Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf.D conversion

Previewed by Frank Berger



Here are some Preview photos of the first major 1/48 scale Conversion Set from Mike Belcher's BATTALION BITS range.


This is an extensive 1/48th scale Conversion designed to backdate the Tamiya PzKpfw IV.J to the earlier Pz.IV Ausf.D. This conversion provides new upper hull and early turret with early cast cupola. Several options include open and closed cupola, and short 75 mm gun with and without the antenna guard. It also provides correct style drive sprockets and idlers, modified road wheels and rubber return rollers, early style muffler and separate driver/radio operator hatches.

This set is listed as BT8, retail price is Can$31.99, and it is available via the BELCHER BITS site: http://www.belcherbits.com/index.html
