I did wonder how long it would take for the 2016-2018 crop of Tiger IIs to become Jagdtigers.

I wonder what the compromises will be for this 'Blitz' line?

Jens Andrée They're all meant to be simplified, i.e. fewer parts, to make them easier to build.
Great for beginners to grab one of these kits instead of the dreaded 1975 Tamiya Panther Ausf. A which frankly is wonky as hell - sadly picked up by many beginners due to its low price.
These Blitz kits will be of similar price so if you want a low parts count this could be it!

Nigel Thanks, Jens. Yes, ISTR that from TMN. What I was hoping was that the recent crop of Tiger IIs would give us an updated Jagdtiger without the vagaries of 'simplification' (how is that implemented?).

Oh well, perhaps Meng will oblige! ;)

Jens Andrée Sadly I think we'll have to wait a wee bit longer for that updated - and detailed, Jagdtiger... Unless Takom plan to release it as a "proper" kit too? I've heard nothing in the grapevine sadly.
