New Review: Panzer IV Ausf. H mid production w/zimmerit

Recommended Posts

The Panzer IV series of medium tanks was the only German tank to see continuous production throughout the Second World War.  As battlefield conditions changed for the Germans during the war, so too did the Panzer IV:  thicker armor, more powerful main guns, the introduction of spaced "schurzen" turret and hull armor plates.  The modeler has been fairly well served over the years when it comes to Panzer IV kits in all the main scales.  In 1/35th scale, Tamiya, Italeri, Dragon, Gunze Sangyo, Zvezda and Academy themselves have all done various versions of the Panzer IV in their catalogs.  Academy, in fact, did a couple of Panzer IV Ausf H's way back in 1984.  The kit under review in this article has NOTHING in common with the 1984 releases.  Not only is it from 100% brand new tooling compared to the 1984 versions, but it comes with zimmerit in the form of waterslide decals!
