Meng Model is set to release its second Panther kit, the model D.
Meng Modelís German Medium Tank Sd.Kfz.171 Panther Ausf.D (TS-038) is an injection-molded kit developed in collaboration with The Tank Museum in Bovington, UK, and Mr. David Parker, editor of the Meng AFV Modeller magazine. This kit includes over 1,000 parts including photo-etched details. Four finishing options are available to the modeler. When built, the finished model is 252.9mm long, 98.6mm wide and 83.6mm high.

Scheduled for release as well are two detail sets: Sd.Kfz.171 Panther Early Production Tracks & Movable Running Gear Parts (SPS-057), and German Medium Tank Sd.Kfz.171 Panther Ausf.D Zimmerit Decal (SPS-058).

I will probably get this one. So many choices, and so little time.

I'm going to wait until the full-interior variant comes out. That would save me from having to buy an early A and back-dating it to a D variant as I had planned. Almost way too many options. Enjoying it none the same. Sort of.

Hum...... Hope meng is working on cold war chechnya war T-72B 1989 and other T-72A T-72 ural series, Panther D is not tempting to me simply bcz there is DML's awesome kit out there.

Would be nice to see a head-to-head comparison, but one thing is sure: Meng Panthers are significantly cheaper (just over 20 Euros).

Im currently working on their late A model, also using their zimm set, lovin both so far. Ive built every Dragon Panther kit made, and this one is just as good in my opinion. The zimmerit decals are really easy to use as well, and perfect fit so far

It looks like Meng's kit will depict the later radiator fan covers, like all the other D kits, rather than offering the pre-production covers which were installed on many, if not all, of the vehicles at Kursk.
