Gun and Mantlet
Suspension & Track
The Jagdpanther is not only an attractive-looking war machine, but it was also perhaps the most effective tank destroyer of WWII. A total of 392 Jagdpanthers (Hunting Panthers) were manufactured, each mounting an 8.8cm PaK43/3 main gun on a modified Panther chassis and hull. Production commenced in January 1944 and the first vehicles were issued to combat units in June. Although most served on the Eastern Front, a large number were collected and used in the Battle of Bulge in December 1944. Dragon has just released a 1/35 scale kit of the Late Production variant. Late Production vehicles can be identified by such modifications as a bolted mantlet collar, two-piece PaK43/4 gun barrel, single vision slot for the driver, revised roof for the fighting compartment, flash-suppressor exhaust pipes, and a cooling fan for the crew compartment heater.
Dragon’s model is bristling with a sensational level of detail. The kit is based on the hugely popular Jagdpanther G1 Early Production (Item No. 6458), but it has been modified with newly tooled parts to represent all the relevant characteristics of the Late version. The sophisticated curved shape of the gun mantlet has also been masterfully recreated. This new Jagdpanther variant has quite a different look to the previously released kit, and it constitutes a perfect subject for modelers building up a scene from late in WWII. This Jagdpanther is ready to do some serious hunting!
