modiefied with double Ball-baering
- Metal Tracks from Impact

Pics:

For the attentive observer:
The base plate is glued in the wrong direction! 8O
That whould be a real fun to get everything apart an clean up and re-glue..... :wtf:
I have decided to close the holes later and to make new ones in the right place.

Image

For tests and adjustment with Tamiya Roadwheels:

Image

The Transmission Unit, early Version with Brushed Motors:

Image

After first Rollout:

With heavy Load:

Stay tuned....

yes, impressive 72 tons weight.
Jagdtiger was the strongest tank in the last days of the WWII .
Unfortunately he was not very reliable
Much of them are from their own crew have been blown,
because they remain with a technical defect or without fuel.
The 12.8 cm gun has a high range and a sherman tank could be destroyed near 4000m!

Great stuff when the first intervening hedgerow is only 400m away ;P. Tank build is looking great especially as you are including a working gun mount.

Looks bulletproof. :) How much does this monster weigh? Hmm...,With an Aeromate Tiger costing almost 4,000 Euros, I'm sure you could market your tank assassin- in kit format- for a tidy sum, if you want to. ;)
