  1. Hi Pals. Considering this model finished, here is the final result that I have obtained. A nice kit, without a multitude of hyper-fractionated parts, but that maintains a very good level of detail, more than enough for me, I don't forget that at least I do this to enjoy it, and to get something that is nice to see. , not something that is frustrating due to its added difficulty, on the other hand nonsense, because not because of many little pieces, a kit is necessarily better. I don't remember big problems with it, if anything the front adjustment, nothing that can't be fixed by any average modeller. It includes a jig for assembling the tracks, but I haven't used it, the tracks are large and easy to manipulate, plus the saggy is "one line", as it does not have central rollers, it is very easy to finish them. Includes a small set of PEs, more than enough for me. Copper wire for tug cables. The decals are somewhat thick and tend to cause silvering, so you have to keep this in mind. The initial idea was to do something similar to the boxart of the model, a tritone camo, but after trying it, I didn't like how it was turning out, so plan B was a sand color, thinking of a vehicle that had little use. With a primary red primer (Plan C...lol), I dressed the beast, with sand, and modulating it, then, the typical weathering processes, with layers of acrylic, oils, and pigments. I have added vegetation on the lower sides of the hull, on the tracks, although I don't know if it will be seen, and some fallen leaves at random points on the model. Some helmets also on the spare tracks, from different sources, hence the somewhat different size and color, because my idea is that if all the soldiers are different, why not their helmet size and a different tone...? . In the end, I have not added the skirts, because when I put them on, the silhouette of the model changes a lot, and I like it better without them, after all, with the Kingtiger Henschel (published) that I did some time before, the same thing happened to me, more pieces for the box of spare parts...lol. Thank all those who have commented, supported, and been interested in the model, much appreciated, hoping that they have enjoyed it as much as possible and find it useful and inspiring for any future planned project. Many thanks for watching and comments as always. Cheers and TC Francis.👍 A couple of black and white photos... And one of the model (the one above) with artistic composition "What if..." Somewhere in Europe. final days of the confict....
  2. Hi Pals, Again taking up the hobby, this time I have opted for something a priori simple. It is about the JAGDTIGER Early from TAKOM, from their "Blitz" range, which seems to be somewhat simplified compared to other kits, but I see that it is a very complete kit (without interiors), with many small details and some beautiful moulds. It also includes a jig for the tracks, which I think will make my always tedious work easier... In principle, I hope it is OOB, perhaps add an antenna, and some handle that due to position/fragility is a candidate for breakage in the handling process... Soon I will be adding progress. Thanks for the interest. Cheers and TC Francis,👍
