Thanks for sharing Robert, fantastic photos. How I wish the pics were on hand when I was painting my Tamiya Hetzer. I would think this to be Tamiya's inspiration for one of the paint shemes of its kit. Was the vehicle painted in this scheme during the war? Cheers, Tat

@ James Thanks a lot for publishing it. You have done a great job. @ Scott Glad you like it. @ Tat To be honest I don't really know if this vehicle was painted in this Disc Camo presentation of the restoration. But since it was built in the Skoda plant the chances are very high that it started it's career in the distinct camo that the Skoda plant painted their vehicles in. It could be repainted during it's action but I'm afraid that is lost to time. And as for painting your model.... well there is always another Hetzer to be built

Excellent photos! Whoever did the restoration needs to be applauded. Nice to see a real Hetzer and not one of the later Swiss versions masquerading as one.

@ Bob Yeah the people at the Crompton collection really do their homework when it comes to restoring their vehicles. From what I heard there are a few Swiss G13 parts that slipped through during the different owners and successive restaurations. But I also have heard they are going to correct this. The Schwimmwagen, SdKfz 250/1 Neu, SdKfz 251/1 D and the SdKfz 7 of which the walkarounds were published here as well are also from this same collection. All brilliantly restored.
