Jentz  & Doyle's latest Panzer Tracks Jadgpanther says the box was a sPzAbt 654 unit modifcation , not the 1st time in the last 30 ( ? ) years they have corrected themselves . There seems to be new info coming out every year for German stuff  , every month it seems for Russian WW2 stuff  ::).  JP production : Dec 43 - 1 , Jan / Dec 44 - 226 , Jan / May 45 - 198 . Second driver's periscope plugged than removed from production in Feb 44 ( so how many built with 2 , and how many have plug visible before redesigned for one ? )Pistol ports removed as well ( don't think I've ever seen any JP with ports , early Panther D , yes ) The jack was moved from lower rear hull  ,like on Panther D to vertical between exhaust pipes  when tow lug was added mid lower rear . Sorry can't find any photos of 1st jack stowage on JPs

Been so busy with preparing the supporting material for our next batch of releases, almost everything is ready...

Had a quick snapshot of the Jagdpanther prototype while running through the studio today!  Will post the full batch of photos soon!



Enjoy!
;)

Two variants of the Jagdpanther prototypes being shown here...
The final kit should enable you to build early / mid / late variants of your choice!





























Enjoy!

I will probably end up getting just one as i very much doubt id ever play more than 1 in any game.

However, since when has that stopped me....

Any update on possible release date for the JP?
I see that Q4 has been announced, so maybe drop the JP into the Q1/18 release.
Cheers

It is still in the mould making queue.  Don't think it will make it to Q1/18 releases...  :(

OK, Thanks for the info.
I am sure Q4 and Q1 will have other tempting items.

I'm with Jaeger on this one. "I want a Jagdpanther now."
