PostSubject: Next Project; New Tiger I or Convert HL JP to IR?   Next Project; New Tiger I or Convert HL JP to IR? Icon_minitimeSun Aug 05, 2012 9:30 am

I m looking at another tank project, likely beginning in Nov. (not that I am wishing the summer away, I was just getting to like it Wink )

The tank would be converted to IR with an SLU, regardless of the choice. It would also get 3:1 gearboxes. All markings to be stencilled.



Option One: Tiger I

My plan was to pick up a new Tiger I at the Toronto Hobby Show in Nov. (if Mato is there, if they are, as some of you know, prices are good there).

The Tiger would be done up in Abt. 506 colours. (love the emblem on the storage bin)

Option Two: Jagdpanther

A re-fit of my existing, neglected airsoft JP, converting to IR with all the stuff I listed above.

Considerations;

- I have not used a turretless tank in IR club battles, it may be frustrating?

- As most Can Am people know, my speciality is east front panzers (thought I am not an expert in them); due to the chaotic conditions in January 1945 when JP's were first deployed in the east, there is not much solid historical information on the paint scheme for them; I am not a hard and fast rivit counter but I do like some authenticity.

As it is now;

I don't know if this one is authentic;

I do have to ask myself, which would I most enjoy running over Captain America with at a Can Am meet??? Twisted Evil

The Jagdpanther would be different option out on the battlefield , just sit back and snipe them as they approach.

Remember the SLU's speed reduction is way different then the DBU. With the SLU you have full speed until you lose half of your hit count, which I believe the Jagdpanther is 9 or 10 hits.
In my case I usually roll or fall into ditch before I lose have my hits anyway. Very Happy

I would like to make my Jagdpanther battle ready, but at the moment it's being used as a trainer tank for my girls.
Trying to recruit them while their still young, before they start chasing boys. Rolling Eyes

I am currently leaning towards the JP, I have the tank, its different and its not like I don't have some turret tanks Wink

I took a look inside the JP this evening, it would be like tossing the SLU in a barn compared to the Panther G.

I am thinking of a repaint in this scheme;

"Rivetcounter" on RCU says it is actually an accurate, later war JP scheme.



.....and, to my knowledge, Captain America hasn't been run over by a JP, yet Laughing (Sorry Captain Action, I just can't help myself)

New thought, the old "Hunting Panther" doesn't look too bad right now.

It is in authentic camo for the Lake Balaton Offensive, 1945 right now.

Maybe I'll just fit it out for IR, install 3:1's and do a bit of cosmetic work and call it good Very Happy

It looks good Glen.
Have you ever thought of adding stowage to you tanks, for that extra personal touch?

Yes, perhaps a fall or winter project.

Right now, I am painting "dollies", (sorry, figures Wink ) and planing out the JP conversion.

Stuff to do on the Jagdpanther, there's quite a bit even without a re-paint;

Lower Hull

- Suspension Spring Upgrade. purchase and install

- Switch removal, fill and blend in paint

- Make ESC Mount in the interior

- Cut away surplus posts and internal feature and smooth out

- Cut new opening for the new battery plug

- 3:1's, purchase and install

- Fit SLU components, purchase, once new shipment arrives


Upper Hull

- Install on/off switch in the rear superstructure hatch

- Make and fit receiver mount in the loaders hatch

- Airsoft gun, cut down and strip to fit flash, purchase HL Upgrade Flash

- Remove HL antenna mount, fill, bodywork and blend in paint

- Make and fit removable emitter system to barrel


General

- repair any finish damage from the above described stuff

- weather a bit more

- look at adding "sores" to the back deck as a long term addition.


I probably missed a few thingd but that is enough for now Wink

An internal picture of the Jagdpanther, I have printed the locations for the various bits and pieces inside the lower hull.
