OKB offers three very similar products, all in 35th scale, for use on a Pz.IV . These items are “return rollers” for the Type 2 (product S35007), the Type 3 (product S35008), and the Type 4 (product S35009). This review will focus on the rollers for the Type 4 (product S35009).
The roller parts are contained in a small zip lock baggie. A paper label is stapled to the baggie which serves to identify the “Type” for which these parts are engineered, and to provide a secure closure so that none of the parts go astray.
Even in 35th scale these roller parts are rather small measuring just about a ¼ inch in diameter. But there is nothing “delicate” about the parts. The molding is very crisp and the detail, although very small, is very well done. The detail is well molded and very small. With detail that is somewhat larger than the Type 2 and Type 3 return rollers, the retaining devices on the Type 4 rollers are much larger and can easily be seen. No assembly instructions come with the OKB product and none is needed. Each roller consists of an “outer” and “inner” piece which fit together very well.
Maintaining the same level of quality as the roller sets for the Type 2 and the Type 3, the size and detail of the rollers for the Type 4 are well manufactured. This roller set will definitely add “detail” to your model.
This product is highly recommended for its quality of manufacture, clean and crisp detail, and attention to the slight differences in the detail across the roller product range. Thanks to OKB for providing this sample to IPMS for review.
