Nice, any variant based on the 38(t) chassis listed on your reference book? I like it. I guess it's a good thing I passed on my Marder IIIM for the Tank Destroyer build, huh?

I was actually flipping through that book last night. I'm totally in!

Sal - You have the sIG 33/1Gw38(t) Ausf H, I believe. At any rate it would definitely qualify. I hope Dragon comes out with the Ausf M version someday, although it could be an interesting scratch project.

@Matt
Yup, almost every variant just the Waffentrager are short maybe because most of them were just paper projects.

@Sal
Of course, every version is allowed.
That's a great choice, got thatone too with a massive Griffon PE set (too much)..

@Nathan
They have both versions Nathan.
Here's the boxart

I'm interested. I haven't too long ago built a Tamiya Marder 3. I wouldn't mind replacing my old Italeri 38(t) for a newer version kit....or even give the Academy Hetzer a try. Options abound.

Could be an easy "Shake And Bake" Campaign for me. I've always wanted to do another 38t chassis, but always pushed it aside.

The thing is... WHAT TO CHOOSE?

Czech Grille M w/ 3cm Jagoschreck (Cyber-hobby)

John - Aha! That photo looks familiar. Of course, I actually have the Dragon Grille M (or K?) kit . I think that means I have too many...

Awesome! Now all we need is Gary and that older Dude, Jeff T. and we'll have the old gang here!

I just looked last night and I still have a 38t Jagdpanzer (the Hetzer) I could use? Won't have to buy anything either!

I will put my name down, have several models of a 38T collecting dust. Will try and get it done. Several builds lining up to take my time. Until then all the best.

Hey John, I might be interested in joining. Is any post war variant good? I was looking at the Pansarbandvagn Pbv.301
from armycast or maybe the Sav m/43 tank destroyer.
