    "Grobik" (little coffin) was a soviet nickname of Hetzer. It looks like orthodox traditional coffins:)

    Thanks for the explanation. The Red army seems to have a black sense of humour about AFVs - I remember reading the T-60 light tank was called "a grave for 2 brothers".

    Regards,

    Originally " Brother grave for 2". "Brother grave" is a soviet invention - many bodies in one grave. Less work:(

    Goes with the German's nick name for the Sherman 'Ronson' like the lighter that always lit up on the first hit everytime.

    kampfflieger has quite a few great table top pieces for 1.72 scaled gaming.

    I think he meant to say "Please be patient", but the wait is over. The model is now available at the Hobby Factory.

    Shoot both you guys got me beat.............. native born and sometimes folks have a hard time understanding me!

    Roman another great job...........but more planes..... please!:grin:

    I seem to remember the Americans having such graphic names for the WWI planes the allies loaned them to fight with........... "flying coffins" comes to mind.

    And for the Japanese "Betty" in WWII as the "lighter" because of it propensity to go up in flames easily.

    it is true that some AFVs from ww2 had a habit of "lighting up" like a ronson. due to expedient manufacturing, some shermans equiped with aircraft engines (and no "wet" ammo storage) were unfortunately known as "tommy cookers". the description of such events are horrific. it is because of such things that inter-war vehicles were deisel. modern "halon" systems allow turbine power of multiple fuels. nice job with the hetzer design. cheers, c.b.
