Description - Panzerkampwagen IV by John Prigent
The backbone of the Panzer divisions, the Panzer IV entered service at the start of the war; over 8,500 were built and variants covered in this book include the Wirbelwind (Whirlwind) - a Flakpanzer with a Flakvierling in place of the turret of the gun tank - and the Jagdpanzer IV tank destroyer. As with all the titles in the series, the emphasis is on techniques and superdetailing - the essentials for good military modelling. Introduction; Brief history of the Panzer IV; Modelling the Panzer IV Ausf G - painting and construction, superdetailing, weathering; Modelling Panzer IV variants - material centres around the Jagdpanzer IV tank destroyer with a piece on the Wirbelwind; Detailed walkround photographs of the Panzer IV Ausf D; Scale drawings; Camouflage and markings; Model round-up-details of Panzer IV models and accessories currently available; References - bibliography, museum listing, web sites; Compendium Modelling Manuals (from No. 21 onwards) take up where the Osprey Modelling Manuals left off.
