KaJaPa 105

This time, Iíd like to share some pictures of my latest project. It is the West-German Kanonenjagdpanzer, but with an L7 105 millimeter gun instead of the 90 millimeter gun originaly found on the tank. I got this idea when I searched for some pictures of the KaJaPa on the internet, and found a screenshot from World of Tanks showing the Kanonenjagdpanzer 105. This is a purely fictional concept, but I like the looks of it and it looks like a realistic idea. I converted a 1:35 Revell kit to make this tank destroyer in kit form. I hope you like it!

Very nice work, Jasper. I'm curious about what appears to be pieces of crossed tape on each side. Do those represent some sort of marking system for exercises?

Thank you Mark! Those crosses are the so called Feinddarstellung Kreuze. They are used to indicate OPFOR vehicles during excersises. I did make a mistake however, because those crosses are supposed to be red, meaning Iíll have to repaint the ones on my model. Yellow is used for aerial recognition, but not in the form of crosses. Regards, Jasper

Wow, that barrel sure would make concealment for ambushes difficult though the trade-off in increased range and accuracy might offset that somewhat. This search for greater lethality on this jagdpanzer is why they were all eventually converted to missile-firing. Hard to argue with a Milan-equipped tank killer. Interesting idea for a "what-if" even if it doesn't take that option into account.

It might have been a good idea to include the Leopard's sighting system too. The 'doghouse' from the Leopard 1 might have given it a bit more "UMPH" to the look of it. But GREAT idea! I only wish there was a good 'Kanonenjagdpanzer' in 1/72 scale. I love doing Cold War 'what-ifs'. Thank you for the inspiration!
