This new series and new kit from Takom:
Another Jagdtiger of the "Blitz" series. This one comes with accurate details and a reduced parts count. These kits are carefully designed to focus on fit and ease of assembly without compromising accuracy or detail. 

This kit of the Jagdtiger Sd.Kfz.186 Porche production (2 in 1) w/ Zimmerit from Takom features: 
Impressive looking and nice zimmerit pattern from the front. This is the second round of CAD images, so the brackets outside the guards have been fixed.
As int he real thing, the zimmerit coating goes up half way to the top of the casemate structure.
The zimmerit coating covers all of the laces that were coated on the real tanks, right down tot he mudguards.
For those that don't like a split down their barrel, the metal option is included.
The Porsche type suspension is able to move up and down as in the manner of the real tank.
The kit has minimal photo-etch included, just mech covers for the grilles on the rear engine deck. There are workable tracks included with this kit as apposed to the link and length tracks in previous kits.
