Nice review. I really have a soft spot for Dragons Panthers, which in my humble opinion is the best ones on the market.
Is this offering the older "White Box" with DS Tracks instead of the Magic Tracks? Or is there any new features in this kit?

In the review he says the only difference are the decals and tracks.

Hmm, I can see all the replies in these review threads, but I can't open up the original post with the link to the review in it.

Nice review, only the box art looks a bit funny though... As the Panther was squeezed together along it's length, or rephrased: as if a bit too narrow and therefor more toylike!? ... and maybe the camo scheme just adds to this appearance...

This looks like Dragon returning to what they do best, definitely a possible for me. The R01 transfers aren't a big issue for me, after all there are only about 40 other Panzer Regiments to choose from who would also have a BefehlsPanther so numbered!

The kit is probably simply another rendition of Dragon's great Panther series (again) but I agree on the box art; they're simply not as good as they were a decade ago. New artists and the details aren't as good. Remember Volstad and his magnificent #6253 Tiger I late kit art? WoW! Now that's art! Wonder what happened to him in the intervening years?

I just started this kit only to find the body's rear section is a little warped causing fit issues. Excellent review. Thanks for the heads up on part D8.
