Dragon Models 1:72 Armor Collector Series 60550
Krupp Sd.Kfz.162 Jagdpanzer IV Display Model
German Army, Eastern Front, 1944

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
Krupp Sd.Kfz.162 Jagdpanzer IV   3.75"   1.75"

While the unit canít be ascertained, it is known that this Jagdpanzer IV fought on the Eastern Front in 1944. What makes this Early-Production Jagdpanzer IV L/48 model stand out is the exquisite finish of its distinctive camouflage scheme. Sand-yellow blotches are painted over a base of olive green, while an extra dimension of camouflage color comes from a network of red-brown hatching. Other markings are confined to balkenkreuze on the superstructure sides. A further interesting aspect of this detailed model is the armored side skirts affixed to the hull sides. All in all, these features contribute to an eye-catching Jagdpanzer IV model from Dragon Armor.

Krupp Sd.Kfz.162 Jagdpanzer IV

The Jagdpanzer IV's development began in just after the battle of Stalingrad when the Whermacht Arms Bureau asked for a new standard tank hunter that had more armour and was lower profile than the StuG III. The Jagdpanzer IV first went into service in 1943 and served in the battle of the Bulge, Normandy and on the eastern front. The first production variant of the Jagdpanzer IV had 100mm of frontal armour and 40-50mm on the sides. The Jagdpanzer IV was first armed with the 75mm Pak 39 L/48 main gun, the same gun used on the StuG III, Panzer IV and many others. The later version mounted the 75mm Pak 42 L/70, which some believed was more powerful than the 88mm anti-aircraft gun.

Dragon's 1:72 scale Jagdpanzer IV is constructed almost entirely from plastic, which allows for the greatest possible detail. This model is beautifully recreated, with periscope binoculars rising through the fixed-open hatch, separately-applied armor plates on either side of the engine deck, an elevating 75mm cannon, separately-attached spare track and road wheels and an array of hand-painted tools such as a shovel, hatchet and track repair equipment with simulated attachment bands. Maintenance hatches, leaf-spring suspension and rivets can be clearly seen on the underside. Some releases in this series include side-mounted armor plates over the vehicle's tracks and a delicate antenna.
