The German Panzer IV chassis saw many modifications and conversions throughout its service in WWII, and here's one of the more successful: the Jagdpanzer IV L/70(V) Lang tank destroyer. With its potent 75mm L/70 gun mounted in a turret-less superstructure, it presented a low silhouette, allowing the Jagdpanzer to wait stealthily for unsuspecting prey to happen by, then pouncing with the big gun.
Here's another new-generation "Smart Kit" from Dragon/Cyber-Hobby, a series of high-detail, low-hassle kits featuring clever engineering and employing the latest in slide-mold technology to achieve the highest level of detail with the lowest number of parts. The philosophy here is "work smarter, not harder," catering to the OOTB (Out Of The Box) modeler who wants a high fidelity of detail and accuracy without having to make a ton of modifications or add a bunch of aftermarket parts along the way. The kit still includes plenty of parts, to be sure, but the clever engineering means modelers will face fewer hurdles getting them all together. The easy-to-assemble individual-link Magic Tracks are already cleaned up and are ready to assemble. The kit includes newly tooled side skirt armor in scale thickness, a newly tooled mantlet, a newly tooled 75mm gun barrel with hollow muzzle, and optional parts for many other features. Markings are included for eight vehicles. See what's so smart about Dragon's series of "Smart Kits"-- order this Jagdpanzer IV for your German AFV collection today!
