The Jagdpanzer 38(t) (SdKfz 138/2), later known as Hetzer (“baiter”), was a WW2 German light tank destroyer based on a modified Czechoslovakian Panzer 38(t) chassis.

The Jagdpanzer 38(t) was intended to be more cost-effective than the much more ambitious Jagdpanther and Jagdtiger designs of the same period.  Using a proven chassis, it avoided the mechanical problems of the larger armoured vehicles.

The Flammpanzer 38(t) was a Jagdpanzer 38(t) modified with a Keobe flamethrower in place of the main gun.  It was deployed on the Western Front, with first use during the Battle of the Bulge.  Less than 50 units were produced.

Product Highlight:
- 1/56 (28mm) scale 3 sprue plastic kit
- Option to build either an Early, Mid or Late Hetzer tank destroyer
- Option to build kit as a Flammpanzer 38 as well
- Choice of three gun mantlets and two road wheel sets
- Multiple rear idler wheel choices

1/56th scale plastic model for 28mm wargaming.
assembly and painting required.
