Product Picture

This 64-page book is number 26 in Pen and Sword’s Tank Craft series. It is printed in the larger A4 size on high gloss, thicker paper. The topic of this book is the Jagdpanzer IV Tank Destroyer as used on the Western Front in 1944 and 1945. It starts by talking about the developmental history of this tank destroyer, then about the many kinds of units that used this vehicle. There are ten pages of color camouflage and marking pages with two tank destroyers on each page. Following that section are thirteen more pages of 1/35 and 1/72 scale kits builds. The first three kit are Dragon Models, then a Tamiya and lastly a 1/72 Matchbox. There are lots of color photos of these models and explanations how to build them. The ten pages after that are all the different modeling products concerning the Jagdpanzer IV. Kits and aftermarket products are listed and photos of each. This is a great reference section for modelers. There are about two to three black and white photos on all the other pages that are nice references to kit builders too. There are organizational charts describing a few of the units that used these tank destroyers.

I would like to thank Casemate and IPMS for the opportunity to read and review this great book.
