Review

"I’ve got to say, honestly, I was quite amazed at the total content of this manual. From beginning to end, the model subjects, tips, techniques, and hidden surprises really blew me away! Definitely recommended for all levels of hobbyist, in all scales, I feel that every modeler can get some good from this writing…carefully written, with dynamite photos and text, Modelling the Panzer IV in 1/72 Scale deserves a spot on your library shelves!" -Mark Smith, Armorama (July 2005)

I will definitely purchase other books by this author, and would like to see more Osprey Modelling armor titles devoted exclusively to 1/72 scale.

This is one of the best modelling books I have ever purchased. If features clearly written descriptions of excellent modelling techniques appropriate to the small scale of the subject. The models included are superbly built, well displayed, and beautifully photographed. I will definitely purchase other books by this author, and would like to see more Osprey Modelling armor titles devoted exclusively to 1/72 scale.

What an amazing resource. This book basically contains walkthroughs as the author builds two Panzer IVs, a Jagdpanzer IV, a Sturmpanzer IV, a Sturmgeschutz IV, and a Flakpanzer IV (with some more info on two other Panzer IV variants as well!), each taking the difficulty level higher. Information about Revell kits, aftermarket details (resin, metal, and photo-etched), scratchbuilding, interiors, and even diorama creation are all covered, as well as various types of paint schemes. There are even a couple pages with photos of a preserved Flakpanzer taken with a modelers eye. Almost 80 pages packed of well-written information in a small font provide insight without getting bogged down in basics. And the author is certainly up to the task of creating models that inspire and awe. The only complaint is that the images are mostly very tiny - 1/72 scale modelers certainly expect to strain their eyes, but this is a little much.

If you are interested in building 1/72 models of WWII German armored vehicles, I cannot recommend this book enough.

This is the first book I came accross that is dedicated to 1/72 scale armour models. It presents a good coverage on the common variants of the famous German tank (Panzer IV). The models presented in the book were constructed with painstaken blinding details (these models are only about 2 inches long!). The book explains many techniques, such as casting and painting, to produce the details in the the models. I recommand this book to any serious modeller who is interested in the small scales.

Format: Paperback
This is the first book that deals with assembling many Panzer IV variants in 1/72 scale. Mr. Clark shares with us his knowhow concerning assembling, gluing, converting, painting, detailing and scratchbuilding many Panzer IVs in many stages, from the beginner to a master modeler. Colour chips and some pictures from a Wirbelwind variant are included. Definitively highly reccomended to everyone interested in 1/72 scale armor.

Excellent photographs that display conversions and build of various platforms on the Pzkpfw IV in 1/72nd scale. Excellent guide for building models of any scale.
