Jagdpanzer Iv L/48 Paperback / softback
Part of the Photosniper series
Highly detailed publication covering the World War II Jagdpanzer IV L/48 - a tank destroyer based on the Panzer IV chassis.
The almost-vertical front hull plate was replaced by sloped armour plates and internally, the layout was changed to accommodate the new superstructure, moving the fuel tanks and ammunition racks.
Since the Jagdpanzer lacked a turret, the engine which originally powered the Panzer IV's turret could be eliminated. The new superstructure had 80 mm thick sloped armour, which gives a much greater armour protection than a vertical armour of 100 mm.
To make the manufacturing process as simple as possible, the superstructure was made out of large, interlocking plates which were welded together. Containing dozens of archive black and white and colour photos, including 15 pages of close-up and walkaround shots, and 4 pages of colour artwork profiles, this is an ideal reference for both the enthusiast and modeler, with free decals included. About the SeriesPhotosniper is a classic series of highly illustrated photo books on the best machines of war, creating, with numerous images, a close-up, walk-around view for each aircraft or vehicle.
With emphasis on the key features of each machine, including their variations, artwork, markings, insignia and modifications, customizing and creating a model could not be easier.
