Seeing all these inspiring Jagd's has got me motivated to finish one of these.

Is it too late to pull the beast out and continue on .

Looking at all the marvelous work you have all done has given me the incentive to
finally get in and finish one .

This went back in the box 6 months ago and nothing more ,.....until now.

Its never too late to start!! Well I'm sure at some point it will be too late to start, but we're not there yet!

Great progress so far, have you picked a vehicle, whats the plan?

That's great news.Thanks Sam

No specific vehicle as such .Mainly due to lack of reference material .
The colour plates Tamiya provided in the kit look good although the colour will be lot more subdued.

I did like the earlier post from James with the coloured image of the Jagdtiger in the dark green and touches of red primer under the fenders.
it will be a combination of the 2.And the MG on the rear deck .

I liked the MG on the back of your Jagd, it's a real work of art.

Hi James,

No worries about not making it to QMHE this year.Have been head down building models .

Didn't get the Jagd out straight away because I had some big #ss Famo sitting in the way .

Pushed this off to the side and now back into the JAGD .
Managed to get some work done this weekend .I may not make the deadline but watching all these builds have moved me to crank it back up.
A brief start .

Noway as good as what's been shown but I'm getting there .

Cheers
Michael

Hey Mike,

Great looking build on the go there...like the figures as well.
Will all pop out when the paint hits it.

Best.
