Academy 1/35 Jagdpanzer Hetzer 'Ambush' Camo

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I'm new to the forum and thought I'd introduce myself by posting my first WW2 armour project in a very long time - a 1/35 Hetzer. This is the Academy 'Late Version' Hetzer and was built out-of-the-box apart from a metal barrel and a brass PE periscope guard. The first image shows the first few stages of painting, whilst the rest show the completion of the 'Ambush Pattern' camouflage and weathering. I made a few mistakes along the way such as the order in which I masked and painted the camo, and the masks pulling off the paint as they were removed which I had to go back and repaint. This was a learning experience for me.......

I am placing it on a FoG plaster street section with a WSS commander figure.

Thanks @Hewy- this is the first Alpine figure I've painted and it was a really nice figure, excellent detail and a great pose. I expect I'll be buying few more Alpine figures in future,

 

Cheers,

Hi @f matthews thanks for your very kind comments - the camouflage pattern was challenging although was fun to do.

Although the figure is superb. For me, the rust to the armour was stand out! Great job!

Hi @ewing9593,

 

thanks! Yes I was really happy with the way the rust turned out, and I think I’ll do more of this on a future build. Maybe a post war decaying wreck or something similar.

 

Cheers,
