Looks very nice . Good to see you remembered to add the spare barrel boxes ( engine deck sides ) and remove the small turret motor  muffler ( not needed as these thing turned by hand ! ) , the Warlord crew just put their resin turret on a standard tank hull  ::)

Attention to details is what we are good at... and we are not WLG!  Don't like the comparison, lol.  ;)

Well you can't avoid the comparisons with WG.  It comes with the territory!

Have the errors in the Ausf J design been fixed?  I'd like to see the basic Panzer IV types on their way before the specialised variants.

All had been taken care of, sir!

The specialised variants are something that is quick to do with whatever drawings are on hand... and had to do them "before" the project went lukewarm.  Restarting older projects have a lot of preparation work to do.

Wirbelwind turret would be a neat option. Didn't know about the small details the WLG one is missing, will skip that and wait for Rubicon then!

Just curious have you looked at the Ostwind etc as well? Probably being a bit optimistic on what would fit sprue wise but an expansion box like your half track ones with Wirbelwind and Ostwind turrets would be ace.

I suspect a Wirbelwind would be an option after Rubicon add the 37mm Flak 43 to their library (also used on the SDKFZ 7 http://forum.rubiconmodels.com/index.php?topic=514.msg7342#msg7342).

I have one of the WLG Wirblewinds on the paint table right now.
As others have said, the hull is a bog standard resin panzer IV ausf.H and includes gun cleaning tubes for the 75mm and left the motor gear housing on the rear.
There was quite a lot of work to get the hull looking right, but overall, now correct, it is still very basic detail.

The Wirblewind and the Jagdpanther are the 2 models i am now most looking forward to.

Having said that I am also wanting 3 decent Panzer IV ausf J which should (I hope) be available soon.

Cheers
Tim

That is looking very good.

The forward planning on the new Panzer IV is really paying off.

Looking good . Just so you know , you've got the jack block on the Whirbel mounted up side down , and  the driver hatches should probably not have the round signal port hatch on them , IRC that was phased out in the E version . Aside from that , turrets looking great

Oh my!
When may I get these?
An 88 on a Pzkw IV chassis would be a nice one off, cool objective but a Flakpanzer Wirbelwind, what a dream come true.
It looks to be a fantastic kit. 
I don't want to wait until 2019.  I hope it's available soon.
SOON!
