PostSubject: HL Jadgpanther IR Conversion   Sat Feb 21, 2015 3:17 pm

This is the airsoft JP that I received for Christmas in 2012.

It is now set up with a Clark and a Tamiya receiver.

It still has the HL stock gears, I would eventually like to replace these with 3:1's if I like battling with the JP and can get some.  Getting 3:1's to fit the interior profile of the front plate slope and shape is tough, the types that fit the Panther G don't clear the interior surfaces of the upper hull of the JP.

I do have a complete spare set of HK gearboxes (long shaft) to drop in if it "eats" the present set of cast gears.

I have tested the emitter, one of those that Curtis sells, it has very good range and a narrow beam, so it can't wipe out the whole field with one shot.












I have made a shield for the Tamiya receiver to go with our decision to allow blocking of the front of the receiver.

It is sheet aluminium with magnets to attach to the metal screws in the top of the receiver.

I cannot take credit for the idea, I think this should be referred to as a "Strato Shield".

Thanks, I have weathered it up more than I usually do.

The pictures are a bit dark.  I thought it would be lit up from reflection off the snow, but I guess the overcast stopped that.

I had this thing parked for 2 years, thought it was time it was set up for IR.

Looks cool, the camo has a nice worn in look. Nobody expects you to be tossing mud on your builds just yet Glen, we understand this is a big step for you Razz Hehehe

Is this after a specific vehicle? 

Sharp looking shield too!

It is about as specific as I could get for a JP.

I have found it difficult to locate much 100% complete and accurate details on JP camo and markings.  Late war records and photos are more limited on all of the tanks and seemingly worse for JP's.

This one is from a bit of data attributing it to operations in Hungary in 1945.

I would be interested in knowing what the camo was on the JP's used by Hermann Bix's unit, but the accounts don't mention any details down to that level.

His (Hermann Bix) unit was re-equipped with the Jagdpanther tank destroyer. On 4 November 1944, near the town of Dzelzgaleskrogs, Bix ambushed a Soviet tank formation. For periods of the battle he operated alone and destroyed 16 Soviet tanks. From January to May 1945, his unit was caught in the Courland pocket. During these two months Bix destroyed 75 tanks in 61 Battle Days. He was awarded the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross on 22 March 1945 and before the end of the war he was named an officer cadet.
In 1956 he joined the Bundeswehr and served until 1970.

So Glen in the spirit of Bix's most impressive record, the senario I see for when you are using this JP is that you will be taking on everyone else on the battle field

OK

But only if i can have an emitter that shoots, in scale, like an 8.8 cm Pak 43.  Wink


Meaning I could take out just about anything on the field from 180 to 200 feet away.  Laughing

The Jadgpathers are great looking tanks, it'll be nice to some more out on the field.

Yes, they are and it will be interesting to see how this one does.

I thought it was too good to leave on the shelf as an aisrsoft.
