That 1/1 scale PZ IV is impressive. A few pics of the RFM M4A3E8, but nothing on the Meng kit.

I really like the look of the Haseagwa Combine. Overall I like the 1/35 construction equipment grouping they have been making.

Same here! I was hoping AFV Club or Trumpeter would make one!

Hi

As a personal choice, spending option, I'd go for the Meng Jagdpanther without interior but have the rail flatbed instead, rather than a Jagdpanther with interior.

Some of the stuff I just can't see the fascination for, but welcome the diversity of the manufacturers in the hope it will continue to encourage folks to make models.

With a different paint job and a jet engine or two that rice harvester could find work in a Sci-Fi movie

You made the right choice. The Tamiya Achilles is superb and the figures are excellent. The AFV Club Achilles looks like a rebox of their ancient and not too accurate Achilles with the spring loaded barrel and awful wheels as well as an incorrectly shaped turret. But at least it included vehicle serial numbers on the decal sheet (Tamiya does not).
