Trumpeter 1:35 - German Jagdpanzer 38(t) Hetzer STARR - Plastic model kit #05524

The Jagdpanzer 38 (Sd.Kfz. 138/2), later known as the Hetzer ("pursuer/hunter"), was a German light tank destroyer, based on a modified Czechoslovakian Panzer 38(t) chassis, inspired by the Romanian "Mareşal" tank destroyer.

The Jagdpanzer 38 Starr ("Starr" means "rigid" in German) was a simplified version of the Jagdpanzer 38, first built in 1944. It was armed with the 75mm Pak 39 recoilless gun, while the original Hetzer used a traditional 75mm Pak 39 gun. First prototypes of the Hetzer-Starr were equipped with Tatra 928 diesel engines, however later they were replaced with standard engines. Several Hetzer-Starrs were used during the Prague uprising in 1945. Overall 10 vehicles of this type were built, 9 of them were later converted back to the normal Jagdpanzer 38. The remaining prototype was destroyed at the end of the war.
