Plastic Soldier Company (PSC) Panzer Mk IV H

As the beer advert goes, "Probably the best ... experience I have had putting a Panzer IV kit together"! Another bullseye for the Plastic Soldier Company (PSC) and no I am not on a commission (see below): 

The side skirts have been temporarily left off, but for late 1944 Panzer IV's they certainly look the part!

The only mysterious (where does this go?) part was the 'exhaust(?)' filter that goes on the rear, top left side of the engine compartment. A dream to fit together and I think it will even survive the roughest of wargamers hands. I still have flashbacks of putting the side and turret skirts on an Esci Pz IV (Ausf H) together.

All part of the Command Decision OrBat for my "1944 Panzer IV German Tank Battalion" project, to be continued.

PS My plastic"heap" is at last shrinking :)

I've been toying with getting some PSC kits for my later WW2 project. Sounds like they're worth a look!

The models in particular fit together like a dream
The newer kits like the Pz IV are state of the art easy assemble with great (better than HaT) detail

By way of contrast I put together two packs of 3 x PzIV's together quicker y=than it took me to put together an old Airfix Pz IV

Definitely worth a look and a god send for anybody gaming WW2 in 15mm
