Walked into the local hobby store at lunch break and low and behold here was one of these new fangled Panzer IV kits from Dragon sitting on the shelf. Appears I was lucky as the owner only had managed to get two in and one was gone already.

Well I may try and get something done this weekend-but I've got the FAMO tyo do...
The 10th Panzer Div. book is really wonderful-one of the best ones on my shelves-I reccommend it highly.

more refs





couple of other references that have some info on the E chassis

Some pics of the parts for the first step in this build-
the instructions
(apparently, according to Tom Cockle,)
Quote:

Use A27 for the early suspensions up to the Ausf.G. Part A16 was supposed to have been marked not for use but was overlooked.


Drive wheel, front and back and idler

I saw that over a T-L too...So when would A16 be used then? H and up? (very promising if that's the case for those who want a newer, later Pz IV)

Contrast pic of Drive wheel


the idler


There is a seam on the nicely made slided molded one-piece idler wheel that cleans up easily enough.

I have been able to see in photos that part A27 was used right through to the Ausf.F at least.

James,

Looks like an awesome kit! That idler wheel seam looks like a breeze compared to the old dml pnzr III idler wheel. And oo oo ooo oo oo. Mr. Kotter, nice shoulder boards and knights crosses!
