I really like the looks of this, with those mesh schurzen and panels above them, and the little cards which I think are poison gas detectors. Cool.

Cheers

How many PzIVs were built during WWII

I only ask because it looks like DML intend to produce all of them!

Yes poison gas detector cards - i was just reading about them in Panzerwrecks 10, that arrived the other day. Theres some pretty good photos on pages 70-73, with mesh schurzen and covers also.

I was also thinking 'not another dragon panzer', but these details caught my eye.

Hmmm. bounce

Well. Very Happy

It will no doubt be a really nice kit of another Pz IV. silent

At least we are getting a little bit of a break from the avalanche of Tigers Rolling Eyes

Hello,

Jenny, thanks a lot for sharing the poster! John is correct abou the gas detection panels. They are called "Losttafeln" or "Losterkennungstafeln" and there are three on a Pz IV J. One is mounted on top of the gun recoil housing and the other two are located on the round part of the turret skirt. When looking at the poster at a larger resolution http://www.dragon-models.com/catalog/dml/new/6575/6575poster.jpg they can hopefully be seen as PE parts on the kit?!

Regards,

Notger
