PzKpfw IV Ausf.H
This is my first attempt to airbrush modelling. It is also the first tank assembled from about 16 years. It would be used into my first diorama ever (I will release it when I have time to craft it?). If you have any suggestions about how to improve my modelling feel free to comment.
PzKpfw IV (Panzerkampfwagen IV) was a medium German Tank during WWII.
The first prototype was introduced in 1936, and mass production started I 1938-45. Total production amounted to 8600 pieces.
PzKpfw IV proposed by Krupp company won the contest for the medium tank under 18 tones with the gun barrel of 75 mm announced by German Defence Department I 1934. This type of vehicle was the most extensively modified Wehrmacht tank. Version G, H and J was the most supplied. The armament of these versions included gun barrel KwK 40. From the year 1943, armoured screen (Schurzen) was mounted on the tank side. A lot of vehicles was created on the undercarriage of PzKpfw (e.g. StuG IV, tank destroyer Nashorn).
PzKpfw IV was extensively used on every front of WWII. It was also present during The Warsaw Uprising.
