I just got the Meng Ausf. A Late Panther....I like it a lot. This is added to my ever growing stash...but I really want to build it. I'll put it on the front burner. I do agree that Meng prices are very reasonable, especially if ordered from Asian suppliers like HLJ.

Very nice-looking, shame that I've already got this covered by a couple of Dragon kits, though I do look forward to the build review.



You won't find much WWII German armor that Dragon has not done. For simplicity, I would go with Meng. As well, Meng will likely not have a ridiculous price tag. Just look at the cost of their Panthers, Tigers and King Tigers. Quality and simplicity at an lower price, and multimedia. I'm basing this on Meng's history. These factors will see Meng's jagdpanther added to my stash, before Dragon.

Very nice it looks like the way Dragon used to be when you got a box full of extras

I am so happy I never invested in a Jagdpanther. I love that they're acknowledging the various production and unit fittings.

And bolts and nuts will be off and the commander's spare binocular lens cleaning kit will be missing from the interior.

Who would have thought we'd get a pile of better and newer Panthers? Everyone thought Dragon owned it. Choice is wonderful.

And with Takom and Miniart doing Lees and Grants; all the variants?

We may see that Pakistani M4A1E9 Firefly, Chilean M51 or Lebanese M50.

I'm interested in this. I 'll wait as well and see how many more come out and who offers the best deal. I wish they would start something like this over the Sherman. So many variants that haven't been released, or at least given proper attention, and none with an interior.

This truly the Year of the Panther (variant)...I like it and will probably wait for Takom to release their version before I decide on which one to buy. You KNOW Takom will release one soon.
