Kit Preview : 1/76 US Casts Kugelblitz AA tank
About the manufacturer
All I know is that US Casts is no longer in activity. Judging from the 2 kits I have the quality is comparable to Model Transport.

About the kit
The tracks are too large. They are 1/72 so new ones need to be sourced. I will use spares from Vacucast which have the later grooved sprockets and idlers. The rest scales out to 1/76. The hull is actually modified. The hatches are slanted which is not the case on any of the Panzer IV variants.
Overall a very nice little kit.
