Excuse my ignorance, but I'm curious as to the purpose of the additional barrel for the Panther...? Is it to model a different variant or mark?

The Panther is a relatively early kit, and has a few (mostly minor) issues.  It's gun barrel is kind of weedy, and isn't properly round.  This one looks more robust and much better moulded.

Just noticed the lower row of  side mounted spare track links ( on both sides ) are molded as one long piece , no breaks to make it three separate links . The top row is OK though . Sorry tried to copy your picture to hi light  the problem  , but it won't let me ( or I'm doing it wrong ...again  ::) )

I see what you mean.

Also the holes in the track shoes are not consistent between the two rows. It is most obvious in the photograph above on the right hand pair.

This is TS1, so expected a lot of goofed up stuff to happen.  We are already compiling a list of fixes.  this is why we called them TS1, TS2, TS3... ;)
