I am posting this for my friend Libor Zachoval of LZ Models. This is a test build of a new kit soon to be released in 1/35th scale of Bergepanzerwagen 38(t) or Bergepanzer 38(t), a recovery vehicle based on Hetzer The Bergepanzer Hetzer is lesser known or seen than those based on Panther, Tiger, Pz III or PzIV chassis, and quite difficult to find in kit form, until now.
Libor has designed this conversion kit so it may be used with either the Tamiya mid Hetzer or Dragon late Hetzer kits
There will actually be two kits released, the first for the early Bergehetzer with crane and winch, and late Bergehetzer with crane, winch and blade - will follow, and be available from LZ models in just a matter of weeks. Pictured here is actually a bit of a mix of some early & late options as this one was chiefly made up to ensure parts fit.][Also not how the jib crane can be build either mounted for use of stowed, as shown.]
Thanks much for having a look and we'd be very happy to know your impression so please leave Libor a bit of feedback and Actually early Bergepanzer Hetzer is available for preorders on special low price at http://www.lzmodels.com/Shop.html
