Response to Yes, but...


Hi thanks for your albeit slightly confusing post (which for future reference we'd prefer you use your real name on)...

Now not quite sure what you are saying here? Firstly Trumpeter hasn't actually even made a 1/35 Jagdtiger yet - only a 1/72 and a 1/16 one currently in planning stages and secondly the one I've used isn't short at all??

I've used the new c.2010 Tamiya kit in this build and the Dragon kit c.1990s on the other - both of which are dimensionally correct for a JT with the right lengthened hull, so afraid you are way off there on both counts suggesting that its a Trumpeter kit and the wrong length??

All I can think is you are crossing your wires with the ancient original Tamiya kits of the Tiger II and JT from the '70s which apparently split the difference and used the same hull making the Tiger II too long and the JT too short?

Anyway hope that clears up your confusion.
