Dragon New Item Announcement 4/4/2020

 


This Dragon Armor Pro 1/72 scale kit depicting a Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.J Mid-Production tank possesses the ultimate level of detail. Furthermore, it’s the first time for Dragon fans to get their hands on an Ausf.J kit in this scale. In most respects, the Ausf.J was a retrograde from the previously produced Ausf.H, a necessity imposed on Germany to simplify and speed up production as the war progressed. For example, there was no electric generator for the turret traverse, so the turret had to be rotated manually.

Thus, it possesses a number of brand new parts to enable accurate rendering of this type. For example, the turret, lower hull and flame-suppressing exhaust mufflers are all newly tooled. All details are crisply molded, including the armor skirts for the turret and hull. The number of parts to assemble has been reduced to a minimum too, so modelers will be able to enjoy construction of this Panzer IV Ausf.J more than ever.
The artwork on the box top is absolutely stunning too. Now, small-scale modelers can at last accurately recreate a German Pz.Kpfw.IV from the late-war period.
