JagdTiger Octopod by Rob-Cavanna JagdTiger Octopod by Rob-Cavanna
www.operationdragonslayer.com/

Sketchup model was created by :iconflaketom: back in 2010. Entirely his original design for OPDS. Kind of like the bigger meaner brother of the old Jagdpanther Hexapod mech.

I finally got around to giving this bad boy a much deserved coloring and finish.

Hey Rob! Love the Camo and the picture! Don't know how but really managed to show the massiveness of the thing!
Only leaves me to thank you for spending your time on it. :D

Thanks, Thomas. It has always been a fantastic model you made! I will eventually get some of those other oldies too. My work is slow in the summer, so I can finally do this stuff in the daytime. 

I was actually concerned that the massiveness wasn't coming across. Mostly on account of the grass being too tall. And could have cropped it even tighter -ala the elephant painting effect. 

I actually started off doing it in feldgrau, but then went this way. My theory was that the fairly simple superstructure would do well with a complex pattern (complex vehicles better off w/ simple camo). But I'm still wanting to try grey, maybe w/ different background.

about 3 days.... :P

Seriously, probably very slow, but perhaps more maneuverable than the tracked version.

More? oO Tracked version could pivot by spining tracks in diferenet directions, i think it is much faster :D

Maybe, but legs would be more precise and practical. A vehicle this heavy spinning both tracks in opposite direction would absolutely destroy the ground or road beneath it, you couldn't stay in one spot very long. This was always a problem for the Tiger ace Michael Whittmann, who balanced out the Tiger's slow turret rotation wby spinning the whole tank -after a few turns, the ground was so churned up, it could bog the wheels. A multiped wouldn't have this problem. 

The legs also allow a greater range of depression and elevation, not to mention lowering profile by going belly down.
