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.

Bolt Action Army Verdict

My Bolt Action Army played well in the VBAL last weekend, it however could of been better, I did sink a lot of points in to two anti-tank guns that could have been better used.  The season 3 dot net changes also meant that some weapons are not as effective as they once were.

Warlord Games Panzer IIc

What I have finished.

I have been working on a Warlord Games Panzer IIc for Bolt Action.

The Warlord Games Panzer IIc I have is a resin model with left and right Track,  Hull, and Turret. with metal Barrels for the MG and 2cm main-gun.

Overall the quality is fantastic.  I wish I had of started this blog back when I was first cleaning and assembling it, for photos.   Like with all resin models I get I clean with warm soapy water to remove any mold release and other residue from casting, then dry fit everything before I start with paint.
