The Jagdpanzer 38 (t) in casual language, "Hetzer" is a German armoured cannon from World War II. The design was based on the modified chassis of the PzKpfw 38 (t) tank (Czechoslovakian LT vz. 38). The vehicle was developed in 1943 and production started in 1944. Over 2,500 copies were produced. The greatest advantages of the vehicle were its fast and cheap production, low silhouette and highly inclined armour plates, which favoured the ricochet of shells. After the war, the Czechoslovakian factory continued production until the 1950s for its own and the Swiss army.
This new construction block model from COBI is authentically reproduced using 555 unique blocks. Mobile tracks, opening hatches, access to service hatches and two figures of soldiers depicting a member of the vehicle crew and a gunner armed with a heavy machine gun make the vehicle an exquisite exhibition model. Clear and intuitive instructions easily guide the builder through the stages of assembling the vehicle. High-quality, durable pad-prints increase the aesthetics of the model. The whole set is complemented by a plate with the name of the vehicle printed on it. Build a story, block by block.

Received as a Christmas gift and loved assembling it. Giving the Cobi brick model a 4/5. The tank looks great. Tracks roll easily. The main detail missing is that circular cover found on the back. The model is also a bit delicate. The sides can come off a bit easily if not handled carefully. Last the cannon can only move up and down, not side to side. Overall I'm not disappointed. It's a great addition to my Cobi tank collection and as a display piece. Those few gripes are minor compared to owning a Hetzer :)
