Bolt Action: German Panzer IV Ausf F1/G/H
Product code: AC1287
Whilst the propaganda headlines may well have gone to the big cats such
as the Panther and the Tiger, the Panzer IV was the backbone of German
armoured capability throughout the war.
You can choose to build your Panzer IV as one of three different
The short-barrelled Ausf. F1.
The long-barrelled Ausf. G with its distinctive ball muzzle brake.
Respectfully known by British forces in the desert campaign as the 'Mark
4 Special' it saw action in the Western Desert and the Russian Front
The Ausf H with its new muzzle brake and protective schürzen side
skirts. A regular sight on late war battlefields, the Ausf H is one of
the iconic Panzers of the war.
The iconic German tank of the Second World War, the Panzer IV fought
from the invasion of Poland to the fall of Berlin. The Panzer IV was
constantly updated, with its sound design giving it a longevity well
beyond that of its contemporaries. By mid-war it was packing a deadly
long-barrelled 75mm gun, giving it great hitting power and better
mobility and its armour had been doubled in places greatly increasing
By the time of massive battles in Russia in middle of the war the Pz IV
was also carrying the detachable screen side armour known as schürzen.
This was in response to the threat posed by Russian anti-tank rifles
and, latterly, by Allied hollow charge bazooka style weapons.
This is the backbone of the Panzer regiments!
As with the other Bolt Action plastic vehicles, this kit is highly
detailed yet easy to build. It provides a rugged gaming piece and will
also appeal to painters and modellers.
The Panzer IV comes with a comprehensive waterslide decal sheet,
allowing you to finish your new tank off perfectly!
