Description

This is an injection-plastic military vehicle model kit.

The venerable German Panzer IV chassis saw a lot of duty during WWII, including anti-aircraft duty. With the addition of an open-topped turret and four 20mm AA guns, the Flakpanzer IV "Wirbelwind" ("whirlwind") presented a formidable curtain of bullets to any low-flying Allied aircraft.

Here's another new-generation "Smart Kit" from Dragon, 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. The easy-to-assemble individual-link Magic Tracks are already cleaned up and are ready to be assembled. The kit includes newly tooled "Razor Edge" turret parts with accurate weld seams, a detailed quad gun mount assembly, and optional parts for many other features. Markings are included for five vehicles. See what's so smart about Dragon's new series of "Smart Kits-- order this Flakpanzer IV Wirbelwind for your German AFV collection today!
