Recreate the German Panzerkampfwagen IV Ausf.J with a Tamiya 1/35 scale model kit.
For a single base tank design to fight through the entirety of WWII was something of a rarity, but the Panzerkampfwagen IV proved its enduring efficacy by doing just that.
This precision plastic model depicts the Ausf.J variant of the rustic tank, which toted a 75mm gun and the distinctive "Schürzen" armor additions. Modelers can assemble the kit with open or closed hatches and brake maintence panel, and are also given the choice between cast metal and tubing idler wheels for the complex suspension. Additionally, the kit features belt type tracks and a realistic commander figure.
The title pretty much says it all. This was not an expensive kit yet as usual with Tamiya you get more than you pay for in my opinion. Of course, like many, I'm not a huge fan of the rubber treads but they do the job and I think are much better than the 'assemble yourself' plastic sets some manufacturers supply.
A word too about The Tank Museum. As usual no issues with the order or the delivery and everything arrived promptly and as promised. Always reliable!!
