Overview

The Panzerkampfwagen IV has often been referred to as the 'workhorse' of the German Army in World War II. This important weapon went through several upgrades and improvements during its lifetime and is the only German tank to have been produced continuously throughout the entire war. In his previous title, Modelling the Early Panzerkampfwagen IV, Tom Cockle covered the early production Panzer IV. This book will cover the later versions of the tank from those that were initially equipped with the 7.5cm KwK 40 L/43 to later versions which were mounted with the L/48 gun. Step-by-step photographs show how to model this tank across various scales and at various skill levels, making this book ideal for both beginners as well as advanced modellers interested in minuscule detail, scratch built extras and rare tank markings.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Typical of these manuals, the works are absolutely beautiful. These builds contain lots of brand name extras but also contain large quantities of sheet and shaped styrene and home made resin parts as well. Both authors/builders tell a concise and detailed building sequence with well detailed photographs to accompany the write ups. For those of you that love the Panzer IV, this is another MUST HAVE book.” —Mark Aldrich, International Plastic Modelers' Society (December 2007)

“Osprey's Modelling series shows how advanced modelers use their knowledge, skills and expertise to create incredibly and correctly detailed models of all sorts... Each book discusses how a variety of model kits are used to make authentic looking WWII vehicles... If you are looking for books that provide the high detailing to take your miniatures to the next level, you should check these books out.” —Michael Koznarsky, Historical Miniature Gamer (Issue 11)

“It's becoming a litany, but I genuinely feel that ALL modelers, no matter what their level of experience, could get something out of this book. That could be something as simple as painting tracks or the use of different materials or simply just a different approach to a particular problem. In that respect along with the very inspirational nature of the builds, I have no doubts in recommending this book...” —Jim Rae, Aeroscale (September 2007)

“All of the segments are (of course) complimented by excellent photographs, each of which is accompanied by very informative captions... If modeling a Pz.Kpfw.IV Lang is in your future, this book belongs on the work bench right next to your kit and tools. Highly recommended.” —Frank V. De Sisto, missing-lynx.com (September 2007)

“All of the articles are superbly done with nice color photos showing how the builder went from base kit and a pile of aftermarket to the end product. It is full of informative hints and tips and how-to pieces that can be used by modelers of just about any genre in addition to armor builders... Overall, it is another fine addition to the Osprey Modelling series and is something that modelers of all interest levels will find useful.” —Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (October 2007)
