This is my second Panzer IV H company. I felt compelled to pick up two boxes of Plastic Soldier Company Panzer IVs. I supplemented the PSC with two Peter Pig Panzer IV.

Over the years, I have accumulated a fair number of Panzer IV tanks. Mostly from Battlefront, but with the release of PSC tanks I added another company of tanks. Then I got to thinking… wouldn’t it be cool to see how other manufacturers stack up against Battlefront. In this post we will look at the Battlefront Panzer IV H with metal schurzen, Battlefront Panzer IV H with plastic schurzen, Battlefront Panzer IV J, Plastic Solider Company Panzer IV H, Peter Pig Panzer IV H, Quality Castings Panzer IV H, and the Old Glory Panzer IV H.
I seem to have a strange addiction… I like to collect StuG III G models. Luckily, this addiction has only manifested its self in 15mm plus one 1/48 scale model that I have not assembled yet. Whats next after 1/48 scale? will it ever end? Perhaps my wife can accept the fact that I can sell the house and buy a real working one. Not sure she would be happy because, I wont be able to drop the kids off at school in it!
I wasn’t completely inactive over the last couple months. Here are a few photos of the miniatures I have completed during November and December.
I picked up this little gem earlier this year for less than $10. I have a horrible habbit of buying toy soldiers with steep discounts. Here you see the ME 262 attacking a Peter Pig Sherman Calliope which I also just finished to give me a full battery (2 BF and 2 PP)
My kid likes big tanks and the bigger the better. Ever since he started playing World of Tanks he has gotten a good sense of the types of heavy tanks that were in production and those that were in design during WW2. I have not been able to find an US T29 heavy tank in 15mm scale yet, but I was able to find a German Maus heavy tank and Russian KV5s and KV3.
One of the most iconic photos of the Sherman in WW2 was with sandbags mounted as an effort to reduce the effectiveness of the panzerfaust.
