German Tank Panzerkampfwagen IV Ausf.F
Item No: 35374

Length: 168mm. Image shows painted and assembled kit.

The Last of the Short-Barreled Pz.Kpfw.IVs
In service throughout WWII, the Pz.Kpfw.IV was a durable servant to the German Army; its Ausf.F was the last variant to utilize a short-barreled gun: the L/24 7.5cm KwK37, and was also equipped with wider tracks to cope with the increasing thicknesses of armor. 470 Ausf.F Pz.Kpfw.IVs were manufactured between May 1941 and February 1942, mainly seeing action on the Eastern Front and in North Africa and taking on enemy armor such as the Soviet KV tanks and the British Matilda.

About the Model
This is a 1/35 scale plastic model assembly kit. Length: 168mm, width: 82mm. The sturdy form with angular hull lines and short-barreled gun is captured in style. Ausf.F features such as weld lines on the additional armor, and wider tracks are faithfully depicted. Comes with optional parts depicting engine deck hatch with louver as seen on desertified tanks. Assembly type tracks feature realistic depictions of center guide sections, and have one-piece straight sections. A jig helps recreate upper run 'sag.' Comes with a commander figure for installation in the cupola, plus gunner and loader for a total of three figures. Two marking options are included, to recreate Eastern Front vehicles.


This image shows the 5th Panzer Division marking option. The engine deck hatch has its louver depicted.

Three figures in realistic pose will add further realism to your model. A choice of commander heads is included.

Ausf.F-specific features are captured with accuracy, with further detail added by accessories such as spare tracks.
