I for one appreciate the comments of JeepsTanksGuns, there is a lot of mis-info that has accumulated over the years, and the citing of sources is fantastic for any discussion.  Parkers book on the King Kitty is invaluable. The work done is top notch, and as a basic modeling guide alone, it is worth the money. I have a few 1/16 tanks, and may wind up selling my 1/35 stuff to focus on this scale. I want to get a king kitty, and at some point a Panther. I'll hope that Trumpy does a Jagdpanther down the road, as that is one of my favs. I'd like to see some Sherman love too.

I agree there was a lot of miss informations, but still a Tiger or Panther in good working order, wich was not so frequent, where impressive beasts!

I won't go as far as Parker went, have his book and what he did is totaly mind blowing! The major modifications he did and the scratch build items are available on AFV site. He did resin version of the major things like the ammo racks for the hull, wich is a pain in the b.. to modify. So nice build, rework what is in open sight, add some details in the engine bay and the interior, a good paint job with weathering and some mud. Will have to learn how to do realistic mud!

So got my build all planned up I guess.

As far as I'm aware, a Jagdpanther is in the works now, Mike, to follow on the heels of the Panther. If worse comes to worst, there's always the Tamiya 1:16 kit.

I have the Bandai 1/24th kit with interior as a cushion. They also did the king Kitty, and panther, so I;m good for a bit.

 

I've got both the Academy (Tamiya) 1:25 Panther and Jagdpanther, but either one in 1:16 scale (specifically the Jagdpanther) would be absolutely great.
