Default Jagdpanther

Hi
Im about to start a jagdpanther conversion from a pantiger ( im just waiting for the pantiger to get deliverd + a 1/35 jagdtiger model ) , and I seem to remeber a museum picture of a Jagdpanther with a bit different roadweels - looked like tiger I late model roadweels ....anyone else seen that picture ???? - I cant seem to find it again...... it sure would make the conversion a lot more easy if I just use thoose roadweels ....

I think that all the Tigers, Panthers (jagdpanther) switched to the late style wheels due to a lack of rubber.

I think this panther was one of the last built and a test for the Panther 2. Notice some details. The obvious late tiger steel wheels, BUT it also has tiger drive sprokets AND Tiger transport tracks on it. This vehicle itself shows how the germans were really reaching for parts to put together and standardize their vehicles toward the end of the war.

This is the jagdpanther at the Imperial War Musuem (London)

You can see that the front road wheel has been replaced to the late model wheel. I seem to remember that this was common practice as this wheel used to wear out faster then the rest.



Here's a close up of the front wheel

I would use your rebuilt wheels unless you can find pictures showing a Jagdpanther with late steel wheels. Also, you will need to get a pair of smaller idler wheels: [link=http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/HENG-LONG-TIGER-LATE-PRODUCTION-METAL-IDLER-WHEELS_W0QQitemZ230107832479QQcategoryZ44026QQrdZ1 QQcmdZViewItem]Panther Smaller Idler Wheels[/link]

Hi Jonas,

I am very interested in your conversion........I am doing a panther conversion and have cut the chassis up a lot to get a scale length and all the wheels etc. in the right position.....are you going to do the same?......I have also just ordered the scale panther wheels from Mato....hope they fit alright.................keep us posted on your progress and I will do like wise......

cheers

Hi - well I hought about cutting up the chassie, but im just making it a bit longer, moving the drivegears, the idlerweel and so on ..... I kow its a bit too wide, but its hard to make it correct without bying the correct tracks and roadweels - bit to expensive for me , so I have to stick with the Tiger ones .... rebuilding the roadweels and the drive weels + I bought the smaller Idlerweels so it should be Ok .... not perfect but Ok ....
I messured my 1/35 model and found that im making it correct length/hight but a bit too wide ( about 10% wider ) ... all due to the damm tiger tracks [sm=punching.gif]

yep...know exactly what you mean.......I have done everything to mine to get it to scale.....only exception will be the width due to the tracks as you say, and the turret, because I want the airsoft gun in place.....I have ordered my wheels from Mato and Tankzone are getting in the scale looking drive wheels for the panther using the Tiger width tracks so all in all the tank will be very close to scale and should look cool.........

Best of luck with yours

Cheers

Nice start so far!

It's great to see someone take on a project like this! The Jagdpanther (like all turretless tanks) is a big fave of mine and I'm sure yours will be nice when it's finished!

Hi CaptB, will there be enough room to house the airsoft mechanism?

Almost forgot - the hardest thing in the beginning was figure out how to make it easy to dissassemble .... just the 7 - 9 screws as before , and I think I got that right ...

Finally - thank god for the gluegun [sm=lol.gif] ....

The citadel roof will be lower than the top of the original turret, so I'm not sure if the airsoft unit will fit.

Hi Richard L,

I am building the Panther mark V with the angled hatches..........the airsoft gun is more or less the original HL although I have extended the gun barrel to the correct length.....I have been working on the gun lock mechanism and the hatch detail which I want opening so I can get at the switches....no under hull switches for me...all controllable from the top.......I'll post pickies soon when I have made more progress..........I think the airsoft gun will go in the Jagdpanther
....I will have a go at one of these in the near future.........

Cheers
