I can see how it might be a Jagdpanther.  That would be very cool - and the fact that Rubicon are tarting up their Panther tracks supports the possibility of a Panther variant.  It would be very cool if they could squeeze in a Bergpanther as well...

Funny thing is I can also see how it could appear to be a Tiger II as I continue to squint at it.
Still, I strongly believe it's a Jagdpanther.

This topic will be moved to "General Discussion" when the project is officially announced.

Great news!  I'm sure it will be awesome.  Any chance of squeezing a Bergpanther in as well?

Very nice . I think a JP or 2 would fit well with the rest of my armor . And a BP would be awesome , but a whole new lower hull might  have to molded . Rubicons lower hulls are boxed in , not full to the floor  so it would to hard to add full crew seats , transmission and radio etc , that is so visible when the drivers roof is removed . Maybe they might redesign the hull for the JP kit and a  BP would possible . If not ,maybe make it a add on kit with new upper hull and a forced perspective insert of a driver figure and transmission , the winch box ( rear spade ! ) , and various tools etc , sort of like the add on kits for the 250 /251 half tracks . They show us something new and we always want more  :-[

Pretty sure heer46 does a conversion kit

 The Heer46 conversion kit is good & fits perfectly on the Rubicon model - it's down to whether the level of detail provided is enough (it's a little light if you're going to be purist about it & the 20mm barrel is huge, better to replace it with some brass rod) - & whether you like resin/metal add-ons.

Spade looks good , so does the crane parts and the winch box from what I can see on their web site . Can't really see the winch that well which IMO is a real focal point , for me at least on this vehicle ., And they don't supply any driver compartment internals  if you remove the driver's roof , which you need to do if you use the 20mm ( only one vehicle mounted this IRC ) . A nice effort , but a couple of things  lacking IMO . What with the price of a kit for the hull plus the  $36.00 for this resin kit ,  plus the extra bits you'll have to scratch / find , I'll pass on this one

Rubicon are just going to provide all the different Jagdpanther variants, so no Bergepanther.

I did too - but my dreams were dashed.  It would have been an awesome kit...
