This is the Zvezda Panzer IV Ausf. H in 1/72 scale, kit number 5017 released in 2018. I replaced the hull Schürzen were replaced with sheet plastic and I added Zimmerit made with Mr. Surfacer 500. A nice kit and loads of camo schemes to choose from. Decals are from Kagero Top Colors 32 and depict a Panzer IV from the 116th Panzer Division in Normandy, August 1944. I found the mixed camo patterns of the hull Schürzen and the rest of the vehicle interesting.

Very nice! Yes, interesting camo combo.
I haven't made any 1/72 Zvezda kits, only the Revell H.

Thanks Silurian! I have heard good things about the Revell kit, I was actually looking to buy that one but it was out of stock at the time.

Must be an interesting story there. Schurzen was pretty vulnerable to damage or being ripped off. Not unusual to see a missing panel or three. Wonder if these panels were sourced from a knocked out tank to replace this Panzer IVs original panels.

In any event very nice work and enjoyed following along on your blog.
