An attempt to stop the Americans from bombing/straffing it perhaps Wink

Probably there for when the bridge was being carried around on top of the Valentine. Most (all?) allied vehicles had stars on top (a feature rarely modelled, I feel) in NWE.

If you look closely, the bridge is still attached to the Valentine.

The Czech-designer Panzer 38(t) had served the Germans well in the early years of the war, both from the stock captured with the fall of Czechoslovakia and with examples built under German control. By 1943, however, it was obsolete as a gun tank, and most were withdrawn to be converted into Hetzer tank destroyers. For some 60-70 of them, however, a different conversion awaited. German medium recce units had originally used wheeled armoured cars of half tracks, and these proved inadequate in the poor conditions of the Eastern Front. To meet this need for a fully tracked recce vehicle, these were converted into “Aufklarungspanzer 38(T)” - roughly “Reconnaissance tank 38 (t)” - by replacing their turrets with the open topped turret used on the sdkfz 222 and sdkfz 234 armoured cars. This mounted a 2cm gun and coaxial MG, and significantly lightened the vehicle compared to the original turret, improving speed and cross country performance

Did  not know about this one.

A tank I've hankered after a 10mm version of, for quite some time.

Now that I have a 203mm tracked howitzer, the Aufklarungspanzer 38(T) and the SG-122 are next on my "I wish someone I could deal with made this in 10mm" list.

...., the Aufklarungspanzer 38(T)

Surely this is one of the easiest options of a manufacturer to offer if the have the hull, as its a simple real world mating of a hull and a turret. I suspect if you bought a 38(T) Leon would sell you a 222 turret.

The hulls are different. Figure conversions I can do but hard edge stuff at that scale defeats me.

Hadn’t realised the hull was different- but on another look the superstructure looks more boxy and built up

The SG-122 is not, as far as I'm aware, available to 3d print. The Ausflippitydoda 38(t), however, is...

Sometimes when searching for photos for this page, we come across some rather unexpected images. The IDF has deployed female tank crews in the past, and experimented again with in recent years. As of April 2019, the IDF has opted not to have women serve as part of tank crew.
