Mike's Build: 1/35 Tamiya Hetzer (Mid)

Post  Blade57 on Fri Dec 05, 2008 11:40 pm

If I can get my act together enough to finish it up, I'm planning on doing Tamiya's Hetzer. I've got an Armorscale Barrel/Mantle set and though I tend to be 'PE Impaired', I'll probably do some selected additions from Aber (unless someone knows of a better set). Hoping Jenny knows if 'WW II Productions' has tracks for this kit as they are outstanding. Will check first, but hope to do this in a winter theme, probably 'Ardennes' for a small diorama.

Finally Updated - Tamiya Hetzer

Post  Blade57 on Wed Sep 30, 2009 5:50 am

First apologies, as my planned project didn't quite come out like I'd hoped. 'Fall Ball' Baseball season was over last week so I thought I'd have time to get my Tamiya Hetzer done in time to meet the 30 Sep deadline. Well, I managed to finish the Hetzer, but to do so I had to do it OOB. Waiting forever for a back order of the Armorscale barrel was the main thing, but time management and being 'old' contributed also. So I decided to go with just the kit parts. Also sincerest apologies to Jenny as she so graciously had sent me a set of WW II Production tracks for this build which I'm saving for an update to the Hetzer or for a better effort to come. And also to Richie, me mate, for not doing a better 'supporting' role. Fortunately, this Tamiya kit basically fell together for me which aiding a great deal. I am pretty satisfied with the 'ambush scheme'. The diorama base is from another build I've got going on, but the Hetzer will find a similar home with a base and several Panzergrenadiers. Thanks for looking,





Mike

D'oh pale
As always, a victim of my own stupidity as I notice now that Laura and the gracious 'powers that be' have extended the time for "Xtremely Little & Lethal". Now I'll be able to do some more on the Hetzer. Hopefully getting the base done and figures added. I'll post the update.

Nice job Mike,

The camo looks nice and the best shot is the last one, on the base. As Laura mentioned, any SBS of this?
