Flakpanzer 38T

Hi again,

my last little painting update for the Lehr...
I really like the background on these guys, Czech tanks, which basically outlived their usefulness and got repurposed for AA, thought I was pleasantly surprised they also ended up serving as the base for the Hetzer too.

I mainly choose them as they were nice cheap AA for a 6th platoon, but enjoyed painting them too.
That's it for my Lehr though might take a little break from the Germans for a while, who knows what next!

Thanks for looking Adam


  1. Very nice looking vehicles!

  2. Nice work... looking at them makes me wonder if the chassis was also used for the Marder IIIM?

  3. Those are nice!
    Yes. There are quite a view german stop gap measure tanks based on the Panzer 38(t) chassis.

  4. Cheers guys, yes the marder 3 was from the same tank chassis.

  5. Had a Platoon consisting of 1 x Flak Panzer 38t and a 2cm Quad on a Panzer IV Chassis (Earth and Steel), however since Atlantik Wall came out the AA Platoon for 12SS has now changed to a non-mixed unit!! it's off to the store for another 38t!.............can't say I'm sorry, as its a lovely looking vehicle.
