Russ Amott takes a gander at the German Medium Tank Panzer IV Ausf. G from Zvezda in 1/35th scale.

Many thanks for the review and sharing your experience.

Not interested in Panzer but was very curious about Zvezda's recent releases quality as I looking forward learning more about their coming MA42 and T-34/76...

Thank you for the comments, and Darren, thank you for getting this up.

St Miller, Zvezda has been steadily improving on quality and detail with their kits. Still little things here and there but they are worth looking at. I am very interested in the M4A2.

Seems like a useful, if basic, alternative to the much-pricier Dragon kits and I appreciate that it has at least a basic turret interior, so useful considering how many hatches the tank came with. Worth considering as their quality control has improved considerably from the Bad Old Days.

Okay, I am impressed. Appreciate the interior. Tracks look good to me. Built and painted as well as Russ did, I can't tell a difference between it and fancier brands.
