So my frankenstein Panzer IVJ which now has parts from two manufacturers and 5 different kits.
I want to make up three, 2 mid production which will be easy as that is just the exhaust system and simplified construction and 1 late production version which I am considering making into the OP variant. That will have the StuG cupola and artillery periscope added. It might not quite be practical as a gaming model but we will see.
I Started with the revised rear plate and tracks from the BF Jagdpanzer IV kit
With the idea of using a standard Panzer IV Turret with the PSC Turret armour applied
And the additional 80mm Bow armour
Pistol ports removed
Late style cupola
Starting to come together
Also removed all the vision ports from the turret
And also removed the left hand port from the turret face.
Found a decent mantlet (the one on the right)
All mated together
Additional detail on the turret roof
Added the reinforced ring around the base of the cupola, new shovel and track sets
A bit more consolidation
Front detail added. I want to go back and add the front tow hooks.
