KO JagdPanzer Hungary

Hi! Back again, after moving to our new place i couldn't resist to open a box and build something. My hobby room isn't ready yet so i can't paint at this moment :-/

I decided to build the old Dragon's JP, a terrible kit but perfect for what i want. It had to made lot's of changes, cutting, sanding to create the right look besides the structure i made in the panzer plates.

I was inspired by a photo i saw from this knocked out JP in Hungery from the well know Mirko on ML.

picture Mirko Bayerl, ML forum.
Specs:
-Dragon's old command version Jagdpanzer kit
-Dragon magic tracks
-Alu barrel
-Trumpeter's Bergepanzer engine
-PE from the spare box and some scratch build stuff.

The build must represent the last fight for this JP that is already beaten up but still on the move until it is finaly knocked out..




Someone pointed out that the axels with missing wheels aren't correct, so i remove the mounting hubs and drill them out like the picture below (Thnx Eddy!)

Season Greetings!

Hi folks, i know there wasn't much to do at the AM blog. Moving to our new house took a lot of time and were still busy with it! Other stuff needs priority before i can unpack all my modeling stuff and settle in my new room. For now i picked up a box and do some minor work at the dinertable in the livingroom :)

Still got some models that need to be finished next year and i got myself a great project ( my build of the year as you may call it) a Dragon JagdPanther Late with a lot of AM stuff i collected trough out this year. I can't wait to start on this one soon :)



For now i wish you nice holidays with friends and family.  Respect to all who serving there country at this moment far away from home, i know the feeling, your not forgotten.!
