Griffon Model 1/35 Late Type Turret Side Armor Skirts for Panzer IV Ausf H/J




$14.50 SRP


Dragon Kit


Scott Van Aken

Anti-tank guns probably destroyed more tanks and other armor than did the guns of tanks themselves. One of the methods the Germans sought to try to detonate incoming rounds before they hit the main body of the tank were shields. In this set, Griffon Model has provided a set of turret shields for the Panzer IV ausf H/J. This set is only for the turret shield and includes not only the shields themselves, but all the attachment hardware as well as the hinged opening to allow the passage of fresh ammunition into the tank.

There is a full etched sheet plus a smaller one (for the netting on the bustle), as well as any wire needed for the hinges. Instructions are superbly done and provide detailed images on exactly what goes where. For those who'd like to replace the overly thick plastic bits that come in a kit or want to add this option to your next Dragon Panzer IV H/J, then this is the set for you.
