The color-scheme of the mech is based on the armor-suit of Lex Luthor but the MOC's scale is much bigger than the original versions.

Panzerkampfwagen V Panther by Panzerbricks user Panzerbricks a.k.a. Legotron who is known for his great WW2 creations shared another great historical tank model Panzerkampfwagen V Panther in his photo-stream.

Maybe its not famous as the Tiger tanks but it is historically (arguably) the most effective tank after American M4 Sherman in WW2. The overall design of the hull is great as the previous creations of  Panzerbricks. I especially liked the design of the turret where the connection of the barrel to the turret is cylindrical like the original.
