Already available as a 1/48 scale MM series kit, Tamiya now responds to the requests of military
modellers and announces the release of the German Tank Destroyer Hetzer Mid Production in
the 1/35 scale.
About the Hetzer
In 1943, the German high command ordered development of a new purpose-built tank destroyer
to replace all of the interim vehicles like the Marder, and the Hetzer was quickly created to meet
this requirement. Based on the Panzerkampfwagen 38(t), the Hetzer housed a crew of 4 in its
low, compact hull. It was armed with a powerful Pak 39 L/48 75mm gun in a fixed mounting and
featured sloped armor for enhanced protection. 2,584 were produced by May of 1945, and
modifications were continually added during production, leading to differences between early,
mid, and late production models.
