Panzer IV C/D/E Stowage
1:35 #BL35087K
Review by Terry Ashley

This stowage set is designed for any of the available Panzer IV Ausf.C/D/E kits from Dragon, Italeri, Tamiya or Tristar and consists of just three pieces in light cream resin with the quality of the casting being excellent without any blemishes and virtually no cleanup required on the parts.

The detail on the castings is very realistic with well defined details on the bedrolls, tarps and crisp details on the track links and road wheels.

The large casting is designed to go on the front of the hull in typical fashion as seen in many photos of early Panzer IVs in Africa and Russia with the 36cm track links well defined with a selection of bedrolls, tarps and two spare road wheels included in the casting. All that is needed is careful painting and its ready to go on the model.

The second casting has the top of the turret storage bin included with a flag draped over again as seen in many photos for easy air recognition and you can paint whatever flag you wish but the Politically incorrect swastika which was the usual type used for this purpose.

Finally there is a small bedroll and pack that can be added anywhere on the vehicle for effect.

A simple but nicely detailed set to add life to your early Panzer IV with minimal to no cleanup required and just needs painting before attaching to the model.

Highly recommended.
