Don't forget the Panther II. Both similiar vehicles, at least the hull. I want to say that the idea was to simplify the big cat production.

Damn, I don't know if there is any resurrecting that. Looks like you would have to sand it all down, putty, sand again, redo some welds, and scratch or scrounge some details. Might be easier to...
