Just wondering if anybody has built one and what they thought of it?

Zvezda has reissued at least two different companies' PzKpfw IV kits. Both the 1970s Italeri panzer and one of the 1990s Dragon kits (an Ausf E). #3620 is a new tool Ausf H.

I built the Pzkpfw III ausf H awhile back, but I'm tweeking it with photo-etch parts. It was surprisingly a very good build.

Zvezda 3564 is the venerable Italeri kit from the 70s. If someone just gave me one, I wouldn't throw it out, but it's not something I would spend money on these days. The newer kit is 3620 as Rob said. Has some weird issues like the side skirts having Zimmerit texture while the hull doesn't, and some simplified details. It's a decent basic kit, and usually not too expensive.
