I am looking for a full -three view of this projected jagdpanzer. There is a side view in the Spielberger on Special Panzer but this is not enough to model the machine

thank you

I think I have, but can you post or pm me the side view or details of Spielberger on Special Panzer so that I am sure what I am looking for. I'm not sure of your designation, and I shall have to unpack another box of books before the shelves are ready!

Thanks . I try to scan it this WE. The machine is quite flat , not pyramid shaped like the other Porsche mini-panzer projects

that's the one I was thinking of. Same hull as yours , shorter gun (???) The idea is to convert the 1/72 Pegasus "Schwerer Kleine Panzer" using the same chassis.

thank you

Thanks for that picture, JCC. I guess its the leFH43 from the post I found?
Armament: 105mm MK (KwK) or 105mm PAW 100 or 105mm leFH 43 gun
The Russian SU122 was similar if I've remembered the desigantions properly? A version with 85 or 100mm high velocity or a howitzer.

Not sure , Smurf. the Ie 105 and PAW versions have "pyramid" type hull
PEGA_SWP_FIN2.JPG

PAW version , direct from the kit

PEGA_SWP2_ACT.JPG

Ie 105 version (conversion from kit) . As you can see hull is vastly different but chassis is the same. So my idea is to use the chassis with a scratch-built hull ...but for this I need a 3VD

You are right, JCC. I needed to read my own post a bit more carefully!
I noticed your picture is Hilary Doyle, though the text is German. Anything in one of the "Panzertracts" series? I still can't get at mine

Sorry Smurf , nothing in Panzer Tract ...the "pyramid-hull" Schwerer Klein Panzer (both Ie and PAW) so that's how I did my models ...but not the 255...

Hi JC,
actually the side view gives you the basis to do a front and top view.

Seeing as you will be using the chassis of SKP , the chassis establishes the width of the views and the side view establishes the height of the front view.
Taking it as a given that the upper hull armour is sloped at the same angle on all four sides generating the front view is a simple matter of drawing lines at the requisite angle.

Cheers, Jon

Thank you Jon !

I never take anything for granted when it comes to devilish german technology ... I have yet to see an asymmetrically slanted panzer ...but I would not be too surprised if I came across one !!!

"Professor Porsche's Wars" by Karl Ludvigsen (a great book) has a range of design drawings of the Type 245 proposals (conventional and "mini-tank") and the E25 tank destroyers.
