MENG releases a new Panther Ausf.D Turret (Travel Mode) resin kit.
The turret and barrel are covered by canvas. The texture designed by digital sculpting looks very natural. You can use it on MENG TS-038 German Medium Tank Sd.Kfz.171 Panther Ausf.D to get a unique Panther Ausf.D in the travel mode.

Sorry, but I don't see a "clear copy"; I see two covered turrets but the coverings are not sculpted the same way at all. You can hardly claim to have originated the concept unless you were alive and working for the German military at that time. So, really, both of you are copying the German vehicle transport crews.

brekinapez Of course, this is a very common idea for a Panther turret... .

It's not even close to a clear copy, and If I was Meng I would block you as well from suggesting such a thing on their website. And having said that, I think the Panzer Art version/your version is much better than Meng's version of the same idea, your version looks more realistic to my eyes Matt

This reflects quite poorly, on Panzerart. I suppose all Tiger 1's are copies? What about Shermans? T-34's? Copyright infringement is a serious accusation.

Unless the German manufacturers applied for a patent, anyone is free to make them. If Meng wants to sell their own you can hardly blame them for not wanting someone to post on their facebook a competitive product.

As was pointed out, on FB these are two different configurations.
