I recently ran across a listing for a 1/16 Scale Panther G by Trumpeter 00928 and 00929 in the Scalemates listings as issued in 2016.
I can't find any location that is selling this model. However, I have seen images of a build (it shows that the kit has an interior).
Does anyone know if this is really out and where it can be obtained?
This is not an RC or Taigen model
Thanks,
Tom

Tom,

I don't see it listed on Trumpeter's website, so perhaps it hasn't been released yet. Not surprising. AFV Club took almost 4 years to release their M40 from the time that they announced it.

You can try contacting them. Here's a link to Trumpeters contact page.

I did see this kit built up on Trumpeters stand at Scale Modelworld at Telford in November. It looks pretty busy and has rubber type tires.

The best of luck on getting a response from Trumpeter.

The kit isn't available yet, but it's coming soon! There were a few errors in the kit, and these were pointed out to Trumpeter so perhaps they are reworking the moulds, hence the delay.

Well, it's not making it out in 2016, I can guarantee that!

It's coming, though. It's real. Probably summer 2018 if they're showing buildups.

Best way to get in touch with them is through their Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/TrumpeterModel/
