Well, serious ADD here. working on all sorts of different stuff this is my  Jadgpanzer 4  Hasegawa, I got one of those Kagero books with the decals, and I am doing one that doesnt have the back armor panels.    metal fenders stolen from a resin kugelblitz, and a bunch of detail work.  Revell germany tracks.  You can really see your mistakes in the pictures.  cast texture is liquid glue and a crappy brush to stipple.  SU85 is S models but I think I will do this one as a captured tank.  trying to scratch the fuek tank holders. antennas are E guitar string.  also good for grab handles!!  I replaced the rear grill with Dragon piece.  the s model pretty great for a fast build and having the center fin for the tracks eliminates the super wide track guides...

These are nice Tom, I like the work you've done on the Jagdpanzer, like the texture on the armour and adding the P/E fenders, looks great.
Is that a Dragon figure sitting on the JP?
The SU-85 looks good too with the grab handles changed to wire, turned barrel and Dragon parts. 
Cheers Tim

Both models look good (although I like the jagdpanzer as a subject more). I like how you've selected vehicles from two different nations that served the same role in their respective armies - provides interesting points of comparison. Look forward to more...

Very nice, and some neat work on the scratch-built bits. The Su-85 looks well improved (unlike Kevin, I prefer the Su-85 & 100 to the Jagdpanzer IV), and nice realistic touches added to the Jagdpanzer.
Cheers,
Mark
