This is an injection-plastic military vehicle model kit.
As WWII started, the never-ending race for improved firepower and armor protection also began. The German Panzer IV started life as a fire support vehicle for the Panzer III gun tank, but the demands of the battlefield forced it to adopt the role of a gun tank, and to alter the design of the tank itself with a longer-barreled gun. Pz. IV Ausf. J is a good example of the results of this transition. The J was fitted with the long-barreled 75mm gun.
Here's another of Dragon's/Cyber-Hobby's "Smart Kits," a series of high-detail, low-hassle kits featuring clever engineering and employing the latest in slide-mold technology to achieve the highest level of detail with the lowest number of parts. The philosophy here is "work smarter, not harder," catering to the OOTB (Out Of The Box) modeler who wants a high fidelity of detail and accuracy without having to make a ton of modifications along the way. The kit still includes plenty of parts, to be sure, but the clever engineering means modelers will face fewer hurdles getting them all together. Although the initial release of this kit included "Magic Track" tracks as a first-release bonus, the current release has DS tracks instead. Markings are included for 4 vehicles.
