This self-propelled gun was planned as a replacement for not much successful SPG  “Grille”. Later, as an attempt was made to set the base s.IG.33 light tank destroyer Jagdpanzer 38 (t) «Hetzer”, but according to historian Thomas Yenttsa, documentary evidence of serial production of this model no. Issued SPG Grille fought until the end of the war, now aware of one survivor of this type of car is exhibited at the Museum of Aberdeen Proving Ground U.S. Army.

I made this SPG as field modification. With add-on armor that I do not crumble in camouflage. Camouflage the rest of the armor I picked up from the standard three-color camouflage of Hetzer. Model painted as usual with artistic acrylic Polycolor, MIG pigments, and oils.

This set was fairly easy to assemble, and did not bring problems to fix some of the shortcomings casting.
