Wow, great build, Roman. Very nice camouflage and details. The fighting compartment looks very realistic.

Thanks for sharing

This is a fantastic model! What was the original kit? I just began an Academy Flakpanzer IV Wirbelwind. I am using your build as a guide. Are there any references you could recommend?

Hi Dwaine, thanks for feedback! This is Dragon kit + upgrades from Griffon, Alliance Model Works and Lion Mark.

See the build log here

as for the references - Nuts & Bolts book is the best one.

Excellent, thanks for sharing this with us Roman. This has been one of my favorite Panzer IV variants for some time now and I look forward to building on or two of them some day.
