This kit is a similar release to Tristar's earlier (#038) Sturmpanzer IV Early which came out in 2008. This version is the later mid-production variant which also includes a partial interior. Something the earlier release did not have. The kit also includes ample photo-etch and separate tracks.
Decals and color and marking information are included for three different vehicles. All in the same unit in Italy during 1944, Abteilung 216.
Since this is just a preview I will let the photos speak for themselves. We will be passing this kit on to someone who can give this kit the full review it deserves. There is certainly a lot of amazing detail in this release.
