Panzer IV H front by 12jack12 Panzer IV H front by 12jack12
Designed as an infantry-support tank, the Panzer IV was not originally intended to engage enemy armor—that function was performed by the lighter Panzer III. However, with the flaws of pre-war doctrine becoming apparent and in the face of Soviet T-34 tanks, the Panzer IV soon assumed the tank-fighting role of its increasingly obsolete cousin. Robust and reliable, it saw service in all combat theaters involving Germany, and has the distinction of being the only German tank to remain in continuous production throughout the war, with over 8,800 produced between 1936 and 1945.

The ausf.H was the first with the so called seitenschürzen(extra armour) on the turret and on its sides, so I wonder why they arent here, werent they included in this kit?
Otherwise, it looks epic :D

I checked the info that came with the Academy model. It says that the model depicted was introduced in April 1943. It carried a thicker armor of 3.1 inches. I put everything on the model that came in the box, so either they did not know it should be their or they did not know how to model it. :shrug:
