i'm not too familiar with this tank design, but usually the top peice is a bit smaller and is sitting on another level, but it looks like you are modeling the way u see the reference pics. it looks on point right now.

Well, this is not a tank, this is a tank hunter, designed to blast a tank at very long distance.

So, there's no turret spinning around the base.

you can find info at www.panzerlexikon.com

I love it i tried ages ago to complete a german wespe tank and failed , but you have done very well.
Id love a copy of the file so as i can see how you have modelled the tank.
well done

Thanks foo1971, i have not detailed yet the rear part and built the treads.

Why did you fail making the Wespe. You didn't have good image references ?

I rendered it using Mental Ray but i don't know how to make the rendering "smooth" (fuzzy shadows and s.o) Any help welcome.

new here but to make fuzzy shadows, try lowering the D-Map Resolution or lowering the D-Map Filter, or Both (hope i'm right)

Your TANKHUNTER wins points with me

im not going to push you around //shove*shove//
but im shure if you take a bit of dirt and throw it over your TH
then it will push up the realism...maybe even a change in scheme

*sorry*
uhm....forget what i said if you dont want to.......
but it's only one mans opinion
otherwise your TH Jagdpanzer kicks some wholesome Poly@ss
**** 5ive stars and three cheers!
