Dragon already has an unparalleled range of Panzer IV plastic kits in its 1/35 scale range. However, the newest one is not just a rehash of previous kits, for it represents a Late Production variant of the Panzer IV Ausf.G. This kit actually represents a vehicle manufactured in April-May 1943, and which arrived on the Eastern Front in time for the enormous clash at Kursk. Indeed there were more than 800 Pz.Kpfw.IV G tanks in Army Groups Center and South at the time of the Kursk battle.

As a unique model in its own right, this Ausf.G Apr-May 1943 Production kit possesses a number of completely new parts. These new components include the turret, turret schurzen, side armor plates, fenders, add-on armor plates, frontal plate and schurzen brackets. The side schurzen plates are made from metal to allow an exact representation of those on the original vehicle. This is a Smart Kit, assuring modelers of a well-engineered product that is easy to assemble and yet is full of intricate detail. With this particular kit, the modeler can create a new Panzer IV G tank precisely as it appeared in the great Kursk confrontation.
