James Bella takes a quick look at DML's Pz. IV Late Production with Zimmerit, a follow up to last years review of the non-zimmed release.

Nice review. This kit looks like a good option for those of us who are zimmerit challenged.

I found this review of James Bella very thorough. The number of pictures made me feel that I am opening the kit box. I think this is indeed a very good review of a kit that I am contemplating on getting. Thanks James!

I second Noli's comment. It is very nice to see a review that both tells and shows you what you are getting. It really helps out in making a decision of whether or not to buy a particular kit. Much appreciated James

I'm not afraid of making my own Zimm, but it sure is nice not to have too.

Thank you gentlemen. Pictures always tell a better story than I possibly could, and usually have the biggest impact on me

I'll be starting a build log on this kit very shortly if you're interested...actually I'm quite far into it already.

Great review. Looks like a good kit - I'll certainly pick one up. Seems like the Stug IV has always been the poor stepsister of the Stug III ... glad to see it getting more attention. Now, when will Dragon release a Panther A early and late with zimmerit?

Nice review. The weakest point of this kit are the DS tracks with all that flash. One more reason to buy Magic Tracks from Cyber Hobby or those from Tristar.

Excellent, informative review, James. Just the kind that tells a hobbyist whether or not the kit meets or exceeds expectations. In a down economy like this, value-for-money is an important consideration.
