I peered into the UM kit box this evening, wondering whether I was in the right state of mind to tackle the myriad of Bergepanzer 38 track links... mmmm... wasn't sure. So I got out my wargame Hetzers to see if that would encourage me. They are from a range of manufacturers - Esci, Fujimi (I think), Britannia, and a metal version, possibly SHQ or possibly not:
One in Russian Liberation Army (POA) colours. The POA Hetzers helped liberate Prague from the Germans, and agreed to do so on condition that the Czechs wouldn't hand the POA 1st Division over to the Reds. The POA kept their side of the bargain. The Czech government handed the POA over to the Bolsheviks. You can guess the rest of the story. Funny how people think the Second World War in Europe ended in May 1945.
Unfortunately, my Hetzers weren't enough, and I closed the UM box again.
Instead, I flocked my 20mm plastics:
Canadians from the War of 1812. Much easier!
