Gary Elmes sent this link to a PDF book by IPMS Stockholm on Braille scale modelling. "If you go to their site (link below) and hit the the "Braille Scale Modelling" link it should download a 16 page book. The link above it seemed to be broken. Yes it is in English!"  http://www.ipmsstockholm.se/home/webbtips-braille-scale-modelling/

The JagdTiger btw is the one currently on display at Bovington.

The tracks on the Tiger-B, showing the blown barrel, are those now fitted to the other Tiger-B found at Haustenbeck and which with the single link tracks, is also now at Bovington.

The E-100 regretfully was scrapped, same goes for the Panther I guess and most if not all of the Iserlohn JagdTigers.

And indeed, the agility of these huge and heavy machines is very apparent in these videos. It really denounces the big and lumbering slow moving, bunkerlike behaviour that is often attributed to the Tiger-B and JagdTiger.

Also, the JagdTiger fitted here with the Porsche suspension, was providing a slightly less stable ride than the original torsion bar suspension. To see it rumble around like that, and especially, the 360 turn, is quite a feat.
