I popped into an LHS that specializes in old kits, and amongst many funky things there that I never knew existed, I ran across a Monogram kit released in 1984 titled Tank Hunter, Combat Diorama
, which featured a 1/48 P-51B Mustang and a 1/48 Panther on a terrain base (Mustang on a stick!). From the box photos, both models looked pretty good.
I imagine the Mustang was Monogram's standard release, but what was that Panther? From the Aurora mold, perhaps? It had a Panther A hull, but a "chinned" mantlet from a late G. Also, in the pix on the box, it was very nicely zimmed. Cheap, too: only 4,000 yen ($36 USD).
Anybody know anything about this funky dio kit?
Also, they had Monogram's 1/32 Screamin' Mimi
...I might just go back and pick up that tour down memory lane!
