Hi again, some advance in the holed Jagd.

After the assembly I gave some texture to the hull with the "Tamiya cement technique". I used cleaner for PVC pipes instead of Tamiya Thin because is a little stronger and dries faster. And it is cheaper, free indeed because I took it from a friend. :P
After that I sanded the surface, of course, with a 1000 grain sandpaper or so.
I don´t know if this texture is useful at this scale but I wanted to try.


The detailing is made with spare PE pieces, styrene and some copper wire. The usual stuff.


The idea is that some time after the Jagd was knocked the local villagers were taking everything useful (or not so) as a souvenir.
That is a nice excuse to avoid painting the tools, fire extinguisher, jack, spare tracks, etc.
Of course, the bad news was that I had to detail the empty clasps and cramps.


This Jagd is intended to be a late version (spring 1945) so the tools location is different from the Tamiya kit. Yes, I know, those tool boxes are too intact.


The Achtung Panzer #4 has really nice drawings with the differences of the Jagdpanther variants depending on the fabrication date. It was really helpful.


To move the wheels suspension I took the easy way.


And thus...ready to paint!
