Does anyone in the Braille Scale community know of any manuf. that produces a Jagdpanzer IV/70 Alkett version? (raised superstructure). Plastic or resin.

Dragon Kit 6689 is a L/70(A)

The kit seems to be based on the (V) version, which is the best kit of this jagdpanzer, much better than the Tamiya kit

Think Frank is looking for 1/72 scale model, hence the reference to "Braille scale"

This might help. Appears there was a resin conversion to do an Alkett in 1/72.

not so easy to find I think and not cheap....
...and not so easy too to built. I got one, and I had to throw away the tracks...Even I haven't paid that price, it was a pity !!
But you have the Thomas Schürzen, it's not so bad !...
You also have an other solution : built it yourself...
You can find an "how to do" in 3 parts here :

It's written in Japanese, but I'm sure your google translator will give its best !!

You could kit-bash one of Dragon's Pz lV's (or a Revell) with Dragon's Jagdpanzer lV.

Sorry my link does not appear to work. I'll give this another shot. You can also get to this directly from their website under reviews.
