New German Tank Ahead
The German Panzer III and Panzer IV tanks were not the opponents of the Soviet T-34 and KV series tanks in the battlefields. Even the Tiger I heavy tank that started to appear sporadically in 1942 could hardly affect the overall situation. However, in the summer of 1943, a German tank with a T-34 appearance appeared on the front of Kursk. It had inclined armor which was hard to be penetrated. It was also equipped with a 75mm long barrel tank gun which was more powerful than the one on Tiger I. This tank was called Panther Ausf.D by the Germans. As more Panthers appeared on the front lines, the Soviets and the Allied forces find the Germans were still a powerful opponent.
This 1/35 scale German Medium Tank Sd.Kfz.171 Panther Ausf.D plastic model kit is another kit of famous WWII armor MENG release with the help of The Tank Museum in Bovington, UK and the editor Mr. David Parker of the Meng AFV Modeller magazine. This kit includes 1040 parts and the finished model is 252.9mm long, 98.6mm wide and 83.6mm high. The SPS-057 Sd.Kfz.171 Panther Early Production Tracks & Movable Running Gear Parts and SPS-058 German Medium Tank Sd.Kfz.171 Panther Ausf.D Zimmerit Decal will be available at the same time.

Panther, One of the Most Feared Tanks of WWII
Panther was the most excellent German medium tank during WWII. When it was deployed, Germany was greatly weakened. Thanks to its unparalleled performance, it became one of the backbones the Germans could rely on. It was even used by the opponents to the end of the war. Its 7.5 cm KwK 42 L/70 long tank gun could penetrate almost all the armor of its rivals. Its inclined armor provided better protection than the Tiger I. The Maybach HL230 engine could drive the vehicle to run at the high speed of 50km/h. Its wide tracks and interleaved road wheels could turn the uneven earth to a flat ground. The Panther was a perfect response to the requirements of German armor units. Now the Panther has become one of favorite armor kits modellers want.
Ten years later, another Panther Ausf. A plastic model kit is coming. The TS-035 German Medium Tank Sd.Kfz. 171 Panther Ausf. A Late is another kit of famous WWII armor MENG release with the help of The Tank Museum in Bovington, UK and the editor Mr. David Parker of the Meng AFV Modeller magazine. The assembled model is 251.8mm long, 98.6mm wide and 85.27mm high. A total of 1,118 parts are included in the kit. MENG’s team has designed this kit with the experience gained from the previous kits and insisted to bring more fun to different modellers. We believe you will enjoy it!

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ernst Barkmann (later Ernst Schmuck-Barkmann) (25 August 1919 – 27 June 2009) was a German tank commander in the Waffen-SS of Nazi Germany during World War II. He is known for the actions undertaken at “Barkmann’s corner,” in which it was claimed he halted a major U.S. Army armoured advance in Normandy on 27 July 1944, for which action he received the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross.
Barkmann joined a unit of the SS-Verfügungstruppe in 1939, and served during the occupation of Poland. He was posted for a time as an instructor of SS volunteers in the Netherlands. In winter 1942/43 he was posted to the SS Division Das Reich on the Eastern Front, with which he took part in the Third Battle of Kharkov.
In February 1944, Das Reich was ordered to France to form a part of the 5th Panzer Army, the armoured reserve for the expected Allied invasion. Following Operation Overlord, the Allied invasion of June 1944, the division reached the front in early July and fought against the American forces near Saint-Lô. Barkmann was awarded the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross. Barkmann participated in the Ardennes Offensive in December 1944 and the fighting on the Eastern Front in the spring of 1945.
Barkmann's reputed actions in Normandy were challenged by the military historian Steven Zaloga in his 2015 work Armored Champion: The Top Tanks of World War II. He analysed the Allied war records, and was unable to locate the losses claimed by Barkmann. He attributed the narrative of Barkmann's corner to the "propaganda efforts of the Waffen-SS".
