I can't help but feel that we're drowning in a sea of options. Geez, Dragon itself must have way over a half-dozen variants of BOTH Porsche & Henschel models. Then Tamiya, Meng, Takom, etc. How about offering something that no one else has or hasn't updated in a coon's age? Ditto on the Panthers & Tiger Is coming out about now. Scratch that, I'm thrilled to see the new Rye & Takom's Panther with interiors and the much-anticipated Bergepanther (gotta get me one!). Okay, so I'm conflicted. Oh well, variety's the spice of like and all that stuff...Go Trumpeter!

I also asked "why?" However, in Asian markets, this may sell well.

I like it. You can never have too many Panzers. Plus... the Asian hobby market is no.1 in the world.
