Jagdpanzer IV./L70 - Tamiya
 
Started the Tamiya Jagdpanzer IV this weekend. Seems to be a nice, clean build (as expected from Tamiya) and to make life more difficult, I ordered an Eduard upgrade and Schürzen set which is yet to be delivered.
Small progress this weekend, lower hull details. Amazing weld seams, and casting texture and 100% perfect fit. I am just shocked. Positively, of course.

Jack Block
 
Not much of a progress. Rear wall is almost ready, some PE chains missing. I made a balsa jack-block instead of the kit one.

Upper parts
 
Upper half test-fit shows two things: the lovely shape of this vehicle :) and the perfect fit of Tamiya parts.

Also started to clear up the rear-deck. Cutting and filling to enable the PE parts to fit...

Wonderful work and good pictures :-)

Friulisation
 
My first ever Friul track assembled and test-fit. It sits perfectly and looks like after the first try:

Looked a bit too tight (though wartime photos show this kind of tight tracks sometimes) so I added one more link. Now it's much better:

Now continuing on the other side and the tools upgrade on the rear deck... After years of pause in modelling I'm surprised on my speed. ;)

cheers

Now she starts to look like a naked Jagdpanzer IV...

A great kit and some new found enthusiasm are powerful motivators...

Press on!

Whats up with all the filler on the engine deck? Is this where the tools go? Looking good and Friul tracks are sooo nice.

Thanks for kind words, guys!
Yes, the fillers are for the holes for the original tools. I'll upgrade them with some PE and there is no need for the holes anymore. Currently working on the Schürzen and then the tools - I hope to reach the "primer phase" this year.

That's what I thought. I too have this kit and will probably do the same thing when (and more importantly IF) I ever get to it. I like the looks of the Jagdpanzer L/70. I have a few of the Dragon ones as well.
