out now Dragon 1/72 Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.D

Dragon has a brand new Panzer IV Ausf.D tank in 1/72 scale available for modelers wishing to expand their number of variants in this family. The Ausf.D was produced from October 1939 through to May 1941, with just 229 units manufactured in total. This type reintroduced a hull machine gun and it used an external mantlet (instead of an internal one). Armor protection was also improved, with 20mm armor now used on the sides. The tank retained the previously used short-barreled and low-velocity 7.5cm KwK.37 L/24 gun as its main armament.

Dragon has previously released 1/72 scale plastic kits of the Panzer IV family, but this is the very first of the Ausf.D. Thus, it’s a 100% newly tooled kit. By judiciously combining smart engineering and slide-mold technology, the number of parts to assemble has been reduced to a minimum. For example, the road wheels and track run are made as one piece. Indeed, these parts only need to be plugged into the hull suspension units and glued and, hey presto, they’re finished! This is a completely new idea from Dragon to ease assembly in every possible way without sacrificing one iota of detail. Indeed, modelers will be able to enjoy their craft more than ever without wasting time on repetitive tasks. The Panzer Ausf.D was an early member of the family, but Dragon has applied the latest technology to it!

Current progress on Kongo

. I've attached the lowest level of the bridge and midships superstructure. The rear funnel assembly is dry fitted, pending some additional weathering, PE, and other bits.

Notes:
– Still need to run some thinned Elmer's along the railing in order to blend the bottom "rung" with the deck.

– Weathering is heavier where crew are less likely to easily repaint.

– I grew tired of reattaching 5" guns, so I put them in the box as they fell off.

– PE Ladders (part 3) that allow access to the bridge are waaaaay too short. I'll have to find alternatives.

– Citadel up is just base coated and unweathered.

– I'll use the tripod plastic bits but likely will replace the rest with brass.

All for now. I'm kind of in a hurry to finish this for a show.
