Little about history:

The Jagdpanther (German: “hunting panther”) was a tank destroyer built by Nazi Germany during World War II based on the chassis of the Panther tank. It entered service late in the war (1944) and saw service on the Eastern and Western fronts. The Jagdpanther combined the very powerful 8.8 cm PaK 43 cannon of the Tiger II and the characteristically excellent armor and suspension of the Panther chassis, although it suffered from the general poor state of Germany in the later part of the war, which resulted in small production numbers, shortage in spare parts and poor crew training.

About kit:

Models of “trumpeter” always very accurate and of good quality. This model is not exception. Kit is very easy-going, and does not require any modifications. Aside from a small amount of putty.

It is a pity that in 1:72 scale of Trumpeters sets do not have photo-etched parts.I think the bars on the engine compartment would be nice.

About painting: as in my past work, a little later I’ll show all the steps in a histogram. Like we Slavs saying “Better to see once than 100 times to hear” )
