Description
Limited edition 1/35 scale model kit of the Panzer IV Ausf.D tropical version. Production of the Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.D began in October 1939 and a total of 232 vehicles were completed until October 1940, with around 30 converted for use in tropical conditions by installing improved ventilation system and sand filters. A few of these were also fitted with add-on armor on the front and sides of the superstructure. The 4th and 8th companies of Panzer Regiment 5 belonging to the Deutsches Afrika Korps (DAK) used this variant in combat in North Africa though it was soon superseded by more effective longer-gunned variants. The exclusive decal sheet printed by Cartograf contains markings for 8 different vehicles that served in North Africa in 1941, including one captured by British troops. The kit features: 鈥 Realistic suspension with multiple components which actually works like in the real vehicle. 鈥 Tracks assembled from individual links. 鈥 Simple tool for creating a realistic track sag. 鈥 Separate front and rear fenders can be posed in a folded-back position. 鈥 Optional add-on armor for the superstructure. 鈥 Driver鈥檚 and radio operator鈥檚 hatches with interior detail can be posed open or closed. 鈥 Complete machine gun with workable ball mount in the hull. 鈥 DAK type engine deck hatches can be posed open or closed. 鈥 Turret hatches, pistol port, signal port and ventilation cover can be assembled open or closed. 鈥 5-directional slide-molded commander鈥檚 cupola authentically recreates structural details. 鈥 Realistic KwK 37 L/24 gun with delicate catcher for spent ammo shells and accurate rifling in gun barrel. 鈥 Turret turntable unit with accurate floor pattern and crewmen seats. 鈥 Photo-etched parts are provided for detailing on-vehicle tools, fenders, smoke grenade rack and installing optional marking placards.
