Hello fellow modellers!
Since I don't have an airbrush at the moment (I'm in the process of relocating from Sweden to the UK) I've had time to build another model.


This is the Tamiya Jagdpanzer 38(t). This kit Is a really good base for some detailing, and I decided to add a lot of extras. The barrel is from LionRoar, the photo etch from Euard and the idler from SKP models. This project has been pure fun, besides the pretty fragile and faulty resin idler from SKP, and in hind site I could have used another pair of tracks.

The casting texture on the mantlet was made with putty.


The muffler was a bit of a hassle to bend and glue together, I have no soldering iron!

The "Hetzer" has been one of my favorite subjects for a long time, and will end up in a small MiniArt diorama with some Alpine miniature figures depicting the final battles in Prague 1945.
