I was thinking of starting this kit next (Revells's re-issue of the DML kit). Anything I need to know such as problems, concerns, etc???? I will most likely get an aluminum barrel and a PE set for it, any suggestions on that too would be appreciated.

CMK Hot Barrels makes a nice 128mm barrel that comes with a resin manlet too. It is available at www.squadron.com for $9. I got one for an old Tamiya Hunting Tiger that I rebuilt.

I have decided to build the Tamiya M-1 Abrams for now until I can get all the after-market parts that I want to get for the JagdTiger. But thanks for the links everyone has sent on the JagdTiger, I have bookmarked the sites for future reference :-)
