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 :)
