Fellow focus pointers, with the aim of referencing a build of the new Tamiya Jagdtiger, I thought it would be a useful exercise to get together a quick reference list of all known Jagdtigers wearing callsign numbers ID'd in photos so far from both 512 and 653 to make it easy to pick one.

I've listed an assumed theoretical full strength of both units and have then just written "SEEN" next to those I already know of in pics.

But as you can see so far the "SEEN" ones are a pretty meagre list from both battalions. So I'd be very grateful if anyone could add any more (and/or even post scans of any new ones too?).

* Note I have taken the big liberty of completely guessing some of the possible callsigns as the most logical choices, but they may well be completely spurious or have just been cleanskins where the numbers weren't even worn. Plus I have only included callsigns that have actually been seen past the standard 3 vehicle platoon strengths and not assumed they all went to 4 and 5 vehicles where pics don't yet support it. Anyway I'll be very interested in any more info that can be added:
