Typical of these manuals, the works are absolutely beautiful. These builds contain lots of brand name extras but also contain large quantities of sheet and shaped styrene and home made resin parts as well. Both authors/builders tell a concise and detailed building sequence with well detailed photographs to accompany the write ups. For those of you that love the Panzer IV, this is another MUST HAVE book.

Osprey's Modelling series shows how advanced modelers use their knowledge, skills and expertise to create incredibly and correctly detailed models of all sorts... Each book discusses how a variety of model kits are used to make authentic looking WWII vehicles... If you are looking for books that provide the high detailing to take your miniatures to the next level, you should check these books out.
Michael Koznarsky, Historical Miniature Gamer (Issue 11)
It's becoming a litany, but I genuinely feel that ALL modelers, no matter what their level of experience, could get something out of this book. That could be something as simple as painting tracks or the use of different materials or simply just a different approach to a particular problem. In that respect along with the very inspirational nature of the builds, I have no doubts in recommending this book...

All of the segments are (of course) complimented by excellent photographs, each of which is accompanied by very informative captions... If modeling a Pz.Kpfw.IV Lang is in your future, this book belongs on the work bench right next to your kit and tools. Highly recommended.
Frank V. De Sisto, missing-lynx.com (September 2007)
All of the articles are superbly done with nice color photos showing how the builder went from base kit and a pile of aftermarket to the end product. It is full of informative hints and tips and how-to pieces that can be used by modelers of just about any genre in addition to armor builders... Overall, it is another fine addition to the Osprey Modelling series and is something that modelers of all interest levels will find useful.
