1/35 Vollkettenaufklaerer 38 w/7.5cm Kanone 51 L/24
We complete the trio of new Hetzers in its popular series of 1/35 scale kits with the launch of the Vollkettenaufklaerer 38 w/7.5cm Kanone 51 L/24. What is significant about this kit – as with the other two German subjects, the Jagdpanzer 38 mit 2cm FlaK 38 and the 15cm s.IG.33/2 (Sf) auf Jagdpanzer 38(t) Hetzer – is that it has never before been available in plastic kit. The Vollkettenaufklaerer 38 was originally an effort by Auto-Union to create a tracked reconnaissance vehicle suitable for Eastern Front operations. Auto-Union’s prototypes with an open-topped compartment appeared in early 1944, but they were never pursued. Czech company BMM followed up with its own version of a scout vehicle based on a Jagdpanzer 38(t) Hetzer chassis, with a mockup ready by September 1944. This example based on a modified 38(t) chassis featured a 7.5cm L/24 gun. Also known as the Ger�t 564 Pz.Aufklwg.638/12.
