The Pzkw IV J greatly interests me. I have been waiting for one with an interior for a long time. I hope they do the H next, and maybe the G as well.

This is something that I can now scratch off my wish list.

Maybe an SdKfz251D with the RFM treatment... Sorry about that.

Dropping full interior Pz IV and Sherman, and moving into the Soviet WWII market, all in one shot. Wow!!!

I wish they do the /8 ambulance someday. I am surprised no one does that one. It is more than just a /1 with a couple of stretchers.

Wonderful news. The Sherman and PZ IV interiors have been wanted for some time. And, another T-34 85 tank! I liked how they did their modified version and hoped to see the 85. Looks like I'll be broke again.

As Artie Johnson used to say, "Very interesting." The KV and T-34/85 look great, so it seems as though my stash will grow some more.

MiniArt also announced a PzIV Ausf J with interior and a T-34/85 (with interior as well). Nice to see some competition, I'm wondering which of these I'm going to pick up, RFM or MiniArt

While I welcome the new full-interior kits I kit bashed my own Pz IV with full interior months ago using the new Border kit and the interior from the Trumpeter kit from several years ago; can't remember which was the donor kit. Still, this is always a good thing that can only get better.

Next question will be how does the Trumpeter kit match up to the RFM KV-1.

I really (read: REALLY!) do hope they follow that line of German stuff drops to eventually get us an all new Pz.III (later model like L or M at best) with full interior eventually. Now THAT would crush my "no further buying strategy" in the blink of an eye...

As they say, "go big or go home". RFM has answered many modeler's prayers with a full interior Sherman and to a lesser extent the Pz IV.
I hope they're released soon and some member does a in depth build log on the pair !
Thanks Carlos for the heads up !
