It looks great Stephen. Very nice work and the Panthers are fine runners too. We don't see that camo pattern often but my 333 is similar. I have seen many JPs with it. Joe in GA has one and he does very well with it.




It is just to nice for me to battle with.and I am looking to sell it if anyone is interested.

Would anyone happen to have a spare Tamiya Panther G hatch assembly? Mine broke some time ago and I seem to have misplaced the parts.

Alternatively, does anyone know where I can find the correct sprue?

E parts number 9005850. You could probably order it from the AAF tank museum or eBay:

Default Tamiya torsion bars

Can anyone offer some tips as to how to install The Tamiya torsion bars and suspension arms for the RC Panther? I've already broken two of the arms and not any closer to figuring this out!

Any assistance appreciated

The chassis of the Jagdpanther display model should be the same as the Panther. Andy starts installing the suspension around the 5:00 minute mark.
