Rubicon Models Jagdpanzer 38(t) Hetzer Review

Firstly a big thanks to Tyler for the series on Muskets and Tomahawks, it was a big help as I went through surgery and gives all of us a chance to read well constructed articles that don’t ramble on like mine tend too, about one of the most colourful and fun periods to game in.  I do wounder if Tyler would like to do a series on Bolt Action at some point, as Tyler dips his toe in to 28mm WW2.  I am back now and we are off to a running start, while recovering I had a chance to catch up on some new and old projects.  So here is the first.

Rubicon Models released their Jagdpanzer 38(t) Hetzer, well I had to have one, not only because it is a cool model, but because I really wanted to do a force for Bolt Action with Hetzers in it.

Rubicon Models Panzer III arrived on my desk a short while ago.  I have been keen to see how these go together, for my DAK force some Panzer III’s are always welcome.   There is a lot of very happy people out in the community raving about these models. Now that I have received my order I can get to and put it together.
