Some build instructions.

Image
Use the small triangle brackets to attach the side skirts

Image

Bracket for round hatch glues on

use this bracket to lock into place on hull

Image

Large hatch parts glue on the same way

Image

small view scope goes onto square hatch on the dark spot I put on it

Image

front clip I darkened the spots where these two parts glue on

Image

rear wheel takes the larger headed pin, there are two provided for the back wheels



More soon and if need any help just let me know.

Thanks for the instructions, Aracula!

How does the gun barrel mount inside the hull? There is a screw with nut and washer on it, but I can’t see anywhere that it’s supposed to be screwed into... Thanks again!

Gun barrel screws onto this part.

Really didn't need the ability to slide up and down but just affix in a location that suits you for barrel movement up and down.

Thanks Aracula! The gun barrel mount wasn’t in the upper hull section I got... Is it a separate piece? If so, I’ll look in the bags of parts tonight to see if it’s there and PM you if I need it.

Also, how are the L/70 gun conversion parts coming? Thanks again.

Great thanks! I still haven’t decided if I’m going to do the L/70 or L/48 variant, but want to have both parts just in case :wink:

Aracula, not sure what happened, however, none of your pictures of the Jagdpanzer assembly are showing up... Can you fix this? Thanks!

Thanks

Gonna sell it, needing to raise funds for the 429.00 amount for molding material. Gonna ask 230.00 for it as very limited amount out in the public as the kit did not go over good.

Aracula, your Jagdpanzer looks great 8)
I stalled on building mine, but your pics inspire me to get back into it!

BTW, do you have any spares for the gun lock part for the L/70 version? Thanks :D

Still a bit of work left to do, but my Jagdpanzer IV L/70 kit from Aracula is finally coming together now. The basic paint job is done and I just finished the decals. Next I’ll be sealing the decals and then onto the weathering, tracks, and final assembly.

I’m painting my Jagdpanzer in the markings of the vehicle tank gunner Johann Huber served in from the 7th Panzer Division in Hungary, 1945. This veteran gained some celebrity after he was featured at Dragon Expo DX05 in 2005. I only had the left side profile as well as pics from a couple full builds of the Dragon 1/35 scale kit to serve as references, so a lot of the camo patterns are conjecture. It was likely the Jagdpanzer had a late war hard-edge camouflage scheme, which presented the chance to try out the silly putty masking method. That actually worked pretty well!

More updates to come as I finish the project

Nice looking Jagdpanzer Tman, I like the hard-edge camo scheme
you've chosen.
