Tamiya 1/48 Hetzer (32511)


About the Jadgpanzer 38t Hetzer

Surrounded by slanted armor on all four sides, the Hetzer featured a compact and low style for an aggressive design. Manned by a crew of 4, the Hetzer featured a 75mm L/48 gun in fixed mounting. Development time was minimized by using components from the Czech 38(t), and over 2,800 models were produced in all from April 1944 to the end of WWII. Serving as the main tank destroyer for the later half of WWII, the Hetzer was seen on both eastern and western fronts.
