Well gosh, sounds like a 'Forum' to me, and as Dennis said, it's all conjecture at this point until someone has the model in their hands! There is really very little info about how models get made, so peeps are curious!



Thank You, Nick!

What's wrong with a little bit of curiosity without having to "buy the farm" over it???

Dan, I put the freaking off topic emoji in my freaking post. I know it was off topic.

However molding came up in the conversation so a digression with some information about molding is relevant.


Blitzkit might be what I'm looking for if I am to remain in the hobby.

I did see a review of the Das Werks Panthers today, which appear to be unmodified Sprues from the Takom kit, and it is simply the interior that is missing. I would therefore expect the Jagdtiger will be made to Takom's usual standard with no simplification of the exterior.

So, much like any other Jadgtiger kit currently on the market, only newer? Id expect an interior offering at some point in the future then.

I don't see any reason why that couldn't happen!

I agree and that will be offered under the full Takom brand.

And you may see a few different ones from other "quarters" as well...

I don't like interior kits, and very complex tracks too.

Anyway, hope this one come with the correct barrel lenght.....
