    Richard, I'm going to say no to the Elefant. As much as I'd like to see it built, and although it is technically a tank destroyer, I'm looking more for the types that were converted from existing vehicles.


    The Hetzer will still be a nice build :)

    This SIG has been doing my head in. I was convinced I had a Jagdpanzer IV in the stash but when I searched for it, I couldn't find it. I did however find a STUG I didn't know I had.


    Then, for a couple of days, it has bugged me as I remember starting to put Zimmerit on something. Thinking it must have been my Panther, I let it go.


    This afternoon I went in the shed for something and saw the box for the panther. Wondering how well I had managed the Zimmerit trial, I dug it out to have a look. Nope! All pristine and unopened. Had a further dig about and at last found the elusive Jagdpanzer and yes, this is the one I attempted Zimmerit on.


    Not a bad kit, comes with a bit of photo etch and an aluminium barrel. Indi link tracks as well. I did wonder if it was a re box of some other kit but, according to Scalemates, it came out around 1994, was rebooted by Zvezda and then by Testors before Italeri added extra and new parts and a new box in 2011.


    I must admit, I thought I was going bonkers, not that finding what I thought was there means I am not, but it helps.........


    I appreciate that having started it excludes it from the SIG but here it is anyway.

    I believe that the Zimmerit trial was Milliput and the Trumpeter roller type tool.

    Stick it in the SSIG Graham! Robert has a Tamiya L/70 that's partially built and I said that was ok.


    It's only an unofficial GB so my word is law ;)

    These are they Monica. You get rollers and rocker types in different sizes. To be honest, this was the first and only time I used them. I also have a set of the Tamiya blade type that I will try on my next Zimmerit project. I will have to finish this one with the same tool type to ensure continuity. But I think, from what I have seen, the blade type work very nicely.


    The rollers are good for a full length section, the rocker/stamp type are good for small places. This is a bit thick on this model but as removing the Milliput would possibly do damage, I will finish it off this way.
