Jagdpanzer 38 Hetzer Vol. 1 by Marcin Rainko

Jagdpanzer 38 Hetzer Vol. 1

Part of the Gun Power Series


Jagdpanzer 38 Hetzer Vol. 1 by Marcin Rainko

The Jagdpanzer 38(t) (Sd.Kfz. 138/2), later known as Hetzer ( baiter ), was a German light tank destroyer, used during World War II and based on a modified pre-war Czechoslovakian Panzer 38(t) chassis. The first part of this Hetzer monograph describes its development, including production and subsequent modifications. Jagdpanzer 38's combat service is fully documented, and referenced with Hetzer-equipped units listing. There are also camouflage and marking plate artwork, as well as the technical description of the vehicle. A list of all museum-exhibited vehicles is provided, and some of these tanks are shown in colour photos (details of construction are shown). Included are photos of the Hetzer belonging to the Canadian Forces Base, Borden, during its reconstruction. A modelling chapter is devoted to 1/35th kits. About Gun Power This series focuses on the armour, armoured vehicles and artillery. Every book contains a chapter about the design's history, plenty of drawings in modelling scales, colour plates presenting camouflaging schemes and a modeling chapter. The part covering the design's development history is illustrated by a large number of photographs. We are trying to choose interesting photos, which had been earlier unknown or rarely published. The plans show different variants of the vehicles or guns in several views, all non-standard versions and modifications and depict the details with the highest possible quality. Specifically for the modellers, the included colour profiles are printed in the same scale. A separate, comprehensive modelling chapter goes through the models and accessories sets (foto etched parts, tracks, additional sets of personnel, servicing crews etc.) available in the market. The books of this series are fully bilingual (Polish/English).
