Dragon has been slowly populating the family tree of the Panzer IV medium tank in 1/35 scale plastic kits, and it now offers the complete range from the Ausf.A through to the Ausf.J. However, there are numerous variants of interest within this larger family, and one of these is the subject of Item No.6764 – a Panzer IV Ausf.B fitted with a snow plow. The Ausf.B still featured a short-barreled 7.5cm KwK37 L/24 main gun and an MG34 machine gun. A crew of five operated the Sd.Kfz.161 tank, and it saw service in the 1939-40 campaigns in Poland, Norway and France, and also in the Balkans and in Russia from 1941 onwards. A snow plow was very useful for winter combat in places like the Eastern Front, which was subject to extreme temperatures and large amounts of snow that severely hampered mobility.

This 1/35 scale plastic kit builds straight from the box into an accurate Panzer IV Ausf.B, using accurate components from a previous release of this variant. Of course, the snow plow is a brand new element for this particular kit, and it stems from new toolings. The plow easily mounts onto the front of the standard tank. The box-top illustration from Ron Volstad will surely inspire modelers to create a stunning diorama of this ‘armored snow plow’ in action on the snowy Eastern Front. The track links make use of Magic Tracks that are very simple to assemble. Modelers will reap a lot of pleasure after investing in this exciting new plow-equipped German tank!
