And a variant I hadn't seen before:





Apparently, one can even get a conversion for it (just to bring in the modelling aspect a little ;)):

Ahmad Syalabi has shared some images of his Schutzenpanzer Caracal (based on a modified Panther G hull) in the gallery at Track-Link forums.  Unfortunately hot-linking images is disabled so use the html provided to visit that page and see the WIP images and finished model. 

Description provided by Ahmad:
Quote
Building upon the idea of the Kratzchen, the Caracal APC was born.

The Caracal uses Panther G's chassis with some slight modifications -
- Engine was moved to the front right
- Slightly less armour than the Panther

The Caracal's designed to carry 10 men in addition to the 3 crew on board. Unlike the lightly armoured half tracks and armoured cars, the Caracals are able to engage in combat along side panzer grenadiers as well as the tanks that they accompany.

I find it remarkable that you both came up with the same fin protecting armour sheets at the rear of the launcher.  Spooky, parallel evolution?   I prefer your's Greg with the slightly sloped ends to those pieces of armour though.

Something that I just stumbled across:



I believe it is purely fictional.  That said though, one could combine a Panther kit with a Grille Ausf. M (see below)...

Greg's given us the front engined SPG a couple of posts above - what about a front engined Panther tank, Merkava-style? ???

Well there was this proposed 128mm gun armed "Jagdpanther II" which I believe put the engine in the front (or at least middle):



One can get a kit for it:

Section taken from first model (recon or command version) can be grafted in second one in order to produce the PANTHERKAVA. Of course open, it is WWII.
Hehehe!

Take yer Panther-Kava and put a Jagdpanther casemate on it and you'll have a Baby Elefant.  ;D

Not stuck in my head but that tune pops up every time I read or hear the phrase "baby elephant", or see film footage of the real thing.

What if arguably some of the best WWII tank designs are mixed to produce the BEST ONE.
