Hello all I'm going to do my first armour WiP here with a Jagdpanzer I recently started. My modelling budget is very restricted, which means I am usually stuck building 'basic' 70s armour kits. So I was very excited to spot this in the fantastic sale box as Halifax Modeller's World. Let's just say it was a real bargain! I believe it is a re-box of the Dragon kit, from what I've seen on ScaleMates. As the box advertises, this is an 'Early Production' Jagdpanzer IV L 48. The kit seems really good to me. It is correct in most of its details for the specified variant. However, I believe all Jagdpanzer IVs produced from the first in January 1944 to September 1944 were coated in zimmerit, which this kit is missing. Creating zimmerit will be one of the tasks for me to make this an accurate replica, then. The kit is also missing side skirts, although many Jagdpanzer IVs didn't have these attached, or the skirts fell off. The kit also has some intimidating tracks... I know it'll get good 'sagging' but I'm dreading the monotonous day I build these! I've done some research into my vehicle. I'm one of those modellers who likes to build a specific vehicle from a historic photo. I enjoy the research and 'detective work' involved in working out which variant my kit can build and what details I need. To me, replicating a specific historic vehicle adds an extra challenge into the mix and gives value to the finished product. I've got nothing against any other type of modelling, though! It's always hard to interpret what and where a historical photo depicts. I have concluded that this vehicle was produced in May 1944, and is photographed in Vaiges, Normandy, where I believe it broke down. I think it was part of the 12th SS Panzer Division's Panzer Jäger Abteilung 17. If you are interested in my reasoning, I've included it in a spoiler below. I'd appreciate any comments because I've made plenty of assumptions and would love better evidence! Photograph 1 Photograph 2 Photograph 3 Photograph 4

A couple of models for my Canadian cousin Evan, he was supposed to have taken these with him when he left four years ago, but they got broken while his dad was packing.....Anyhow, he's back and still well into his tanks, so I've repainted them for him: Italeri 1/72 Jagdpanzer IV (This model's been a test-bed for everything from freehand airbrushing to zimmerit by hot-screwdriver! ). Unidentified Diecast 1/72 Ferdinand (Don't blame me for the build on this one.....The guy who fitted the wheels must have been drunk! ).
