Hi Jim,thanks for the review.A book with reasonable price for once.
I have a question, just for clarification.I'll be starting DML PzIV late as my next build. Would this book be of use to me or is it only of use if I was building their example; the DML F2/Tamiya's Ausf.J mix..
Thanks,vanhall.

I honestly believe it would. I tend to use these books as a means of clarifying additional detail and getting my ideas clearer on finishing.

If you're into PzIVs, here's another book (equally cheap and equally useful) you might want to consider:

Thanks for link. Very tempting book, especially because of the private photos.
Like you say in the review,it would have been good in 3 episodes; Early, Mid and Late.
I'm waiting for this book to arrive from Poland;

Thanks again.
