Tamiya 1/48 Panzer IV late production Tamiya #23584 by Rick Hopkins
I’ve just finished building not one, not two, but six great little models.
They are the new release of the Tamiya 1/48 Panzer IV late production Tamiya #23584
This model is superbly detailed in every way. Even though this is a smaller scale Tamiya has put every effort in making this model accurate and fun to build. The tank comes molded in a desert tan with two metal tubular weights that fit into plastic sleeves on the inside. The kit also has the little rubber type grommets for you to use on the main gun hub and the front drive sprockets.
The kit supplies all plastic (no rubber style) (14 pc each side) track system that are made to be easily put together and in every case on these six models that track length came out perfect ! The kits are also made so you can add or take away the side armor on the turrets and the hulls during your build so you can make it look factory fresh or battle damaged? I also added weathering but straight from the box is cool too! On the six I’ve done here I made each one a little different that the others just to make them look more realistic….after all no two tanks where the same!
I found these kits to be a lot of fun and when I was done I have some great little replicas of the WWII German Panzer IV (late production)
