Late PzIVH without Zimmerit?

Help!
Have just got the new (to Australia anyway!) Dragon PzIVH with Zimmerit
& realised I already had kit 6300 (the one they released a few years ago)
without Zimmerit, which appears to be virtually identical. Is it possible to build
a historically accurate IVH WITHOUT Zimmerit from this kit (6300)without major back-dating or should I trade it in at my friendly LHS?

Regards Teags

Hello,

As far as my reference goes, all H versions of the panzer IV had Zimmerit coating.

Ausf. H production started in May of 43 well before the introduction of Zim (Sep. 43). But all late Ausf. Hs (Dragon kit) had the zim.

Thanks Roy,
Yeah I knew there was a 'window' of a few months prior to the introduction of Zimmerit when the H was produced. I reckon the early PzIVH (from Tamiya) is more
appropriate for this time period (and I,ve already built one!)
Thanks for replying, Teags

A couple of post up I mentioned that Ausf. H production started before the introduction of zimmerit. So alot of early Ausf. H did not have zim. All late H did.
