Happy New Year!
I really like German tank destroyers and I own quite a few from different manufacturers. This little tank destroyer is a favourite due to it’s size and character. Great for backing up your infantry in Bolt Action games. Its almost cute.
The Panzerjäger 1 was the first of the German tank destroyers to see service in WW2. It curried a 47 mm AT gun mounted on a Panzer 1 chassis.
This model was painted “Panzer grey”, washed and dry brushed with sandy brown paint.
It was designed to face French tanks like the Char B1. They were employed in France, North Africa and the Eastern Front.
Total production was 202 vehicles. 132 were produced in 1940 and 70 were assembled 1941.
Vehicles produced in 1941 are recognizable by their seven-sided gun shield while the 1940 model had a five-sided shield. These photos are of a 1940 Panzerjäger 1.
This model is from Warlord.
