Herr Humpy, one has to take into account that I watch 2-3 hours of TV per week this gives me the time to build things

The Tiger has taken a back seat for most of summer while I concentrated on other projects; this is a blowtorch for the crew heater, this was used to pre heat the coolant before they started the engine.

This was supplied by my old mate Lee Sellers at Newthorpe models, the only thing it need now is the decal with operational instructions anyone know where I could get one?

Thanks for that lads but I can assure you that it’s most defiantly 1/6 scale

Have a look at the following picture and think what I have done when I get a bit more spare time I will post the other pictures.

Last month I added more detail to the interior this was planned some time back along with other details that will be added over winter.

The driver’s seat was purchased from Panzerworks in America this is made from black resin strange colour but works very well and if you do rub through the paint who’s to tell the radio operators seat was scratch built along with the back rest
Image
The next job was to select 2 dolly’s for this I used 2 of the older type ones with the early head sculpts as these would hardly be seen in the tank then came the fun part of cutting of one leg each so they could fit with the motors in place, Robert don’t look.
Image
Image
Image
Once a leg was amputated it was time to dress them in appropriate uniform along with head phones and throat mikes plus some maps, no doubt this will be used by others in the future
Image
Image
Image
A through the hatch shot with internal lighting no doubt this will also be used
Image
And some internal shots showing the internal lighting along with instrument lighting

More detail to come over winter.

Le Riv, what do you know about the inside of JagdPanthers? :lol:

Seriously, lovely work. I particularly like the illuminated dials, class.

It's got more front than Katie Price, and that's not easy! Better looking in my opinion, that wouldn't be hard but we digress.... nice work Le Riv :)

Thanks for the appreciation, I have always said that a lot more can be done with 1/6 than most dare venture, I will take some pictures of the inside next time I have the lid off which will be over winter first I have another project to be done.

Herr Humpy, I don’t know a lot about Jagdpanther internals yet but I’m more than willing to have a look next time I’m near one, I do have some detail pictures of the top of a Jagdpanther G2 with casting marks and such, there may be pictures on the net of the SdKfz Foundation Jagdpanther internals plus there is the one at the Imperial War Museum with the sides cut away you could get down there with your camera.

Le Riv,

I was only joking mate. Where would I put the two 8inch base speakers :lol: Let alone the Megawatts of battery power!

Humpy

PS I've got plenty of pics of the inside of the SdKfz don't you worry about that! I couldn't get into the drivers position (too big, not fat, well that as well but it wasn't designed for a six foot driver!) but I got everywhere else :D
