The Panzer IV Ausf. F was actually the third production variant to the Panzer IV. The initial versions A, B, and C were used for development and training only. The first production unit was an Ausf. D. The Ausf. F featured a new turret design, a new drive sprocket and was the last variant armed with short barrel 75mm gun.
From the Manufacturer
The Panzerkampfwagen IV (Pz.Kpfw. IV) commonly known as the Panzer IV was a medium tank developed in Germany in the late 1930s and used extensively during the Second World War. Forces of Valor's Panzer IV features a turret that rotates 360 degrees with a pivoting gun and opening commander's cupola and a commander figure. The hull includes opening crew hatches and antenna. Removable side-mounted armor plating and hinged panels are also included. The rolling rubber tracks and working suspension on each track wheel complete the detail.

It is not a toy
. And even though it has fine moving parts., delicate parts.?
One must always remember,.
It is Not a Toy but a Shelf display model. In 1/32 scale.
The Model comes pre-built. Hand painted and asseblmed
. It also inclues some small detail parts for a Diorama scene.
The little Commander figure is accurately detailed and even his medals sparkle on his chest when the light catches them just right.
If you have ever attempted to build a plastic kit of this same tank.
Then you will know how involved that can be.
. On this model. The tracks roll the wheels turn.
The turret turns 360 degrees .
The Gun barrel is metal and it can be raised or lowered.
The machine gun details are very fine.
I personally have been a model kit builder since 1960.
Having built many, many models.
But I have never been able to achieve this sense of realisem.
Even the skirts can be removed from the sides if you choose.
Unimax has brought out some fine models.
I read where some people can only run them down because they are made in China. So what?....
If a U.S. company comes along.
And produces this same quality or better?
I will buy from them.
But the point of the matter is; "They Don't"
. I beleive in giving credit where it lays.
And not bash some Nation because they are making these units.
That? is pointless and not helpfull. some of the, comments like I have read.
I appreciate the detail and the effort in Unimax kits regardless of where they are made.
It's the Model I like.
If I could do half as good as this?
I would open my own company..
I think that once you look art the Models objectively?....
You will agree.
These are some "fine models for the adult collector"
. Who intends to place them on a Shelf or in a display case.
I have gotten many positive comments about Unimax Models from persons whom have seen my collection.
And have begun colleting the Models themselves.
This fact alone is a testimnent to the workmanship.
And after all....This?.....Is what model building is all about..
. I purchase my " Unimax Models"; Here on Amazon.com; Where the whole World.
Shops for Value........
Remember.; .".Enjoy the Hobby." For what it is.
I was actually a bit hesitant to order the Panzer IV since it's camo looks like crap in the picture. Rest assured that the actual colour of the camo is darker than what is shown in the picture, and doesn't look as messy.
The Panzer IV certainly looks the part and is not out of place sitting next to the Panther, Tiger and company.
Yes I did say it looks great......well yes it does but I haven't mentioned the almost nervous break down that it gave me putting it together.
Assembly wasn't that hard you certainly don't need a Masters in Engineering to put it together but you do have to have the patience of a modern day saint when you realise that the parts actually DON'T fit together as they are supposed to nor is there anything like a decent set of instructions to guide you in any way! The side skirts were the worst and unfortunately are also the main feature, that's why I persisted.
But like I said it LOOKS great once you do have it together, but please be gentle with it! LOOK BUT DON'T TOUCH....
Overall it is a great model and worth the trouble
