[Review] KA Models Academy 4 Detail Set Up for Academy PANZER IV H 1/35 KIT

KA-Models will release a detailed upset for the Academy 4 tanks following the K2. Although the development has not yet been completed, it is expected to be a rich composition similar to K2. Since we have not gotten the actual product yet, we will look at the product structure based on the data sent from the manufacturer.

MM-35015 PANZER IV H DETAIL-UP PARTS DX for Academy

Dx includes most of the parts designed for the 4th generation. It uses a large amount of brass etched in different thicknesses, and is composed of high-precision resin parts, various brass parts, aluminum guns and decals to be used in shells.
It is interesting that it is made of material and structure like the real thing.
In addition, it is interesting to include a spring of 1.0mm in diameter so that the fender can be reproduced in the same way as the real one.

MM-35016 PANZER IV H DETAIL-UP PARTS VALUE PACK for Academy

It is a product that price is lowered by excluding various parts based on Dx.
Surche Chen and resin parts, which occupy a large area, and brass finished products are excluded.

MM-35017 MG34 with MOUNT and BIPOD

MG34, which is difficult to reproduce precise shapes due to the complex and thin parts unique to German tanks, is included as a precision resin.
It is included in Dx, but it is said to be sold separately so that it can be purchased more.

MM-35018 KW.K.40 7.5Cm Shell

Dx includes two shells, two shells, two shells and a total of six shells and shells, but it is said that it will be sold separately for users who will produce dioramas and vignettes and use them in bulk.
It is 5 shells and 5 shells of each kind of shells used for No. 4 tanks, total 15 shells and shells.

 

MM-35019 PANZER IV H Schurzen for Academy

It is included in the Dx, but it is sold separately for the users who want to apply it to the Surchmann etch.
SUR CHEN Gloves and fixtures are included.

MM-35020 IDLER WHEEL for PANZER IV Late Ver

Injection models are sold separately with idler wheels that reproduce the omitted details due to limitations of mold technology.
It is a precision resin part that accurately reproduces the shape of the "U" shape in which the inside of the wheel is hollow.
This part can be used in all of the late 4th tank type, and it can be used as a useful part that can easily fix the fatal error of the late Tamiya Broome Bear.

It is a picture of a work made based on Dx.
Surchen, which takes up a large area, comes first.
It is said that it is designed in the same way as the real thing.

The body fender, which is made entirely new, is also reproduced in the same way as the real thing, so the structure that can increase the physical feeling is more visible.
Especially, the front and rear fender fixing springs are reproduced in the same way as the real thing, and I think it is very interesting design because it is possible to operate.

The main cleaning rods are reproduced as a shelf finished product.
It is a very simple part, but it is a part that is difficult to reproduce the exact shape unexpectedly, and it reproduces accurately by combination of etching part and shelf part

It is a part of a crib that is made to assemble using real wood.
Combined with etching, the shape closer to the real thing is reproduced.
In addition, it seems to be able to save the texture of a more realistic color as much as using real wood.

It is a part of KA-MODELS that shows why surchhen and fender are the biggest contributors to this product.
The real thing is realized as a thin steel plate, and it is said to be able to express the damaged appearance such as being wiggled or piled.
It is important to reproduce the production method of the real thing, but it is also a great advantage that it is easy to express the damage naturally.

High-precision resin parts are adopted from this product.
Surrounded by a protective frame to prevent breakage.
If only the four corners are cut with nippers, the protective frame will be easily removed, so you do not need to worry.
It is interesting that MG34's complicated shape is reproduced well, but the machine gun mount of cupola which was too thin and difficult to shape was also reproduced with sharpness.
In addition, it is interesting to reproduce the tangent made of a tan and fabric made of a naturally curved shape.

The manufacturer has informed the manufacturer that some parts will be added to reproduce the non-standard version of the vehicle, such as accessories that are visible only in some vehicles at the final development stage.

In addition to the products that correspond to the Academy, ZVEZDA, TAMIYA and other products that can respond to the 4th tram is also scheduled to be released soon.

[Review] DEF Model Academy 4 issue upset detail notice NEW detail SETS FOR Academy Pz.IV Ausf.H 1/35

Def.model has foreseen some etching products for Academy Science's new No. 4 tanks.

I am going to learn about the composition of Def.model products with the forthcoming release of the Academy's forthcoming Fourth Album. This product is pre-release and is made up of images received

The DE35017 Pz.IV Ausf.H Early / Mid Basic PE detail up set is a basic set that simplifies the parts that were omitted from the basic body or difficult to make precise with plastic is.

This 4th tank has a very satisfactory detail as a kit itself, so it would be nice to add fine details omitted in the basic set.

Masking tape is also added to distinguish the rubber and wheel parts of the road wheel.

The second product is the DE35018 DE35017 Pz.IV Ausf.H Early / Mid Turret Schurzen PE detail up set, which allows the product to reproduce the shranchen around the turret alone

It can be applied to the academy products in the form of early and mid-term type, and it can be fully utilized for the existing No. 4 tanks. It will be a necessity for modelers who want to get more life into plastic parts of turrets.

The third product is a set of parts of the car body sherchen which is strayed from the No. 4 tanks H type. This set has the same shape from the 4th tram H type to the J initial type, so the utilization is high. In particular, I think Tamiya's new Brumba is a must-have product.

The configuration is faithfully reproduced with etched plates, such as brackets connected to the car body, and Sherchen parts that are bound together like a single piece.

And resin parts have been added to the wood plate to fill the space between the Scherzhen and the body that the existing kits have omitted.

The fourth product is the part for the OVM detail up of the No. 4 tanks. It is the most difficult product among the 4 products. .

Although it is faithfully made in the same binding method as the real thing, it is a product that requires a lot of concentration because it is the size.

It can be used for actual bonding, but it is thought to be a product that emits more light when the bonded tool is reproduced.

Three products except car body Shechchen

And finally, the first set of four products will be released as a commemorative release.

This product, as you can see from the image above, will create a very satisfactory harmony by developing etch set in Def.model based on actual model development data in cooperation with Academy Science.

The production is delayed due to the holiday of the New Year holidays, and I promise to introduce you again after the holidays.
Domestic launches of these products are expected to begin soon in domestic model shops at the end of February.
