This model was the final Jagdtiger finished in the set of five. I previously posted the green Jagdtigers and the Winter Jagdtigers. This model is the command tank for the company. On the back I added two Fallschirmjager tank riders from the King Tiger box. This model is part of a commission for the same client as the Winter King Tiger and Desperate King Tiger I posted a few months ago. In total, he will have a pretty formidable company of big cats!
I experimented with using a dremel to remove details from the hull. I used a round sanding bit to quickly remove the tools and track link holders from the side of the resin model. The dremel made quick work of removing the details. The challenging part was controlling the dremel. I may try to find some very high grit dremel sanders to allow for more precise work. It was quite liberating to make such large changes on a model.
This model was a lot of fun to paint. It was fun to work on the red oxide modulation on the large side panels of the model. It was a challenge to add depth to the colour without making the model too pink. I'd be interested to try some of the various sets for modulating Red Oxide Primer but don't want to invest the cost of the paint set in something I do so infrequently. For this model I used Vallejo Model Air Hull Red, Mahogany, and Sand mixed with Mahogany.
I know that this model will not be to everyone's taste. It was fun to paint and was really neat to try some more detail work. I hope you've enjoyed this series of Jagdtigers. I'm making progress on my panzergrenadiers and will hopefully have them finished two weeks (ahhh!!!) from now. Which Jagdtiger do you like the best? Let me know what you think in the comments. Thanks for visiting.
