In-Boxed: 1/35th scale Sd.Kfz.171 Panther Ausf.A Late from Meng
Panther, Panthers, Panthers! Here there and everywhere right now. Along with the tried & true Tamiya, ICM, Revell and everyone else there are three brand new-tooled Panther’s coming into the market within the space of a few months. We have the first of the new breed from Meng in the 35th scale Sd.Kfz.171 Panther Ausf.A Late kit. Andy gives us a look at the all new kit before he starts making it in his “In-Boxed” section today.
In-Boxed: Sd.Kfz.171 Panther Ausf.A Late Manufacturer – Meng Models Product Number – Tyrannosaurus Series TS-035 Price - HKD 206.00/ GBP 20.06/ EUR 22.15/ USD 26.41 from Hobbyeasy
Late last year Meng launched their highly anticipated, and very impressive King Tiger onto the modelling scene. For a company who, up until then, had been better known for their more unusual subject choices, the King Tiger was quite a change of direction into more mainstream territory. It was a decision that paid off though as, for me at least, it's the best KT kit on the market.
A year on, and Meng is now following up on that release with that other perennial favourite of German armour modellers, the Panther. There can't be many modellers who haven't at least heard of the Panther. Along with the Tiger and Sherman, it's one of the iconic tanks of WWII, and for many people, it's considered to be one of the best all-around tanks of the war. The Panther's development can be traced back to a design project in the late '30's to create a replacement for the Panzer III and IV. However, after the German Army first encountered the Russian T-34, they realised the initial designs simply weren't up to the job of taking on the killer soviet medium tank. The design specifications were hurriedly upgraded, incorporating many ideas taken from the T-34, including the use of sloped armour, and by 1943 the Panther began to hit the battlefield. The initial version, the Ausf. D still had many teething troubles when it had its baptism of fire at Kursk in the summer of 1943, and many were lost due to mechanical failures. As a result of these experiences, the Ausf.A was rolled out in September '43, and featured several improvements to increase the reliability and effectiveness of the tank. With over 2000 units built, the Ausf.A became the second most produced Panther variant and continued in use until the end of the war.
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".
