Academy 1/35 Jagdpanzer 38t Hetzer (early)


Recommended Posts

 

Hi all.

 

Finished yesterday and got it into the booth.

 

I'm no expert (this is my second armour build) but this is a lovely little kit, the only issues were some of the fit on the rear deck which seems to be a common looking around at builds.

 

I replaced the kit skirts with brass sheet and used copper wire to create the loops on the sides as the kit only gives you little plastic nubs.

 

Painted in Tamiya 50/50 XF60 and XF57 hairspray chipped over a base of Black primer and primer red in a preshaded style,

 

Weathered with pretty much everything, oils, enamels, pastels, and pigments.

 

thanks for looking :)

Hi Phas3e,

very nice little model, To be one of your first AFVs, your level at IHMO is very high, I really like the aged look you have achieved.
The STUG is also very cool, a vehicle that I love.
Cheers and TC
Francis.👍

Stunning ...weathering is just spot on one of the nicest finished models i have seen in some time .

Very nicely done. I'm not sure about the inside hatch colour, though - I would have thought they'd be dark yellow or even red primer?

Nice built and realist weathering! IMHO the inner face of the hatches were in red primer not white.

Great work! Weathering is beautifully done - looks perfect to my eye.

 

I knew I shouldn't have opened the topic though, as I've now added a Hetzer to my wishlist....  😀 🤦‍♂️

That really is stunning. Some of the most realistic weathering I have seen. Very impressive! :worthy:

Kind regards,
