Ready for the Battle in the Badlands.

Chatten Associates painted the Hetzer during summer 2004 for a more professional appearance. Although the grey color scheme is not historically correct, it looks great. (The Wehrmacht stopped using Panzer Grey primer in January 1943 and Hetzers were not produced until April 1944).

Two 24V Makita drill motors were installed using the same Anvilus SSR proportional speed controller to provide 5 mph top speed.

Thanks to Jim Pate for providing these photos of an authentic re-conditioned Hetzer that was on display in Texas. As can be seen in the lower photo, the Hetzer is a very low-profile vehicle, making it a formidable opponent.
