    Another nice kit from GPM!

    Publisher: GPM
    Scale: 1:25
    Size: 280 x 140 x 130 mm
    Parts: 3010
    Sheets: 18
    Format: 210 x 297 mm
    GMI: 3

    The kit

    Lets start with some parts :)
    There is a sheet of thick paper with zimmerit structure that looks really good!!

    On other parts there also are zimmerit structure in 3D that also gives a realistic look.

    Parts from the inside

    And some more parts


    There are a lot of instructions.5 pages of 3d drawings.

    Lasertracks are available.

    The kit gives a very good impression!
    The colors are very very good!
    3d print are also very good.
    With over 3000 parts, this is not a build you do in a week :)

    The name is Panzer 4 :)

    Or Panzerkampfwagen 4
    P z K pfw 4

    If I use the lasertracks I guess the parts count will be about the same or more...
    This might be a build for the next year or two :)

    or rather:

    Sd. Kfz. 161/2 - Ausf. H

    or Panzerkampfwagen IV (PzKpfw IVH)

    I think the zimmerit (embossed) parts for GPM's Jagdpanther are much better than the Panzer IVH - I think I'd build the IVH with the standard parts - the artwork is really good and pretty convincing as a zimmerit finish.

    I don't have the Jagdpanther, so I can't compare the zimmerit texture.
    But when I'm going to build the IV-H I'm sure I will use the zimmerit sheet :)

    Thanks for the review of this kit, Johnny.
    This definitely looks like another, "must have", for the collection!
    It is a beautiful tank without the zimmerit. That is an added bonus!8)
