Meng joins the Panther race announcing a new Ausf. A late
Designed in cooperation with David Parker and The Tank Museum (Bovington), it is said to have over 1.100 parts.

Seems a good time now for Panther lovers, and we look forward to see which other versions may follow -Bergepanther at some point perhaps?

You see a lot of 5th SS Wiking Panthers with the wooden beam across the back.[/quote] Thanks.

I'd really like a good Leo 2 variant or two from some up-and-comer like Meng or Tacom. And so what's the big deal about a ditching beam on the back of Viking's Panther's? Use 'em and you often lose 'em.

More options for one of the three best selling subjects. Will be nice to see both Tacom's and Ming's. Using the best of techniques to produce a kit these days will undoubtably give us better options. I, for one, am not fazed by lack of zimmerit because it does give guys like Cavalier and Atak, guys who have kept our hobby more interesting for the non-zimmerit specialists like myself, from going out of business. It is obvious to me that interest in the hobby is so widespread that really good companies who do kits and the ones that do accessories see potential in doing repeats. What we don't want is one big company becoming something like the modeling version of Google or Facebook, crushing all opposition and then being so benevolent that they won't respond to their customers.

Not just Vietnam, I want Korea too! Just think what could be done- Churchill black prince, post war Pershing's and T34s!

I've never heard of Black Prince even leaving the UK, never mind being sent all the way to Korea. There were Churchill VIIs there though (Crocs but used without flame trailer).

I heard on a TV documentary that some were deployed, but it may have been a case of a vehicle being confused with another, a bit like every German tank being classed as a Tiger. Either way, a kit of it would be very nice.

Didn't they deploy a limited number of Centurians to Korea for field trials?
about 18 hours ago
Um, no. They were deployed as the mainstay of the British armored force. The first were rushed to the ETO in WW2 for trials, just missing the war. By Korea they were in full production as the standard tank in the mark 3, the only kit if which remains the ancient Tamiya kit from 1970. AFV club has yet to do a Korean War Centurion. They haven't done the Churchill VII yet either, also used in Korea. And if Takom could just backdate their M47 to an M46 or Hobby Boss update their M26A1 to M46 for Korea?

Hush, maybe if they believe they did, we will finally get a kit of the damned thing!
