Dragon offers a complete lineup of the popular Panzer IV family tree in 1/35 scale, and now gaps in the smaller 1/72 scale lineup are being filled too. The newest 1/72 Panzer IV kit from Dragon is an Ausf.H type. Production of the Ausf.H variant commenced in April 1943, and improvements included an 80mm-thick glacis plate and a layer of Zimmerit paste to prevent the adhesion of anti-tank mines. Side skirts were also added to the hull and turret to enhance the vehicle's protection. With all the new armor, the Panzer IV's weight increased to 25 tonnes.
This 1/72 scale plastic kit is a fantastic new offering, with the majority of its components being newly tooled parts. Examples include the complete turret, upper hull, fenders and Schurzen side skirts on the hull and turret. Utilizing research data and engineering experience with the larger 1/35 equivalent kit, the details on this Panzer IV are very accurately portrayed. The box supplies a generous selection of Cartograf decals that cover panzer divisions operating in locations such as the Eastern Front (e.g. Poland, Ukraine) and Normandy. These markings stand out, and will look impressive on a suitable diorama piece. Dragon has already released Pz.Kpfw.IV F, F2 and G kits, so the addition of the very popular Ausf.H comes as a welcome addition for modelers everywhere. In fact, when lined up alongside each other, collectors will be able to trace the evolution of the important Panzer IV tank.
