Aggressive Appearance Perfectly Reproduced!

Tamiya's hugely popular 1/48 MM series, featuring high quality palm sized models displaying exceptional detail and accuracy gets a new recruit, the German Tank Destroyer Hetzer Mid Production. The dynamic silhouette of the Hetzer has been accurately replicated in this highly detailed 1/48 scale model. Die-cast lower hull adds extra weight for enhanced realism, and straight upper and lower tracks made of a single piece assist assembly.

About the Mid Production Hetzer

Surrounded by slanted armor on all four sides, the Hetzer featured a compact and low style for an aggressive design. Manned by a crew of 4, the Hetzer featured a 75mm L/48 gun in fixed mounting. Development time was minimized by using components from the Czech 38(t), and over 2,800 models were produced in all from April 1944 to the end of WWII. Serving as the main tank destroyer for the later half of WWII, the Hetzer was seen on both eastern and western fronts.

Like other tanks featured in this fantastic series, the Mid Production Hetzer also features a die-cast lower hull. The added heaviness ensures that even this compact 1/48 scale model features solid, realistic weight. The suspension arms are molded as a single piece to provide strength and stability. For an easy finish, the die-cast lower hull even comes pre-coated.
