I think it's one rivet short on the second fender section, L hand side, near the inside...

This really looks good and for someone like me who doesn't do interiors, this has my interest.

Trumpeter does it again!

No price indication yet and when it will hit the local hobby stores.

Yes the kit has ammo and ammo storage bins.

Tracks are workable

I have both their T34/76 kits and the SU-100 and they are amazing in detail.

This looks no different.

So, roughly speaking, this scale is just over twice the size of 1/35?

I'm just curious...
how many of you, are planning to purchase this kit ?

Reason, Im asking, I just got mine , a few days ago ( $ 476.00 CDN) , and I would like to follow the progress of someone, more experienced, than I am...

I'm not daunted by the assembly, but the finishing , I would say, yes, a little bit...

I've got it ordered for my Birthday, waiting for it's arrival and if SWMBO allows me to at least fondle the plastic before she hides! it till end of june.

A big scale PzrIV has been something I'd dreampt of since being a kid back in 19XX and staring at the Bandai one in a local hobbyshop window.

An after thought I'd like to see it followed by an F2 and on inspection of the images lo and behold the etch sheets are maked F2! makes one wonder.

On that size it seems they could do a better job with the front fender hinge with the cotter pin than mold it as one piece.

I ordered this kit as soon as I heard about it and got it through my LHS. I have never done 1/16th scale and the only other 1/16th kit I own is the older Tamiya RC King Tiger but have wanted to keep that one new in the box. I am impressed with this Panzer IV kit as it seems very well detailed and what looks like to my novice eye a complete interior. I’m waist-deep in a JagdPanther build over in the Panther Tank campaign at the moment but when that is done I’m seriously considering starting in on this kit in a couple of months. If I see that no one else is doing a build log or something similar I’ll start one to give folks some idea of what this kit is all about.

" On that size it seems they could do a better job with the front fender hinge with the cotter pin than mold it as one piece. "

That , and the fact that the hinges ,are not workable...

Hatches,& doors , are either open, or shut...
