well if you allw me one comment, this dragon kit is not a real "late Jagdpanther" but a "late G1", last produced Dec 44, so this kind of exhaust pipe is not to be found on this tank ... nor are the tools supposed to be relocated to the rear unless your Jagdpanther is from 654 and then have the extra bin on the casemate rear left.

My mistake.
It was probably too early in the morning for me when I saw your post for the first time.
In fact I only noticed the wrong engine deck and idler ... then thought it was dragon.

I get like this at the end of the day, I can't spell, I leave words out and when I come back the next day it looks like a child has been using my login to write random comments, LOL.
Good to see you clarify what you were thinking, some of the big knobs elsewhere don't say boo if they make a gaff.

Nice work on the plate texture. Where these units successful as tank destroyers or were they just swamped into oblivion? I see a lot of them knocked out in photos.
Looking forward to your next update .

Looking good! I have this kit on the shelf and will be following your progress with great interest. Can you clarify again what if any corrections may need to be made to the kit parts?

Also, are those some sort of silicone or rubber caps on the axles?

those are rubber caps purchased at an auto parts store . makes it easier to add wheels after painting lower hull. i am referencing the placement of tools and hardware with photos found on internet of the mike gibb's jagdpanther at the shows in england.
