Miniart 1:35 - Anti-tank Obstacles -  Plastic model kit #35579

The hedgehogs, or Czech hedgehogs, originated in Czechoslovakia and were first used on the country's border with Germany prior to the Munich Agreement and Germany's occupation of the Sudetenland. During WWII these anti-tank obstacles were widely used by the Soviet Union and proved to be especially effective in urban areas to block streets. Germany also used the hedgehogs as part of its defenses of the Atlantic Wall. 

The Czech hedgehogs were normally made from sturdy metal, however the Soviet Union sometimes even used wood for this purpose. The obstacles were up to 1.4m high and consisted of 3 pieces of metal angle joined by gusset plates, rivets and bolts.

This kit contains parts for the assembly of 12 models of anti-tank obstacles.
