Just been looking at historical shots of a jagdpanther next to a hetzer, I might need to go for a 1:48 kit after all. Shame, I really like the look of the Rubicon kits.

If you already have 1:50 Corgi stuff, you definitely have to do the 1:48 Tamiya Hetzer...hell you might even score once from eBay from Bandai.  Do not use the 1:56 stuff...way too small...IMO.

Good luck on your search.

Thanks, I'm watching a few Tamiya Hetzers on ebay at the moment.

The Tamiya-models work well. Detailed and work nice with 28mm figures. Sometimes 1:56 is a little bit tiny for most of the bigge 28mm. 1:56 fits better to the smaller perry-miniatures.

Thanks. My figures are mainly Artizan and Crusader with a mix of Black Tree and old Bolt Action, so they look pretty good against the diecasts. The Rubicon stuff does look very good, though I suspect it may be dwarfed by the 1:50 stuff.

For those, I would definitely recommend using 1/50 and 1/48 scale kits/models. I got a lot of the BTD GIs and Germans back in the day and with the exception of the Tamiya Tiger, which is huge in 1/48, I almost exclusively went 1/48 which look perfectly fine.

For Empress (e.g. old Anglian SCW) and Perry, I'll take 1/56 any day of the week.
