I'm a UK based 1/35 tank and armour modeller, specialising in German armour. I have worked on a commission basis for enthusiasts all over the world, created masters for one of the big 1/32 resin "ready made" model companies, and have recently helped out on some projects for Archer Fine Transfers. I build for myself - when I have time! - concentrating now on my favourite Stugs and Pz IV's. I also post my work on www.track-link.com. Please leave comments or questions on the blog or on T-L. I'm happy to answer any questions from fellow modellers and axis history buffs. If you would like to contact me, just click on "view my complete profile" below for my email address. All the best, and thanks for visiting! Dave

Hetzer with interior #1

I'm posting a couple of pictures of the Eduard late Hetzer with interior detail.  It's been an extremely slow and complex build so far. The fit has been good overall, but the kit is characterised by numerous small and very detailed parts that are difficult to work with in styrene. Be warned!

The only serious downer has been the barrel. You'd best replace it with a metal one. In this case, an Armorscale item. You will need to perform some minor surgery to get it to fit, but the result will be worth it. The 75mm shells are a little "clunky" but you won't see any more than the tips through the hatches one the top hull is buttoned up, so it's not worth replacing them.
