Quoting claw paradox the panzer IV turrets could have been done better, but I understand that you needed enough pieces to make four of them. are all of the pieces lego? the rangefinder thingies look like they're not. overall good job!
The turret was short-barrel version, and it looks poor. In true history, these turret were replaced by long-barrel turret after Pz IV/F2. Al parts are lego pieces.

Quoting John Brady Is this something that actually existed, or did you come up with this on your own. Either way, great design!
I had hard work on the WWII German Panzer tanks and Kriegsmarine(German Navy) and designed this one by myself. Maybe the German really wanted this one in the history.
