Just finished today is my 1/76 scale Hetzer (Jagdpanzer 38(t)Sd.Kfz. 138/2), of the Hungarian 25th Recon Battalion depicted near Lake Balaton, western Hungary, in early 1945. The kit is from Fujimi, and is modified with the decals, antenna, a deck mounted remote control 7.92mm MG42, and overall panzer dark yellow basic paint scheme. The Hungarians received about 75 Hetzers in the latter part of WW2. The Baiters were known for their reliability and ability to be hidden due to their small size.

Its my first Hetzer. The build was fun, and the old Fujimi kit holds up well, having been first released in 1971.
