Looking for a Jagdpanther. Your thoughts?

I am thinking about getting a Jagdpanther in 1/35th and I do not know much about the bunch that are available today. Of those available, which do you prefer?
I always look for the holy Grail. Accuracy, fit and ease of construction are what I am looking for. Track can be replaced if there are issues with the kit track.

Try looking here: PMMS Vehicle Kit Reviews (perthmilitarymodelling.com)
Prolific on kit reviews as to accuracy, ease of build etc.

I really liked my Meng JP. There is a nice PE fret, nothing crazy. Good fit, looks accurate to my eye, but I’m not a rivet counter. Negative… the tracks are indy links with separate guide horns. Not that this is a bad thing just tedious work cutting, cleaning up parts. What worked nice for me was using a single edged razor to remove from the sprue. You can get in really close leaving minimum clean up on the 3 piece track links.
Have fun with what ever kit you pick !

I have always enjoyed Dragon German Armor,that is pretty much their niche.They make some excellent Jagdpanthers.They have an Early w/zimm with molded on #6494. Late Model G2 #6609 and an Early that needs zimm added # 6458

The Rye Field Model Jagdpanther is a spectacular kit and is available with or without an interior.

From David Coyne at Track Link. He build the Jagdpanther in a series and provides a lot of information about the kits and what they build into.

Those links are very comprehensive,thanks

Thanks for your replies. this has been helpful.

Go either Meng, RFM or Dragon. Tamiya generally take the odd short cut.

Meng Jagdpanther G1. I built this one recently and really enjoyed it. Very good fit, apparently accurate except for a few parts (idlers, I think) and the detail is really good without being fiddly.
