Unassembled plastic model kit in 1/72 scale of a German WWII anti-tank gun fitted in a Panzer IV chassis an with a fixed armoured upper structure, commonly known as JAGDPANZER IV.

Kit includes two plates of PE (photo etched) detail parts and decal sheet for three different markings. Tracks are in the link & length format.

The Jagdpanzer IV, Sd.Kfz. 162, was a German tank destroyer based on the Panzer IV chassis and built in three main variants. As one of the casemate-style turretless Jagdpanzer (tank destroyer, literally "hunting tank") designs, it was developed against the wishes of Heinz Guderian, the inspector general of the Panzertruppen, as a replacement for the Sturmgeschütz III (StuG III). Guderian objected against the needless, in his eyes, diversion of resources from Panzer IV tank production, as the Sturmgeschütz III was still more than adequate for its role.
