Hi,
I would decided to build Dragon 1/35 Jagdpanther G1 late in my stash. I would like to use camo no:112 Jagdpanther belongs to s.H Pz.Jg Abt.654. I searched over the internet but cannot find any info about that Jagdpanther.
During my search, I leared that the storages (shovels, S hook or gun clearing tubes etc.) moved back of vehicles beloging of Jg.Abt.654. In the dragon's illustration, the storages are on side of the vehicle. I am a bit confused so could you help me getting more information about 112 Jagdpanther.

I'll check my sources if there are any pics of 112. In regards to the pioneer equipment, it was moved to the back of the superstructure, in production, on the G2 version. That's not to say variations weren't done in the field.

David Coyne ovr on Track Link did a blog on the Meng Jagdpanther G-1. When David does a blog he spends a huge amount of effort sharing his research. Go check out his blog: https://www.track-link.com/forums/site_blogs/36446 .

Thanks for the link and help. There are a lot of detailed information at the blog.I just saw a picture no:112 jagdpanther. View from rear of the vehicle and 3 soldier were stand up position on engine deck. All pioneer tools were moved back It seems to me that the vehicle had zimmerit. I am not sure,maybe I am wrong. The instruction does not say anything about the zimmerit which are needed

AFAIK all G1 jagdpanthers from S.Pzjg.Abt 654 had their tools and gun cleaning rod relocated to the rear. As for zimmerit if it's their G1 early kit (6458, 6494 and 6758) then yes it needs zimmerit. Their other G1 late kit (6393) does not need zimmerit.
