Thank you for the review, Darren. The book looks to be very useful. Does it break down the differences between early and late Jagdpanthers and the various tweaks from the three manufacturers? I have read some reviews and builds online and it seems some kits are based more on one manufacturer than another.

I've always liked these based on their colour plates and period photos and I'd guess that this book continues that pattern. On the other hand while experimentation is great I don't care much for the wild 'n weird school of interpretation in so far as colours are concerned; some shades are probably better off never being used for such applications and the obnoxious shades of green I've seen are not personally favored. As in I don't think that they're realistic. Or attractive.
