New from Meng Models. Panther Tank TS-035 1/35
Posted on 24th January 2018

The latest arrival from Meng Model is the stunning 1:35 scale German Panther Tank. A truly brilliant kit, available from stock now, for immediate delivery.

The 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 wantTen 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.
