The German Panther tank is often mentioned as one of the best AFVs of WWII, combining excellent mobility, protection, and firepower all in one mechanically reliable package (any models after the D, anyway!).
Here's a new-generation kit from Dragon, one of their "Smart Kit" series of high-detail, low-hassle kits featuring clever engineering and employing the latest in slide-mold technology to achieve the highest level of detail with the lowest number of parts. The philosophy here is "work smarter, not harder," catering to the OOTB modeler who wants a high fidelity of detail and accuracy without having to make a ton of modifications along the way. The kit still includes plenty of parts, to be sure, but the clever engineering means modelers will face fewer hurdles getting them all together. The easy-to-assemble individual link "Magic Track" tracks are already cleaned up and are ready to be assembled, and feature the elusive guide horn detail (that is, they're open!) missing on most incarnations of this track.
This release specifically models a Panther G early production version that served with the 26th Panzer Regiment on the Italian front. These Panthers were unique in that they sported add-on armor on the roofs of their turrets to protect them from aerial attack, recreated in this kit by fine photo-etched and turned brass parts.
