WW2 German Pegasus Hobbies 1:72 Scale Pz-38T Light Tanks.


Back at work today and trying to catch up with peoples blogs, still feel a little fecked but life cracks on, made a few of these plastic beauties recently and will add paint to them soon, a good price and a joy to make even for those of us who have hands like oversized shovels.

The Panzerkampfwagen 38(t) was originally a Czech tank of pre-World War IIdesign. After Czechoslovakia was taken over by Germany, it was adopted by the German Army, seeing service in the invasions of Poland and Russia. Production ended in 1942, when its armament was deemed inadequate. In all, over 1400 were manufactured. The chassis continued to be produced for Hetzer and Marder III tank destroyers, turretless assault guns, anti-tank guns and anti-aircraft guns.
The (t) stands for tschechisch, the German word for Czech; the Czechoslovak military designation was LT vz 38. Manufacturer's designations included TNH seriesTNHPSLTP and LTH). The special vehicle designation for the tank in Germany was Sd.Kfz. 140.

Platoon or Zug of Pz-38 (t)'s, the only problem I had was the hooky things in front at the bottom (brain not working now).

20mm Lamercraft commander to show command tank.

20mm SHQ and Lamercraft figures to show scale.



Original in action.
