The latest addition to our fast-growing range of plastic 1:56 scale Bolt Action vehicles is this eagerly awaited Panzer IV medium tank!
Whilst the propaganda headlines may well have gone to the big cats such as the Panther and the Tiger, the Panzer IV was the backbone of German armoured capability throughout the war.
You can choose to build your Panzer IV as one of three different variants:
- The short-barrelled Ausf. F1.
- The long-barrelled Ausf. G with its distinctive ball muzzle brake. Respectfully known by British forces in the desert campaign as the ‘Mark 4 Special’ it saw action in the Western Desert and the Russian Front primarily.
- The Ausf H with its new muzzle brake and protective schürzen side skirts. A regular sight on late war battlefields, the Ausf H is one of the iconic Panzers of the war.
We’ll be showing off painted versions of the F1 and the G next week.
As with the other Bolt Action plastic vehicles, this kit is highly detailed yet easy to build. It provides a rugged gaming piece and will also appeal to painters and modellers.
The Panzer IV comes with a comprehensive waterslide decal sheet, allowing you to finish your new tank off perfectly!
The new Panzer IV joins our existing plastic kits and we have several more already in the pipeline, the next being the Sd.Kfz 234/2 Puma armoured car…
