I still do not understand where this company came from. I have the clear hulled Panther G and the Easy 8 kits and they are just amazing. Time for them to do a T34-85 I guess.

This is a definite buy for me. I love that since these awesome Panther kits have come out from Meng, Takom and RFM, we are now seeing Pz.kpfw.IVs to give us something different from Dragons. Even in spirit, I just like the option. Excited for new Ausf H mids and lates.

I'll be moving my display cabinets soon so I will have to disturb some of that dust ......

Nibelungenwerke, the last factory building the Panzer IV as a turreted tank, switched to three return rollers in 1945, as an economy measure. If you use the late swivel-pattern commander's hatch, the original, four-return roller hull, and Thoma screen-style skirts, you have a tank suitable for the Battle of the Bulge, which would have required combining two very expensive Dragon kits, until Rye Field proposed a kit with everything in one box. Lookin' forward to this one!

You're really better off. Run and save yourself before you catch this panzer fever or before you know it you'll just have to have every production variation of some German tank or another. Or Sherman's, or M60s or Leopards or P-51 for that matter.

Looks like another great addition to the stable-full of Pz IVs out there. I just wonder about how the Thoma Schurtzen are made; if they're that feeble mesh that Dragon inflicted upon us or something that actually works. While PE sort of works that mesh certainly did not even vaguely look realistic. Interesting that they'd start at the end of the series; what's next a late H? And then build backwards to an A or even the weird prototypes?

Speaking of weird prototypes: in the Spielberger book about the Panzer IV there's an interesting one that has the same chassis as the Versuchsflakwagen 8,8cm Flak 41 auf Sonderfahrgestell: the same interleaved road wheels, but with a shorter chassis.
