Just finished today is my 1/76 scale “Hetzer†(Jagdpanzer 38(t)Sd.Kfz. 138/2), of the Hungarian 25th Recon Battalion depicted near Lake Balaton, western Hungary, in early 1945. The kit is from Fujimi, and is modified with the decals, antenna, a deck mounted remote control 7.92mm MG42, and overall panzer dark yellow basic paint scheme. The Hungarians received about 75 Hetzers in the latter part of WW2. The “Baiters†were known for their reliability and ability to be hidden due to their small size.

It’s my first Hetzer. The build was fun, and the old Fujimi kit holds up well, having been first released in 1971.

Nice Hetzer you got there. Had no idea the Hungarians got them.

The 1/72 Italeri kit (ex-Esci) and the UM kit's are in my stash. Both are pretty good. Attack also makes a 1/72 Hetzer family, but it isn't as nice as the UM or Italeri offering.
