I just seen that Academy is going to release a Sherman Jumbo
is a rebox of the Tasca kit or Mengs?

Absolutely, not Meng . Academy is starting to rebox Asuka kits. They are issuing the Panzer II Luchs. The next Kit number in sequence is the kit number for the jumbo Sherman. I think it will be the Asuka jumbo Sherman. Thatís good news because Asukaís distribution seems to be intermittent
