"Nice Kit with Plenty of Detail"
I and my grandson built this tank pretty much at the kitchen table in two days. He helped on a few parts but I had to assist quite a bit. It has many small parts that require a bit of experience to handle. But it builds up nice and he liked the action figures and the optional battle damaged side plate piece. The tracks are tricky to install which seems usual for tanks but super glue did the trick. We used only a basic paint scheme but with some airbrush work you could make it really standout.

"this Panzer IV not as Detailed but easy build!"
scott.moore1972 (Dublin, Tx)
Oncce again for the price it is a very good tank , not so much on the detail but for the beginner to have some fun and not eat alot of time this is awesome, the are other way more difficult panzers out there but this is very enjoyable for any new beginner , I think for the money and time spent, great product!

"Old kits like these are the reason the old Monogram Models is so fondly remembered"
wwwilliam (Salt Lake City, UT)
Revell/Monogram is releasing a few 1/32 armor kits from their Old Mold collection. Their WWII German Panzer IV tank was first released in 1970. There are better quality Panzer tank kits from Dragon and Tamiya with far better detail, but they cost a lot more. This is probably a good kit for modelers wishing to try a tank kit for the first time since none of the parts are extremely small and the price is low. Being 1/32 scale instead of the vastly more popular 1/35, it is a fair bit larger than the more modern 1/35 kits, and thus demands more attention on your model shelf. You could build a mini-collection with the other half-dozen or so 1/32 kits that Revell alone has released recently. Another suggestion would be to pair it in a diorama with a 1/32 scale aircraft, such as a Focke Wulf or Me-109. Spectacular! The worst sink holes were found on the suspension bogies. Fix ‘em with built-up layers of putty, or leave them be since they are not too visible on the finished model. Parts fit is OK. There is a little flash to trim and the parts fit is not bad for a kit from Monogram circa 1970. The tracks look and feel like black licorice, typical for the time. Were you expecting individual link tracks? Sorry, not here. Of course, there is also no interior or engine detail whatsoever. There are a couple not-too-bad figures, one sitting, and one standing. The most noteworthy option is a pair of side-armor panels with high-caliber shell holes that can be spliced in with a hobby knife and glue. If you decide to use these, I’d recommend modeling the turret in a ditch aside the tank because a side-hit with that caliber shell would probably send it flying. The most glaring accuracy snafu I can see is the drive gear housings are like 2D representations of the real thing. However, they are buried pretty deep among drive wheels and treads so this might not be noticed by your modeling buddies unless they are rivet-counting Panzer geeks (like some of us). If you lower your standards enough not to care if this isn’t state-of-the-art, then you’ll REALLY like this kit. I did.

"The panzer IV H"
This kit is one of several 1/32 tanks available from Monogram back in the day the copy right on this kit is 1970 so it's old school. It has some good points but the bad points are bad. the wheels roll and the suspension works. The down side is the tracks are too short they crush the rear idler wheels so i extended the track length by using staples to lengthen the tracks by 5-6 mm. This solved that hassle. the next hassle was the shirts in theory these should go together well but the fact is they are severely warped and will take a lot of bending to get the skirts to work on the sides. The turret skirts don't really want to go together either but with trial and error you will get it to go together but there will be gaps. The upper hull doesn't fit well either but will fit eventually. The decals come in shiny new or weathered complete with scratches nice touch. the main gun elevates but not much. the turret fits well. The kit has a lot of extra tools and fuel cans plus 2 soldiers to run your tank. This tank is not easy like it's predecessors were so don't give this kit to a newbie it will be a nightmare for them. one little hassle was there was no antenna but there is a hole for one so I had to make one. So for me this kit was a let down but the sherman and lee in this series are nice.


Due to small parts that could cause a choking hazard please kee away from children 3 years of age and younger.
