Dear All,

After very exhaustive weekend activities I found finally some time to work with Jagdpanzer.
I managed to make a little corrections and update to the Kugellafette and Saukopf mantlet.
I tried to correct the shape of Saukopf, I hope I caught it.
I grinded a little the lower edge and upper parts as well. I drilled four holes and medical needles were installed to imitate the screws securing the barrel.
Although not 100% correct this solution works fine to me as in 1:35 scale it resemles the tubes and screws well.
I worked with driver visor and made some weld seams around.
The best fun I had with photoetched "casting" numbers. Lovely, I almost had my eyes jumped out to this smallest details. Hope that after some Surfacer is applied the rough surface and crude detail will look just fine.
Again I kindly ask for comments and any suggestions and points of any mistakes noticed.





Cheers,
Kuba

Dear All,

Yesterday I managed to make a Flamvernichtern. The tube was made by cooper sheet, soldered. The exhaust pipe itself is an aluminium tube cut to proper lenght. The fittings inside is just a styrene strip. I based on real thing photos so there comes three strips inside the tube.
I have just realised, that the upper bracket by the tubes looked different on the vehicle which model I try to make so I will rework it.






If you see any inaccuracies or mistakes, please do not hesitate to point it out.


Best regards,
Kuba

Awesome job on the mantel, the casting numbers will look great when painted. Great idea with the syringe as securing bolts . And great work on the exhaust pipes as well, the inside fittings might be to tick but it looks great.

Your L/70 looks great, i especially like the exhausts. Don't forget the bolts where the upper and lower rear plates are joined together. It already looks great with the small welds, just like the real thing. Those casting numbers would have driven me crazy,or blind.I will be following this build closely.

Dear All,

Many thanks for your kind words and support.
Last night I made a gun travel lock. It's an aber photoetch reworked a little. To make it as Aber designed is possible but more dificult and the results may not be satisfactory.
I used some drilled styrene rods as a barrel holders, the spring is made of cooper wire and the axle of whole thing is again a syringe needle.
Entire item needs further cleaning and some carefull correction with a scalpel blade.
Apologize for the poor photo quality...this little cart has sucked all powers from me yesterday







Cheers,
Kuba
