Latest big cat from Meng Models

German Tank Destroyer Sd.Kfz.173 Jagdpanther Ausf.G1 
From MENG Models
Product No #TS-039
Meng has given us what a lot of modellers (apart from you guys who want something so obscure only you want it - you know who you are) the newest in their 35th scale Panther family series, the Sd.Kfz 173 Jagdpanther.

We are also hoping for a G2 version if sense prevails, but no version of it is hinted at yet.
We got the blurb from Meng reads like this...
A crowd of prey approach on a sunny day. They are unaware of the danger not far away. A predator hiding in the busy stares at its prey and wait for them to enter the attack zone. Like a cheetah killing antelopes with its sharp teeth and claws, the Jagdpanther will use its 88mm Pak 43 anti-tank gun to destroy its prey.
The latest MENG TS-039 German Tank Destroyer Sd.Kfz.173 Jagdpanther Ausf.G1 model is 286.mm long and 96.26mm wide. This kit contains 975 parts. This kit includes a movable main gun and commander’s telescope, 2 mantlets, 4 mantlet mount rings, 2 gun barrels and 4 exhausts. With those optional parts, you can build a Jagdpanther Ausf.G in a specific period. Thanks to its framework and the design to accommodate the SPS-049 Panther Late Production Tracks & Movable Running Gear Parts kit, you will have more options to build a unique model.
This is all we have on the new Jagdpanther so far - more on it when we got more information cats! check out the Meng website also for more on their kits.
