well as aircraft exhausts, Moskit also produce armoured vehicle exhausts
in the same thin metal. This set is designed for early model Panzer IVs (Aust.D),
Brummbärs and Stug IVs.
As with all Moskit exhausts, this set is manufactured from thin hollow
metal and finished in a burnt metal finish. This means that no painting is
required. The only thing that you may wish to do is add a black wash or
use black pastels to add a little more “depth” to the finish. You also get
four resin support brackets and a small instruction sheet.
Detail is excellent with the correct weld seams and bracket ridges around
the inlet pipes as well as being hollow. The exhausts look sturdy but in
fact should be handled with care as the metal is very thin. The review
sample had minor damage inflicted in the post but this actually looks
realistic and shows you can easily add your own damage if required (see
The set is designed for the Tamiya Pz. IV Ausf D but can be used on other
kits as well with minor modification of the mounting brackets (shown on
the instructions). Minor surgery is required on the target kit by drilling
out the holes in the rear plate for the exhaust outlet pipes but this
shouldn’t be a problem. I also note that it appears there are two support
brackets missing from the review sample of the Pz.IV exhausts.
The exhausts simply replace the kit items with the addition of the
mounting bracket. There is no cleaning up or other preparation required.
These exhausts will greatly add to the final appearance of the kit.
