Though I've heard conflicting reports regards their veracity.
UPDATE: OK. After some digging and the rather belated realization that Miyata is an anagram of Tamiya (thanks to Rick in the comments) I've determined that a company called Platz, IS releasing some Girls und Panzer kits.
However, this epic "box art" is unofficial and produced by a PixiV artist who goes by the handle of sdkfz221.
These look like well-made parodies though (I'll give them the benefit of the doubt, that they're not pirate-kit boxart from certain places that shall go nameless). The kitmaker is Tamiya, not Miyata, and the stars are flipped upside-down compared to the real company.
The good news is that there are GuP tank kits out there... if an $80 model kit appeals.

They placed the crew members correctly in the Panzer IV, but they blew it for the Lee.
Aya, the meganekko with twintails, is the 37mm gunner but they've put her in the sponson, not in the turret. (Aaaand, another catgirl bites the dust)
