Ok..

My entry in this build off is one of the conjectural vehicles that consisted of 8 very late Jagdtigers which made up an ad-hoc kamfgruppe/composite unit crewed by SS/WH members as part of 653's final push towards Strengburg - Austria '45.

My plan is to depict this vehicle as it would have appeared after a mad road dash to stem the soviet tide...its my intention to do one of the "Teddy Bear" mounts - James is doing another of these intersting vehicles "Sunny Boy".

Ive added the late towing pintle - piltz - and other late features..

Don't we spell it helmet? Is he a German guy I don't know? wink.gif

Nice effort mate - we just need Bailey to fire up his camera and get on board now and share his with us and the planets will finally be aligned...

Build 95% done...

Just a small update..

Build is now 95% complete...just the last stowage touches that are to be painted in situ to add...and its primer time. Some stowage will be left off and added prior to final weathering.
