Love the 250s John, I have soft spot for recce vehicles and have far too many :grin:

I afraid i don`t really know the difference between a PzIVJ and a "H" to me they all look the same :cray:

Easiest way is the exhausts. Ausf. H has the barrel shaped one while the Ausf. J has two "pipes". No that I look at them it seems you have attached the Ausf. J exhausts the wrong way John. They should be pointing upwards, not backwards. :blush:

Lovely work John.

Daniel - early J's had the earlier muffler rather than the two exhaust pipes, making it even harder to distinguish between the two. One key distinction is the rear idler wheel, the lack of the gadget at the rear for the turret traverse (hand only for the J) and the spare tracks on the side in place of the air filter pod on the right fender. Strictly-speaking, John has not got the pipes upside down because that is precisely what the Revell instructions tell you to do! They should, of course, be the other way up, but it's hardly John's fault if the instructions are wrong in the first place.

Thanks, did not know that. Both my Ausf. J are made as autumn 44 production.

I know that the Revell instructions are wrong. Not blaming John, just being friendly and pointing it out.

No worries, and many thanx lads for the info. In my younger years I would have noticed. I just went and checked my old Nitto JS and they have them the right way..... :roll:
Now I'm not promising but I may cut them off and refit them......maybe... :grin:

Beobachtungswagen loosely means observation vehicle I think? Rheinmetall did convert one of these as a prototype in 1943, and rumors were that around 40 were produced later in the war, but rarely encountered.

No gun, only a dummy, but a long base optical rangefinder was fitted I think.

A bit naughty, as I included the options in the build. The heavy Komp can have either a 120 or 81mm mortar, a Pak 36 or 38, and one of the howitzers. If there are no tanks around they'll use both howitzers.......... ;)
