Very cool, I like this hybrid. Looks like Hasegawa (light grey), Armourfast (dark grey), some ESCI donors and lots of improvisation?

I think you'll need a "lip" around the turret. It is mounted too high and exposing the turret ring.  It would become a vulnerable spot and an obvious aiming point for Allied AT and Tank gunners.

It'd become a game of "Pop the Turret Off the Panther" (a.k.a. "Pop Goes the Panther!").

If it's a matter of negative elevation (below horizontal), I'd suggest moving the turret slightly forward, the Panther turret is bigger than that of the E-50; so, moving the E-50 turret forward, so that the traverse-diameters intersect at the front of that of the Panther, should fix that issue without creating such a big shot-trap.

If it was to be an F it should have the late steel road wheel type not the dish type. That's a very bad miss match between the hull and turret, they should be flush. The side skirts would also be of the late Panther type and you could also add the I.R. night fighting equipment if you wanted.

Second that, the "lowered" turret changes the look a lot, and is more plausible, too.  :thumbsup:
