This I'm going to do between now and April 2017 and along side this I'm also going to be doing my HOOBEN ELEFANT Which I'm looking forward to getting started with its trick "NIGE SUSPENSION" Anyway back to the Jagdpanther, I will strip it down and replace anything that needs doing maintenance wise, then repaint it all with a new camo ( mountains of research to do) which started a few weeks ago, bits I know I'm replacing Allready,
1. Complete set of new TRACKS as these are heavily warn ice cleats have long warn off.(I'm Just fussy)
2. Replace all the ageing speakers 2x 8" subs and 2x mid range speakers. ( these are still ok just a cone damaged
3. Fit a decant smoker unit.
4. Fit working convoy lights.
5. Buy another figure that will be sat on the rear hitching ride , this will be static not like the other 2.
I think that's it for now , This may well be the last pic of it like this you will ever see I just hope I can do this amazing Jagdpanther some justice for a man that was an amazing modeller to say the least, I'm planning on some way of keeping the origanal identity of who built it by having the name HUMPYS LEGEND on the tank somewhere which may take a lot of thought I just hope I don't upset anyone doing this tank and builder an injustice.
Kind regards Andy
It's yours and needs to be how you like it. Do it.
As to a decent smoker, have a look at the super smoker 4 , available from Australia ( mine took less than a week) on ebay most of the time. I've got two in the Chally and they really pump it out.
The tank is now almost stripped right down, I've repaired the light damage to the upper hull, and have given that 4 Coates of red oxide, and 2 Coates of Dark Yellow and is now put in the spare room away from the workshop so I can work on the lower hull.
On sripping down the lower hull I've found it needs 5 new tyres and 3 wheel bearings and 1 new motor as its almost seized but I'm going to replace both, So it should soon be as good as it was the day Stewart finished it.
Parts to be replaced
3 wheel bearings
2 sub 8" speakers
2 tweets 2" speakers
1 smoke unit
List to date 15/11
It’s your tank but the Germans stopped displaying the Hakenkreuz flag on vehicles after the battle of Kursk, a Jagdpanther G2 from late 44 early 45 wouldn’t have this.
