The Great LSM Twins Group Build ends July 3, 2024 ×

1/35 Academy Jagdpanzer 38(t) Hetzer

Recommended Posts

So I thought I would do a quick Armour test run prior to the Eastern Front Armour build kicks off..




I picked this Hetzer of Ebay the other week for $25 including shipping from Korea... Looks like a good kit to start off with.. I'm planning no AM Parts on this, bar a replacement barrel and Mantel from DEF Model




Planning to crack the lid off tonight or tomorrow!

Time for some photo's!


So the construction of the Hetzer took place over two Tuesday nights at my mates place during our weekly modelling night/get together.. It built up really quickly without any issues, maybe 3/4 hours... Really nice feeling to have something built so fast and ready for painting. The DEF manlet nd Barrel Set had no instructions, but I managed to get by..






So paint wise, I will be using the Ammo range




First time I have used tried this or anything else like it, Primer when on quite well... but I did have some issues of it creating little pools in some areas




it covers resin and metal well also




This morning I have just painted the Rotbraun (Red Primer) as the base, once dry I will start masking off the camo with a J's Model Works mask set.
