I am currently using Meng’s Jagdpanther parts to detail Tamiya’s Jagdpanther due to the Meng kit being damaged in transit (eBay purchase). Looking at Meng’s rear storage bins, they look undersized compared to Tamiya’s and photos I’ve looked up. I’m assuming Meng’s are more accurate, but it’s hard to tell. Can anyone shed some light on the subject?

The rear end of Tamiya’s Panthers is a bit distorted dimensionally. I’ve not compared Meng’s bins to Dotle’s Drawings in Panzer Tracts so cant comment on their accuracy.
