Review

If you have Dragon's Pw.Kpfw.IV Ausf.G #6594 in your stash, you might want to take a look at this P.E. set, #35409 from Voyager Models. This set, also with PEA091, VBSO135, PE 35145, and PEA090 should do the trick if you want to go all out with the kit.

This PE set contains the basic updates for the Kpfw.IV Ausf.G, hatch latches, improved barrel cleaner, smoke dischargers, improved commander hatch hinge, equipment holders, improved road wheel storage box, and other little goodies that any carpet monster would love to get a hold of.

The PE's in this set are very small and having a very steady hand or a good pair of medical clamps to hold on to them would help so would having a PE bender.

There are 5 pages of instruction, loose leaf, for this PE set. They look to be somewhat easy to follow in showing proper placement of the parts on the model.

Easy of use would depend on the skill level with PE's the model maker has.

Overall, this is a very good PE set the have in one's stash.
SUMMARY
Highs: Instruction seem to be easy to grasp. Priced within reason.
Lows: Some parts maybe too small for some model makers. Some PE experience needed for this set.
Verdict: On the fence about this PE set, has some good point and not so good point. Would have to do build with them to judge easy of use.
