Another real Hetzer

Post by Jerry Carducci » Sat Dec 05, 2020 3:44 pm

I will offer these photos as an additional resource. This was Littlefield's Hetzer. I'm afraid I never asked the pedigree whether or not it was a ex G13 ( although I expect so) so there it is. The 'hands' in the photo holding the tape measure were none other than those of my old late friend Per Sonnervik...

At the time I was beginning to make a pattern for casting the gun mantlet in alum hence the focus on this part

Hi Jerry,

Yes that is a G13, the drain plugs at the drive housings was only on G13 and never seen on real ww2 Hetzers.

I've dug out a few pictures from the Switzerland tank museum from the summer of 2011.
Used by the Swiss after war.
